You know how a subtly good place just sneaks up on you and before you know it, you realise you go there just a bit much - but its good....and reliable.... and familiar.

The Long Room is pretty eclectic....its does a quiet business lunch, early dinner and then turns in to a party spot at night. There are big screens for sport when required, good food when you want it as tasting plates or full meals, outdoor and indoor, private function room, and adult late nights.... but it works.

The Venue - nice mix of indoor or courtyard, bar stool or seated table. Later it rocks (so Im told) and you can even catch a game. They have some customer parking but im not sharing because its limited.

The Food - I have to say its really good and hearty, the lunch menu is seriously well priced for good food ($10, $15, $20 plates). One of the $10 plates will fill you and the service and atmosphere makes it a better option than even subway. The pork belly rocks and the meatballs are fab. Its quiet enough (and not overcrowded) that I would recommend any business meeting and they have free wifi.

The Service - everyone is pretty friendly and nice. The senior staff keep an eye on things and If i had a complaint the junior staff forget to serve sometimes.

The Drinks - great selection, some special spirits, the wine is good but nothing compelling!

So I would say .... go here. Relax and enjoy. If you arent happy grab the maitre'd = he knows what he is doing and cares about a good experience.

Visited with a friend in August. Neat and chic modern deco, friendly waiting staff but food and beverage menu offer average range of choices, nothing special or interesting. Good place to drop in for after-walk drinks or a casual catch-up with a friend, but not the place if you are looking for a sensational outing.

In general, we were pretty disappointed with restaurants in Auckland, but this was a great find! We loved the sharing platter!

Had a voucher for this restaurant and having never been there previously did not know what to expect. We should not have worried as it was all excellent.

We went for lunch on a Saturday and were made very welcome by a Scottish lady who was very attentive and explanatory with the different foods available.

Excellent starters, excellent mains and desserts (I could not manage one but a certain other did!!) and once served was just left to our own devices to chat and enjoy the food. Some excellent soul/Motown music playing so made for an all round lovely experience.

The place was clean, well run, good food, didn't sample the drinks with a car to drive but tea was excellent from the various sorts that were available. No ideas what the drinks prices are but feel could be a tad expensive.

All round and excellent couple of hours in an easy relaxed atmosphere place that served good food and staff which were never in your face.

Will be returning sometime soon.

A fabulous spot. Really nice tapas and great tasting platters. Excellent selection of wines and attentive service. A great spot for a Sunday brunch too.
