About Botswana Butchery Auckland
Botswana Butchery , Auckland’s newest waterfront restaurant, combines premium produce, wine and local ingredients from the Auckland region with the best of what Central Otago can offer. Located in the historic Ferry Building on Quay Street, Botswana Butchery brings a taste of the South to the heart of Auckland city.
The restaurant offers lunch, dinner and bar menus in gorgeous surroundings. The ethos of 'fun dining' is key to Botswana Auckland, which is plush and wonderfully distinctive but also welcoming and fun.
Top service and food will definately come back French onion soup is to die for 😊
Little disappointed with how long the food took and considering how reputable the place is supposed to be I would have hoped rather than just an apology you would have offered a glass of wine since you're marketed as an upper class establishment. Its the little things like that that stops me from giving you 5 stars all the way. Even though we waited 1 hour plus for our food it was still extremely well cooked and tasted fantastic. The atmosphere was also great and your waiters/waitresses are well trained.
Food was stunning. Staff attentive but not over the top. Perfect. We had a great night. Thank you.
Steak wasn’t cooked how I requested it. Been going for years and the quality has been dropping every time we’ve gone. Not worth the money now
The service was,I think, the best I’ve had in New Zealand so far.
Great food great service
Absolutely blown away by how stunning the venue set up was as well as how romantic the evening was. Good food and great service. We will definitely be coming back as well as recommending you to all our friends and family!
Great food and service
Great location overlooking the harbour.
Food was amazing & waiter went above and beyond.
A group of three, and we had an awesome meal with great service and atmosphere. Highly recommend Botswana Butchery to anyone wanting a great night out.
Very pricey but it’s probably for the location. Delicious food - wish the herb marinated lamb’s asparagus was either warm or better tasting (felt odd to eat warm meat and cold asparagus in the same bite). Overall, good ambiance, good service, yummy food, and easy to book a reservation.
The Wife and I had a fantastic night and the service was top class.
Absolutely loved dining here. The service was impeccable, food was absolutely beautiful. Could not fault a thing. Will definitely be back
We had a fantastic evening, the wine recommendation was superb and we were beautifully looked after all evening.
It was disappointing to come here for a very special occasion, where our wine choice was not available (another table had three choices not available either), to have cutlery bent so severely that even the waitress said we could be injured by it, to have to listen to tables on either side of us having vulgar, sexual conversations and swearing loudly, without the staff stepping in, or to have ordered the threesome of beef and never he told exactly what it was we were eating, until we asked. Our main waiter was lovely, and the food enjoyable, however the rest of the evening left a sour taste, considering it was meant to be fine dining.
Won’t be coming back this is the second time we have received our sides 20 minutes after our main was delivered. I bought people here for a special occasion and it was a terrible experience. To offer to give us our sides for free wasn’t enough as with any meal you would expect to have the whole meal at once.
Since I was a child, visiting New Zealand was my travel dream. Decades later, my dream came true. We stayed in Auckland at the beginning and at the end of our month-long journey. We dined at Botswana Butchery during our first stop in Auckland, and loved it! The service, the atmosphere, the delicious food and great wine selection. I'm a vegetarian, haha, and the waiter gladly helped steer me (pun intended) to a super-tasty Spinach Arancini dish. My husband said his steak (the Eye Fillet) was the best he's ever had. Prepared perfectly. The vegetable sides and salads were beautiful, fresh and yummy too. And oh, do save room for dessert! During the 3 weeks we traveled through many parts of the North and South Islands, we looked forward to getting back to Auckland so we could visit Botswana Butchery one more time before flying home. When they found out it was our last night in NZ, the management and staff treated us like special guests. Ordering our meal was extremely easy - once again we enjoyed our Arancini, Eye Filet, several side dishes and fine NZ wines. Thanks to all at Botswana Butchery - we vow to return! Perhaps we'll try something else from your awesome menu next time . . . ;-)
Absolutely wonderful. Great service, great food and beautiful view. Mezzanine area is the perfect place for a private group dinner. From Entree to desserts, faultless!
Service was slow and poor. Food was fair, definitely not worthy of the prices. Seems like they overbooked or understaffed for the level of bookin.
Great choice for a dinner out with an overseas visitor. And excellent location in the city.
We had an extremely enjoyable evening, from the moment we stepped in the door. Your service was impeccable, food divine and a lovely atmosphere. We were celebrating a birthday and you kindly obliged to offer a happy birthday dessert. Thank you!
