Dined here on a Thursday evening. Place was buzzing. Very nice atmosphere. Calamari starter cooked perfectly. Pork belly main was also delicious. Loved the Spy Valley sauvignon blanc. Wine list intelligently selected with some nice reds that I'd like to go back and try. Staff curteous, fun and efficient. Nice food served in a nice atmosphere.

The Monach is the grand old lady of restaurants in Pukekohe, guarding the Queen Street corner for many years.
The food remains consistent and filling, the wine excellent.
Our last visit was slightly disappointing due to the slow service (over a half hour for lunch). The staff was attentive, and it was not crowded.
Prices were slightly higher than expected for lunch, but the food was excellent.
A great place to bring business guests, if the company is paying the bill, and you need time to discuss business.

Great service, good staff, good menu, excellent food. Good ambience, quiet but plenty of activity. Nothing seemed to be any bother to the staff. Good value for money.

A well-established eatery with a great atmosphere and good wholesome food. Got there after a gruelling 30 hr flight from the UK and had one of their amazing breakfasts (bacon, egg, hash browns, mushroom, bread and home-made baked beans in a fantastic tomato sauce, washed down with a cool beer. Staff are courteous and efficient. Their dinner menu is also worth a sample but you need to book as it is a popular place with the locals.

We have eaten here a few times now, when visiting Auckland. It is consistently wonderful. We had a new menu to choose from, and the food was delicious. Definitely recommend - atmosphere is very appealing as well.
