    Always a favourite for business meals in the CBD. Great device, steaks, and an excellent wine list to add

    The Fairmont is a surprisingly great steak restaurant. Above a "blokey" pub, the food and service are excellent - this is a hidden treasure that I will mention to no one.

    My first time on the additional (2nd) floor which seemed less crowded - a plus. The steak was excellent - better than a well renowned steak restaurant in the CBD I attended earlier in the week - although the potato mash was a little dry. The staff were very good and keen to assist with information. Peter 19 Feb 2021

    We have lunched at The Fairmont many times; the food is always excellent & of a consistent quality. Delfina always make a lunch of a good steak & red wine a memorable meal.

    Food was lovely. Good wine but the service has slipped. Little things that should matter. No water on the table and the waitress cleared plates while one person was still eating. Like some roadside diner. But all the usual ambience is still there, even for a Monday.

    The Fairmont is always reliable. Great food and service with a good wine list. Well located for a business or "recreational" lunch. Good bar facilities downstairs.

About the restaurant

Sail Away The Fairmont restaurant is a one-of-a-kind relic from a former time. It’s housed in The Occidental Hotel which is an historic hotel dating from the 1850s. Legendary around Wynyard Square, the hotel is the oldest building in the area, its old-timey architecture transporting you back to another era. Inside though, the hotel is breezy and sophisticated, populated with a lot of businessy types on breaks or meeting up for work. The hotel’s pale blue walls and wooden skirtings may well make you feel like you’ve entered the top-deck dining room of the Titanic. The entree menu will spoil you with oysters done three ways, three more seafood dishes and a Peking duck pancake highlight. Mains are mostly steaks, and trust us, these solid servings are something to savour. Would you like a drink with that? The Fairmont is famous for its long wine list, which features over 100 different numbers and has even won the hotel an award. So come on down to Fairmont and sail away on a sea of deliciousness. Best Dish: the mushroom rib eye
