When you step off the hustle and bustle of Quay Street into the iconic Ferry Building, you’ll think you’re stepping into another world. Thick red brick walls keep out the sound of the traffic while our floor-to-ceiling windows let in the soft sea breezes and the mewling of the seagulls.

Whether you need a venue for a business meeting, a large family gathering, or a cosy dinner with some special friends, anyone who knows Harbourside can truthfully say this is one of the best 5 star fancy restaurants near me.

The Harbourside Story

Harbourside Ocean Bar Grill has been at the core of Auckland’s restaurant scene since it first opened in 1988. Since then, this classic restaurant has been extensively refurbished and is just as classy today as it was more than 30 years ago.

Although we do offer different menus for a variety of dining preferences – including vegetarian and non-vegetarian seafood and non-seafood options – seafood is our speciality. All our fresh seafood items are caught locally and in keeping with sustainable fishing practices.

In addition to our Main Dining Room and Bar, Harbourside boasts a large all-weather deck and two private rooms. Different-sized spaces can also be created by partitioning indoor or outdoor areas. We have the perfect space for small or large groups and parties, from as few as 14 people to as many as 230. In this area, Harbourside is definitely one of the best private dining room restaurants near me.

Getting Here

Access to Harbourside is easy: We are just off Quay Street, a major thoroughfare, connecting just about anywhere with just about anywhere else. We are just a stone’s throw from the Downtown Ferry Terminals (Piers 1 or 2); even the Downtown Ferry Terminal 4 (117 Quay Street) is within easy reach.

The picturesque Quay Street Waterfront is so close it’s practically adjacent to our location. For a great waterfront bar and grill near me, I know I can’t do better than Harbourside!
