8. Tom Tom Bar and Eatery

In celebration of Auckland Restaurant Month, I will be posting 31 quick-fire reviews on 31 restaurants and cafes in the Auckland CBD and city fringe.



The atmosphere is…
Quiet on the night we visited but the space has many areas and is well set up for groups. A bit flasher than your average pub.

Come here for…
A range of all purpose pub meals to please most picky eaters. Great for groups.

The most interesting thing on the menu…

  • Crispy eggplant with massaman dip

Unexpectedly wonderful…

  • Chocolate velvet molten lava pudding
  • The unisex toilets with area for stylist on Fridays. Yes, ladies, get your hair done by a professional with a glass of Moet in hand.

I would come back to try…
Their weekly specials such as the $20 paella and a beer on Wednesday nights.

Catering to…
Lactose free, gluten free and vegetarian menu items clearly marked.

Expect to spend…
$20-30 per person

The service is…

Avoid if…
You can’t eat in front of a TV.

Auckland Restaurant Month special:

Dinner includes house smoked fish and organic eye fillet with fungi and beetroot, lunch includes a choice of pork belly with house made BBQ sauce or seared Angus beef with radish.
