Discover straight-up fine dining without the fuss and nonsense. Moxie focuses on a return to three-course dining and great service without pretence.

The fries are crispy and fluffy, the sliders are stuffed with sticky pulled pork and the doughnuts are filled with blue cheese (hint: try them, they're great!) There's also nachos with octopus ragout, Texas hot links and must-try truffled mac n' cheese.

Moxie offers plenty to appease all taste buds, with a range of meat, chicken and fish dishes available.

A funky pastel pink décor theme provides the backdrop and the casual yet elegant atmosphere is just right for a quiet drink and meal with dear friends. Moxie boasts views towards Rangitoto, ambient music and a delectable mix of cocktails.

This is great food and drink, designed to be enjoyed with great company.

We arrived a bit early and they weren't open but they welcomed us in out of the cold to wait until they were ready to open. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, they made great recommendations from the menu and were very patient with us as we found it difficult to make up our mind with so many unique dishes to choose from. Moxie has an elegant relaxing atmosphere, we felt very welcome and comfortable. Every dish we ordered was delicious in its own way with unexpected but delightful textures and flavours cooked to perfection.

The food and service were superb. The milk bun is their signature dish and one is just not enough. The market fish was cooked to perfection and the beef ribs were so tender and full of flavour. The chocolate fondant is the best in Auckland and worth travelling miles for.
Special thanks to the bartender who made me 2 delicious mocktails when they were not on the drink list. Should definitely put them on the drink list.
Highly recommended anyone who enjoys excellent food and services. You won't be disappointed at Moxie.

One of the best dining experiences in Auckland!
The atmosphere is warm and welcoming as well as beautiful and well thought out, comfortable seats and sultry lighting.
The music was just the right level to enjoy without having to use hand signals.
The staff are fantastic, with all four we interacted with being professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the menu.
They are genuinely passionate about the food and I love that they have the option of non alcoholic cocktails in the same flavors as the alcoholic ones, as well as offering to create one to our individual tastes.
And the food.... oh God the food!!
We tried 6 separate dishes and each one was cooked to perfection and beautifully plated.
The house recommends the moxie milk buns and they deliver, with the aromas coming out of the kitchen teasing you the whole way.
Personal recommendation of the rabbit pappardelle as the velvety texture and smooth taste has become my new favorite dish.
All in all even the full prices is affordable and worth any amount for that quality of dining.
Moxie makes incredible dining available to everyone and it was a pleasure to experience.
Thank you team.

It was our first time dining at Moxie and we enjoyed it very much!
The atmosphere is lovely and relaxed and the service was very attentive and professional. We were even given a complimentary starter for us to sample a bit more of their food, it was the cured salmon carpaccio, and we're very glad we could taste it because it was delicious. Their Milky bun with sticky pork was a very yummy introduction. Good choice of wines by the glass too. It was overall a very nice evening.

Moxie did not disappoint, from the ambience to the service and the beautiful food. Definitely made to share, we had the Roast Sweet Potato, Korean Fried Chicken, Moroccan Braised Lamb and Eye Fillet. Unfortunately no room for what looked liked gorgeous desserts, next time as we'll be back.

Loved everything about Moxie: the friendly service; the beautiful décor; not to mention the food. Our meals were outstanding; we can't fault anything which is quite rare these days. My husbands steak was cooked exactly as he likes it and my hapuka was delectable. The accompanying veg and flavourings with each meal were superb! Totally recommend the pulled pork sliders (milk buns) to start. Only regret is we didn't have time for dessert as had a movie to catch. Next time!!

Last minute booking on Friday night and what a find! This is a hidden gem near the end of Hinemoa St with a small but superbly crafted menu set in a beautifully renovated villa with a casual vibe. The service was wonderful and the food outstanding, some of the best we have ever eaten. The generous starters meant little room for dessert (but can't complain about that!) so we persevered and can recommend the fried apple pie with white chocolate ice cream. They make a mean cocktail as well. Will certainly be back to work through the rest of the menu. Be rude not to.

Had a great night. Food selection interesting and varied -hard to make a choice, will need to go again to try other items. Fantastic date and pistachio entree, and team very happy with beef to share -oxtail and mash delicious. Thought the 90 minutes would mean we'd have to hurry -wasn't a problem. Definitely try this one.

Deliciously varied menu to choose from. We shared the beef. Cooked to melt-in-the-mouth perfection. Combination of potatoes with the oxtail gravy was rich and tasty. Onion rings crunchy and light. Very happy to have experienced Moxies!

We had never been to Moxie before but chose this restaurant for a special family occasion. The whole experience was fantastic and certainly one we’ll be repeating. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and feels spacious and light. The service was excellent and the staff were very friendly. We were even asked by the chef, who we had noticed picking fresh mint from the garden for our desserts earlier, how everything was before we left. Finally the food was phenomenal. Every person in our party left immeasurably satisfied with their meals. Highly recommend Moxie for an occasion.
