I have dined at this restaurant many times in the past and found the food to be exceptional, the service to be spot on, the ambience outstanding and overall been the reason why I keep returning for more. This is a restaurant that I always use for special occasions. My son was returning from Perth for a long awaited visit... More

Friendly, knowledgeable service. Food was beautifully presented and wine matched well. The only dampener on the evening was the rain!

Another throughly enjoyable evening, wonderful food, great service, attentive staff but give you time and room to enjoy your meal with out rushing you. And the small details that make it extra special like small heart chocolates on your plate and a rose as you leave

Went to Mikano for a family birthday dinner and had a great evening. Hadn't been there for a few years but the food and service was excellent. Attentive but not intrusive waitress and a superb location which got better as it got dark and the lights of the city came on.

What a fabulous location- hard to beat in Auckland. However- let down by service and food. Seafood restaurant which does rubbery over cooked scallops and rare steak when you order medium. We go for the stunning view, knowing the food and service will not be up to scratch- a real shame!

Tonight was a very entertaining night. The waitress was very friendly who always offered up an explanation to how the food prepared was paired. The food itself was cooked beautifully and for mind the best item was the eye fillet which was cooked with wild mushrooms, veges and kumara mash. I am most likely going to return here for another...

Our first visit with the family ( seven of us plus two kids aged five and two) for lunch. The restaurant is spacious with elegant decor and offers a window to life at Mechanics Bay. The Wow was the unique experience of having our meal and seeing helicopters land and take off. This was the star attraction for the two... More
