You can’t beat this bar, restaurant and live music venue for finger-lickin’ meats, strong liquor and swinging Southern soul.

In the midst of vibrant Auckland Central, a sprawl of heritage buildings set against breathtaking views of the sea, its raw wood and metal finish, easygoing staff and fabulous roster of jazz musicians will whisk you away to the heart of Louisiana.

Roll up your sleeves and get stuck into a menu of big plates, comfort classics and decadent sides. Think loaded waffle burgers and pulled pork po boys, as well as stunning seafood dishes. If you’re hungry as hell, tackle one of the legendary headliner dishes… if you dare!

Gluten-free diners and vegetarians are well catered for, while the drinks selection will make any evening feel like a party.

Pimp your salted caramel milkshake with a shot of spiced rum, go full on cowboy with an enormous selection of American whiskies or opt for one the outrageously good cocktails, including New Orleans classics Ramos Gin Fizz and Creole Red Snapper.

The atmosphere was great and vibrant! The food was tantalizing and the highlight was the Gumbo which was full of flavor with southern touch. The Waffle Stack was too sweet for our liking. But overall it was an awesome experience.

My friends and I had a great time at Orleans. Heard so much about it we were keen to try it for ourselves. The level of service was awesome- recommendations were made based on our preferences. It made us feel valued. Food was delicious and loved the cocktails too. Great vibe, we'll definitely be going back for more!

A unique place hidden down the alleyway.
We had the chicken waffles and jalapeño poppers which were both super yum!
The service was very attentive (maybe slightly OTT) but none the less was good.

From beginning to end dining at Orleans was a fantastic experience. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming, showing a great professionalism and knowledge of wines and food menu. In particular Beth was very accommodating and we enjoyed her service. Ribs portion was very satisfying and nicely made, enjoyed it so much. Furthermore, the Mac n’ Cheese burger was something we hadn’t tried before but we will order it every single time we go back! The setting, decoration and atmosphere make for a very unique experience so very happy with our choice

Just the two of us, having a pre-concert dinner. Food was great, in a Southern style. Lots of interesting items on the menu. Orleans fried chicken waffle had great flavour. Calamari was lighter but also nice. The stand out was the jalapeno poppers, just brilliant. Decor was dark on dark with jazz background music, very French quarter. Definitely go again.

Been to Orleans a couple of times and was very lucky in finding a slot available on First Table.

Great comfort food and you can never go wrong with the classic chicken waffles....was telling my friends that 80% of photos on Zomato are of the chicken waffles.

The gumbo was delicious and full of flavour!!

I came here to catch up with an ex colleague in cbd.
The vibe and atmosphere of the place was fantastic. Not to mention the waiter and waitresses were all very friendly and welcoming. Because it was our first time, they took their time to explain what people usually get and a general +brief explanation of the menu.
We had the waffle stack + ribs. Both items live up to their popularity in terms of taste!

Overall we were very happy with our food + service and will definitely come back

We went to Orleans for the first time and had heard all about the chicken and waffles - it did not disappoint, it was Amazing! The pork belly was also a win and the brownie stack was an excellent way to finish the meal. Would highly recommend all these dishes! And the staff were lovely. We did get the Calamari as well which we thought wasn't quite up to the standard of the other dishes but overall a really good meal. Will definitely be back for more chicken and waffles!

Orleans was perfect spot for our Monday night, preshow meal. The staff were friendly and attentive.The food was excellent (the famous chicken waffles were on fine form), and the laid back atmosphere - combined with a couple of drinks - gave everything an extra, magical glow. I will most definitely be returning for a second helping - and maybe a third.

Absolutely loved ORLEANS , from the friendly welcoming at the door to paying the bill at the end we could not fault anything. ALL the staff were so friendly and attentive, having just returned from New Orleans we were keen to see how authentic it was, and it truly was just like being back there, the BEIGNETS a must to finish with...Thank you to all...

Great place with yummy food and cocktails. The service was great but they forgot our curly fries and I had to ask a couple of times so had to rate them a star less for service. Will definitely be back.

The food here is so good that you drool reading the menu and it's even better when it arrives. Only surpassed by the amazing service we received - the staff were so friendly and accommodating with our requests. It felt like the best parts of a small family restaurant right in the heart of the city. A new favourite place for us!

Easy to see why Orleans is so popular. Wonderful vibe, great and prompt service and the atmosphere is awesome. Very pleased with our night out. We had the delicious ribs - falling of the bone and a generous portion. Corn bread was so tasty. Curly fries were soft on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Super yum fried veges tied the meal up nicely. We both left super full and satisfied. Will be returning with friends!!
