Pescado Cafe and Tapas Bar –

Reviewed by FiFi, July 2016

The Place:

There was plenty of seating indoors and outdoors.  You could chose from the cabinet or order off the scrumptious menu that includes vegetarian and gluten-free options.  There was soft music playing in the  background.  You had three bene options of Benedict (bacon), Montreal (salmon) or smoked chicken which I hadn’t seen as an option before.

The Service:

The wait staff were really friendly and the food came out at lightening speed.

The Presentation:

The dish was complimented by the sprinkle of parsley and touch of olive oil on the plate.

  • The Montreal – overall the quantity and taste were great.
  • The Eggs – were cooked perfectly.  They were both runny and warm.
  • The Salmon – had the smoky, slightly salty taste that I enjoy and there was just the right amount.
  • The Hashbrown – was lovely and hot.
  • The Hollandaise – was homemade with a tinge of a tang.
  • The Bread – was toasted perfectly and had a lovely crunch to it.

 Would We Go Again?

I would go again just to try the smoked chicken bene option.


Style: 6/10 – Classic.

Taste: 6/10 – the flavour combination was just right.  the hollandaise was the star of the dish.

Originality: 7/10 – just a classic bene, however the option of the smoked chicken sounds delicious.

Value: 6/10 – all three options were $18.50

Eggs: 8/10 – were great.

Overall score: 6/10

North Wharf, Jellicoe Street, Auckland Central, 1010
