Tonight I had some food with a friend at Conch in Ponsonby Road.
The place is nice and cozy and the atmosphere is great. The menu is short but food is very authentic, a little fusion between traditional South American and comfort food.
I tried the beef and pork arepas and the meat and sauces were delicious. I must say as well I wasn't a huge fan of the dough anyway, it's made "gluten free" and that makes the arepas not as consistent and good as they usually are. Anyway, the arepas were nice and I would have them again.
My friend ordered the ceviche and he loved it, it seemed to have been soaking in lemon marinade for a while, but the fish meat looked good.
Conch is definitely recommended to go with your partner or friends before going out for drinks in Ponsonby Rd.

Read about this spot as had not heard of it previously- it is a little hidden opposite Ponsonby Central.
I tried the beef ribs which were their specialty. Slightly pricy considering there is really only meat & mash, but very delicious & filling.

One of my favourite places for a lazy weekend breakfast especially in the summer , nice laid back atmosphere with a lovely garden setting out the back! good music too to help wash down the food! and the organic feel to it all just adds to the experience! awesome coffees and lovely eggs bene

Came here with a friend who wanted to check it out. Interesting interior design. The outside booths are cool really liked them.
We only stayed for one drink because it was a tad boring and the bar man gave off bad vibes... Found him a bit unhappy.
I don't think I will visit here again.
Who knows... I really liked the place itself.

This place looks very cute. I never realised it was a cafe from the outside. I always thought it was a magazine shop or something similar.. I thought the inside is a little dark for my liking. But it sets that mood. It's very quiet and not too busy.. So I felt like I couldn't talk very loud. But it's nice to come to relax and unwind, they have free wifi too. Food is good, coffee is good. Service is good too, staff are very friendly.

I've found it quite challenging to rate this place. It sits at either a 3 or 3.5 but definitely no more. Firstly, the service here is fantastic. The waitress (and I suspect manager) who served us was friendly and charismatic. My dad and I ordered a cocktail each, which took quite a long time to arrive. My dad's mojito was delicious, my one was nice but not sure why watermelon seeds were left in there?? A conscious effort was made to add additional seeds by the looks of it. Bizarre. The food here is average. I enjoyed the Portuguese chicken salad but the croutons were hard as rocks and the rest of the salad ingredients weren't very inspiring. The chicken had great flavor.I held back on dessert but dad had the apple tart. The apple component was delicious but the tart was extremely hard. The décor is hippy-style. I liked the little outdoor booths but the place is pretty run down and a bit messy. You can see all their cleaning products in little areas and it's just not a good look! I won't be back here in a rush.

Conch is a very cool eatery in Ponsonby, who would've thought this place existed. When you look at the front it just looks like a bar then you walk through to the back and they have outdoor covered booths, a small kitchen and woodfire oven.
The food is awesome too. Pizzas are good and the short ribs are amazing.
Friendly chilled out service
Great place to catch up with friends

It was a pleasant surprised finding this place. I wasnt aware this was a restaurant, decided to try it and was happy!
Quite cheap. Good food. Mexican style. You an sit out back. Very rustic.
Tried the ceviche, tacos and apple tart. Will come back for sure!

Delicious food and friendly service. We all enjoyed our food, sharing Portuguese chicken, pork tacos, beef rib, rosemary potatoes and a very good creme Catalan (which I refused to share it was too good). Will be back!!

Wow!!! This restaurant is by far the best one I've been to in months!!!
To be honest, I've discovered that place one evening because my friend and I were just looking for a nice place to seat and have one last glass of wine and a desert. The service was perfect and oh my god! Their deserts are amazing!
So, I went back two weeks later to try their food and a bit more wine and I still remember the flavors and I want more! So we tried a few dishes. We shared every dishes and it was a good way to discovers that they are the master of all their food! I wasn't disappointed by any dish!
Ill go there again and again and will recommand it to everyone!
