The food was good and had good presentation. The restaurant, of course, has a nice view and rotates 360 degrees in about an hour. Also the dinner reservation includes going up to the observation deck for 45 minutes before your dinner, which is a nice bonus. FYI, they will not let you take left-overs home, but don't tell you this... More

Spent the afternoon with family having lunch at this amazing place. The views were out of this world - spectacular in fact!! Fantastic 360 degree views over the whole of Auckland. Two years earlier we had our wedding dinner reception here at the Orbit restaurant which was just perfect, and completed a perfect day! Highly recommend!!

Our local tour guide selected this "pretty fab" place for a special farewell dinner. The 360 views from the 52nd floor were indeed fabulous! The food and service were good, making it a special night to remember.

Came here for my wife's birthday. Good food, good wines and of course, the best view in town.... We've been here a few times, it never disappoints.

Went there for Valentines Day dinner. The view was amazing obviously! Top of Auckland. But the food and the service was poor. Wait staff seemed very inexperienced banging things around the table. While a some food had an alright taste some just had no flavour. Would not rush off there again and will not be recommending very highly.. 2 Stars.

We have been here many times and took our overseas friends who were in ore of the view and the restaurant. The Orbit did not fail to impress and we enjoyed our meals very much.

The ORBIT REVOLVING RESTAURANT is top class!!!. The food is divine, the service is second to none and the view of Auckland City is simply breath taking!!!! There is no week end/holiday additional service charge either - and for a little more than the fee to visit the lookout on Level 51, it is worth every cent to book a... More

Great to take visitors. The ride up can be hairy if you're not expecting it. Great to people watch. The food is average as is the service but it is busy. Visitors of all age can enjoy eating here as it is well catered for the mobility challenged.

This was the first time we'd dined in a revolving restaurant and it was awesome. The atmosphere was nice and there were wonderful views of the city. The service was good, as was the food. I'm sure there are cheaper places to eat, but we felt it was well worth the higher prices for the experience.

We enjoyed the whole experience - it was a beautiful clear day and the views were superb. Loved the revolving floor. The staff were attentive and the presentation of the food attractive. All the food tasted good, although it would have suited us to have had more savoury and less sweet fancies. It's difficult to gauge value for money, as... More
