“360 degree views of Auckland Central”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013

Worth wile if you want to use the Sky Tower. Admission to just the sky tower is like $28 NZD for single entry, where if you eat at Orbit, you have the option of having an express lunch, which includes an entrée, main and a drink for $49p/p, and your allowed access to the sky tower 45 minutes before your reservation.
Well worth it.

“Sunning views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2013 via mobile

You really are paying for the views here. We were lucky to get a sunset meal time and got to experience the sunset and after dark. Truly gorgeous! However, we did find that whilst all the food is served beautifully and tastes delicious we could get food to the same high standard at several wineries in Blenheim. Based on that I would guess you're paying extra for the views. But the views are worth the price! Staff were friendly and happy to take photos of us at the table.

This restaurant serve fantastic, top quality food. The attention is very professional and the waiters are always good fun. The view of the city is awesome. Auckland is a beautiful city, and you get a piece of every angle during your visit. Absolutely recommended !

“Great meal to end our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Due to a missed connection we had to cancel our initial reservation on our first night in Auckland so chose to come back on our last night instead to round off our holiday.

The view can only be described as ‘wow’ as you rotate around seeing the changing Auckland skyline (we got 2 revolutions before leaving). Thankfully the food was also up to scratch too as the last time I did a revolving meal (not this one) it was a very poor affair.

We chose do to the 3 course $69 meal which provided great value for money when adding the prices up individually. Even the alcohol prices are very reasonable too given where you are.

Service was very prompt, you didn’t feel like you were waiting excessively long either for orders to be taken or for food to arrive besides the view out the window more than kept you occupied!
