Came to Euro on a Saturday night early with my son in tow, the staff were great and accepting of my son the food was well priced and was absolutely amazing!
I had the whitebait fritter, salmon and green tea sorbet, my son had the crab risotto and chocolate icecream and his uncle had the oysters and duck and tiramisu, just 100% perfect, could not have been better.
everything was perfectly cooked and balanced and all in a reasonable time and cost. I recommend to all. :-)
The bar is bright and vibrant and the buzz of after work drinks was in full flow. We were taken through to the dining part which was a lot darker than the bar and introduced to David who was almost brilliant throughout.Looking at the menus the first thing that struck me was how affordable the wine list was! Wines by the glass starting at $8 something I really wasn’t expecting and there were similar affordable by the bottle prices. I opted throughout the night for the wines under the “something different” section.The food was also surprisingly very well priced starting at $19 and going through until $26 for entrees and $28-$44 for mains, so far this had not been the overpriced small portioned Euro I had heard about!Starting at the entrees the buffalo mozzarella salad had previously been had at Jervois Steak House and it’s a simple yet delicious entrée of which the skill is finding amazing ingredients that simply speak for themselves, the terrine was great full of flavour and the dressing really finished off the dish well. I had the Long island duck legs next and it was a pleasure to eat with sweet cous cous which I’m not usually a fan of and a thick and creamy butter sauce complimented a rich perfectly confited duo of duck legs. Dish of the night by a mile. However my vegetarian wife was really looking forward to what sounded like a perfect dish for her but the tart slightly failed to delivered, don’t get me wrong she did really like it but on this occasion it was a bit small in comparison to the duck and also the tart was cold which really isn’t what you expect from a WOOD ROASTED dish. However she insist I reiterate that despite this she did enjoy the dish.On to dessert, generally after having some amazing flavours throughout the night the apple terrine was a bit of a let-down, refreshing yes but without too much taste, the warm chocolate pudding was cooked to perfection and was as good as you can get from a chocolate fondant.
Caught up with some old colleagues during the week and the decision was made to 'splash out' so Euro Restaurant was the ideal candidate.
We were all treated to an exceptional dining experience - from the service to the food and wine list, we couldn't fault the Euro team. Euro's menu is very exciting and the great thing is you don't get over-awed by it (and if you do, the staff are on hand to give you a hand).
My main of the Pork Belly was exceptional as was the Early Grey Ice cream that I shared with one of my companions.
A return to Euro is a given - thanks again.
We took some friends from Guernsey to Euro Restaurant to impress them with some of Auckland's fine dining. What a disappointment! The 4 of us were seated at a table less than a metre square so that it became so crowded with glasses and plates that the waiter had to ask us to empty the rest of the bread out of the basket and put it on our plates to make room for the main courses.The waiter was overly familiar, patted one of us on the shoulder, chuckled after every statement, hummed along to the featured music and felt he had to twice explain that evo is extra virgin oil. Re the music, one of the tunes was "Awimaway", in my opinion not suitable for a fine dining restaurant. When we are looking again for a 'fine dining' experience we will certainly steer clear of Euro Restaurant
Being extensive travelers our comments are from experience... poor service no napkins provided until asked for, lack of knowledge of menu and in a Caesar salad charging $4 extra for a total of 4 anchovies is simply appalling. Will not recommend this establishment to anyone!
Good food, but quite expensive. Service made up for the price though, so I guess it's true that you do pay for service!
Went there Fri around 6. The floor manager and staff ignored us. The manager was very unfriendly and quite rude.
We left, never to go back there.
Visitid Euro while on holiday at Christmas. Fantastic, a huge step up from the Bistro type cuisine served in Ashburton! Dessert FANTASTIC!
