Lunch at Vue, top of Mercure Hotel, Customs Street East, Auckland. It had some wonderful service, although expected of a place like this, especially since there weren't that many patrons during high lunchtime. Nice light lunches without being skimpy - the food itself was quite regular (wish it had some more X-factor). A wonderful view if you sit in the right place (sea view is great minus the extreme winter sun. A good range of seating caters for all sorts of occasions. Also connected to a great lounge/bar area. Can't wait to try it for dinner!
