We dined at Zeytin while on holiday at the Mount. As we walked in, the staff greeted us a warm welcome. From the get go the service was excellent from the recommendation of wine to the selection of all three meals. Highly recommend you dine here. Thank you, we will come back next time we are visiting.

This is our "go to place " when visiting The Mount as we love the menu which is a wee bit different to what we usually eat. Service was with a smile and people arriving on a chilly night was great for this usual quiet time of the year.
We'll be back and thankyou for your genorosity having First Table available.

I have no complaints, we stopped here on our way back up to Auckland. We ordered the Beef Moussaka and the Beef Cheek, both were wonderful, I liked the Moussaka the most, it has wonderful proportions and a variety of salad, Hummus and couscous and tasted delicious.

They had some reasonably priced wine and the service was attentive and prompt. I would happily recommend Zeytin to anyone who would like a nice meal out.

We had a pleasant dining experience at Zeytin. We weren't quite sure what to expect at first, however, the food came quickly and the meals were decent sized and tasty. The pizza base is made in house and you can taste the difference as it has a really yummy texture. We also ordered a beef dish which was delicious and the baked brie which was tasty and came with a generous serving of bread! The dessert was also good- banoffee pie is delicious and the creme brulee was not what we expected (served cold?) but was still tasty. The staff were kind and helpful with our two children, bringing out crayons and paper to keep them occupied while we waited.
A pleasant dining experience and we would definitely go back. x

This was by far the worst dining experience I have ever had and I dine out a lot. Should have known it would not have been great when the waitress spent more time on checking herself out in the mirror than what we were saying. After they told us for the third time (and 2 hours) that our meals had still not been ordered at the kitchen we left. I came from Taupo and planned to take my parents out for a nice meal and we ended up having Chinese. The waitress seemed to ignore us although we were in full view with no meals or drinks, she then argued in full view with another waitress and was full of excuses. The last time we heard our meals had not been ordered the waitress offered for us to order something that would be quick to cook of which we decided to leave.
We did have the Meze Board, and that was delicious and well presented, but not enough for dinner for 4, thank god they actually got that to us. The toilet was badly leaking all over the floor and when told they did not seem too interested either. Wont be going back again.

This restaurant has character and very friendly staff. The food was enjoyable and the serving sizes are massive. I could have fed a small nation with the steak and although I couldn't eat it all, it was cooked to a perfect medium rare. I think everyone both young and old will enjoy this restaurant.

My partner and I enjoyed our dinner at Zeytin it was quiet and delicious. Our favourite part of the First Table idea is that we get service and are out of the restaurant before they ever get busy. We will definitely be going back to Zeytin and definitely using First Table website again.

I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Zeytin. Our group of four had a great table and we were definitely looked after by the waitresses. The pizzas were an excellent size and my Iskender was generously portioned too. We were very impressed and will be back to try more pizza flavours

Zeytins was awesome, felt so welcome the moment we entered, service was great! Food was very good, what was absolutely amazing was the iced chocolate frappe, the best one I've ever had. Heaps of food for what you pay for, couldn't finish it so we took some away with us. Great restaurant, will probably be back there some time.

We had a very pleasant dining experience and the service provided by the young lady who was our waitress throughout the meal was exemplary.We were also placed in a great position, by the door, which was lovely as it was a very warm evening. The food was generous and tasty, especially the garlic bread. Thank you Zeytin at the Mount!

The restaurant had a cool setup. We were seated near the front and could see the main street. We ordered beef cheeks and a pizza. The meals were huge! The food was delicious and very fresh. We loved our meals but couldn't even finish them (which is rare for us) the service was friendly. Would go back :)

The casual friendly atmosphere was my first impression and we were immediately greeted by the waitress when we arrived. Service was prompt and efficient with very little waiting time between courses. The food was cooked well and there was plenty of it, though the flavours were a little bland for my tastes. There seemed to be a lot of lettuce on both the starter and main course. So a more 'interesting ' salad would improve the meal, I think. All in all a pleasant place to eat.

The atmosphere is nice, the food is nice and the service is prompt and with a smile. What more could we want from a meal? Perhaps a little less greenery in the salad..

We were placed at a really nice table and were well looked after and did not have to wait long for any of the courses.. We usually can afford one course each but with using first table at the already reasonably pricing we were able to afford three courses plus drinks... The venue was great and was buzzing. We did get some time to ourselves to start with which we enjoyed. We came away feeling very satisfied and refreshed as if we been on holiday without feeling like we spent too much .. overall if was an memorable time and we like to go back and try other dishes and relax in the great atmosphere ...
