Had been recommended this restaurant. Lovely setting. Food nice though pricey. They had rugs for sitting outside which was a nice touch.

On the advice of my daughter , a long- term Auckland resident, I dined here twice recently. The third visit will be tomorrow. Ortolano repays frequent visits! This is an attractive restaurant, very conveniently situated in Central Auckland, just a few steps from Britomart, the main station for Auckland. The food is a fresh take on classical French cuisine, it... More

Ate at Ortolana with family and friends, booked a day in advance and could only have an early table, no drama for us. The place is beautiful, staff are all friendly and smiley. The food though is the main draw, for this restaurant it's honestly exquisite, we had the burrata to start which was so yummy we nearly fainted! Mains... More

This is our third year celebrating our wedding anniversary with ortolana. As always fresh, light and flavoursome food paired with excellent service/menu knowledge. If you're looking for quality food, tasty and modern, and good value, then ortolana is the place for you. A seamless transition to milse for desert, as recommended by our waitress topped off the night. Highly recommend... More

I recently went tramping across the north island of New Zealand. In between trips I stopped in Auckland for a couple of day and had dinner at Ortolana. My experience was amazing. The service was professional, friendly and relaxed. I was dining by myself and the staff went out of their way to find a nice spot for me. I... More

I love Ortolana. The food never disappoints and much of their fresh produce comes straight from their farm. The menu has a good variety of dishes without becoming overwhelming. They are able to cater to dietary needs (allergies and food preferences). Service is excellent - helpful but not pushy, and attentive without hovering. I love sitting in the courtyard to... More

As regular vistors to Auckland we have been to Ortolana several times and have enjoyed every visit. There was a sameness to the food on this visit. The burrata is always a standout and worth a detour for this alone. However the base of each meal we ordered was identical and basically despite their farm produce seemed like a supermarket... More

Recently visited Ortolana . It is in a nice location in Britomart. Food is of a good quality and service was acceptable. I have had better food in Auckland but standard is acceptable and generally very good, they are very flexible with getting seating even though we had not booked. I would probably tend to use this restaurant more for... More
