    Outstanding experience at Aura. I wish I could have tried the whole menu but was more than satisfied with the braised pork belly and grilled asparagus. Paired with a chilled chardonnay and finished with the apple, lime and coconut sorbet. The view of the harbour completed the experience. Would definitely recommend.

    Great selection of drinks for decent prices. Online Reservations were easy, convenient and readily available at this time. Waiter was forward about recommendations however realized he mistakenly put in the wrong entree order but realized it and corrected it quickly as possible before it was brought out. Did not offer any complimentary fillers or discounts to make up for the extended wait time but was courteous and apologetic throughout the service and attentively checked on us.

    The mushroom risotto was fantastic and Simon was very attentive, he recommended an excellent Sauvanion Blanc to pair with the risotto.

    Location, location, location! Old saying certainly applies here! Setting and food were very good and 'reasonable' value for money! Primarily due to lack of main course dishes didn't come with very much. Now that said, my dish (Breast of Chicken) was very good and did have some sides. However, my partner had the Halibut and very little came with the main course. Extra sides would have to be ordered which were anywhere from $14-$20 on top of the $34. Again, the halibut itself was a good piece/size of fish and my partner really enjoyed it. Just not enough for a main course. Other than that, highly recommend Aura W/F Restaurant even for happy hour (3-5) where the menu was quite varied and reasonable which is saying a lot these days.

    Great views. Excellent food. Service was rushed and perfunctory, really detracted from the experience.

    Food was all delicious as usual! Portions are small for the price, but very tasty. Love the potatoes and the poached apple salad was perfect! Service by Kate was 10/10!
