Dining Review: The Falls Restaurant – Henderson, Auckland

My NZ family and I went to The Falls Restaurant for dinner last night. We were greeted by a formal yet friendly waitress who led us to our table. We usually bring wine for dinner, but as it is fully licensed, we didn’t this time. 
Mom and Dad decided to get Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc (NZ$40), Chris got Heineken beer (around NZ$9), and I chose Chai Latte (NZ$4.50). 
We then had our mains. Mom chose Pan fried chicken Livers with bacon lardons, red onion jam on rustic croutons and sticky yakitori style sauce. Originally in the entrees menu for NZ$16.50, they can do it as a main dish for NZ$26.50.
Dad had Pan seared South Island Salmon with sesame crusted kumara & potato hashcake and citrus hollandaise sauce (NZ$33).
My honey chose Vegetarian Tarte Tatin, with shallots, slow roasted tomatoes, spinach & feta, and tomato & spiced apple coulis (NZ$28.50). It was lovely, but wasn’t filling enough for him.
I chose the Twice Cooked Freedom Farms Pork Belly with crackling & cider jus, and gratin potatoes (NZ$32.50). Some crackling bits were chewy, the gratin potato is nice, but not much flavor on the meat unfortunately, I have to add salt and pepper.
As this is included in the Entertainment Gold Card selection for fine and contemporary dining, we paid a little over what we usually pay for dinner. Food was good, but I would prefer to come back here for a very special occasion rather than on a weeknight dinner.
