Waiting to check into our Airbnb, we more or less fell into Brew On Quay. Literally the first customers in the restaurant, there were some humor-filled problems with the menu for the day, but we appreciated the waitstaff's attempts to keep us abreast of the ongoing changes with the specials! I ordered the delicious ceviche, but my friends ordered the... More

This is a great bar situated directly opposite the harbour. There is a good range of beers and ciders on tap and there is a good atmosphere and free wifi.

Having been advised to go here by a mad italian at a bar in town we decided to stroll up the quay. So glad we did. The guys and girls who work there are mostly brits and very friendly and enthusiastic! Truly a beer lovers paradise with some really unusual draught beers as well as a huge choice of bottles....

Found this pub restaurant through a discount voucher in the visitors guide. Finding the restaurant was another matter as the Quay is rather long and it rained. It is at the side where the cruise ships dock and not a busy harbour/marina side. We had a nice chicke salad with cider. Very friendly service and nice to chat with other... More

At Brew on Quay you will find a lovely and warm atmosphere, good music, good food, excellent service, international staff and over 102 different beers on tap and from the fridge. Highly recommend the bar upstairs!

They've done a really good job with the building, even though it certainly could be cleaner. The selection of beers was pretty poor however There were some bottles, but for a place that prides itself on a good beer selection, it was sadly lacking. We'd walked up this way for the specific purpose of settling in at Brew on Quay... More

'Brew On Quai' is located near the hotel where we spend the first few days in New Zealand. We were happy to find it in the evening after flying in, when we did not feel like walking long, we were hungry and thirsty. The place looks like an European brewery or British pub - an environment we liked. We ordered... More

Although the building is interesting and the location is good. The quality of the food is average and the beer is expensive. Won't be in a hurry to return but it was ok. Nice ambience to the building as it was obviously was converted from something else. Toilets were dirty as well which is always a turnoff.

Popped into the Brew on Quay this lunchtime with my wife, Ann, for a meal and a beer. I had bangers and mash and Ann had chicken breast stuffed with almond and wrapped in bacon served with gnocchi in a cheese sauce. Both were good, especially the chicken. We also both had drinks of real ale and these were very... More

Focusing on great atmosphere, ambiance, fine food and the best brews from around New Zealand and the world. With the decor of Brew on Quay changing from room to room, Brew attracts every type of beer consumer, not just the typical kiwi bloke, but also the business man, the lunching lady, the party princess and the group of friends out for a fun night.

Brews point of difference also comes in the form of its roof top bar. The rooftop bar offers an ambiance all of its own. To sit on the roof and have a brew with friends under the night stars can either be romantic or just plain fun.

We promise you something different, fun, and full of Brew.
