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.
Entree prawns were very dry. Main slow cooked beef was dry and the duck fat potatoes I was expecting to be crunchy but weren’t . Fish was salty . We were very disappointed given this restaurant had been on our bucket list... However Dessert was amazing . Service was amazing. Which is why my American friend tipped.
Excellent meal and service
Comfy chairs nice wine list great service
Gabi took very good care of us. We were impressed with her command of English.
The mezzanine level was perfect for our group. Everyone was very happy with the evening. Food, and ambience very good. Just a small issue with not everyone having the same menu, but our waitress was very nice about it. Crime brûlée could have had more crunch on top, but apart from that, the food was delicious.
Amazing food and atmosphere!
We had a beautiful meal, the waitress was attentive and very helpful. We will be visiting again next time are in Auckland.
We had 19 people for lunch upstairs on the mezzanine level for our work Xmas. A great space and the menu was perfect. We dealt with Mandie for the booking, she was great. Thanks!
Service was very slow and unattentive - several of our meals arrived around 20 minutes after others and we were planning on sharing sides etc. steaks were also inconsistently cooked. Had a nice time with my work colleagues but wouldn't return in a hurry.
This restaurant says it closes at 11pm, but accepts booking until 10.30pm on its website. So we made a booking for 10.30pm. Even if we arrived 15mn before, the waitress didn't let us take our time to choose our menu and said the kitchen was closing soon. So we orderded in a hurry. We received our meal really fast, so fast that our cocktail arrived 5mn after! We really did not enjoy had a good time at this restaurant, the waitress was always having a look to see if we had finished. The same for our dessert, she wanted to take my plate while I was still eating! And the bill arrived as soon as I've finished my dessert!!! Why does this restaurant accepts booking until 10.30pm if it is too hurry their customers because the kitchen closes before 11pm?
Never disappointed when we go to Botswana Butchery Auckland
Massive thank you to our waitress who was amazing & provided incredible service. The food was excellent & everyone raved about the Sashimi & the duck & fillet was delicious! The only recommendation was that the toilets could have been cleaner. Thanks for a great evening!
We felt the wine was a little pricey but the food certainly made up for it.
We were expecting more from such an expensive restaurant but were disappointed. The entree whitebait fritter came with white sliced bread with butter on it, not fine dining. Rest of the meal was average.
Great atmosphere, excellent menu which caters for everyone, exceptional service. Would definitely dine there again!
For such a nice restaurant with an outstanding wine list i think you really need a Sommelier who can advise guests on wine choices please. Our dinner was really great thank you.
We really enjoyed our evening. The food was delicious and the service was top notch. The only slight complaint is the tables were rather long, taking away some intimacy. I felt we needed to talk loudly to hear each other however the next table wasn't far away so it was a tricky balance. I understand the reason they were big, the plates are big. For four eople perfect. Not so intimate for two
Excellent service provided by our lovely waiter, we had a fantastic evening, I would highly recommend to anybody looking for both corporate functions or intimate dinners.
Lovely venue. Great service.
Had a great evening with our social club,all enjoyed the the excellent service and delicious food.
Best meal we have had on our vacation yet! Everything was cooked perfectly, portions were perfect.
We dine with you often and you never fail. We will keep coming back
The lamb shoulder is cooked to perfection. We have it every time we come, and it is always delicious. Love this place :-)
