About The Lula Inn

Kia Ora! Welcome to The Lula Inn a Sth.Pacific Eatery & Drinkery.

You’ll find us where the sea meets the shore, sat on the historic Princes Wharf in downtown Auckland, New Zealand. Down here on the edge of the ocean, in our miles-away-hideaway the food is fresh, local & made with love.

The folks are friendly & _the good times just keep-on-keeping-on.

So settle in & while-away some island time. Enjoy the ebb & flow of craft beers, gin cheers, eats, treats & chats. And then, as the sun sets & darkness falls, when it all gets a bit louder, a lot livelier & much dancier — stay on & stay late.

Had an absolute blast. The team were amazing and gave us everything we asked for. They event let us theme the place up for our private function. Absolutely our best event ever. The food was superb as well. Thanks so much to Georgina, Ross and the team.

Food was great, staff was great and we had a really really good time, we just found the music a tad too loud and even more so once the live band started

Very unfriendly staff, except for one guy - no smiles, no passion or enthusiasm - didn't seem like they like their jobs.

Great atmosphere! Lovely service! Only downsides was hair in one of our meals, which we were compensated for with a replacement meal and sometimes it was a little hard to flag down a staff member for drinks refills. Other than that we had a great time and we will be back!

We had a fantastic afternoon. Food was fabulous, the only feedback was that the drink service was a little slow - but that may have been a good thing for us the next day :-)

Great food, great service, fantastic view. However I would say the for brunch, the music was way too loud. It was more like what you’d expect in a bar on a Friday night, so it was difficult to have a conversation.

Booked in to kickstart a Hens Night for a close friend - we were probably the quietest table that was there, and the most well behaved. However, a male staff member outright said "we'd appreciate if your group would stop knocking back your drinks" - the female server was really nice though. Suddenly, our server changed to what looked like the manager. We then got told that we had to leave at 1pm, however our food hadn't arrived and it was 1230pm, so we had to scoff down our food as the male server was being very rude. There were much rowdier crowds around us who were obviously tipsy/drunk - it was so upsetting that we couldn't have the same experience as they did even though we all paid the same. P.s. we were the only islander/brown people there...just sayin...

We booked a table for 12, the table we were seated at was too small for this size party. Better suited to a size of 10. Food was great & drinks good too - great value for money.

Sorry but the music really is way too loud early in the evening in the dining area. Feel sorry for your chefs - they’re trying to produce interesting food but am sure the caliber of diners you attract with that loud music means it’s jot really appreciated. Tried you for Restaurant Month but won’t be back.

So pleased with the service I received, the staff were all attentive and helpful without being overbearing, they were all very relaxed but professional, which put our party at ease. The food was gorgeous, the decor and music were fantastic, and those bottomless drinks are no joke! Our glasses were literally never empty. Amazing experience, very much looking forward to coming back again soon.

What an amazing start to the day and incredible way to Celebrate our Girlfriends Birthday - Also managed to have Lula Guests erupt in a joint 'Happy Birthday Song' - Highlight for our group, our amazing service with Croydon! He was just amazing & made our brunch that much more epic! Thank you for your service - We most certainly will be back because of him!
