Beautiful French cuisine served at Pastis brings Paris to the heart of Auckland. Pastis is the perfect place for a business lunch where, in a busy atmosphere just like in St Germain, you can enjoy steak frite, salade nicoise or a savoury galette. Dinner is more elaborate but realistically priced, with dishes such as seafood vol au vent or traditional cassoulet, and the wine list is a real tour de France as well as including a stage in New Zealand.
Every Friday evening is Pastis time to enjoy ‘un ricard tomate’ (pastis cocktail), a Chablis or a Bordeaux, listening to the lively piano accordion player.

Its at the top end, price wise. I think the food is down at least a notch below that. Canard was great the first time we went. Boef second time was OK- but if it cost $48 + it should be better. Point being, you’re paying for superb, not OK. Service is good- but it should be. Desserts are uninspired, and we passed them up second time. I might not go again, as not being sure its going to be faultless is a worry with this price bracket. Sure, they’re all French staff, which feels ‘authentic’ , but same with Le Garde-Manger, which actually has bistro, rather than restaurant prices.
On Saturday 10Th December my twin brother and I celebrated our birthday at Pastis .A total of 16 people attended
The service was faultless. They served 48 meals (3 courses each for 16 people) all at the same time each time. Nobody had to wait .Well done .Excellent service.
One of the things that immediately felt heart warming was several of the people serving were indeed French and it felt like a Parisian bistro, whilst rainy and cold outside, warm and welcoming inside…
We opted for the bar food, a terrine de campagne with cornichons, pommes frittes ( or fries to you and I ) with aioli, all were perfect except the aioli could have been a little softer to dip the fries into, flavour though was wonderfully garlicy.
Auckland would be so much less without unique interesting places like Pastis. “A bientot”
The Food – is 5 Stars! The French wine is Divine! The place has such Charm, that you find yourself talking to your neighboring tables I’ve not had
that much Deliciousness in a long time! Thank YOU – Pastis!
We were too full for dessert but have vowed to go back again.
This the real authentic thing – the waiters are all French, and many of our fellow diners were speaking in French too. (So I guess you know it’s got to be good if the nationals go!) You have absolutely got to have the onion soup . . . The chicken & mushroom galette wasn’t a favourite with me. . . however, I think that was my own personal taste preference, as other people dining with me had that dish and absolutely raved about it!
There is also a cool little bar – what a great place to pop into for an atmospheric, relaxed drink.
