13 Reviews for Molten Restaurant
Food: Nibbled on the eggplant tortellini for starters and had the snapper for main. Was good enough to write about – put it that way! Dessert was the Dutch Kiss – like a homemade Wagon Wheel biscuit – yum!
Service: Excellent. Attentive but not annoying. We arrived late, ate around 9pm and were the last to leave but no one hurried us up.
Cost: I was lucky enough not to see the bill, but it was worth every penny I did not pay
Stand out feature: The expansive wine list, and the many ways you could read it. If you love your wine, you will love Molten.
Will I go back? Most probably.
The entrees are over priced ($25 for 1 buffalo mozzarella ball and a few bits of rocket, pretty bland) but the mains (I had the Broadbill, delicious) was well priced. Desserts (our table had a several from the menu) were well executed.
The only big let down of the evening was poor service. Slow with taking food orders and even slower to take our drinks order.
Great food but the evening slightly let down by inattentive service.
The beers were fantastic – I ordered the (read: three) Hawkes Bay Pilsner which went down a treat. Had the special for the day which was kingfish on a risotto – cooked to perfection. Beautiful and moist, a great meal. Would highly recommend.
The food is fantastic and serviced in a semi-formal atmosphere.
I totally recommend this venue. I have gone back since and was not disappointed. Neither will you be.
