Arrived at this restaurant at nine thirty on a Thursday night. Had just been told" it's fries or pizza" from GPK and were blown away when we asked the waitress at this restaurant if they were serving meals and she invited us in so warmly. Keiko proved to be a little gem. Not only helping us with our choices but... More

I had a client send an apology for causing us to be out late a long way from where we live. My reply to her. You are welcome. It has enabled us to find a gorgeous little eclectic restaurant in Takapuna Superb, fresh food, good cheery service and nice easy music. Would never have found it if we weren't delivering... More

Pinot Plus is a warm, cozy wine bar that typifies that "a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine." The decor is somewhat European with its softly lit interior, deep red feature wall, the large blackboard and the old wine barrels with bar stools in their street-side seating area. A sommelier is available to offer advice and help... More

We recently had an evening meal at Pinot Plus with our son. It has changed hands and the selection of wines now on offer is greatly reduced which is such a shame as matching our wines to our meal was such a huge part of our previous very enjoyable experience here. In saying that our meals were very nice and... More

We dined for lunch here and will definitely be back for dinner. Generous and delicious meals cooked to perfection. Really worth a visit for friendly service. Not a large restaurant but the meno and meals make up for a smaller space. Congrats Pinot Plus!

Went here for lunch with my partner on a Groupon deal. Quite small and a bit stark in appearance so didn't have high expectations. Beyond pleasantly surprised. Food was absolutely beautiful. Wonderful flavors and good size portions. It was served with house wine which was also of great quality. Food and service just fantastic. It is such a shame that... More

Went for a day trip to Auckland in Takapuna and check for a good restaurant to have a nice lunch. The chef accepted to cook for me the risotto who normally is only served for dinner, it was delicious and after that I had the chocolate cake delightful. The French waitress knew perfectly the wines and served me a perfect... More

We went in here for lunch on a Sunday. Food was sooooo tasty and elegantly served. I had pork, lovely and moist and very tasty. We followed that up with desserts which really yummy. Restaurant is quite small, but has outside seating which is partially covered. Probably lovely in nice weather. Also have a dog water bowl, so obviously accept... More

No issues using a Groupon voucher for lunch. Warm and cosy restaurant with excellent food and wine. One of a very few that I would be happy to return and pay a full price for a meal.
