About La Zeppa

One of the best inner city bars to indulge in great food & wine around the fireplace

La Zeppa is situated at 33 Drake St Freeman's Bay, directly behind Victoria park market. La Zeppa has the feel of a New York industrial warehouse which has been lovingly transformed into a spacious bar set with wrought iron candelabras, dim lighting on soft brick and a large open fireplace. The music is mastered by local DJs at the weekends; they ensure it is played for their customers each evening, not themselves.

La Zeppa focuses on the fact that people want to enjoy each others company with a great glass of wine and tasty plates, without the constraints of having to book or have a meal at a certain time - it is the ultimate meeting place - a catch up over a glass of wine, a sit down meal or a function for a large group of friends or colleagues.

When you are at La Zeppa anywhere you rest your elbow, your will receive great service, fantastic food, a great wine list and an atmosphere you won't forget.

Arrived about 40mins early to our booking and our table was waiting for us. We were attended to straight away and our orders were taken promptly. We ordered 4 tapas dishes which were so delicious apart from the lamb skewers which were a bit fatty therefore chewy. They still had good flavours though. Dessert was yummy and the drinks were good. Sure to come back but will book an outside table in summer as it was a bit stuffy inside.

Great food and drink plus the atmosphere is one of the best in Auckland. Ordering a standard drink like wine/beer/spirits gets made right in front of you but other things like cocktails take about 15 minutes to be brought out to you. Other than that this is one of my favourite place to go.

We had nice time at La Zeppa. Food was good and maybe the platter a bit less value. Service could improve a little bit in terms of looking after us or cleaning the table. Atmosphere was great and will recommend for sure. Thank you

Our waitress was just lovely, I didn’t catch her name however! Lovely food and great setting- one dish was he broccoli which was delicious but only had 3 stems so a bit stingy, but otherwise we loved it all. Thanks for having us LZ! We’ll be back :)

Food was tasty. Atmosphere inside was lacking but outside was great. Carlie our server was fantastic with good recommendations and attentiveness. Value for money was excellent because we did first table booking otherwise full price I would have felt a little above average for what you get.

Great venue and service. The food however was disappointing. The selection was limited and there were some unusual combinationsof flavours. But it did not ruin the evening and our party had a great time.
