About The Garden Shed
For a slice of serenity in chaotic Mount Eden, slip into The Garden Shed for a moment of countryside bliss. It’s impossible to frown when you’re surrounded by a scene straight out of Peter Rabbit. The menu is all hand-made and in-house, for a winning combination of elegant food, great service, and stunning garden scenery.
Great food and great service. Would go back again 😊
Awesome attentive service and lovely food.
Delicious food and great service
Rustic, creative, cozy ambiance. A lovely place to sit and enjoy your meal. Attentive and friendly staff. We will be back.
We enjoyed our dinner! We had the salmon, chicken and steak meals and it was very tasty and full of flavor! Lovely service as well! Highly recommend!
We had a great evening - the ambience is great and we could have a great conversation amongst our table of 5 diners.
We enjoyed our dinner yesterday. Everything was awesome, we love the mulled wine! Service wise was ok, it must be quite busy I guess. Not very attentive, we have to ask for attention to order, to have a glass for water and refill water.
Another lovely dining experience at The Garden Shed. You can't go past the platters, not only do they taste amazing they are a real treat for the eyes. Thanks again.
Great staff super helpful and friendly
Our service was awesome that we received, however the entrees lacked flavour. Our mains were a good size, but the flavour combinations weren’t quite right and nothing really shined on the plate. The mains were fairly average for how expensive they are.
One of my favourite cafes in Auckland, always have a good experience and great food here.
Top class food, drinks and service
I have thoroughly enjoyed a few luncheons at the Garden Shed in recent years and have no reservation in recommending this cafe for its food, service and delightful ambiance.
Great service, excellent drinks selection and flavoursome food. Overall good value for money.
Responsive staff, area was not too loud so can easily talk with guests, food was as expected.
Loved the garden shed and am already planning on coming back
Very happy with quality of food, service and atmosphere. All 15 food items arrived same time.
Really enjoyable evening
Lovely spot for a Garden Design Society of NZ Events Committee meeting, thank you. Not noisy, we could talk without having to shout. Central location, great parking, perfect atmosphere, staff were friendly and drink selection was great. We will be making this our ‘local Meeting spot’. I look forward to returning with friends and family for a meal.
I was grateful to the server for letting me know the meal I thought was gluten free would have traces of gluten, as I am coeliac. It is always welcome to go somewhere you don't have to grill the serving staff on how things are cooked. Any further work you can do to reduce the risk of cross-contamination in your fryers would be fantastic, so I can eat more of your menu!
Friendly staff, great service and best of all - wonderful food!
Stepping into The Garden Shed was utterly delightful ... from the wrong brassiere I had walked into mere moments before. The decor was on par with the name of the establishment & blended into throughout. I was warmly welcomed by the bartender who immediately ushered me to my reserved table and after consulting me over the beverage selection, took my order for the most popular lager, they had on tap. Once my date arrived & we had scanned over the menu, we decided on the fries & chicken tenders for our starters and then pulled crispy pork for our main. Our waitress was so friendly/helpful explaining how everything was done. What was popular & also her personal favourite. But what really impressed me was how another waitress working other tables, was also regularly checking on us throughout our meal, to see how we were going, if we needed anything else etc. The staff looked after the welfare of the customers and also appreciated serving us. What a treat in itself! Dessert was delicious, but you know what ... you are going to have to step into this restaurant & explore/experience this all yourselves. You will be extremely pleased to bring your friends along to causally meet up/hang out or dine in at this hip but laid back oasis. 9/10 and a pleasure to tip $ the staff who provided exceptional service.
Had a wee problem with one of our entree’s one was delivered but the other one was forgotten it wasn’t ordered at all!!! In the end it really didn’t matter as the other entree was enough for both of us just had to make sure it wasn’t on the bill. Staff were very nice and friendly and out the back was lovely with all the plants!!
