A Ponsonby stalwart - come early or you may not get a seat, anywhere! Sunday sessions are legendary here. It's small, cosy and cute. Food is above gastro pub level and certainly something they put effort and pride into - but more often than not, it's an imbibing, not dining, venue. See the hottest young things and slightly older once were hottest things propped up outside here - great people watching. Good tunes too usually. Try the meatballs. Chapel is a must do pilgrimage.
Still one of my favourite bars in Auckland. Visited last week, got some yummy kumara chips, some hand sliced garlic bread, and some vegetarian styled meatballs - all were delicious. Good size portion on the chips. A glass of wine will cost you circa $10 or more, but that's typical pricing in Ponsonby bars. A nice place to chill out with friends.
One of my favorite place to grab a drink or dinner in Ponsonby, lots of happy memories here. They have pretty good pizzas but their bar snacks are quite tasty. Pretty big crowd so it gets crazy busy later on in the evening but it can be really fun with great music as well.
Great place to drink and catch up with friends. Food is excellent and well priced, a tribute to Luke Dallow who owns this well regarded establishment on Ponsonby Road. Good any night of the week but particularly busy on Friday and Saturday nights. Check out the Sunday afternoon sessions from 3pm with Thane and the guys from George FM mixing on the decks - a very pleasant afternoon of fun and frivolity. Really like the kumara chips here - they're special and a big portion for the price. Pizzas are good too.
Second time I have been here in a week. We chose to order 4 entree sized plates and share. Lovely pork belly, wasabi tempura shrimp, chargrilled veges and some lovely warmed olives. Presentation of the food was great. Love the selection of beers too.
