Looking over iconic Eden Park, can't help but like the location. Indoor and outdoor seating options. Plenty of range with Mac's Beers and good choice of food.

Visited briefly and once again enjoyed the experience. Good choice of brews and other options. Would have been nice to see cocktails made without constant reference to the screen but they looked good.

It's Kingsland so the staff are too cool to smile but were friendly and I like the outside area, it's nice for a beer. But those beers are expensive, $11. There would need to be some amazing loyalty card system to make it a regular 'local'. The chips were amazing though, worth the trip alone for them! We only stayed... More

There were about 8 of us altogether and we had booked a table on-line. Yep it was there for us nicely tucked away. As our team came in progressively we ordered some pizza breads for nibbles and a selection of house beers. Good choices especially if you like Macs! Service was a bit cool to start with but soon changed... More

Nice bar, great outdoor area and comfy seats dotted around the place. Went in on a weekday evening and they shut quite early.

Love this place. The service is fantastic and there is an excellent selection of beer, wine and coctails. The food is also well worth a mention with a good range from tapas (give the Blue Cheese wontons a go) to excellent pizzas and good kiwi fare. There is something for everyone here - a good friendly local, intimate areas, family... More

Sharing is a key to a good food experience. Share a variety of Tapas dishes, add some bread with Hamon - the real one!!! And a paper thin pizza with pesto and cheese. Add some great beer or wine, and enjoy the great atmosphere. You won't regret it!

Popped in today for a few drinks and some food. I can honestly say this will be my new local (I live down the road) I've never had better service at a bar then I have had here. The polite blonde bartender is the most friendly girl I've met, she really made the experience here what it was.

Came here with friends from overseas for a sample of NZs beers. Not what we were looking for. This is a pseudo brew bar and the beers tasted like cheap European beers like fosters or carling.
