Cuisine: Bar Food, Gastro Pub Food, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

This big, beautiful, comfortable bar is exactly the kind of establishment you want just around the corner from your place. An airy, high-ceilinged space with plenty of cosy seating, it’s stocked to the gunnels with good things to eat, drink and look at.

A hundred and thirty years ago it was the HQ of the Northern Steamship Company of New Zealand. Today, beautifully restored, it’s one of Auckland’s finest heritage buildings.

With plenty of lovingly preserved historic detail and an engagingly eccentric contemporary fit out, this is a bar to explore as well as a place to meet, eat, hang out and enjoy a drink.

We ordered the creamy lemon chicken. There was too much sauce that wasn't nice. It had a very strong sour bitter lemon taste that wasn't enjoyable to eat. It had no other flavours. The other 2 meals were steak that was cooked to our liking and we enjoyed them

The staff here were fantastic and I should have taken their advice.
We ordered the main platter and our lovely waitress said that would be enough for 2 , but no I knew better and ordered a Steak as well. The Platter was outstanding and we had no show of getting through all of it let alone the steak I ordered which was delicious in itself. In all an outstanding meal and night out

What an awesome place! Fantastic food and service and was so warm and inviting on a terribly cold and wet winters night. The beer matching was a great added touch. Will absolutely be back for another delicious fried chicken and haloumi burger.

The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the service was excellent. The place was very bust so we were lucky we ordered through FirstTable. The food was great, we got the sharing platter and the Arancini Balls were so good! Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs a quick eat before a big night out!

Venue is cool and the food was good, staff were friendly. Did, however, find that the music was really loud, which made dinner conversation a bit hard. But were there right in time for the after work crowd so we understood why it would be loud :)

My partner and I had a fantastic experience at Northern Steamship. We had a truly lovely waiter who was calm and not pushy when it came to us ordering our food, whilst still maintaining the perfect amount of care for his customers.

We decided to order a cacophony of side dishes as they sounded so good! We ordered the mozzarella balls with a honey glaze, mushroom arancini balls, polenta chips, garlic bread and onion rings. All of it was fantastic. The mozzarella balls and polenta chips were particular hits. The honey glaze was genius and the polenta chips had a crispness that is hard to deliver from experience making polenta chips! Seasoning was also excellent. We washed it all down with the super smooth Wither Hills Pinot Noir which they have on tap.

Fantastic experience and will definitely be coming back. Couldn’t recommend highly enough!

Upon arrival the bar staff had reserved our table, they were very attentive and helpful all evening. I went in thinking they would want to rush us in and out since we had our first table discount but they were happy to let us take as long as we want, and relax with a beer before ordering food. A great selection of drinks and the food was delicious, we chose two of the burgers, fish and chips, and buttermilk fried chicken, all a very generous size. Overall a really pleasant Monday evening out.

We found a lively buzzing place when we arrived at the Northern Steamship Co, with a dj playing. Service was quick and friendly, and our requests for allergy friendly substitutes weren't a problem. Kids were kept busy with colouring sheets on the menus. Our meals were generously sized, and the four of us went home happy.
