We had an absolutely lovely meal at Touquet on Saturday night . We found the restaurant by accident and are very glad we did. The staff were authentic and attentive. The steak was the best my husband has ever had and my fish was delicious. The cheese board was very generous. We would go back at any time. Top marks.

Good food, food service. Aucklander's should support this place. Loved the duck!
We went on a Tuesday night, but quiet but that works in your favour

Very delicious meal. The Snapper was so fresh and the duck rich and unctuous. Desserts? Yum. Tried the special Tarte Tartin and the Chocolate and caramel tart. Both really delicious. Great service too.

Another favourite inner city spot. Been coming here for years, often to order the pork belly which is beautifully served and every time I've had dinner here a new amuse bouche. The chef and staff are always warm, friendly and attentive. I stop by in the evenings sometimes for wine and good cheese, for a quiet spot to unwind. This is lovely intimate place to come alone or bring a friend.

Been here on many occasions, have almost eaten my way through the entire menu! Touquet is a little bit of France in the Auckland CBD, and I can not speak highly enough of it!

Lovely small French bistro. Very friendly and helpful waitresses. Confit duck was tender and tasty. Eye fillet was cooked to perfection. Tarte Tatin had a clever twist. It's a deconstructed version of this traditional French dessert. Favourite restaurant in Auckland at the moment. Fully recommend.

Tried this bistro out for a quiet and quick mid week review. Pleasant bistro. Was a quick lunch and I had the Mediterranean tart which was pleasant if not stunning.

Good place and worth a visit if you are busy-  was surprised how quiet it was.

The salads are particularly good. Did not have any wine or other alcohol but the wine list did look small but nice quality.

We came here after finding a voucher on groupon. The food was really tasty but the place was quite empty.

I enjoyed every course and the ones that stood out are the pulled ox tail and pork belly.

More people need to come here to eat!

Delicious food and great atmosphere. I came here for my birthday and we all really enjoyed the food. Have been back a number of times since and recommended to others who have all thought it was great. The food is fresh and tasty with something for everyone. Highly recommended.

Great service. Great food. The mains menu is rather small, however they are always updating and changing this so that there is always variety. Ordered the Eye Fillet, which was delicious and the parsnip puree complimented the steak quite nicely. Definitely should give it a go.

A delightful little bistro with friendly attentive service. The ravioli was melt in your mouth delicious and the chocolate tart outstanding. Highly recommend a visit.

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!

We ordered the Pulled Ox tail and Chicken Liver Tourine as starters, the Hereford Rump steak and their mind-blowing Manuka honey creme brulee. Absolutely delicious food. The service was excellent. I definitely recommend this 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.
