Right on Auckland's waterfront in Wynyard Quarter, The Conservatory Bar & Restaurant is a peaceful haven that takes its interior cues from its name - it's festooned with lush, living gardens so stepping inside you are transported to a green oasis. Well-known for both an extensive cocktail list and their signature 18-inch pizzas, this Auckland favourite truly stacks up to its tagline, "it's about living".

And no matter what time of day, be it business or pleasure, The Conservatory is always pumping for brunch, lunch, snacks or platters. Kick back, relax and enjoy the laidback atmosphere and environment, where sitting outside is just as comfortable as sitting inside.

Great atmosphere, location is in a perfect spot and the food is amazing

Love coming here for drinks, great atmosphere. I like the pizza too they’re huge. Great for after work drinks in the sun. The wait staff are nothing special but they’re all good.

nice and relaxing - a great night out with my partners work

When the sun is beaming, this is THE place to go in Auckland for a cocktail by the water... and an (18-inch!) pizza... and a burger. In fact, the list could go on because like its ingenious interior - which is paradise for a plant-lover like me - there is attention to detail in everything that's served up at The Conservatory. But I digress because what this is really all about is the cocktails. On a scorching day, there's no better way to treat yourself than pulling up a pew at Tricky Hartley's establishment and imbibing in a few glasses of the good stuff. I'm a big tequila fan so am particularly partial to The Conservatory's magic margaritas and, when the temperature goes above 30 degrees, you really can't beat a Pimms Cup with fresh strawberries, cucumber, orange and mint. The kitchen also does incredible platters so it's one to file away for a free Friday afternoon with friends that will undoubtedly extend into a long and adventurous evening. Who's thirsty?

The conservatory was a great place for great food along with a fantastic casual atmosphere and friendly staff. The delicious food was amplified by the comfortable seating arrangements, in particular those cool swing chairs. An all together fantastic experience!

Amazing atmosphere, great service provided by their friendly staff and delicious food! :)

The location alone (Wynyard Quarter) makes this a great pick for brunch. There’s no better way to spend a lazy morning/afternoon than parked in the sun along the waterfront watching boats and pedestrians pass by. The brunch menu is absolutely delicious - try the banana bread!

Really cool place to chill on a Sunday

Great bar for an intimate drink during the week or weekend. Great outdoor seating area

Had a great lunch here, awesome menu with great flavours. Service was friendly and fast. Food was delicious. Wasn't too much seating inside but there was only 2 of us so it was ok.
