Cuisine: A La Carte, Cocktail Bar, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35

A dreamy, Ibiza-inspired hotspot right on the waterfront of Auckland’s North Shore.

Tasteful rattan lampshades, glass doors that slide open to allow the outside in and an enormous ice bar laden with fresh shellfish create the sort of chilled vibes that make everyday feel like a holiday.

Fresh, seasonal menus showcase the best Kiwi produce. Market fish sits alongside hearty meat and pasta dishes, as well as a mouthwatering selection of sides. We can’t get enough of chicken schnitzel with honey-roasted root veggies, rounded off with a spiced coconut pannacotta.

Take your pick from more than 25 beers (can anything beat cracking a cold one while listening to the sounds of the waves?) or tipple your way around New Zealand’s best vineyards.

Whether you’re looking to break up a beach day or linger long into the night, Regatta Bar and Eatery is the perfect spot!

Reviews

This restaurant delivers excellent food and service. The dishes we had were of a high standard right across the evening. Our entrees of prawns with chorizo and the squid were well presented and the squid was light and tasted great with the fresh chilli as well as the side of jam.
We both opted for the tuna as a main course and it was cokked perfectly still nice and pink throughout, it went really well with the smoked chick peas. The dessert menu was too good to pass on and we shared a passionfuit panacotta which rounded off the evening really nicely and capped a wonderful experience and setting. Will definatley be coming back to Regatta.

Busy up beat restaurant overlooking Takapuna beach, highly recommend if you are a seafood lover, although husband enjoyed the Steak and chips .Great menu, We ordered Clevedon oysters which came piping hot, Prawns which was very tasty with the dollop of lemon gel. For mains I had Swordfish which came with smoky bacon, grapes which was so delicious. Previous in the week I had swordfish at another restaurant but it was not a patch on Regattas presentation Our waitress was amazing, very attentive and cheerful her name was Christa or Clinsta.. Highly recommend Regatta as it is a special place, we will be back when in Auckland again. Thank you

This is one of the few dining places taking advantage of NZ's beautiful coastline. Luckily dinner is casual enough to get a good mix from after-work drinks, families and date nights in the evening, but still a notch or two above pub food quality. Outdoor seating is a welcome bonus.

Excellent table looking out to the water. The service was excellent and the food awesome.

We went to Regatta quite a few times in the past but the pricing was what kept us from coming back more often, so the First Table opportunity was one not to be missed! The food was still delicious. We love the fact that there is always at least 4 choices of different interesting fish dishes, which sadly is a rare thing around here. I had the swordfish, and it was cooked to perfection and was served on a bed of deliciously seasoned chickpeas and grapes. The service is very professional and relaxed, although we did order a side dish which never arrived, but it didn't matter so much to us. We wished some of the the plates (especially the entrees) were a bit more substantial, but every dishes we had were really good. Overall we had a good time and will come back, especially if the FirstTable deal stays available.

First time First Table user. I had my birthday dinner with my two children last night and we had a lovely night. We ordered the squid, steak, gnocchi and kids cheeseburger meal. We all loved it! For desserts we ordered panacota, pavlova and kids brownie. All desserts looked the same size and very tasty. My daughter ordered a mocktail which tasted great, but we had to chase it up after our main meals had been served. Also, the guy serving us was very patient and friendly. Greeted me Happy Birthday during and before we left, but no birthday candle to blow on my dessert (probably not their thing). Overall, happy with our night. Thanks!

SAIL ON IN TO REGATTA! We arrived on time and were taken to our table, a lovely spot by the window with a beautiful view. They took our drinks order then a few minutes later a delightful young man brought two dishes to our table. "That is lovely thank you" l said, "except we haven't ordered yet".
He apologised and left.. the only criticism l (could but don't) have is it would have been great if he delivered his meals then returned to take our order, we nearly had to show a bit of leg to get attention and place our order but that was fine, just a newbie waiter in training l think, a very nice, polite young man
In due course they took our order.. food great as always, service thereafter attentive but not overbearing, perfect! Another great experience at Regatta, thank you all :) BTW, as with many other restaurants these days, there is a credit card surcharge here.. EXCEPT WHEN YOU LEAVE A TIP, THE SURCHARGE IS WAIVED. So hows about give a little bit of what you save via First Table back to the wait staff.. they will thank you for it AND give you a further saving of 2%, yay!

Even early on this restauarant was pretty busy, we were greeted and seated straight away and had a nice table looking out of the window towards the sea. Our waiter was very friendly and explained the specials and also what wasn't available on the menu. We decided on 2 entrees and 2 mains. Our entrees of chicken liver parfait and prawns with chorizo butter were both very tasty and the prawns had a lovely charring to them. Our waiter did also offer us extra toast to finish off the parfait which was a nice touch. The mushroom gnocchi main was a good size portion and very tasty with the pea puree it worked well. We also had the broad bill which was lightly seared and served with chickpeas . A great atmosphere with some great views, this place will also be nice for a drink on Summer when you can sit our side and enjoy the views even more.

