Visited here for dinner tonight and got turned away by a guy in slacks because "you aren't allowed in after 9pm with kids" Won't be returning here again. The LCQ laws are pretty clear and obviously we weren't going to give the kids any booze though legally we are able to.

The location is great but everything else is terrible. The drinks were expensive - $17 for a mojito cocktail that was 90% ice. The meals took FOREVER to come and when they eventually came they were cold, like they had been sitting under an ineffective heat lamp for ages. Service was dreadful. I ordered chicken with my salad (which was... More

A tip, although the staff took drink orders at the table it wasn't made clear to us we needed to order our meals at the... More

Although service was a little slow, it was a great place for lunch. We all ate off the lunch menu and portions were plentiful and tasty. Most of us had the pulled pork baguette which came with slaw and chipotle dressing and we shared a bowl of thick wedges with bacon, cheese, sour cream and chilli sauce -just lovely. Pleasant...

Came here on a Wednesday night with a mate and we had a nice couple of hours drinking Savignon Blanc in a booth. Quiet night midweek in mid winter. Located underneath our old office in the Northern Steamship Building.

Had dinner with my partner. The beer was great had several pints, my partner enjoyed a cider or two. Unusual decor upturned lamp shades on the ceiling. Good standard food at fair price. Busy environment, with friendly staff. Will come again when next in Auckland

Great salt and pepper calamari, melt in the mouth perfection. Arancini balls were not good, very stodgy. Broccoli and cheese croquettes were very tasty. The service was good and the food arrived quickly.

This is an excellent bar to have a drink in. I have never had any food, but often pop in for a drink when passing. Goods beers and interesting decor.
