Portions are suitable for pricing. My table favourite was the steak meal. Fish&chips was very average, especially from a seafood restaurant? The salad that comes with it was delicious though, highlight of that meal. Chicken again was very average. Lovely setting and warm ambience. Nice experience overall but nothing exceptional that would have us returning

I don't know how this place got so many good reviews. They might have not ordered seafood platter. The seafood platter is edible but awful considering the price we paid. My suggestion is: DO NOT order seafood platter. The prawn quality is of cheap frozen goods. The prawn salad is so soggy. There is huge amount of water sitting at the bottom of glass. Mussel doesn't have the sweetness as if they are from frozen goods not mentioning the texture is overcooked and rubbery. The scallop wrapped in bacon is also rubbery and over cooked. The breaded squid is tasteless and soft. The service isn't up to standard either. It's simply not tentative enough. Several waiters passed by without offering any dessert menu as if there is no one sitting in our table. The food quality is more like a bar, and not qualified for a "restaurant".

Good service and nice seafood menu to choose from. Calamari was tasty and fresh. Plenty big enough for a lunch. Defiantly returning to this place

TLR&B is a place has a beautiful dining room and on the other side of the building, there's a really nice looking bar. We've dined here as a family of 8 twice so far and together have managed to order most of the things on the menu. It's sad to see that on the Saturday nights when we've been, the dining room has only had 1 to 2 other couples dining. As I think this venue has a lot going for it. The menu is varied and the staff are great.

Celebrated a big "0" birthday on the 6 June in the newly renovated function room at the Landing Restaurant and Bar. The organisation was spot on and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone had a fantastic night. I have received great feedback from my guests who loved the great atmosphere , the food and professional and friendly service from the staff.

I almost don't want to write a review of this place. I've been here maybe a dozen times over the last little while. It's really good for a casual lunch. It's out of the way but close to the motorway. The service is good. The speed of service is fast. I can leave the office eat, have a glass of wine or two and be back in the office in an hour. The food is clean and tasty. During the week they have a 2 course lunch special for $25. I have lost count of the number of prawn cocktails and gurnard and chips I've put away over the last couple of months. I need to find a nice salad place and renew my gym membership! I've given this place 4 stars. It's probably worth more than that.

Top quality food here - my steak was cooked perfectly and my daughter's prawn risotto was pronounced to be absolutely delicious. Great service and smiles all round.
Back again (June 2015) and because we enjoyed the food so much last time, we ordered the same again and thoroughly enjoyed it. The portions are generous and filling but we managed to finish off the meal on a sweet note by ordering a single dessert and 2 spoons ! Bliss.

Bit on the pricey side, but it's worth every penny. Oysters are fresh and tasty, and the steak I had was perfectly cooked, garnished with bacon, potato bake and beans. Atmosphere is intimate, will go there again at some point soon.

We have been, as a Company, to The Landing Restaurant 3 times now, the last time being 10th December & the experience has been outstanding. The food is fantastic, 2 of the functions were Xmas themed & the table layout & planning was amazing, service is brilliant & the food is always delicious. Nothing was too much trouble. Would always go back again. We also have been on a Sunday for Pizza & a Wine while out cycling, they do a great Pizza. Highly recommend.

We have had 2 special celebration functions at the Landing in the last 18 months. The last being on Saturday 2 November 2013. The staff were attentive and accommodating from the start of planning for both functions till the very last minute on the night. Our guests raved about the delicious food, the great venue and how organized and smoothly both functions went. We highly recommend The Landing for its exceptional service and food but mostly for the professionalism and warmth of such an outstanding team

We enjoyed another visit to The Landing in Onehunga last night.
A drink in the sports bar and a meal in the adjacent restaurant went well. This place is a hidden gem!
Easy parking, hospitable staff, stately premises, generous delicious meals, make for a comforting night out.
Tho I am in trouble for not being able to take my eyes off waitress.

We came here to treat my Dad for father's day as he'd talked about coming here for a long time. The food was fantastic, we ordered the seafood platter - the food was both plentiful and delicious.
The staff were amazing right through out and we'd like to thank them especially for all their help.

Went there on a cold, raining Sunday night and the atmosphere was amazing. We sat next to the fire and told if its too hot they could turn it down for us, it was very cosy and the waiter was very attentive, professional and great at his job.
He was very friendly and provided great customer service.
I had the fish & chips and my partner had the Sunday Oyster special with garlic bread and we were not left disappointed. The fish and oysters were fresh and the serving size was definitely worth the price. It is definitely worth going to if you enjoy fresh seafood and well cooked and portioned meals. The service is personable and we will definitely be going back.

Attentive service despite the wait staff having to also look after a large table. I had the crispy skinned snapper. It was served on a bed of mash which sort of killed any crispyness there may have been. But it still tasted good. The head waitress is consistently professional yet still personable and friendly. I'm so pleased Onehunga has somewhere open in the evenings I can take friends to that isn't a takeaway bar or workingman's club!

Very good dinner here recently. Had a large group and they accomodated us very well.
I found it kind of funny that one of the guys working there looked like the cat that got the cream.
Can't really fault the place.
I have been back and the service is really good, they are good at organising things.
I got the fish and chips special and did not really like the fish. However the cheesecake and tiramisu were delicious!

Had lunch here today and it was lovely sitting by the fire. The waitress was very attentive and friendly and the food was good. Opted for the $20 menu with an entree and a main. The seafood chowder was good and thank goodness it didn't have any cream (which was offered) as it would be hard to eat that and a main. The chowder was served with a generous piece of garlic bread. The main was fish and chips, fresh gurnard and light crunchy batter and wasabi mayo (could have had a bit more wasabi for me). The chips were also light and crunchy - just would have liked a bit more salad with the meal, but to be fair it was "fish and chips". Even had a glass of wine with the meal for $5 - so all good!

What a fantastic venue - cool atmosphere and the food was great! I overheard that the owner was putting a lot of work into the place and i must say the place looks great - even has one of those things from the titanic (the ship speed control maybe?) that you can ring and feel 12 again! Not being much of a seafood person i ordered the steak as my main. PERFECTLY cooked, and i kept having difficulty choosing what to eat as my next mouthful - the beans and potato tasted just as good! I also tried a few scallops from my partners entree - they were really good too and i loved the sauce they were in. Lastly i had the brownie which topped off the meal nicely - i then rolled out of there full as a bull. Only criticism? The girls bathrooms could be done up a little nicer - loved the 'inbound' sign for girls and 'outbound' for guys though - a very cool touch!

Once we had entered the restaurant we were greeted by a very friendly waitress, taken to our table and we were well lokked after.
Although the menu selections were small the food arrived in a very quick manner and was fantastic. Overall for 2 entree's 2 mains 2 desserts and 4 drinks 9/10 $115.00.
Will be back!
