23 Reviews for Mecca Viaduct
The food at this place should have been of a very high standard for the prices charged – it was very, very ordinary – if you want to charge like this you need to deliver and this place doesn’t. The bill was well in excess of what I paid for a very nice meal at a restaurant last night and when you are paying more for what in effect was two lots of eggs on toast and some coffee, than a restaurant meal, there is something seriously wrong.
The coffee – awful – what exactly do these baristas around town think that the flat part of a flat white means. Here’s a clue – it doesn’t mean half a cup of foam. If I wanted half a cup of foam I wouldn’t be ordering a FLAT white. Again if you are going to charge at the top end of the scale for your coffee then you need to deliver top coffee and spend the money it costs for an experienced barista. If you want to save money by employing inexperienced baristas then charge accordingly. $4.50 for a small tulip cup half full with foam is just offensive.
I wish more people would complain because while we all keep smiling sweetly and paying for poor standards then nothing will improve and NZ is being left behind other parts of the world now when it comes to Cafes.
On a positive note the servers were sweet and very pleasant.
Just appalling for a restaurant that charges what it does. No table clothes, dreadful services (salt shaker didn’t work – we had to borrow from the neighbours) – I will never visit this place again.
The worst part was that the manager asked me how the meal was but got very defensive and argumentative when I told him I hadn’t enjoyed it.
He raised his voice, and left me very humiliated in front of a group of colleagues.
In all, the experience and food did not live up to the prices and Mecca’s reputation elsewhere. If you do come here, don’t get the Couscous and Lamb!
won’t be going back.
Was a nice touch that they allowed selection from the breakfast menu at midday but they did say NO to start with..
Coffee was ok but they need to learn the difference between a Flat White and a Latte..
Pricing was good considering the location at the Viaduct, so if you are after an ok well proportioned, well cooked meal not a bad place to try.
Ordered the Eye-Fillet steak on mashed potato with mushrooms etc etc etc. The steak was ok perhaps a bit dry for a medium steak, but the most disappointing part of the meal was the mashed potato. You could taste that it wasn’t real potato it was the flaked potato stuff you add water to. Very disappointing for a restaurant of this type especially on the Viaduct with lots of tourists in the area – I really expected more – like real potatoes.
I don’t usually complain but felt I had to this time.
Recommended only if you have a lot of spare cash.
The service is friendly and efficient, the atmosphere is always fantastic, and the food is just to die for. I have never had a problem with the food at Mecca and the two of us always really enjoy dining there.
Keep up the good work Mecca Viaduct!
I was here for lunch with a girlfriend and she agreed the nonchalant attitude of the waiters and waitresses was off-putting (to say the least).
We walked up the stairs and stood there waiting until one male waiter decided to walk over.
He chose a table for us which was squashed up next to a pillar.
The service just got worse from there.
I ordered water three times to no avail. First from the waiter who seated us, then a blonde waitress who completely ignored the request, finally the first waiter who begrudgingly filled up our glasses.
To have such a location right on the Viaduct really warrants more appropriate standards of service. Especially since 2011 is the year of the Cup.
If tourists (arriving in flocks later this year) were to receive the same treatment we did, I doubt they would leave with a positive impression of the New Zealand tourism/food industry, judging by the unprofessional manner of the staff at Mecca.
Girls and boys working there, seriously consider smiling if you really want to hold pride of place on Auckland’s Viaduct harbour, the golden centre of culinary prowess.
Great service and my friend and I even considered tipping our waitress.
The set up they have includes your waitress, the person who takes the menu’s away and then someone else who does drinks etc.
It appears these people don’t communicate though. After dinner we asked for the desert menu and got our menu but after waiting for 15 minutes for the waitress to then take our order (and she never came) we decided we were actually quite full and payed our bill and left (without tipping).
Bummer for them.
Great food though!
