The biggest drawing point of Eureka is always the beer (for my wife it's the brownie!). Don't often come here for dinner but often Friday evening drinks with platter or chips. Beer selection is always changing.

A great place for a beer, great choice of NZ craft beer. Good choice of food on the menu and tastes fantastic. Handy to stadium so great pre and post match or concert. Recommend

Came here for a working lunch. It is close to the University,. There is a lot of space with a cosy atmosphere. The service was pleasant and there were some very nice craft beers on tap. The lunch was average. Food and beers were moderately priced.

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. The deck and garden... 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
