I've certainly had better smokehouse meats, but the servings are huge. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, just not great. It's fantastic value for money and the beer selection is great.

My husband and I went there the first day we were in Auckland. It was a beautiful day and was the Sunday before Auckland Anniversary so the area was busy and it was great people watching. My husband and I shared the Grilled Squid with chorizo, white bean, silverbeet and a maple chili glaze. It was delicious! The flavor combination... More

On the water at North Wharf in the emerging Wynyard quarter this place has it all... almost. A great location, overlooking a working set of quays, within an easy walk of downtown. Sunny outdoor seating (Auckland's fickle weather allowing). Pleasant and attentive staff - cannot fault their service. And, given the above, their pricing is pretty reasonable too! Just one... More

Stopped in for lunch on the way back to our cruise ship tender. IT was a public holiday and most of the waterfront bars and restaurants quite full. We secured a front table with umbrella and ordered drinks. Plenty of choice of wines and beers. We shar d a seafood platter and whittled away a couple of hours people watching.... More

Enjoyed dinner here overlooking the waterfront on a sunny evening. Food was good - we enjoyed fresh snapper, a sharing meat platter which was huge and good value, prawns and a burger. Waiting staff were good although they had to be asked for more drinks and water on more than one occasion. Good selection of beer and wine.

Dear management of Marvel. How is it you pay high rent and employ good staff to then squander that by providing average food which is overpriced. This place is tourist trap city. Avoid it for poor cuts of meat at top prices and weird management. Good points. Location is great. Wait staff we had were fantastic. Beer selection not too... More

Went to Marvel after seeing chicken entree on their website. Menu at restaurant no longer had the chicken. Had to ask to be seated and had to order my first drink twice! Asked for second beer to come with my meal (pre-ordered since waitress would disappear for lengthy periods). Hostess delivered second before my meal and unopened. Had to ask... More

Went to Marvel Bar and Grill with Auckland visitors. The menu looked great, lots to choose from. Our first impression was that the staff really didn't want to be there, most requests seemed too hard. The female waitress that took our order was lovely, we were told there was no extra wait time for food, 6 breakfast meals ordered. Coffees... More
