Ponsonby Road Bistro

Menu from Ponsonby Road Bistro website

We know "Ponsonby Road Bistro" is a favourite of The Wine List customers as it was one of our most tipped restaurants during our COVID years "Tip a Restaurant" campaign.

Reliably serving sophisticated bistro food for the last ten years, these guys are "safe hands" for your night out.  This restaurant is on my family’s’ list of "great steak" places.  A good wine at the bar with an entrée will sort out any weeknight in need of a lift (let them know if you’re off to a film down the road or a gig in town next). 

With a small menu that changes regularly and a strong wine list, the bistro's style is consistent and will keep you coming back.

Little Sicily at The Trident Taverna Onehunga

Without a doubt a must-visit addition to the Auckland food scene. 

From auspicious and trendy beginnings in a food truck behind music studios in Penrose, Little Sicily now has a permanent home in a main road Onehunga pub.

The address is 190 Onehunga Mall (in the old sense of the word, i.e main street) Parking is around the back, but we found plenty of parking on the street on a Sunday.

Hotel Ponsonby

There is great joy in stumbling into a bar full of young trendy things. I love seeing them in their natural habitat. The first room at Hotel Ponsoby is reminiscent of the local pub, stand-up bar leaners and groups of people catching up. Stylish young things chatting and small-batch brewed beers, many of these on tap. But don't be put off!
Omni Restaurant, Auckland

This is my new favourite casual restaurant.  Easy, relaxed and delicious without the loud music. The perfect place to catch up with great friends.
