“relax, drink, eat, great casual venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

This place has a combination of indoor and outdoor areas with canvas cover and heaters to keep bad weather at bay. Good tapas selection to accompany beer, wine or cocktails - a reasonable range of all. While casual, draws a good style of crowd. A venue to start, middle or finish an evening in Auckland - or stay all night!

“Nice food here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2012

Very buzzy and informal place with good food, nice fish in particular and i'd definitely go again if i ever end up in Auckland. Only thing was that we ate at night and given it was fish, it was a tad difficult in the low lighting to see what we were eating, not a place for the older generation really, more for media luvvies and kool cats really. Check it out, it's worth it.
