3rd October 2010 We went to 'The Port' after shopping at the market on Sunday morning, it was a beautiful day and there were people everywhere. We managed to get a seat outside - which was great but unfortunately this was the only highlight of our dining experience.
After managing to get our coffee order wrong, our decidedly average coffee turned up (milk poorly frothed). All Wellingtonians expect a better latte! We had heard other tables inquiring about the status of their meals and after 30 minutes, we inquired to be told there was a 30-45min wait, and we were a tad annoyed that this information was withheld upfront. It became dreadfully apparent that the staff and set-up were completely overwhlemed.
When our food finally showed up, my poached eggs where totally overcooked, to the point that they were basically hard boiled. I took the risk of pointing this out, and the waitress simply said something about letting the kitchen know. An apology would have been nice. Unfortunately the French toast didn't fare much better, it lacked both sufficient maple syrup and there was only one half of an uncooked banana. Sub-par food at $15+ a plate!
All in all, it was a dismal dining experience with both the service and the food well below par. Apart from the location (1 star for location), this 'restaurant' has very little going for it. We suggest you give this one a miss, we wont be going back.
