Great service by ‘Lena’. An awesome location with the best views of the harbour. Food wasn’t amazing but portion size good. Steak was cooked well. Worth a visit and we would visit again using 1st table.

We dropped in as they were closing as a work colleague knows the owner. No longer were they closing but welcoming us and making sure we had the most amazing night. A great experience of service and hospitality.

We stumbled across here whilst having a walk after lunch. Have $5 beer and house wine special. Couldn’t get a better view and the staff weren’t pushy at all. Didn’t eat but the menu looked really good too, especially if you’re into your exotic meats

Me and my partner stumbled across this place while walking around the port. We received a warm welcome from the friendly staff and the food was absolutely amazing. Would highly recommend. If we ever come back to Auckland we will 100% be back.

We stopped at the Buffalo Bar and Grill and asked if they did take aways. They do. Their chicken wings were great with a little bit of heat,

Enjoyed a few drinks on a Saturday afternoon watching the Volvo Round the World Yacht race vessels race in the harbour. Quiet location at the viaduct basin bottom of Queen St Auckland city. Good service and the food looked good too.
