Small plates with plenty of heart and views for days; welcome to Astor Tapas Bar and Eatery.

Nestled next to the Princes-Wharf Viaduct, the location couldn’t be more idyllic. Soak in the turquoise water (not literally), watch passers-by and admire the twinkling lights of the city at night whilst you tuck into various tasty Mediterranean dishes.

The tapas menu is perfect in catering to every taste. For the meat-lovers amongst you, choose from venison meatballs and a melt-in-the-mouth lamb rack. Alternatively, enjoy meat-free options like gnocchi covered in fresh tomato sauce or a zingy Greek salad. There are also regular mains like roast chicken and paella to indulge in too.

You might be reading the drinks menu for some time. With an extensive list of wines, champagnes, beers and spirits, you have a range of boozy accompaniments. Mocktails are on offer too - a great option for those who don’t want to wake up to a sore head!

Everything looks great from the food, service, and ambiance with a bonus view of the harbour bridge and the lesser crowd.
We ordered ribeye, sirloin, salmon, lamb, ultimate paella, bread dips, and tiger prawn. We love everything especially their paella!
Their price is a bit expensive but once you've taste it you'll know why

We had dinner last night before heading to Boyzone, on arrival we realised we had been before there before when it was Limon! We had a great evening ordering about 6 tapa small plates and then sharing the paella for 2 amongst the 4 of us. The food was lovely, flavourful and well presented the best dish voted by everyone was the stuffed mushrooms! Service was attentive and the decor was fresh, its lovely to be able to sit outside under the heaters even in the slightly cooler weather. Overall a lovely evening.

The service is friendly welcoming and attentive.. and the food delicious.. I had the prawns and calamari which were generous portions. A nice glass of red and the stunning outlook near the end of the wharf back towards the Harbour Bridge. Looking forward to going back soon.

a nice setting overlooking the water. Food was very tasty and service was very good. The excellent live music from Flamenco Guitar player really makes it and provides great atmosphere which increased my service mark from a 4 to a 5. We will be back.

Cocktails were fantastic!
We ordered 7 small plates & 3 desserts - all of them delicious. Our 7 year old (and biggest critic) said the Calamari was perfect.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and had an awesome experience. The service and atmosphere was great with live music. I ordered the venison meatballs, and potato bravatas, which was really delicious. My husband ordered the lamb shank, which was superbly prepared....I tasted abit of course. The meat literally fell off the bone.
Will definitely be back and will tell all my friends at work! Thank you.

Amazing ambiance and location, you really feel like you are in Europe.
My best friend and I went on Friday, we shared 5 tapas and had wine. The food was amazing! The chorizo stuffed mushrooms were to die for! The bread and dips were amazing as were the venison meatballs, calamari and prawns! Can't wait to come back again :)

Had a lovely dinner in the sun outside at Astor. Friendly service was complemented by some very yummy tapas. We ordered the lamb chops, patatas bravas, meatballs, gnocchi, calamari rings and crumbed fish. Lovely selection of flavours, particularly the sauces.

Food overall was good; perhaps a bit on the saltier end - but flavoursome and beautifully presented. The lamb rack tapas was my favourite. The staff were amazing - friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed a lovely meal with views of the harbour.

Our waitress was lovely and welcoming. We chose to have Tapas and got 5 to share between us. Greek salad was lovely and potatoes were to. I would have given food a 5 star but lamb chops were slightly cold so not as nice as they could have been.

The location is great. The food not so good. The server forgot my husbands main course so we ate mine then his when it finally came. The vegetables were 3 kinds of heavy starch.

We tried Astor Tapas and Eatery last night, it is one of the nice restaurants on Princess Wharf. Staff were attentive and friendly, We order Peach and Red wine sangria they were really delicious. Food was amazing, tasted Italian/Greek with a twist of spices. We enjoyed everything we had, the Paella, stuffed mushrooms, Salmon, and the fries were most delicious but we would say they were all great! We will be happy to eat here again. As for next time, we will make sure that we order baklava desert beforehand as it was too popular that we had missed out on that!

The place was hard to find, but we are so glad we did. We got the berry/lemoncello sangria which went down far too easily! We tried lots of different meal options and they were delicious. I will definitely be returning when I am back In Auckland. Thank you so much for a great evening.

Nice setting to have dinner. The prawns were delicious, but the lamb cutlets were a little overdone! Loved the option of buying wine by the glass or carafe, instead of just by the glass or bottle. Overall a nice evening.

The service was excellent and the food was great. Nothing like cold beer and a bunch of different hot Tapas with a view of the water.

We went when it was raining quite heavily, it was a unique and cozy experience to be on an outside (but still sheltered) table hearing the rain and jazz music.

Personal favorites were the oysters and gnocchi, my eating companion raved about the chorizo, parmesan stuffed mushrooms and the Spanish meatballs.

We are planning to go again sometime next week.

Food was ok - A bit confused with the style - we ordered the lamb rack that was pretty tough and cold - looked like it was cooked a few days prior. Meatballs were ok, nothing really amazing about the menu. Service was great - they girls were really looking after all the tables. Sangria was spot on!

Nice food and good portions.
The lamb shack didn’t have a strong lamb taste, just seasoning.

The sangria was a little bit flat and too sweet, could be stronger.
But in total a nice evening with good service, after 50 min we finished our dinner and left.
