About The Cav
The Cav is a Ponsonby institution for everything from an upmarket lunch and dinner venue, through to a great place to meet for a couple of relaxing beers or a glass of wine or two.
Our talented kitchen, recently overhauled by Eugene Hamilton from Euro, offers an extensive menu featuring succulent, modern cuisine based on good value for money.
The restaurant offers unrivaled cuisine, a brunch venue where families can feel comfortable on weekends; and for those who like to party, The Cav evolves at night into a premier venue with great music and a vibrant atmosphere.
Your new home away from home and a perfect venue to enjoy legendary kiwi hospitality.
We were disappointed in the meals. The noise, accentuatd by the loud music, made table conversation extremely difficult.
This is a good place to have delicious food and good beer 😎. Relaxed atmosphere and very courteous service.
The team did well considering how rammed it was for the RWC!
Was a great venue, very relaxed - staff were awesome
Thanks so much to Aoife and the team for accommodating my large booking for Saturday night to watch the rugby! Atmosphere was awesome and the service was great :)
Awesome service and atmosphere
Wonderful food, great service and great atmosphere
Overall food very tasty though a bit overpriced. Service excellent, friendly and accommodating.
Great for birthdays, the Sunday roast is amazing!!
Our waitress/hostess was most attentive to us, which goes along way when you are in a big group. She had the right personality & efficiency to suit your style of restaurant & bar atmosphere. Thank you, this is the 2nd time we have had a group booking with you and both times have been exceptional. I came back for the curry... yum ! Well done :-)Karen
The staff were very good & i liked the new menu
Great spot, Great food and relaxing atmosphere.
Great food and location close to where we work.
Excellent venue. I would recommend this place to everyone. Thankyou for going the extra mile to turn the TV off for us too. We appreciated that!
Great place to watch the ABs, very friendly and accommodating staff. Yum food and good selection of craft beers. A bit pricey but to be expected in Ponsonby.
Great spot! Highly recommend.
Excellent atmosphere, very modern gastro pub with great beer and food choices
Great service from staff
Booked here for a birthday, and everything was exceptional. Service being offered at our table constantly without needing to go to the bar, drinks flowing, music great, atmosphere amazing, warm and inviting. Considering we went at a very busy time with the rugby playing, had an awesome time!! Danced the night away. Highly recommend.
Quiz night was fun and the food delicious.
Great atmosphere, service was outstanding! Staff work extremely hard. Had dinner there and the food was a bit average. I had the chicken tacos and the chicken was a bit dry. Couldn't fault anything else!
Exceptional staff nothing was a bother. Made celebrating my Mums & twin sister’s 80th easily. Will recommend Thank you Karen
