Great upstairs atmosphere - especially when there's live music or a DJ. Unfortunately the food is lacklustre and the beers pricey - despite been set in the backpacker/student district. Tried to order several house beers but was talked out of it by bar staff who claimed it was 'av' - code for average. Ended up shelling out for Tiger instead.... More

Nice looking, atmospheric place. Lunch time on Sun, basically empty. Friendly girl behind the counter. Good tap selection (3 ciders too!). Food: pizza ok, but a bit disappointing; the sauce a bit too sweet and scarse. Peking chicken wrap not quite what described on the menu, but pretty ok tasting. The crispy noodle salad with it was just dresses with... More

Had dinner and drinks here. The stairs were a little dark, but this is probably the scale of the issues on the downside. Food was good and reasonably priced. The music was nicevand not too loud considering we were havingva meal. Service was good and friendly. Would recommend as a relaxed meal ina nice atmosphere.

Business group of 16 people- service was dreadful but pizza good, steak mediocre. Busy holiday season but we were the main customers and it was not a good experience!

As strangers on holiday in Auckland we went searching for an early morning decent cup of coffee while everybody else was in a hurry to get to work. None of the cafes around Fort and Queen Streets looked welcoming - Sierra Cafe was the best of a bad bunch in that regard. But their coffee was excellent and the muffin... More

Pitty that I can't rate this place as "good". It has a nice court yard where I hung out with my workmates. Food(pub food mainly) was ok but not excellent.

I would only advise coming here for drinks. The food service was very slow, our waitress had already said she didn't want us (a group of 10 out for a birthday meal) to stay too late as she had plans to go out after work.
