Welcome to Pilkingtons

Pilkingtons Bar, Terrace and Kitchen is an orangery bursting with vibrant colour and texture.

We are proud to have been awarded a place in Metro’s Top 50 Restaurants 2015, and to be national finalists in the Hospitality NZ Awards for Best Beverage List, Best Dish Over $25 and Best New/Redeveloped Bar or Restaurant.

Hand-tooled joinery pieces sit alongside bespoke fabrics, natural stones and an abundance of greenery creating a sophisticated atmosphere of celebration. We offer modern upmarket European bistro style cuisine at an affordable price with an exquisite range of New Zealand and International Beverages.  A unique garden oasis in Auckland City, Pilkingtons is relaxing, inviting and nothing less than exceptional.