What a great experience from start to finish. Our table was facing the beach so we had a wonderful view of Takapuna beach and Rangitoto Island. Our favourite dishes were the Szechuan squid, chargrilled tuna with grapes, and the seafood chowder. Service was effervescent and warm. I would definitely be back!

My partner and I love variety so we tend to buy a whole lot of entrées or small dishes to share.
Suuuuper stoked to have done our usual...
We had the pork belly, ribs, prawns and beetroot small plate - ABSOLUTELY DEEEELISH.
The pumpkin puree goes so well with the pork belly dish.
The prawns are super tasty and again the puree with them brings joy to every bite.
We love the sweet and salty combo and the beetroot with whipped Feta nailed this for us. It even had mandarin which was a new addition to beetroot which we loved.
Ribs came off the bone easily with a yum sauce. And they were tidy to eat due to the bones being clean to grab at the ends.

YUM.

Highly recommend. Will definitely be back.

Yummy food with a stunning view - Yes :)

Probably the best restaurant in Takapuna. Location couldn't be better. The decor is simply tasteful. The staff were so attentive and friendly. The food was incredible and so well presented. We got food envy looking around the restaurant. The beef cheek melted in the fork and on your tongue. Starter squid was the most flavorful I've ever experienced. Such a perfect menu selection catering for all tastes and a wine menu to compliment. I would highly recommend you visit Ragatta, I know we sure will!

On a cold wet evening we were greeted with warm friendly smiles when we arrived for our meal. We had a great table by the window looking down across the road to the sea.
Our server was great and explained the specials to us an took our drinks order. The dining area filled up quickly but the staff were relaxed and looked in control. We opted for 2 entrees and 2 mains, the beef tartine was a pleasant surprise served on bread with some sublime onions which were great, as was the beetroot dish with its burst of colours. The mains were just a s good and the beef cheek was soft and fell apart when you got your fork near it. The burger was a good old fashioned stack cooked medium and in a normal bun rather than a brioche which was good to see. There was a side of chips with the burger but we struggled to.finish them as the portions were generous. Regatta is a great place to dine with a good vibe and relaxed atmosphere. Good to dine as a couple or a group,, go.give it a try..

Perfect dining experience in a great location by the sea. My husband and I dined at Regatta for the first time in Takapuna. We were so impressed with everything. We had a perfect dining experience this included our great friendly knowledgeable waitress Christine, followed by fast service of food and drinks. The food was divine, hubby had Confit Pork Belly for entree myself I had Szechuan Peppered Squid followed by the most amazing main of Chargrilled Market Fish-(which was tuna) / smoked chickpea /bacon / wakame this was super-tasty and absolutely delicious. Honestly I cant say enough good about Regatta. If you want an amazing dining experience with exceptional food and friendly staff that care about their customers this is the place for you. We will definitely be back as its the type of place you will talk about with others and want to share the joy with close family and friends. Perfect....

For starters, waiter was next level. I never tip but we tipped, he was that good. Food however, bery average. Hit and miss really. The seafood chowder was predominantly seaweed flavoured and quite overpowering. The ribs, well I know the menu said bourbon ketchup. But we were not expecting it to be dry ribs with lashings of just tomato sauce on top. I mean I love tomato sauce, but to be the only sauce on your ribs? Not so much. Loads of tomato sauce on chips yes, ribs no. Picnic bar desert...delicious. Gnocchi, amazing.

We'd never eaten at the Regatta before and were excited to be trying it for the first time as it has such a great location near Takapuna Beach. A friend was visiting from out of town and we were celebrating our business's 2nd birthday - a HUGE milestone for us! We thought booking the Regatta would be a great way to celebrate this occasion.

My friend is pregnant so we treated ourselves to mocktails which was divine - we both ordered Ginger Mules, perfect for the summer evening, we could have drunk them all night!

For starters we tried the warmed bread with seaweed butter and olive oil, and the Szechuan pepper squid. The bread was underwhelming (nothing too special but if you like bread I am sure you'll enjoy this dish), but the squid was very tasty. Wish we'd ordered a plate of it for each of us. My only comment on the squid is it's a shame they serve it with a bland sweet chilli sauce, it would have been better complemented by a wasabi mayo or something with a bit more bite.

For mains we both chose the market fish of the day - my friend had the pan fried Kingfish (it was okay, nothing too special. Came with an interesting orange reduction that was hard to pick the flavour of).
However I had the chargrilled Tuna and was extremely disappointed with my mains. The tuna was overcooked and looked like the colour of tin tuna and the taste was basically the same but had a chargrill aftertaste. It was incredibly disappointing they chose to overcook what could have been an amazing dish. I don't recommend either of these mains if you go there - or if you do want to try them I would ask them how they cook it and if they plan on serving the tuna the same. I have never seen tuna this overcooked before. It was not what I expected and the flavours were underwhelming so I didn't eat the tuna at all and simply had the warmed chickpea and grape salad that it was served with (the salad in itself was an interesting combo, but it seemed to work).

