This restaurant is a must! Food, atmosphere and service were excellent. We sat in a cozy little booth out back. We ordered arepas and short ribs, both were delicious. They have local New Zealand beers on tap and a nice wine list. Traveling on a budget can be difficult but I found the prices very reasonable.

So good, so yummy, such nice staff and such a good vibe! Love mixing it up and ordering different things, and especially love that it feels like you've gone on a tropical holiday in your lunchhour!

We've stopped back many times for brunch here after just going there to try somewhere different out. Delighted to sit in a private covered cubicle in the back open area. Yes it has "different-ness", not run-of-the-mill at all, looks like a music memorabilia store and has plenty of interesting players & stuff to browse - and great staff, top varied offerings & excellent coffee, we felt welcome the first time there & every time since. They continue to do improvements all the time!

Actually, maybe it was five times! Conch is wonderful - the coffee is the best we could find in Ponsonby (we're from Melbourne, so flushed for choice over this side of the pond and total coffee snobs), and the food carries some wonderful flavours. The eggs and guacamole for breakfast did just the trick, so too the corn bread and tacos for lunch. The staff at Conch are really lovely, and the tunes travelling through the airwaves really make the place worth going back to...clearly! If I could have brought anything home from my trip to Auckland, it would have been Conch.

Have walked past this place a thousand times and didn't even realise it was a restaurant - my partner read a review in the newspaper so we decided to try it out today for lunch, it was a fantastic choice!

We had the tacos, beef ribs and ceviche to share, everything was fantastic - couldn't fault anything.

Good service, good food, great value and cool outdoor venue - can't wait to return for breakfast (the menu looks amazing!)
