Professional service and friendly. Great place well situated looking out to harbour. Staff helpful and friendly, food very tasty and well presented and finer details of putting a little Christmas touch to the desserts.

Soul Bar and Bistro put the experience back into dining, amazing food, busy yet comfortable ambience, friendly staff that knew their product knowledge, very accomodating with large groups as well as smaller more intimate dining. Always go back whenever we're in Auckland!

I love this restaurant and when entertaining overseas visitors for dinner would always reserve a table here, especially if you can get to eat outside, the view and people watching is just great. As for the food, the fish, calamari and choc desert are the best in the City.

My only complaint would be if you do take clients there for dinner it can get very noisy, especially if they seat you inside it can be hard to have a conversation, the second poor thing is unfortunately you cannot reserve a table outside where the atmosphere is excellent, its not so noiey and clients love it. My suggestion is book dinner early, before 6.30 to almost ensure you sit outside.

Lovely food either a full menu or little sharing plates and very popular with the locals after work - was buzzing when we were there. Seats in the sun and great wine and service!

Saturday night and Viaduct Harbour in Auckland is pumping but Soul Bar found a great table for 5 including our 91 year old mother/mother-in-law. The protected balcony looks out to the harbour as the sun pokes between the clouds till it sets. The service excellent with the waitperson finding the right balance between friendly, courteous, knowledgable and attentive. Water was quickly on the table and the sommelier gave excellent advice about a good local wine, without being pretentious.

The hot seafood platter was fresh and generous. Prawns, fish, calamari all gently fried and very tasty. Accompanying fries crisp and hot. The duck received praise too. Oh, the pre-meal bread was warm and excellent.

These visitors from Sydney enjoyed it immensely.
