Cuisine: Mediterranean, Modern European
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

This warm and friendly restaurant offers an international menu of old Kiwi favourites alongside the best from Europe and the Mediterranean.

Think scotch fillet with roasted carrots and whipped potato, fresh fish of the day, seafood pasta and vegetarian mezze Lebanese. The must-try signature dish is duck à l’orange - crispy duck breast served with roast golden kumara, sautéed vegetables and orange honey jus.

Few can resist Aubergine’s fantastic desserts menu; mouth-watering orange and almond cake, crème brûlée and cookies and cream cheese cake await. There’s a generous selection of fine New Zealand and imported wines available as well as beers, cocktails and non-alcoholic beverages.

Aubergine sits up to 140 and is well-equipped to cater for groups with fast, friendly and efficient service. If you’re heading to a show after dinner, let the staff know and they’ll ensure you are wined, dined and out the door on time.

Food was great. Pre food service was great...once food finally came out they could have asked if we needed another drink. Also check your bill before paying.

Great food and service. My friend asked for no dresssing on her salad but the meal still came with dressing. When we raised this with the waitress it was sorted out extremely quickly and easily. Will definitely return.

Staff were very friendly and food was delicious, except one of the selections by two of our us was not available.
This should have been highlighted before we studied the menu. However, another choice was selected and it was very tasty.

Such a fantastic experience as always. They have recently renovated which has made the atmosphere and ambience even nicer. My friend has some special dietary requirements and they were extremely attentive and made us feel valued. Food was fabulous and we couldn't have asked for a better dining experience. Each one of the staff was great!!

We each had duck comfit - very good and a delicious sauce and amazing purple cabbage - treated somehow to make it very special.

Exceptional desserts! Tiramisu and lemon cheesecake were light and tangy respectively - great end to a lovely meal. Calamari starter was delicious with a gorgeous pickled salad - so tasty and fresh. Hubby didn't love the jus with his steak but that is because it was quite sweet and he isn't a sweet meat person so this was the only downside for him - otherwise the steak was melt in the mouth and my confit duck was very tasty. Thanks for the lovely service too.

We had today’s fish and steak as main for 2 of us. Fish was Tarakihi and cooked nicely, veggie was tasty, too. Beef steak cooked well done as our request, but still soft and moist. The desserts were looks same as before and they don’t have Tiramisu any more which was my favourite. So we didn’t have any desserts the day. Dinner time was very nice light up and enjoy looking outside street. Will come back soon.

Great vibes at this restaurant, we were greeted at the door by a very friendly man, could have been the owner/manager. He was so happy that we were there and sat us quickly. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, even once the restaurant started getting busy, they were always checking up on us asking if we wanted anything more or how the food was. The food was beautifully presented, great portion sizes and yummy. The only thing which was a little strange was the heavy-vinegar salad beside the calamari. We did not eat it but there was plenty of calamari that it did not matter. Overall, great experience and cheap!

We had a great experience at Aubergine, we have been a couple of times before but it was our first time booking through First Table. The food was delicious and the service was great. We had the eye fillet and the lamb shoulder dishes for mains. The restaurant is very nice and ambient. The creme brûlée is always my personal favourite and as usual it did not disappoint!! We will most definitely be back :)

You can defiantly tell this restaurants newly renovated. I loved the open flow and decor or the restaurant and they had a large covered outdoor area perfect for a drink and nibbles in Summer!
The service was abit slow, we waited approx 40 mins for our main even though there was less than a handful of tables occupied.
Our mains were very tasty, I ordered the Pork Steak which was cooked perfectly with a nice sauce. The warm chocolate cake was yummy! If you're not in a hurry or starving I'd recommend this restaurant.

Food was absolutely fantastic as always and couldn't be faulted. A little disappointed in the service which was haphazard. Despite there only being 4 tables in, we had 4 different waitresses, no one 'owned' us and we had to flag them down to ask for drinks etc. We also waited over 40 minutes to order as they thought we were waiting on someone, but didn't actually ask if we were waiting for someone.... It was a shame as the setting and food were absolutely on point.

Excellent food and service
Made me a cocktail which wasn't on the drinks list. They do not use straws anymore so I ended up having to "drink the foamy" top first before getting the drink at the bottom. Can understand where they are going without plastic straws but it wasn't as good to drink.

Excellent portion size for what you pay for. Had the grilled lamb rump and it was delicious. Atmosphere and interior design of the restaurant is great. The calamari entree was really good as usually restaurants I’ve been to only have a salad on the side but Aubegerine exceeded my expectations by providing side dishes of pickled vegetables and something else I’m unsure how to describe but it was delicious nonetheless. I highly recommend you book this restaurant!
