The apartment I was staying in had information about Neo, so I decided to have brunch here. Some items on the menu I had never seen on a breakfast menu before, like snapper & steak. Decided on a potato based dish with poached eggs, dill,...yoghurt & chili which was fantastic. Eggs were perfectly poached & contrasted well with the crispy potatoes. Service & coffee were also really good, highly recommend a visit if you are near the Auckland Central areaMore

love this hideaway bar - above the hustle and bustle of Queen St. Lovely outdoor street side balcony - somehow feels warm even in winter. We didnt go back for about ten months once and hey recognised us right away, warm and real customer service,...professional but friendly. Love the tapas style dishes - try the lamb meatballs. Good wine list too. Cool and tucked away place - even our teens like it and trust me they are fussy.More

This our 2nd time here, once we went for a lunch, food was ok. We went back to see how the dinner menu looked. Well the menu looked as if it needed to be retired, was all dog eared and grubby. .IMHO be better to...laminate them, so they could be wiped down after each use. We were going to have a dinner, but after state of the tables, menus etc, we left after a drink.More

We visited for Sunday brunch. The place was quiet (unsurprising on a long weekend), and we were in for a treat. The staff were great, as was the food. The Bismarck pancake was delicious, and even the scrambled egg on sourdough was perfect.

My husband booked this venue for my 40th birthday (in writing) three weeks ago, which we later confirmed in person with Marianne on at least two occasions. We have just been told that they have booked another function instead. When I called to say that...there must have been a mistake, and they would need to tell the (second in line) other group that there had been a mistake I was told that the other function was bigger they would rather have that one. Marianne was full of excuses and lies, saying she had tried to contact us by email but then saying she knew their email system had been hacked. She even went so far as to tell me that surely I no longer want the booking because we might not be treated so well after I complained. Terrible service guys, and I would not recommend booking here if you want a reliable and friendly venue.More

Great place in central Auckland. Great for a sunny day where we got to sit outside with a view of Aucklnad. I came here for brunch, and there was a variety of tasty and fancy dishes on the menu. I ordered the waffle benedict which...came at a resonable time.More

Came here for lunch on our final day visiting Auckland before heading to the airport. The food was excellent, especially the cauliflower dish and snapper goujons. The cauliflower was a particularly unexpected and welcome surprise. We also had great recommendations for the wine as well....Highly recommended and a lovely way to end our trip. Thank you!More

This is a relaxed and comfortable eatery, upstairs in the Queens Arcade. My companion and I arrived close to the time that the kitchen would close, but they welcomed us in and explained we would need to order quickly. We enjoyed a delicious salad of...roasted cauliflower, goats cheese, edible flowers, lentils and greens. It was colourful, fresh and very enjoyable. There is a lovely outdoor patio, also plenty of indoor seating. The atmosphere is calm and we did not feel any pressure to leave, which was appreciated. I would come again.More

Neo is a great place to sit with a coffee and watch the city go by. The drinks are not the cheapest but the coffee is definitely tasty. The deck is nicely laid out and they have heaters if you get cold. I would definitely...go back to try to food if it was more in my budget but I am glad we went in for a coffee.More
