Cuisine: A La Carte, Share Plates

A place to meet, have fun and watch the world go by.

Named after its co-ordinates, The Junction Eatery prides itself on ‘food done right’. Ingredients are sourced from quality local producers; the beef is grass-fed and the eggs are free range. Organic produce is used wherever possible and the restaurant is serious about reducing its carbon footprint.

The guilt-free main menu includes braised lamb sliders, wagyu beef burgers and a delicious grilled veggie stack. A menu made for sharing offers a European charcuterie selection, fajitas, fries and more and is ideal shared with friends over drinks.

Laid out over two floors, the eatery has a modern yet warm feel with stylish furnishings and views of lush greenery and Rangitoto in the distance. Take it all in, sit back and relax at The Junction with a glass of beer or wine in hand.

What an amazing gem!
Staff were incredible, we arrived and had the best table reserved for us. Stunning views and open light atmosphere.
The menu was simple but has something for everyone.
The food cane out in a timely manner. So well presented and absolutely amazing. Could not fault a single thing.
Whether you want casual tapas and cocktails or just coffee and desert or the works with incredibly good quality food this place is a winner. I can’t believe as a Birkenhead local I haven’t been here before.
Back tomorrow for brunch and coffees

We were there during happy hour so we started with a few cocktails, they were great! Awesome flavours and presentation. Our group then shared a range of delicious tapas. Plenty of vegetarian options on the tapas menu. We enjoyed the roasted cauliflower and fried brie in particular which was just delicious with the honey and walnuts. Staff were friendly and attentive. We definitely intend on returning!

Unwittingly we arrived at Happy Hour! We enjoyed a delightful Te Mata chardonnay, followed by an outstanding, and perfectly cooked, Scotch fillet which was accompanied by delicious mushroom and truffle puree, broccolini and roast potatoes.
The staff were helpful, pleasant, professional and provided excellent service. Highly recommend a visit to this little restaurant and we shall return too!

What a hidden little treasure! We cannot fault the friendly wait staff at the Junction - so friendly, proficient and present but not overbearing! The food was just delicious and the view of Rangitoto Island in the cool retro setting just topped off a cool evening. Thanks so much!

Dined in Junction on Easter Friday. Service was great. Food was good, nothing special but mostly well cooked except for the fries and potatoes, they were really dry and tasteless. Drinks needed more flavour as well, the lemon lime and bitters needed more everything. However, I will go back for a coffee and cake or breakfast and sit outside and enjoy their lovely view.

Really good time at Junction. Great location and atmosphere with a nice indoor/outdoor flow upstairs. We ate from their Tapa's menu (Prawns, Calamari, Arancini and Breads) and couldn't fault the food at all. Good range and choice of drinks on the menu as well. Friendly service and very accommodating of our children (4 and 2) that were with us

Our third time at The Junction and we will be back again. Food is spot on - flavours, presentation and portion size. Service - as well - everything served just at the right time no mix ups with the drinks or food, professional , great all around service. Music just loud enough to have conversations without straining to hear others, lighting cosy and view beautiful. Top of our list at the moment.

Had a wonderful time here. The food was amazing, can definitely recommend the chicken breast. The restaurant was small but intimate. The service was great although the food took some noticeable time to come out although it didn’t really bother us. Beautiful night time views off the deck as well. Would definitely go back again soon.

We went just in time for the Happy Hour. Cocktails and beer were all great. Complimentary sparkling water was also a plus. We ordered Calamari and Pita bread which we enjoyed very much. Calamari was super crispy and three different dips for the Pita bread were fresh and delicious. I ordered Scotch fillet for main and it was okay. Little too oily for me - truffle mushroom puree and oily potatoes which I couldn't finish. Would definitely come back for tapas and drinks as they had a good selection. Bit of shame as upstairs were closed for a private function - that was where I wanted to dine in.
