Great beer and atmosphere

Always happy to go here. The staff really know there beers and the range is always changing. The menu has a great range of bar snacks as well as a range of great meals. The food style is "pubish" but has something for everyone. The service is relaxed and friendly. There are lots of seating areas... read more

Have only had the chowder here as a meal and it was fine, I usually just get something like the chips and/or their delicious smoothies. Last time I came their selection of smoothies had severely decreased which I found a bit sad.

Our son chose the restaurant as he had been before. It was convenient to where we were staying. The meal was very nice, perhaps a little pricey but the service was friendly. The bar & outdoor area looked very nice but it was a bit stuffy & noisy where our table was so in hindsight could have changed tables.

An excellent range of NZ craft beers and ciders. Warm and friendly atmosphere and when the sun is out a great garden bar which is sheltered from the cold southerly winds. Full range of meals provided from bar snacks to a la carte. Have made group bookings in previous visits and areas have been reserved solely for our use. Try... More

We visited in a group of around 30. We had a whole area put aside for us. The service was efficient and friendly. We were given complimentary nibbles and garlic bread. We all ordered individually off the menu but the kitchen was able to send all the meals out at pretty much the same time - a fairly impressive achievement.... More

It's away from downtown, but I'm glad I stopped in. They have a great selection of local craft beers and other beers from around the country. Prices are reasonable. I just had burger but it was quite good too. It was a Saturday evening but was nice and quiet. Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the beers. Great... More

Came here for a catch up and the service was pretty average. The waiter had my brownie from behind the counter and expected me to get it from him (American guy) If I'm paying for a $6.50 Brownie I Expect it to be served to me on the table. All in all the food is really good but over priced!

Eureka has a fun, pub atmosphere: very warm and cozy in the Winter, with lots of good beer on tap, and some pleasant wines. The menu is varied, leaning towards carnivores but there's always salad for vegetarians (often with an egg on top). Service is mixed. They're inclined to leave you alone if you're in the outer/front room, but you... More
