Cuisine: A La Carte, International, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

Overlooking Auckland's glittering Prince's Wharf, Y-Not has been serving modern NZ cuisine for ten amazing years. It all boils down to one question; why not?

Its European-style interior is bright, breezy and exudes summer vibes all year round. Think of a French bistro with its signature red and white tablecloths, wicker chairs and romantic feels and you're on the money. And you can just imagine how awesome their patio is. Not only is it right next to the water, but it also accommodates lots of you fun-loving folks which only means a buzzing dining space that's never lacking in atmosphere.

Their menu features pizza, pasta and heaps of meaty mains for you to get your teeth stuck into. But first, why not begin with melt-in-the-mouth beef carpaccio, chilli tiger prawn cullets or their creamy seafood chowder? Then you'll be ready to tackle a mammoth pizza. And their doughy delights certainly don't play by the rules; toppings include peppered beef, satay chicken and tiger prawns. And nothing marks a special occasion like their roasted duck risotto that is gooey, creamy and rich in flavour.

Other mains include classic Kiwi favourites like pork belly, snapper with mash, lamb shank, venison fillet and the British import, fish and chips! And when all the plates are wiped clean, ain't no better way to enjoy the view than with a tropical mango cocktail or a chilli Margarita. Yes, summer really is an all-year thing over here!

Great location. Staff were super attentive, friendly and fast! Restaurant does ok a little tired compared to the other venues around it. Food was nice enough with a large variety. Perhaps a little decor and menu makeover would give this restaurant the wow factor it has the potential to have. We would go back because the staff were so lovely!

Such delicious food. Staff were lovely and attentive but some of them struggled with their English. However that didn’t matter at all, I just felt it was a little stressful for them.

Good wine selection although one white wine was unavailable.
We had seafood platter and it was excellent not much fried seafood with is good.
Desert was ok but could have been better presented.
We paid the bill and then were called back as we had been overcharged by $20. Thanks for that!

Beautiful spot for a restaurant right in the waters edge. Attentive waitress. Food was really well presented and desserts were beautiful. Ran out of Oysters and chocolate dessert though. Overall was great.

In general was a good experience. We went so early (5:30) that thankfully was not busy at all so all the food came really fast and in order that we've requested. Food was yum - not super fancy - but definitely a great portion! Atmosphere is great, harbour views and alright service!
