The atmosphere, decor background music awesome.
I am planning on visiting soon with my work colleagues as I have told them all about my experience. It was Excellent.
YES…food and service was great!
A very strategic Mediterranean/Turkish restaurant in the heart of Auckland CBD and they serve authentic, delicious food. Cosy atmosphere as a plus point.
Will definitely go back there.
The waiter who took our orders helped us choose our starters, which was really helpful because we weren’t quite sure. We ordered bread with 3 different dips he recommended, delicious. Our mains were great too, great presentation on the plate. We were really impressed.
The only downside I would say is that the food is a wee bit expensive for what it is, and it is not the biggest portion. But otherwise it is a great restaurant, fantastic atmosphere with really friendly and helpful staff
I used to be a semi-regular fixture at Mexican Cafe and would always walk past this place, finally curiosity got the better of me and I decided to have a late lunch here with a friend. It was around 3pm after the lunch rush, so it was just us in the restaurant. I ordered a Spinach Borek (spinach filo pastry) and my friend ordered a dish of fried seafood and french fries (we go to a Turkish restaurant and he orders fish’n'chips, what a Kiwi!). My Spinach Borek was delicious, I love spinach dishes in general but this was amazing! My friend thoroughly enjoyed his dish and the interesting Mediterranean sauces that came with it too.
When a restaurant is empty, I find it’s very easy for staff to often over-crowd diners in order to compensate for the lack of a crowd. Our waitress however was attentive without being pushy, coming around every now and then to fill up our water glasses and she always had a smile on her face! Service really makes all the difference, and we experienced fantastic service on this day. We both left feeling very satisfied and happy, and we will definitely be returning!
Firstly when we arrived our greeting wasn’t very welcoming – as though we were being a bother! We promptly ordered our drinks and our meals. Since my wife and I had just been to a large late mothers day lunch she just ordered the Turkish bread and I ordered the holumi starter. Our friends ordered mains.
When our drinks arrived the Mojito apparently tasted like they forgot to put any alcohol in it!
Half an hour later asked where our meals were (bear in mind 1 meal was bread and another was a starter) we were told 5 minutes. 15 minutes later our food arrived. One of our party didn’t end up with the correct order! We couldn’t do much as our show started in 15 minutes. The food was great, how ever when I took my last mouthful of beer as we went to to leave I felt something in my mouth – I spat out a plastic mint wrapper!!
When we went to pay my friend advised that she was given the wrong meal the waitress just said “so do you want to pay for the one you ordered, or the one you got?” considering what she ordered was a main and she ended up with a starter, what do you think?? When I put the wrapper on the counter and said this was in my beer glass, her response was “o that’s not very good…. That will be $30….”
Will never be back again!
As usual it didnt disappoint we had a great night my friends were really impressed and I will definitely be back
We all swapped seats 3 times during the night so nobody would be left out on the ends or the smaller table the whole night, I’m sure this didn’t make it easy for the waitresses, especially as we had vegetarians who had a seperate main, but they were very nice to us still. For a busy night the service was excellent.
The food was plentiful, tasty and what I expected from a trukish resturant.
I wanted a casual, friendly place where I could enjoy a shared meal with my friends and not break the bank doing so and I wasn’t let down at all.
I would happily go back again.
