“Lovely place for wine and cheese”
Review of Winehot - CLOSED

Winehot
Description: Small French restaurant, run by genuine french people. Menu is small but very French orientated. Entree we ate consisted of duck pate (very flavoursome) blue cheese croquettes, and mains of duck and steak. We also ate a dozen oysters for entree, which were stunning, but pricey. The atmosphere was very french and the French waiter gave wonderful service. There is an outdoor courtyard, great or humid evenings, though at times we could smell smoke from smokers wafting inside! For anyone wanting authentic French cuisine, we could definitely recommend this restaurant.

Reviewed March 18, 2014

Love the cozy atmosphere, the cheese platters and terrine. Great wine list. I love the little outdoor area at the back.

“French flair and Craft beer!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

My partner loves wine and I love beer so if this sounds familiar you can't go past Winehot especially if it's on the drive/train ride home. The owner Julian will be more than happy to suggest a great drop over a chat about your day, we need more of this in Auckland.

“Excellent”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

I was in this bar just after two months of traveling in Australia, and just before 3 months of traveling and working in NZ. It was so good to find the taste of france (I am from Paris) after this time, with a real plate of very good cheese, a baguette as in the country and a glass of wine. I liked the atmosphere and the staff. Thank you so much
