A popular place even on a wet midweek early evening. The staff were very welcoming, cheerful and professional. They were also very helpful when queried about one or two of the dishes.
Presentation of the dishes was excellent and portions just right. The pork belly was perfectly done - crispy on top and melt in the mouth meat on a delicious parsnip puree. My companion had the chicken schnitzel and was more than happy with it, plus a very large bowl of shoestring (crispy) fries.
We were tempted by the desserts and not disappointed - olive oil lemon cake and chocolate brown. Yum.
Definitely recommend this establishment and we are keen to return to try the other tempting dishes.

Teddy’s never fail to deliver, in terms of presentation, from the time u step into this trendy n cosy little nook of a casual smart restaurant to the time your order arrives. This restaurant is unique in that there are different spaces created for different group sizes and it makes u wanna return to host a family date at a particular spot at Teddy’s! We had market fish risotto and pork belly with pickled pear and both were yummy!
However, their sides really stole the limelight, haha, cos both sides we ordered, namely the truffle mayo shoestrings fries and chargrilled broccolini were 11/10!!

Teddy's is tucked away and one would hardly know it's there but once you've been there, you'll go back again and again! What a fabulous treat. The wine was great, the food sublime (their chocolate brownie is to die for!) and the ambience lovely. A very memorable evening.

I live pretty close to Teddy's but had never heard of it, despite its great location. The restaurant was casual but smart with a comfortable decor. The menu was excellent, with a good range and inventive ingredients matched with staples like steak, chicken and pork belly. I had the venison and my partner the pork belly, both of which were fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. Our server was attentive and nice, too. I'm sometimes apprehensive about Ponsonby dining, because it can either be needlessly formal or lacking in substance and value. But Teddy's was none of these things. We'll definitely be back.

Amazing meal at Teddy's last night! If you're only going to have one vegetarian main on the menu then you'd better make it a good one and the delicious celeriac gnocchi with wild mushroom, kale and walnut was way better than good. Also highly recommend the roast cauliflower and my partner loved the pork belly. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, including the super talented kitchen crew. We'll be going back.

We were absolutely blown away with this place as we didn't really have any expectations except from what we read on the reviews which were all really good!

We weren't expecting a fine dining experience - but that is exactly what we got - excellent food, lovely ambience in the restaurant, and the service was wonderful.

Highly recommend Teddy's for your next fine dining experience.

Last evening @Teddy’s took us by surprise. We expected good, as in a minimum of 4 or 4.5/5 yet it was nothing short of a perfect score!! Teddy’s is not a big sprawling restaurant, but the space worked to his benefit! It was cosy, intimate yet casual with a touch of elegance!
We ordered 4 mains, 3 sides and had only space for one shared dessert! Every single item we ordered wowed us, and mind u, we are foodies!
We were first served three sides, asparagus with truffle butter, spiced cauliflower with yogurt & pinenuts and shoestring fries with truffle mayo which I’ll gladly die for, in fact it’s unanimous, we all loved the sides, especially the spiced cauliflower!
Within a couple minutes, the Celeriac gnocchi, wild mushrooms with autumn greens was served, it was not just delightful to the eyes, just as delightful to our tastebuds!
Venison fillet, fregola, roasted baby beets, juniper red wine jus, the ‘hero’ of the dish was cooked to perfection, tender, succulent and full of flavour! The baby beets and fregola that accompanied had been mildly pickled with vinaigrette and had sweetness which gave that burst of flavour to this dish! Everyone who visits Teddy’s must sample their venison!
Needless to say, we were just as impressed with their confit chicken leg, shallots, porcini velouté, bacon jam and their market fish, it was snapper last night with risotto!
We discussed and decided on their adult version of Apple Pie with cheddar ice cream, it was a happy portion which was so quickly devoured!
Our adult daughters had ‘Naughtea’ and ‘Island Time’ and partner had Teddy’s drop to accompany the meal! It was one hearty meal which made our evening unforgettable!
Three cheers to the head chef and kitchen team and staff of Teddy’s!!!
We will definitely be back!!!

Service was friendly and efficient, food was cooked to perfection and came in a timely manner. The venison was incredible and schnitzel was delicious. Dairy free options were limited but they were happy to accommodate by putting ingredients on the side, I just wish there was options to replace the things I couldn’t eat
