Service was fantastic. Asked for recommendations for what to eat and waitress had specific knowledge to advise. Each one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal even though the menu had unrecognisable ingredients. The cost was incredibly realistic. I would definitely seek to go again, and would trust that each menu item was going to be delicious.

We stopped here for lunch and sat outside, a perfect spot to watch the world go by! We shared 3 starters, cauliflower & aubergine, NZ mussells then soft crab shell sliders. Every one was absolutely excellent. Washed down with a local pale ale and a green tea. Thoroughly recommended.

It's best to order a few plates to share - everything was super tasty and we tried at least 7 different dishes on the menu. Would definitely come back again, our vegetarian friend was very impressed by a vegetarian selection on the menu.

We caught the ferry across from Auckland and found this good quality place with a seat on the footpath

A friend booked on the recommendation of several people but being a bit blasé I didn't really expect anything out of the ordinary as lots of places do nice lunches in Devonport. Wow was I surprised by Bette's. We three shared 4 dishes and every one of them was fantastic. Recommend sharing actually. Perfectly cooked with beautiful citrus / Asian... More

I'd been recommended this place by several people so I was eager to try it. The staff were lovely and very friendly. Unfortunately, the food did not live up to the positive buzz. I ordered the squid and the mussels. The squid was so over-seasoned and salty it was almost inedible. I hoped it was a fluke and was looking... More

I love sharing a carafe with a friend here. All filled with herbs and flowers - sitting outside on a summers evening in Devonport. Slightly more expensive that other places though -so go for a treat or a celebratory event!

Had to share my experience of Bette's. Superb food and cocktails served very quickly despite being very busy. Accommodating and friendly staff with the last of the beautiful summer sun in Devonport Auckland. Highly recommended

Fresh, delicious mix of flavours! Try the prawns with passion fruit. Enjoyed the small option plates. Gave us the opportunity to try lots of different dishes on the menu. Very hard to pick a favourite! Well worth a visit.

Met up with relations in Devonport and lunched at Bette's. The service was efficient and pleasant, orders were taken promptly and delivered quickly. The food was plated well and attractively as well as being cooked well. The restaurant is one that has discovered that happy medium where there is background music that is unobstrusive and allows for conversation. My wife... More
