Had a relaxing drink and fabulous marinated olives before our walk along Ponsonby Rd to our restaurant. We loved the atmosphere and service so much we would have stayed to dine if we weren't meeting friends. Great little courtyard outside too. So many great beers to choose from, and the cider was the best I had in Auckland.

Popped in last night with a group of friends, hoping to try their vast array of beers, good food and good conversation. Instead, walked into some kind of loud, brash nightclub that is struggling to find its identity. I have to admit, the choice of beers is fantastic, the food coming out of the kitchen looked impressive, but all this is ruined by the noise level of the music!! The whole building shakes! Are you a bar, a restaurant or a club? Or just death?

Thanks very much for your review, we are so pleased that you were impressed by our beer list and liked the look of the food coming out of our kitchen.

The night you came in was our opening night - we had opened our doors for the very first time at 7pm so we were in celebratory mode hence the reason the bar was loud and busy. This is not the bar's usual noise level - you just caught us in party mode!

If you have the opportunity we hope you will be able to return for a more relaxing experience and to try out our menu.
