We came here at 10.30pm and they only had a few things to eat. I tried the falafel with humus and they were delicious. We also tried the calamari which wasn't that good, and the fries were so and so. I asked for a ketchup and the taste was weird.

Nice atmosphere and attentive friendly staff. Amazing beer menu -always sightly sticky though! It's a nice place to pop in for a drink with friends and is usually busy. We popped in the other day for a meal- all ended up with fish and chips. A large plate of food although we all thought it was a little over priced for fish and chips. The meal was good -we all cleaned our plates!

Originally opened in 1886 as the Mt Eden Post Office this wonderful building was transformed into De Post Belgian Beer Café in 2000. The interior, fully imported from Belgium, privides an authentic European feeling across two main bar areas.

They have the largest beer menu in NZ with 116 of the most sought after Belgian beers. Some, such as Stella Artois, Hoegaarden, Leffe and Belle-Vue Kriek, are on tap. However, it’s the beer available listed in their fantastic ‘Magna Carta Fermenta’, ‘The Great Book of Beers’, that takes some beating and some funding. Yes, you’ll need lots of cash to buy a 330 ml bottle of Westvleteren12 ($101) or Westvleteren8 ($94), even if they are the best beers in the world!!

To accompany the beer, they serve authentic Belgian cuisine including their signature steaming mussel pots and the best spare rib platter I've tasted for a long time.

The only downside was that although the beer list is extensive, the night we went we had to keep selecting alternatives as they only had one bottle of each, and none of the ones we originally asked for!

This was our first time back to De Post in a very long time, the food was great, my husband loved the mussels with coconut cream and I really liked my Crepes, the meals were generous and good value, the atmosphere although noisy was fun and comfortable, we all had a great time. The service was great and we will be back!
