Work dinner for 20 people on a Friday at 7pm. Two table layout not well thought out so we reset it ourselves, they didn't mind but they should probably note for future set up. Drinks were very slow coming, the wait was terrible (20min). Bar appeared to cater more to outside drinking patrons than inside diners. Bar ran out of... More

We stopped here filling in time after a lunch close by. The best decision!! What a great spot! I wish I lived in Auckland to come here more often 😊 We came for a drink (wine) mostly but felt we should order food too. It was 3pm, we sat down and promptly someone came over to us with me yes... More

Just popped out the office for a quick lunch and just around the corner is the Marvel Bar! After a couple of glasses of Babich Albarino the lunch started to get a little longer, sun was shinning, so what! we went for the special which was John Dory and we were not disappointed. Great food in a waterfront setting.

We stopped here on a whim. Just to have a light bite and a couple of drinks. Large wine menu - many by the glass. Food was good, and picked a good NZ wine. Nice early afternoon stop. Friendly service. If in the area, good place to stop.

Anyone who visits this place beware. Make sure you have google on your phone as the waiters here will suggest you use it to know ingredients on the menu. Went there for dinner with family. Partner wanted to order a seafood dish. The waiter asked what sauce we want as there are two choices. We asked what one of them... More

Stopped here on a beautiful Spring afternoon to have a beer and something to eat. Even though the Viaduct was crowded with people out enjoying the weather we were able to be seated at a two-top on the edge of the pedestrian walkway. Great people watching right on the waterfront. We had a couple of Galicia's and fish and chips... More

Dined here on a spur of the moment decision on our first night in NZ, based upon Tripadviser ratings, and certainly were not disappointed. Very good food, sensibly priced, and completed by great drinks lists incl many NZ wines sold by the glass. Service was good too - very attentive without being overbearing. Will certainly return when we are next... More

Had dinner here for two. Came in early; restaurant was packed on a weekday after 7pm. Fronting the industrial pier, you can watch people and boats - forever. The quarter is rapidly changing into a hip living area, with lots of restaurants popping up and followed by large hotels (Sofitel already here, Park Hyatt under construction). Had half dozen oysters... More
