Cuisine: European, Mediterranean, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+

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!

This was the first time we had used First Table. We are now hooked! What a wonderful way to enjoy Auckland's finest as discounted rates. I love having the early dinner sitting as we can go out for a wonderful date night and still be back in time to put the kidz to bed.

Astor was a great experience. The ambiance was awesome - there was even a lovely chap playing the guitar. We had the Tapas and they were delicious. A lovely variety of tasty treats. we had the full selection as starters and mains.

The cocktails were delicious as were the coffee's at the end of the meal.

We'll certainly be back!

I’ve booked a few first tables and booked this one for my sisters birthday. A group of 4 ladies. The food was by far the most amazing out of everywhere we’ve eaten and we will definitely go back. All of us couldn’t stop raving, we had a range of different mains and tapas and not one dish was too our disliking. Well done to the chef and lovely staff. The place is set further down from the others but the restaurant is beautiful, you can sit inside or out. We had a heater and the lovely girl gave me a blanket. Thank you for a great afternoon

Friendly welcome, extra attention for coeliac choices, (actually written down as a separate menu for us) succulent scallops, the King prawns very "moreish" & each main exceeded expectations. Desserts...yum! & decorated for the birthday person.
Comfortable seating & the "greenery walls" add an extra dimension. Of course..must mention sea view. .Thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thank you.

Astor Tapa’s is a MUST!!
The owner is this great guy who I would happily take out for a drink. Also he remembered my drink so bonus points to you!

Ordered the Venison meatballs and Grilled Tiger prawns (small tapas) as entrees and it was delicious and flavoursome.

For mains we ordered the Ribeye steak and Moroccan lamb shank.. Call it melt in the mouth but it was definitely something I would happily come back for.

Last but not least the Turmeric Rhubarb Panacota was definitely different but again couldn’t fault the meal at all. Thank you for a great night.

Went with a group of 4 of us and we all left very happy. The food was amazing, we got 8 different tapas, all of which had so much flavour and such beautiful presentation. Would highly recommend the mushrooms and the gnocchi they were so good! Desserts were also to die for, we got the affrogato and the brownie. Great friendly service from the waiter as well, highly recommend this spot.

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.

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.

We had a lot of trouble finding the place due to apple maps being outdated for its location. But, when we did get there, the host was polite and our table was still available. The server was quick, the food was great, and they honoured our voucher although we had passed the 15min window due to our trouble locating the venue. Would definitely go back! :)

Really lovely spot along the water front with views of the Bridge. They have big heaters outside so we were able to sit outside comfortable in winter weather. The service was great and the food was really good as well. We had steaks and some tapas, one of the steaks was a bit fatty but apart from that I would come here again.

My friend and I ordered mainly appetizers and they were all delicious. The lamb shanks were particularly flavourful and our server was great. Although the food was a bit pricey, it’s understandable considering the prime location of the restaurant.

People were really nice, but we had to wait for a long time to get our food (and we have a 5-year-old who behaved surprisingly well - so proud of him). When the food arrived, the steaks were very tasty. However, the vegetables were kind of sad, and the crispy squid had lots of dough and little squid. We have been having great experiences at First Table restaurants... We will probably not go back to this one, though.
