Cin Cin is a very fashionable restaurant and one of the oldest established restaurants in the city. It has very unique location in the old Ferry Building overlooking the water. The setting is luxurious, high ceilings, granite and beautiful table settings. The flavour is Italian and Asian with pastas, risottos and noodles. They also have wood-fired pizzas as well as yellowfin tuna with warm sushi rice and spring onion, honey soy vinaigrette. They provide an extensive wine list also. It is recommend that you book because it is possible.
Open Noon – 11.00pm Mon- Thurs and Sun, noon – midnight Fri and Sat.
The best thing about CinCin on Quay (pronounced Chin chin), is the setting. This is one of Auckland's upper market restaurants. Personally, I thought it was a bit over rated. I went there for lunch with workmates and we had a very snooty waiter. When I asked for a steak knife I was made to feel like a philistine! They didn't have one and the fact I asked seemed to make the waiter incredulous! As for the steak, it was expensive, small and had some grissle in it! Nice view though.
Favorite Dish: If you want a delicious steak, at a good price, go to Zavito Cafe and Bar in Mairangi Bay, on Auckland's North Shore - big meal, good price, and delicious.
