“A foodies delight.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Our first evening in Auckland we were soothed by the quiet and good service. Helpful service coupled with excellent food. The menu was creative like the neighborhood of Ponsonby itself. The wine list was excellent as well.

“Expected more”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We had heard the pizzas were amazing and thought we'd order a take away pizza to try. We ordered the lamb pizza and while it it was pricey we don't mind paying for quality. We were disappointed to find the portion size small and over all taste a bit flat but must say the lamb itself was delicious. We probably wouldn't go back.

“Great family dinner with friendly helpful service and lovely meals”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

We were booked in for an early (5pm) dinner for a group of 10 family members including four kids. Parking was no problem in the side street outside. From the time we arrived the service was friendly and helpful, checking when we needed to leave to make the show we were booked in for, and making sure the kids were served drinks and meals first. The menu was good with plenty of variety -- we ordered salt & pepper squid entrees, and for mains we had a couple of pizzas, a duck (very nice) and steak (perfectly cooked) with a selection of sides. Dessert selection was also very nice. Good choice of drinks including an extensive wine list. The kids were happy with their meals and so were we. Splitting the one bill was no problem either. We'd certainly come back again.

“Good service, great food”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We have been here lots of times, but more recently end of August. We have always had fantastic service from the staff. The food has always been really good, there is a great menu with lots of choice and well priced. There is also a great choice of drinks, wines, beers etc. GPK is open for lunch and breakfast and their menus also look yummy. The atmosphere is relaxing, can get loud when the restaurant is full - but you can always request a quiet area to sit in.

“Good place amongst many”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Ponsonby Road is a popular eatery precinct in Auckland with lots of choice and generally, good quality places to eat, offering a wide range of options. Went there with friends for brunch on a wet weekend day which proved to be busy. Probably a booking would make sense although we were lucky and they found space for 9 friends.

I opted for a set menu of $24 so with a glass of wine and coffee, it came to little over $30.

The food was uniformly good, along with service. Outside on a cool and wet day, the external heating worked well. Inside was busy but probably, noisier than being outside.
