    Waterfront Café: July Mid-Winter VT Meeting

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sarah and I needed an excuse to come visit Auckland, and there was just such a reason when Kiwi decided to throw a mid-winter VT meeting. Her choice for the restaurant was the Waterfront Cafe, which is considered the most reasonably priced restaurant in a high price region of Auckland called the Viaduct Basin.

    The evening was very exciting, especially meeting that many VT Kiwis in one place. Some even brought their mothers :)

    For dinner, I had the lamb shanks which were very tasty, even without any mint jelly. I also got to enjoy several of the nice beers from the Monteith Brewery.

    Waterfront Café: Great food, waterfront location!

    This busy and laid-back restaurant is situated in the heart of downtown Auckland's waterfront restaurant area.
    At a July 2005 mid-winter get-together there we all had excellent dinners that were prepared well and speedily.
    The restaurant is a good place to meet before a night on the town, but not really a place for a quiet chat. There is a long bar in the restaurant and indoor-outdoor seating.

    Favorite Dish: I can recommend the sirloin steak in mushroom sauce. It comes with nicely roasted vegetables and somewhat incongruosly (for the middle of winter), a green salad.

    Waterfront Cafe: Great view of the waterfront

    Located within the Maritime Museum, but accessible to members of the pubic, The Waterfront Cafe gives a great view of one of the recreational parts of Auckland's waterfront, including the Hilton Hotel.