If you're expecting delicious light coloured and flavoursome fresh fish, then triple check how they plan on cooking before ordering. I did see someone else's tuna and they had the same as I, so it's obviously how they choose to cook the meal.

I'd left the whole tuna on the plate and when the waiter came back to collect them and ask if the meals were okay I explained the tuna was overcooked and not what I would expect at all, that the flavour was lacking, and overall I had an average meal. She simply apologised and never came back. We were left sitting there for another 15mins or so unattended, and no response from the kitchen (I don't think she passed on the feedback). So we simply went and paid and left.

Upon paying I had to remind them again it was a first table booking, as they tried to charge us full price.

Would I go here again? For the location and tasty drinks - absolutely!
Don't let my review cloud your judgement. Our choices for mains were influenced by the fact it has a nautical theme and it's beside the ocean - so we assumed the fish dishes would be their best options. Next time I would stick to something like the seafood chowder (which looked good), or just a plain burger (they too look amazing).

Busy up beat restaurant overlooking Takapuna beach, highly recommend if you are a seafood lover, although husband enjoyed the Steak and chips .Great menu, We ordered Clevedon oysters which came piping hot, Prawns which was very tasty with the dollop of lemon gel. For mains I had Swordfish which came with smoky bacon, grapes which was so delicious. Previous in the week I had swordfish at another restaurant but it was not a patch on Regattas presentation Our waitress was amazing, very attentive and cheerful her name was Christa or Clinsta.. Highly recommend Regatta as it is a special place, we will be back when in Auckland again. Thank you

This is one of the few dining places taking advantage of NZ's beautiful coastline. Luckily dinner is casual enough to get a good mix from after-work drinks, families and date nights in the evening, but still a notch or two above pub food quality. Outdoor seating is a welcome bonus.

Excellent table looking out to the water. The service was excellent and the food awesome.

We went to Regatta quite a few times in the past but the pricing was what kept us from coming back more often, so the First Table opportunity was one not to be missed! The food was still delicious. We love the fact that there is always at least 4 choices of different interesting fish dishes, which sadly is a rare thing around here. I had the swordfish, and it was cooked to perfection and was served on a bed of deliciously seasoned chickpeas and grapes. The service is very professional and relaxed, although we did order a side dish which never arrived, but it didn't matter so much to us. We wished some of the the plates (especially the entrees) were a bit more substantial, but every dishes we had were really good. Overall we had a good time and will come back, especially if the FirstTable deal stays available.

Had a lovely evening. The seafood chowder is delicious. Would have liked a bit of a bigger piece of fish for the main meal though.

Was disappointed there were no Oysters
I thought this was a seafood restaurant
We ordered the big platter and were told they would put extra squid on to replace a dozen oysters, hardly the same or to the same value

Came for the oysters.... there were out of oysters.... at 5:30pm. Staff were inattentive and we eventually just left without eating to find another restaurant

We love Regatta - love the ambience and the busyness. The service from our young waiter was excellent. We all loved the entree platter and the dessert. However the Steak was tough, (3 ordered it) and mine had a huge lump of fat so lost a lot of the meat. We would not have been happy if we had had to pay $42 each for it. Might have just been a not so good batch from the supplier.

We went for dinner on a Friday after work and it was already very busy at 6.30pm. The atmosphere is somewhat between restaurant and pub, and kid friendly. The acoustics were quite loud inside, more like a pub or bar. Great location.
For the entree we had the farmers platter to share between 4. It had very generous portions of cured meats, chutney and pickles - we could have used a few more bits of bread and crackers to finish it all! We had 3 portions of the roasted eggplant, 1 karage chicken burger and a side of fries. The mains were tasty and we were all too full to order desert. The fries were forgotten at first but came out 10 minutes later. We didn’t mind because our waiter was very friendly and attentive. All in all, we had a good evening and would go again.

Great experience here - food came out super fast and was very yummy! Maybe slightly overpriced? Staff were super attentive and everything went well.
Thank you.

Loud music as there was a event on... mushroom gnocchi was sub-standard won’t be back

- dined at Regatta Bar & Eatery on

Good atmosphere assisted by amazing weather made for an enjoyable lunch at Regatta. My partner had the gnocchi for mains, which based on the portion size I felt was overpriced, but still very tasty and well prensented. I had the chicken burger and have to say it's probably one of the best I've ever had! Topped off with he picnic bar for dessert, which at $17 was again not considered good value in my opinion. All and all a good experience and will return later in the summer :)

Very efficient and friendly service.
The Picnic bar desert is absolutely awesome my 2nd all time favourite treat.
Sometimes a second visit doesn't measure up to the first. Not the case here we are sure to come back for a 3rd visit or more.
