Who we are?

Hi, I’m David Scott. Welcome to TopReviews!

I’m a software developer by day, and the chief editor and publisher of TopReviews by night.

As a self-proclaimed foodie and traveller, I like researching and writing about great food and experiences around the city. And so, I started a blog and put my recommendations in it a few years ago, just to pass the time and work on my writing.

Once the blog started getting more traffic, I realized that my recommendations were actually helping people! This gave me an idea to upscale the blog—thus, TopReviews was born.

Together with a team of talented writers and reviewers, we set out to find the best of every experience that NZ has to offer. Through the years, we’ve expanded our search and have come to include almost everything under the sun, from home loans to washing machines.

Since our goal is to find the best of NZ, we also refined the way we write our reviews. If you’re curious about the way we make our reviews, you can check out our in-depth rating guide!

We only want to give our readers the best, and that’s why reader feedback is important to us. Should you have any feedback, concerns, or ideas that you want to share with us, we’re just an email away!

See you around!

Our Writers


After working in 9 countries and spending most of my life in the hospitality industry, I decided to take a leap of faith and jump into the world of writing. I've worn many hats throughout my long career yet I know I still have much to learn. Nowadays, I spend my time writing, eating good food, and travelling on my motorbike.
