Returned for the first time since ownership change which must be about 2 years. I use to frequent Mondial at least 2-3 times per month sadly that won't be the case. Gone is the chalk board menu and now just a printed version. All the old favorites sausage& mash, lamb skews, chicken skews which were just delicious all gone. What... More

Four of us had the pleasure to dine and share Sangia on a mild Saturday night. The service is friendly and prompt. The food however is very tasty, filling and memorable. We will be back.

All tapas were delicious and priced about $12 to $15. We had tuna kebabs, Lamb, Cajun chicken, meatballs, prawns, calamari and finished off with churros. Delish!! Every dish was tasty and the prices are reasonable. A lovely way to nibble over an evening.

We went here as it was in out entertainment book. Four of us had many tapas to share. There was a good choice of wine and beer and the service was excellent. The food was excellent - so much so that we tried food like anchovies that only one of us was a fan of. We tried the chicken, pork,... More

Mondial is about as close to an authentic Barcelona tapas experience as you can have in Auckland. The tapas is excellent quality and quantity-wise, the range is especially varied, something for everyone. Favourites are the scallops with chorizo, escalivada and the beef meatballs in a tomato sauce. The concept of tapas is a bit foreign to many in New Zealand,... More

Cute unassuming little bar with great ambiance and some eclectic people, went with friends and sat out the back in the little courtyard area. Got the calamari with an amazing aioli and a great Mojito, I could have eaten another bowl of that calamari and will be going back with the Husband to sit in a corner and relax. Nice... More

Mondial is a smallish restaurant that specializes in tapas. The atmosphere is always buzzy, with lots of local people heading there most nights. This means that there is often a wait for a table. This isn't a problem as sangria is served from jugs at the counter (or you can order something else). The larger your group, the longer the... More

The type of place you would most likely walk past...thankfully I didn't. A little bit of Europe stuck in the middle of suburban Auckland. Well worth a visit.

A must start to any ones evening! Relax, people watch, sip sangria, glug a French beer, or swill a terrific red from the old country... The tapas transcend the ordinary by being so deliciously simple. The owners are always present and make you feel welcome... Great even for kids early on, but always welcome... In fact off there again this... More
