We recently visited a local restaurant named River Plate Restaurant located at the Manurewa Returned Services Association in Auckland New Zealand. We visited on February 14th 2017 – yes on Valentines Day as a family to dine and discover what was on offer for a simple $35 we had many options to choose from including:

We started with the mushroom tartlet which was similar to a quiche and absolutely delicious with the mushroom cooked to perfection, it was a delight, one of our volunteers decided to start with the shrimp cocktail who mentioned that it was also divine and the sauce was also very well done.

We then opted for the mains 3 people at the table ordered the pork and 1 ordered the chicken roulade – again we were not disappointed – the pork, vegetables, mashed potato, apple sauce and crackle were all cooked to perfection and the chicken had all the delightful flavors – it was fine dining at its best in the middle of a local RSA.

Then came the most scrumptious dessert, death by chocolate and  Eaton mess – the death by chocolate was exactly that with white chocolate, dark chocolate and milk chocolate and cream and chocolate mousse you could not fault this dish it was delicious from start to finish – the Eaton Mess also got a very positive review in that it had the perfect balance of yogurt, cream, berries and marshmallows.

Overall, it was a delightful experience – our local RSA Restaurant named Riverplate restaurant provide you with the most generous portions and the most delicious meals that we just could not find any faults with the food – and its at very affordable prices. You should note that it is within an RSA building and you will have to go through the entrance of the RSA to get to the Restaurant – once in the restaurant you will be able to choose your seat and someone will take your order – after your meal simply put your dishes in the sink and you can help yourself to free tea and coffee to finish off a wonderful meal.
