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.

This is our new favourite local restaurant. The food was delicious (recommend the wings night) and the service was fantastic. 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!!

We had a great dinner at Moxie. Mac n Cheese is one of the best out there, and the Lamb was delicious too (enjoyed by our 8 month old too ;) ). Warm and friendly wait staff, and lovely setting in the old villa.

Thank you Moxie for a really wonderful dinner. Such a rare gem in Birkenhead. We enjoyed the entree sliders so much, it set our expectations high for the mains and dessert. And Moxie didn't disappoint! The service was fantastic and we felt well looked after. One of the best restaurant experience we've had in a while. Thank you Moxie! We're already planning our next visit to you.

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.

The staff were very friendly and our meals were served quickly (helpful since we had kids with us). My husband and I weren't in the mood for a heavy main so ended up sharing starters. We tried most of the starters between us and they were all delicious!

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.

Lovely looking restaurant, great service. The lamb shank was well cooked,however the portion was quite small. The chicken was nice but Korean style pancakes were strange as the pancakes were so lumpy. The steak was not good. It was rare,which we don't mind so much, but it would have been nice to be asked and it just wasn't nice. It had an unpleasant taste, and was very watery. The homemade lemon and lime drinks were a highlight. So we will be back for Friday drinks.

I came into Moxie not knowing what to really expect. I've been hearing about how great the food is but I needed to see and taste it for myself.

Aaand the reviews were right! I left Moxie feeling very satisfied. The food was presented so intricately and creatively. I have no idea how they have come up with these dishes but they were absolutely delicious. It was something totally different from the usual meals I'd eat whenever I'd try other restaurants. Not to mention, the service was excellent as well!

I'd definitely go back for a second round in the future.

We always love coming to Moxie when we have visitors from out of town - so lucky to have just a fantastic restaurant in our suburb! The staff are always so welcoming and the food is wonderful. We enjoyed watching the chefs pick herbs from the garden for our meals.

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!

My mate and I had a wonderful time and most everything we ate we loved. For example, we weren’t a huge fan of the prawn salad and the mango dessert was overpowered by the ginger nuts. But we loved the sticky pork burgers and still dreaming of them. Duck was cooked perfectly. And loved the sage pineapple cake. Only wish we knew that Valentine’s Day had a set menu as we wanted to try the tapas. But definitely going back!

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.

Top Service and Wow Food

Another great night out on First Table, on a hot early Summer evening. We waited in the bar had a quick drink until our other two arrived to make up our party. Right from the initial greeting we knew that the service would be great. We had a shared entree between four of the tempura battered tuna, which is not usually my choice of fish but it was so delicious. The rack of lamb, the chicken breast and the hapuka were all excellent,and each of us very happy with our choices. As we were dining at such a discount we decided we could splash out on a lovely wine and ordered a fabulous Amisfield Pinot Noir. Although fully satisfied we dived into a hot chocolate fondant dessert with four spoons and all felt happy we had. On the evening we were dining there was a company Christmas party in the courtyard but a perfect spot in the future to enjoy an early meal with the last of the sunshine.
