Eat & Drink

Whether you’re looking for a coffee, quick bite or more leisurely meal, there is a restaurant, bar or cafe to suit every taste at Takapuna Beach.

Relax with a coffee and pastry at a vibrant café, or enjoy cuisine from around the world at one of the many restaurants and bars, choose from authentic Mexican, Thai, Italian, Indian, Japanese or Colombian.

Bring your family and friends and try the award-winning woodfired pizzas from Dante’s Pizzeria, some scrumptious traditional Colombian barbecue from El Humero, or the fresh and personalised poke bowls from Poké Poké. Grab a burger and an old-fashioned milk shake from Burger Burger or stop by Glass Sushi Boutique for sushi that looks so good, you won’t want to eat it!

After your meal, wander down Hurstmere Rd a few metres to enjoy a late coffee and a sweet treat at the cozy House of Chocolate.

On the other side of Hurstmere Road, towards the beach, the stylish Commons bar and restaurant opens out onto a spacious leafy outdoor bar area and is a popular choice to have a drink and dine, as are neighbouring Mexico restaurant, and Zomer Cafe and Beach Club.

If it’s a more relaxed bar setting you’re after Takapuna Bar, Catnapper Arms, Florrie McGreal’s Irish Pub, and The Elephant Wrestler on the main road are a great place to meet friends for a casual drink and meal.
