A wee bit of a wait when ordering my breakfast so in the end I went up to the counter to make my order "Oh sorry" said the barista - it was obvious she had a fair few coffees to make.
I had decided to order the eggs benedict and they were quite happy to swap ham for bacon. i asked about the difference between the two prices and I was told small and large "but I would recommend the large" - large it is.
My dish arrived on a large slice of bread with two eggs and quite a good amount of lovely smokey bacon. I thought the price was about right for the quantity and quality of food.

I really enjoy Finc but I was a bit disappointed by our last visit. The food is wonderful, but overpriced. A few of us ordered breakfast (at lunch time), and when asked whether I wanted the small or large size, I asked what the difference was. The small, according to the waitress, was quite large, so i went with that. What I got was one piece of brioche toast, with scrambled eggs only just on top, and a piece of warm smoked salmon. On a huge white plate. I wouldn't call that quite large. It was a very small lunch portion, in comparison to other people's portions. It was tasty, and of course you pay for salmon, but what was disappointing was when we went to pay, the menu price of $10 wasn't honored, because the $10 price is only for breakfast in the morning, not throughout the day. This wasn't mentioned to us when we ordered nor was it pointed out on the menu anywhere. So instead I was charged around $16 - had I known that, I would have had a more substantial meal for $16, or something from the counter that would have been more filling for $10. So the food was really good and tasty (hence the 8) but I put it down in service and presentation for that aspect of the meal.

Finc is in the centre of the Lido-Felix strip next to Wellington's Civic Square and is solid, if not inspiring. The location is sound - a high ceilinged space extending back from large windows, though it can be a bit airless on hot/humid days - and the food ranges from adequate to pretty good, with an emphasis on sustainable produce but not that much imagination.
Children are fairly well provided for: about half the tables have banquette seating along one wall and there's a good toy basket, though, and just to note, it has one of the less useable disabled/parent toilet I've ever seen, with the lightswitch accessible only after the door has been closed. Service is, well, a bit odd: a combination of attentive/helpful and seeming just to forget about you on occasion.

Had a very nice first experience at Finc. Restaurant was half full but we were promptly seated and our orders taken in a reasonable amount of time.
Food took a little while to come out but the restaurant had filled up at that point so it was understandable and not really that long. Wine could have come a little bit sooner but arrive just before our mains.
The food was fabulous! My chicken skewers were perfectly cooked and the accompanying sauces were fantastic. The salad was fresh and tasty. Perfectly sized portion. My friend had the beetroot and falafel salid which she enjoyed but did mention that the falafel was rather hard.
Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. I would definitely go back again!
