About The Culpeper

So this is exactly what you think of when you think of The Culpeper. It’s light and bright until night and then it’s bright and light until later.

It’s about relaxing; hanging with a bunch of friends or the good crew from the office. It’s ‘grab some lunch’ but with a hazy plan about what’s on this afternoon; it’s a cocktail or two after five and a totally easy dinner kind of thing.

We’re right on the water’s edge so you know it’s going to be ‘at ease’. Our owner thinks we’re here to celebrate food, fun and friends; we think we’re here for a good time (and a long time)…

Remember every good time is made up of moments. At The Culpeper, making the most of the moment is up to you.

Had an amazing experience celebrating my 30th birthday with a group of 30 friends for dinner. We were well looked after by staff, food and drinks were amazing and atmosphere was great. Would definitely go again.

Crispy fried chicken wings were great. Half chicken was red and undercooked. Sent back. Came out the same. Waiter advised that's how the chicken just comes out because the restaurant deals with so much fresh chicken. It looks red because it's so fresh. I've worked in a meat and poultry plant before and cooked fresh chicken for testing...I have never seen this. I will also double check this with our Chef Trainers at work - it might be my mistake but I took a picture and will find out for myself. Fish dish was great

Superb thank you .. service, atmosphere and food was fantastic. Definitely recommend to friends and family. The $25 2 course lunch special was great value, generous proportions and so tasty ... love Culpeper and we are proud to call it our local when we bring others.... yesterday it was work colleagues but often friends visiting Auckland are our guests. The passion fruit gins are particularly delish too 😊

Excellent night. Won competition on Facebook for burgers for me and three friends. Burgers were delicious especially the Chicken burger without jalapenos. Had a Gluten free guest with me and they provided gluten free bun. My guest even forgot to mention that and they came back to check who needed it or if they were not dininh with us. Cruly fires yummy, kids meals great size. Cheeseburger was prefect size and that mac n cheese was off the hook. Will be back again.

Very pleasant meal. Great mains. Desserts were a mixed bag - great pies but fatty oily donuts.

We went in for the $25 lunch deal as part of Auckland restaurant month. Our waiter provided the best service I have ever experienced in Auckland. He was a tall Italian guy, Extremely friendly and intuitive. The food was excellent and the wait times were not long despite the crowd. Lunch took about an hour or so from booking time to finishing our meal Culpeper has not let me down in my experience yet. I will definitely be coming back for more.

Hi there, the food was really good and the service was great. However, I won't be coming back as I was extremely disappointed with the cakage charge. I had called up after booking to confirm that it was okay to bring a cake however, was told yes it's fine and that there was no charge. This is extremely misleading when at the end of the night the bill has $25 cakage fee. If I was told upfront this would have been okay but it's super misleading. I won't be back and I'm sure my colleagues won't be either.

We had the $25 menu of an entree and gurnard for main. The food was very average and the portion of fish very small. The main menu may be great and perhaps the $25 menu is doing a disservice to this. We had some friends from Queenstown and they also found their food very average. A pity because the services was good and the atmosphere fine.

Our group of 5 all thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Culpepper - the food was superb and great atmosphere. The waitress mucked up a couple of things with our drink order but she was very friendly and apologetic. Will definitely be back!

Fantastic food and service, couldn't fault it. Sitting next to the fire in those comfy chairs, I didnt want to leave. Theres a great selection on the menu the hard part is deciding what to have. I will have to go back as they didnt have key lime pie that day and thats my fav.
