Degree Gastrobar is a popular and vibrant bar over looking the many super yachts moored in Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour.
Our casual atmosphere enables you to come down and enjoy a few pints of beer or glasses of wine whilst watching the sun set. If you want to stay a bit longer, we provide an a la carte menu that will satisfy everyone’s needs.
Our house specialty is stonegrill dining – a unique experience where your food is served to you sizzling on a hot volcanic rock. If this doesn’t tickle your fancy we also serve delicious meals that range from pizzas to mouthwatering seafood dishes.
For private Functions, check out Degree Bar’s private mezzanine floor: “90 Degree’s Room”. Complete with its own private bar, this upstairs space is available for corporate functions, family events, birthdays, or cocktail parties.
Other areas of the restaurant & bar are also for hire, whether it be an outdoor BBQ style event, or the Front Bar for relaxed birthday drinks.

Enjoyed a couple of drinks in the sun while waiting for our meals to arrive. One of the party had pulled pork which was very tasty, another had a stonegrill which they enjoyed, despite it not being the one they had ordered. I had the seafood stonegrill which was incredibly underwhelming sadly. The prawn tails hadn’t been deveined and none of the mussels opened (I realise that this could be hard to realise when serving raw, but the suggestion from the waiter that he could get someone in the kitchen to open them with a knife was, frankly, appauling).
Overall the food would rate as one of the worst I have come across. Perhaps it was just that particular meal on that particular day. But our experience is that everything is overpriced for such small quantity and poor quality food. To leave a restaurant hungry is one thing, but to leave hungry and extremely unhappy with the quality and price is another. Not a good experience.
They certainly have a nice outside area overlooking the harbour, however it was full so we dined inside. We took a booth at the back and I wasn’t sure whether this place wanted to be a sports bar or a restaurant. The menu certainly looked interesting and varied, yet we had loud music playing along with various large screens in sight and strange strips of neon lighting.
The garlic bread we ordered for starters was certainly interesting in terms of it was some kind of grain loaf…just not very garlicky. My friend ordered a steak and asked it for it do be medium. The mains took a wee while to arrive and when the steak came, it was well done. I had to get a waitress’ attention to let her know and when we were told it would be another 20 minutes before it could be brought back out (maybe that was the chef’s problem in the first place, thinking that’s how long it takes to cook medium) then we told them not to worry. When we went to pay at the end, there was no apology or offer to amend.
We also had some comic incidents with drinks, with one waitress taking our order then another coming back with something different, then a third coming back to confirm again. I’d also ordered a glass of Waiheke Pinot Gris (normally quality), however when it was brought over got a “so who’s having the wine?” and it was unceremoniously plonked in the middle of the table sloshing around before I could answer. Turned out to be very sweet, too. My main of pork belly was tasty enough and had an interesting tamarind sauce, but I got the impression it had been left to sit in the kitchen for too long as the roast kumara underneath was soggy.
This place needs to figure out it’s identity crisis and smarten up the service, too. Certainly in no hurry to go back until Morethat happens.
The only thing that would stop me going back was the music. It was a Sunday night. Everyone in the place was sitting down and eating and the music was so loud and the base was real intense that it wasn’t quite the right atmosphere to have a great meal in. I can understand the music for when Friday and Saturday nights when people are there to party but when people are dining and chatting it was really off putting. Was a shame considering apart from the music it was a great place to eat.
I would revisit for the food but not the atmosphere. Allen
The food was great- I would definitely recommend their stone grill options, very tasty and something different to try. If your wanting good food with a great view for a reasonable price- this is definitely the place
The service is friendly and fast. Usually in and out very quickly and the staff are happy to accommodate that.
Have visited with friends from out of town who also raved about their visit and keep wanting us to take them back.
This place is one of my favourites in Auckland.
Magnificent food, service & venue.
As part of a group of 20 to 30 people, I found the service to be very friendly, professional and organised. The excellent waitress was very accomodating when we had about 8 extra people suddenly turn up.
We were seated in a separate area upstairs on a mezzanine floor where a balcony overlooks the rest of the restaurant.
I thoroughly enjoyed the smoked salmon quesadilla that I ate, beautifully flavoured with dill and sour cream. The menu was full of variety that managed to cater for everyone from vegans to meatlovers to gluten free family members. Also, when my sister’s wine took quite a long time to come, the waitress said there would be no charge (without any prompting) – now THAT’S great customer service! I highly recommend this place.
