The original outpost of the legendary cafe-come-bar group, Lone Star Manchester Street specialises in mighty meat dishes, killer cocktails, and good vibes.

When Steve Ward and Tim Whelan founded it in 1988 they were on a mission to make restaurants fun and boy did they deliver. Think a classic party soundtrack, quirky menus featuring the likes of Stand By Your Lamb (slow-roasted lamb shoulder) and a hip team.

Enjoy grass-fed sirloin with buffalo chips (gluten-free fries are available) or free-range chicken topped with sweet, tangy cranberry salsa. Vegetarian and seafood lovers are well looked after too with a mouth-watering selection of dishes.

When it comes to drinks, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Choose from the best New Zealand wines & amp; craft beers, and don’t miss the world-famous frozen margaritas!
