“A touch of Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

High quality, authentic Parisian-style bistro. Slick service and lovely atmosphere. Had the chicken special which was stunning..then crepes suzette where the waiter brought the burning brandy from the kitchen and flambeed the crepes. Good wine list by the glass. Just a note -- the carafes of wine ( as on the website ) are not available at dinner. Small back mark as I was with a non drinker and this size is perfect for me. Otherwise a 4.5

“I wish I could go to Pastis right now...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2012

I visited Auckland in May and spent a week there. I found Pastis on my second day, and it had immediately become my favorite. Excellent menu with traditional and unique items, impeccable service, great daily specials... I ended up returning four times in one week. The portion sizes are rather large, the presentation is beautiful; everything is in perfect harmony at Pastis. All the employees I met including the owner are from France, and they really created a unique slice of their country in the middle of Auckland. You simply can't go wrong with Pastis - if you like French cuisine, I am certain you'll love the experience!

“typique French bistro, good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Classic French bistro menu, food was pretty good, not bad lamb shank and superb chocolate fondant and creme brûlée. Service was excellent and really nice ambience, they even had an accordion player on while we were there.
