De Fontein is situated in a prime spot in Mission Bay. The balcony seating lured me and my partner in. And after all, how could you go wrong with Belgian beer, frites and beautiful NZ green-lipped mussels? It didn't start off well when I had...More

Description
De Fontein is located in the heart of Mission Bay, just 8 minutes drive from Auckland's CBD, and is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, especially from the sun drenched balcony overlooking the bay. We proudly serve authentic Belgian cuisine complimented by an extensive selection of fine Belgian beers & some of the best wines from NZ and Australia. We recommend you try our signature steaming mussel pots, or our famous mussel platters.
