I read all the reviews on this site before deciding to go, wish I had listened. I grew up in Maraetai and decided to go back there for my Birthday dinner with family. It was exactly what everyone has said on here, and worse. There were about 5 tables in total, we sat near the window and were attended quickly. Straight away we were told there was no Chicken or duck left and only 2 pieces of Salmon (how do you run out of Chicken breast?!?). We ordered antipasto platters for starters and they were OK, nothing special, but how hard is it to get that wrong. For mains we ordered 2 steaks, 2 salmon, 1 mussel pot. The steaks were cooked very well, good medium-rare, but they put about 100g of butter, so much that it covered the entire meat, melted down and now covered the whole plate. The salmon's were cooked to death, as white as paper, and the mussel's were underwhelming. Worse overall was the potato bake which was uncooked, completely raw in the middle, and absolutely inedible. We showed the waitress, she apologised and offered 2 new ones, we declined and walked out laughing. Overall it was very sad, I wanted so badly for the restaurant to be a nice meal at my favourite place in Auckland - instead it was terrible in every aspect. Don't go! When will Maraetai get a descent restaurant?!
