My friends and I went in for dinner last week and were totally blown away by our meals. We shared the Hop smoked pate and the fried calamari to start. Not only was the calamari perfectly cooked but it was also accompanied by a vibrant orange and fennel salad which was unbelievably refreshing. The pate was velvety in texture and... More

A fantastic evening with friends and young children. I got a deal on 'groupon' for an amazing beer tasting and antipasto platter for two which was awesome!! Ten beer tastings in total and a great platter to accompany. The pizza was awesome too. Great staff who were really friendly and changed my booking twice with no hassles and even gave... More

Excellent dinner and service! The garlic bread starter was extra cheesy and delicious. Scallops and short rib dishes were exceptionally good. And the vegetarian risotto was terrific. Large beer selection. It was crowded, but we were able to talk at our table of 4 easily. Our server was cheerful and prompt, and helpful in making choices of food and drink.

Had a Groupon voucher for a beer tasting paddle and appetisers, and ordered a few sides to go with it. The beer paddle would have been great value at the full price with 10 small beers to taste, and we then ordered a pint each of our favourite. The deli board was also tasty and we ordered some shrimps and... More

Went there to get a beer and there were a lot to choose from. When you're unsure, you can try a beer for free. I was there around 2pm and it was quite empty. No idea how it is at night. I didn't order any food but the cheeseburger and the fries, someone else had ordered looked very good!

Greetings Niklas U, Thank you for your lovely feedback. I do remember serving you a Behemoth- U boat german red IPA that day. It was an oddly quiet afternoon, however we do get busy on sunny days when the terrace is generally full with drinks and dinning crowd. Both our cheese burger and chicken burger are amazing, you should come... More

Popped in here for brunch after the dismal performance by the All Blacks against Ireland. Smart menu choices available and slick service. Good coffee.

We came here on a blustery evening. Bin44 was warm and welcoming without being overpoweringly noisy like so many places on the waterfront. There were quite a few tables, all quite small. We were seated straight away, and given water. The menu was small and quite traditional pub food, which was beautifully done. I had the chicken pot pie which... More

Hi SarahfromAKL, Thank you for taking time to review bin 44. I am very pleased to hear about your great dining experience with us. Our steak and prawns, risotto and chicken pot pie dishes were very popular in winter. Choc cake was very popular as well, hence we must have sold out on the night, our apologies. We also have...

It was a cold and wet evening and we managed to get a table even when it looked busy. Great warm atmosphere and although the menu was not large there was enough of a selection to ensure all tastes were catered for. I had the steak and prawns and my wife had the Pork Belly. Both dishes were cooked and... More

A good stop for food with a selection of simple dishes in offer. They have both full meals and has snacks. The dishes were fresh, hot and well prepared. Service was friendly and helpful, although it did take a little while for the good to arrive. They do a broad selection of beers if that's your thing.
