It was our first time to Auckland and our party of 3 couples were staying at a hotel close to The Bluestone Room. I had read on TA that this restaurant was very, very close to where we were staying and it was rated #28 out of 948 restaurants.
At first, I couldn't find the bar/restaurant. It's located on a small side street between Albert and Queen Streets. In fact, when I finally found it, it was located right next to where I was staying.
We walked in around noon on a Friday to check their menu for dinner and I noticed they have every brand of Monteith's beer on draught. I love Monteith's beer. Wow, I thought this was destiny - good food and great beer right next to where I'm staying.
Sad to say, we were told that they don't serve dinners on Friday night. You see, Friday night is more for snacks and drinks. What a disappointment. Anyway, we decided to have lunch there at least. As stated above, the food was very good, nothing fancy but good. Of course the beer was excellent.
