The Birdcage Tavern

an Auckland icon

Experience casual dining at one of Auckland's most historic restaurants. Established in 1885, The Birdcage has been returned to her former glory with stained glass windows and original brick walls blended with more modern elements to give it a chic, metropolitan vibe.

Outside, the north-facing courtyard bar is one of the biggest and sunniest in Auckland where you can kick back and relax with a selection of interesting wines.

The food is rustic in style and the meals (lunch and dinner) will continue to evolve as guests dine as they feel. Every product sourced is interesting and the wine list aims to encourage customers to try something new.
