About Gypsy Caravan
There have been mystic happenings in the back streets of Ponsonby. Clairvoyants have predicted it, they have arrived from far corners of the world. They come from Greece, from Turkey, from Morocco. With their spices, their rubs, their pans and wood fires.
A street food revolution is in our midst!
In mid- July be present as ‘The Street Food Collective’ is taken over by rogue band of Gypsies!
Gypsy caravan will be opening as a pop up restaurant, inspired by Moroccan tents, the Turkish bazaar, forests full of roses and strung with bead curtains. We will take you on an adventure through the back streets of Europe and Mediterranean cuisine. Our menu is fresh and light, demonstrating our take on traditional street food dishes, while making the transition from street vendor to modern restaurant.
Fear not loyal Street Food Collective followers! Our alleyways are a place of mystery and evolution. An ever-changing space, we will continue collaborate with our favorite street vendors over the next few months. Stay tuned for a calendar of exciting events & pop ups to come.
The famous ‘Herbie the bar’ will transform into his gypsy counterpart! Here to enhance our food experience with a short range of interactive cocktails, craft beer on tap, and an eclectic wine list. The show continues!
Join our journey into a new era of street food, it may be dark, it may be delightful! We promise it will be a taste adventure as we tell our new story “From Street Food Vendor to Restaurateur”
Amazing. Gorgeous atmosphere. Friendly staff. Outstanding food and drinks. Would highly recommend 💓🌸💟🦋💗Will definitely be coming back🌸
Food was amazing and cheaper than I thought it would be. Perfect place for a small lunch-time get together on a nice hot sunny day. Such a great experience!!
Absolutely beautiful venue and our hens party loved the chilled out vibes with good music, canopes and cocktails - highly recommend!
This was our first time at Gypsy Caravan and we can't wait to go back. Manager Katie went out of her way to contact me and inform me that they were having a private function and would we like to bring our booking forward as they did not want us to feel rushed in our dining experience. I was so impressed that she went out of her way to make sure we enjoyed our visit. So I knew from there we were going to have a lovely night. She also went out of her way to put us in the upstairs private area as they were setting up for the function. When we arrived all the staff knew we were coming and escorted us up stairs we were made to feel like VIP's. The service was brilliant. The staff made brilliant suggestions on food and drinks which we couldn't fault as to why we look forward to having another Gypsy experience :) Thank you for a great night.
Hi there, My husband and I had dinner with Gypsy Caravan on 15.2.18 for Valentines Day. It’s a lovely decorated venue, and the staff were incredibly polite but I just wanted to express my disappointment about the service we received. Our starters arrived 25 minutes apart from each other, and when we enquired, we were informed that all dishes were made to share. (This was despite my husbands meal served directly in front on him with no side plate for myself to share with). Our main courses were none the better. My husbands leek vegetarian main arrived while our starters were still there and then my main chicken dish arrived another 20 minutes after. The quality and flavours of the dishes was lovely. But the dishes timing was aweful. Our bill was also incorrect. Not just slightly but majority of our dishes were double charged. I wouldn’t dare say this was intentional, but after several people having similar service around us, this was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back. The bill (after our correction) was $180. Which, after cold food for my husband the entire night is, not really acceptable. Unfortunately no apology was offered at the end of the night, for what I appreciate must have been a difficult night for the servers. But that would be the stage where I expect an apology from the duty manager. Many thanks, and looking forward to your reply. Misha Cameron. Sent from my iPhone
Fantastic venue, Atmosphere, service and drinks/ food. Fred the waiter was absolutely awesome, the girls at the till and waitressing were just as lovely. I guess the only thing i can fault is that there is only one air con machine upstairs and my god did it get hot.. the drinks definitely kept me cool!
The stunning and beautiful venue, that keeps everyone together nicely. Katie was super helpful and very proactive in helping wherever she could. Beer menu could be expanded a little and parking could have been communicated a little better. Would highly recommend again.
I had my 21st birthday party here and wow what a night! The staff were amazing, food and drinks were delicious, and the venue was just perfect. Thanks so much for an unforgettable night. Will definitely be back!
What a lovely boho dining experience. Food was delicious and the whole evening experience was really fabulous
Keep the Ouzo cheese please!! It's my absolute favourite and one of my main motivations for coming back so often! I tell everyone about it :)
Really great, unique spot in Ponsonby. Amazing, tasty food.
Food was sublime- cooked and seasoned perfectly, served whilst hot... flavours of the Lamb, Steak, cauliflour and Polenta dishes were best we have had. However next time, we will order more sharing plates for those in group with larger appetites!
Amazing venue, great friendly, helpful staff. Amazing night had by all and I would totally recommend Gypsy Caravan to all my friends. Wonderful venue :) x
Was sadly disappointed by my experience at Gypsy Caravan the other night. It wasn't even 7.15pm when we were told that two of the main items on the menu were no longer available (finished). With the limited menu as it was, this was very poor of them to not have ordered sufficient quantities especially considering it was also Christmas time!!! Very overpriced too.
Great food but a little bit on the expensive side. Despite that the atmophere is excellent and would go again.
Great! a little slow with the drinks, but worth the wait :-)
Had a great time at Gypsy Caravan celebrating my boyfriend's birthday. They provided a special Birthday decor for the dessert I chose and that was really nice for the celebration. Staff was helpful and friendly. Food was awesommeeeeeee!
Perfect afternoon spent at one of Ponsonby's best establishments
Loved it! Wish we could have stayed there longer. Yummy cocktails & gorgeous atmosphere. Thanks so much for accommodating our group. Was a perfect day to start our hens day.
Amazing place, loved every minute of it thank you!
Always love your menus and service
Have used this restaurant for hosting VIP's on several occasions now. Gorgeous food, very cute setting and nice sounds. Highly recommend.
Staff were brilliant - recommended drinks and food and both were fab!!
