We went there for dinner and discovered amazing food and a nice atmosphere. We went there with a voucher and all four of us ordered something different for all three courses. I couldn’t fault any of the dishes. Service was also very good. This would be a great restaurant for a couple looking for a romantic night out or for anyone wanting to enjoy an amazing meal. Great restaurant!

What can we say, Fab little slice of Europe in central Auckland. We had a wonderful evening, the service was excellent, the atmosphere delightful, despite the road works and the food just fabulous from start to finish. We came with a voucher, had three courses and enjoyed every bite. Perfectly seasoned food, presented beautifully and an excellent wine chosen from a very interesting selection. We will totally be back !

Cosy little place with a nice atmosphere. Visited with a voucher on a Friday evening and really enjoyed the food. We had three courses and all were beautiful. Service was very good, attentive without being overbearing

We had lunch in a group of about 8. The food came out together was delicious. The Meals were flawless and so flavoursome. I have been left wanting more and will be back for dinner soon as have heard the chicken supreme is to die for!

Relaxed friendly staff make for an enjoyable meal.

Absolutely fantastic food for a fair price right in the center of the CBD :-) went in by chance, we where not disappointed and we are french! Gourmet but with great size servings, Antoine’s food is fresh and simple and will be sure to delight your taste buds! Don’t hesitate and go!

I wasn’t sure what to expect with this being a new place, but only one way to find out. What a treat! I visited just after Christmas for my birthday and everyone was blown away by their meals. Beautiful, fresh, delicious food at really reasonable prices. Delicious cocktails and a great blend of traditional and innovative offerings so there’s something for everyone. Can’t wait to come back and try the rest of the menu. Check out this lovely new place you won’t be disappointed.

From the cocktails to the coffee and the entrees to the desserts the presentation of the food and the staff was impeccable, a credit to their chef Antoine and all concerned an easy 5 stars..would recommend to anybody living in Auckland and beyond to visit over the Christmas break.
