The only reason I ate at Tactics was because my company was paying for the night's accommodation, and breakfast and dinner was included in the charge-back. Otherwise I absolutely would have eaten elsewere. I stayed in the hotel on a Monday night, and Tactics restaurant was closed. Dinner was served in the small restaurant area off the side of the...

We stayed at the hotel prior to a cruise, and for convenience, decided to eat at the hotel. Although the meal was fine, it took over an hour to arrive. Apparently they only had one chef on duty, but the restaurant was by no means full. Next morning we took breakfast at the hotel which was obviouly full with guests... More

Had a breakfast special of $15 for a full breakfast, which had the worst selection of a cooked breakfast. I asked for the bacon to be made nice and crispy, but it certainly wasn't. Wouldn't eat there again for breakfast as there are restaurants nearby.

We were staying in the hotel and as the weather was not the best, decided to eat in-house. There is a good special each night - we ordered the Thursday special of lamb shank and roast vegetable for $18.50. This was good value, well cooked and with a tasty gravy. However it was cold and we both sent our meals... More

Generally I enjoy in house restaurants. The Copthorne's Tactic's Restaurant has a nice outlook over the harbour, comfortable & pleasant. The service was attentive but not over the top. Good selection of choices available, I chose a lamb main. My only concern was my meal was served luke warm, by the time I registered this it was nearly cold &... More

this first floor restaurant surprised us when we were struggling to find a reasonable, clean, and comfortable place to eat in Auckland that wasn't too far from the wharf. Excellent service, quality food, top location, good value, clean facilities. What more can I say ? do yourself a favour and try them, you will be pleasantly surprised.
