This was very disappointing. The salads were average, the seafood options quite rich and the meat was grisly. Have eaten better in Auckland. Great views, but the food was not of the quality that I would have expected. Staff were ok but refused to let me swap tables despite an empty restaurant. No ambience, its a buffet with people coming and going all the time. Felt like a waiting room. Wouldnt recommend. Views are great but you can eat better elsewhere.

We've been to the Observatory a couple of times and really enjoyed ourselves. Great views, great food and service and the selection is awesome, there is definatley something for every taste there. We have found that the lunch run at the Observatory is more fitting for us, with kids, and will be going back time and again :) And you get free entry into Sky Tower, which makes it a very cost effective meal :)

If we ever have overseas visitors, this is the place I take them. Not only is the view and food spectacular but the service is amazing.
I find the price very reasonable considering it includes your meal and a visit to the main observation level.
Lucky for me we have our brother & sister inlaw staying this week, and we are off to the Observatory again tomorrow night.
