Nice spot in town. Close to the wharf, and walking distance to the hotel we stay. The decor was spot on with the pearlescent scale shaped tiles wisely used on a bench and on the wall. and industrial style of the exposed timber posts mixed with soft lighting; big sharing table mixed with more intimate couch seats, huge open kitchen, friendly staff, food was amazing! Fresh, tasty, great for sharing, Highly recommended! What a great night to have for my first Auckland Trip. :) What a perfect into to the local food scene!

Lovely buzzing restaurant, large open kitchen, big long bench tables everyone piles onto together. Great background tunes. All round good vibe. The food is good too. Service was great. A nice social spot. Highly recommend

Had a great lunch at Amano. The Stracciatella for a starter set the scene and finished off with one of the best steaks I've had in a long time.

Fresh ingredients means the menu changes daily and I can't wait to go back and try another dish

This restaurant is in downtown Auckland, one block from the harborfront. It is located on a pedestrian mall and has a wonderful outdoor patio where you can watch the people come and go. Although the food was quite pricey and there wasn't an excessive amount of it ... it was VERY tasty. The service was good as well.
