Six Chairs Missing is located on new Regent Street amongst many other eating places. Casual diners can eat downstairs with the main seating area upstairs. The decor basic and the tables generally quite small.
The service was fairly quick and the food fairly good. Main meal prices ranged from approx $22 (for a single Lamb Shank) to $36 for the Rack of Lamb. Entrees were around $12 and deserts the same with a couple of cheaper options.
You can bring your own wine here at a cost of $5 per bottle for corkage - makes the overall meal cheaper. We spent $112 for the two of us.
Favorite Dish: The Lamb Shanks were nice but not the best I've had. I had the Seafood Chowder as an Entree and it was really good.
Somewhat off the beaten path (in winter), on New Regent St, is a small coffehouse that serves ice cream and coffe, but also full meals. I stopped here while waiting for the tram to pass by, because the Spanish style architecture provided a nice backdrop for my tram photo.
Favorite Dish: Latte and ice cream, NZ$ 6.50
