“Poor because of the lack of service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Walking in the door, not one waiter wanted to make eye contact with us to service or seat us...even on asking no smiles no nothing. Pyscho waiter scared us...he waa just simply rude. We ordered pizzas took over an hour to arrive when friends at the other end of the table arrived and ordered late and got theirs in 5 mins and still before ours! ! Food was tasty but wont be back because of the service! !!

“Good food, well presented”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014 via mobile



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 and cold salmon, prawns, fish pate and the like. It was nicely presented and equally tasty.
For main course I chose the beef burger which was enormous. Elsewhere on the table the pizza and ravioli were equally well received.
The bar has plenty of choice of beers and wines.
This is not fine dining, but if you want good quality pub food in an interesting setting I would recommend that you give Tyler Street a try.

“Good food, lousy service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

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 delicious as a starter, the fish burger with fries was tasty, as was my miso prawn salad on a nice bed of greens with avocado, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. Expensive for what it was - $4.5 per oyster (minimum of three must be ordered), $20 for the burger and $22 for the salad. Service was surly. Then one of the bartenders was being a goof behind the bar and actually took an empty water jug and started breathing into it (again, he was goofing around). This would have been OK if he had not then filled the SAME JUG with water, filled up some glasses and taken the glasses to a table. How disgusting.
