We spent a great summer's afternoon at the Longroom on Ponsonby Rd, nestled out the back on the wide verandah in the shade.

The food is really a standard above what you would normally expect to find in a bar/bistro - the tapas are first rate - beautifully presented and very tasting (smoked salmon, mini chicken fajitas etc).

There's a good range of beers and cider on tap and the Longroom has great atmosphere. There's plenty of space if you're bring kids along (although our daughter slept in her pram so we didn't actually check the menu with our 'parents' eyes!)

I would certainly stop here again if we're ever back on Ponsonby Rd again.

Last time I ate lunch at Longroom the food was average and the setting was a bit tired (after being a popular ponsonby bar/night spot).. But went there today and the courtyard has been done up and it's looking really good. The sharing platter was delicious.. Especially the pork belly! And the mains were tasty too. The staff were friendly but a bit slim on the ground. I'll go back again..

Went there for a Saturday lunch. Very relaxing place to enjoy the sun. Attentive staff and great yummy food. We went for seafood platter and it didn't disappoint.

The front courtyard with open fire and overhead heaters is a great place for a beer and a meal. Tables nicely spread out and efficient service made the few hours I had here very enjoyable, especially as was entertaining customers. Set back off the road so is very quiet but still can see out make the atmosphere very nice. Inside it looks OK too but I think the courtyard is the drawcard here.
