I had lunch here yesterday on the roof top terrace. My recollection from previous lunches was that this was a relaxed and cool place to go for lunch with a great little view and good food. Unfortunately my previous good experience was not to be repeated. Whilst I did not try one of the pizzas which I gather are okay... More

We have eaten in here before and the food is great - can recommend the pizzas! We recently popped in after an event at the Vector arena and this place is very cool. It has a great mix of people there and at a certain time they move all the tables and chairs out of the way and the place... More

It got busy due to the many concert goers. Had excellent service from the time we arrived until leaving. The waiter was knowledgeable and efficient and the food was... More

Having called in to have a drink on our first night in Auckland we returned the following night to eat. The bar/restaurant has been developed in what was a repair garage. The decor in minimal and the ceilings very high. It has a great atmosphere, hence our decision to return. We started with a plank of seafood consisting of hot... More

It's unfortunate that the owners/managers of this establishment don't seem to care what Tripadvisor patrons have to say since they never post responses. I would have to add my voice to the many before me by saying that the food was pretty good, the service was terrible. Nice upstairs patio with comfy couches and views over the port. Oysters were...

Poor service, ignorant staff, waited 25 minutes for a drink while others just pushed in line and were served. The Justin Bieber-esque bartender seemed to only want to serve females, wouldn't recommend this place to my worst enemy. I work in the hospitality industry and I will not be referring any of our guests to Tyler St or Britomart out... More

Unfortunately this bar took revenue from the New Years Eve party (Britomart Beach Party) but did not allow patrons in if they were wearing Jandals which was one of the advertising hooks that we all bought tickets for. Basically, they sell beer in a stylish industrial shick place but don't ever take guests there, you just don't know how they... More
