I’ve been here many times before for drinks and dinner. It was a Wednesday night and needed a quick fix of food after a long day at work.

I was surprised by the quality of the food. Previously it was just pub food to me – nothing special or expected any great service.

I received both that night. My partner ordered a Pizza – crispy base, with just the right amount of topping and sauce that you know is done properly. My steak was done just the way I wanted – medium rare. Pepper corn sauce could be a little hotter (it was warm). Best part of the dish was the fries. Crispy and non greasy.

Only thing I didn’t like was my wine – tasted like it had been opened for a while. (more than 2 days)

Friendly and prompt service.

Great tasting new autumn/winter menu. Since it was four of us we got to taste each others dishes and they all were excellent. Interesting dessert dish, fried milk, but it was really yummy. When we go back, I am definitely ordering this dessert again. Nice friendly staff, service was prompt, and the front staff entertained our almost 3 year old as well. Good work by both the front staff as well as the kitchen staff.

Very pleasent surprise from a bar.
Warm friendly and inviting with a comfortable atmosphere.
Settled at a table promptly by wait staff. Ordered entrees and some drinks which arrived shortly after, a lovely well cooked and presented meal.

Came here for drinks and ended up being so intrigued by the menu that we ordered food too. The potato cubes came with pesto and another sauce, both of which seemed a strange flavour combination with fried potato.

However, the highlight came with dessert. The fried milk was delicious – crunchy cinnamon coating on the outside and a silky, custard-like filling with a gentle milk flavour. The cocktails were tasty and the service was excellent. Looking forward to coming here again.

I have been here for a casual drink many times and always enjoyed it, though I had never had a meal here. Last Saturday my friend had her birthday lunch here and I have to say I was impressed. The food was great! Nothing too fancy or over the top, just casual and tasty. I had the quinoa salad which was huge and yummy. It was jam packed full of vegetables which had been cooked perfectly. Some of my dining companions had pizzas which looked equally fantastic. The desserts were also good. Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff and good food.

Great staff & the most delicious pork belly, it really is so good we cant stop thinking about it.
The tapas menu is good & I like the layout with a great outdoor area.
This is now going to be our local & we will slowly try the rest of the menu. Yay.

A great spot, perfect for a summer drink and “gastro-pub” bite. Excellent atmosphere.

Nice decor and friendly staff, food is nice too. Only complaint would be that the music was crazy loud so that it’s very hard to hear each other without straining but that’s not a biggie. Would definitely go again

Loved the bar and food however, there was no record of my booking. Luckily there was room for us and we were seated quickly. We were served by a waitress named Pippa who was helpful and efficient.

Without a doubt the friendliest staff you will find in an Auckland Bar. Nothing is too much of a hassle for these folk. One tiny little annoyance is the night menu (after the chefs have departed) is rather limited e.g no gravy with the chips and gravy, and no garlic pizza only margherita. Would still happily come back here at any stage.

My wife & I were at Neighbourhood over the Easter weekend for a lovely dinner out , pizza & pudding went down a treat & just to make it all the sweeter there was no public holiday surcharge .

One of the best bars in Auckland. Last weekend I went with a group of Friends to Neighbourhood on Sunday afternoon, Its a great area for lounging and relaxing. They also had a live singer musician guy, he was awesome! I am sure i will be back next Sunday.
