Swashbucklers is an exciting place to wine and dine, located on the edge of the shores of the magnificent City of Sails, Westhaven Marina. Join us for lunch or dinner in the main Swashbucklers Restaurant or grab a cold ale in the Boatshed Bar.
The food is excellent, seafood is of course our speciality, but our Carribean Chicken and Blackbeards Pepper Steak are just as popular! The best seafood restaurant in Auckland but able to cater to all tastes, Swashbucklers is a ‘destination’ dining experience. Check out our menu for more details.

Your kids menu was a welcome relief from the usual boring nuggets & hotdogs, & the kids tortilla wrap was a generous portion that would be plenty for an adult meal.
Have been coming back to you over many years & will continue to do so!
Based on one other previous experience, i found the the Mussel in white wine sauce stunning, while my cajun Tuna Steak and avocado salsa absolutely delicious. On this occasion we did get overcharged with an extra set “Garlic Bread”
My experience last night was not as pleasant, some dishes were good. Some mediocre.
Got the Seafood Platter, everything was steamed/boiled in coconut , it was enjoyed, the only thing was, Prawns was not as fresh to serve the Restaurant’s Repetoire. fish was fresh.
Got the Scampi, the size of these were smaller than the Prawns on the menu? Not worth it, flavor wise : its VERY HARD to go wrong with garlic butter.
Oysters: Delicious ! Fresh .
Mussels : Average. Moderate quality.
Got the Tuna Steak (medium rare was requested): Steak was cut into two and one piece verged on well done, while the other was medium rare. Came in a much spicier Thai sweet chili sauce than my previous encounter, but with less Avocado Salsa. did not enjoyed this meal at all. Tuna was fresh though.
Sides : Salad( Cereal bowl size) Garlic Bread (dry and bland)
So while the restaurant had excellent ambiance, and lovely staff, there are also inconsistency on the same dish. Most of the dishes rely too heavily on shelf-sauce like mayonnaise and sweet chili sauce, Not much ‘creative’ thought went into the dishes, though not to say all of them are bad. Expect long waiting times between your entree and mains even with no other customers are there.
Thoroughly enjoyed our first time dining experience & would highly recommend.
Big serves for the famished.
Excellent parking and location.
Definitely recommend this place, it’s awesome.
Excellent service from staff and the nice atmosphere in the restaurant.
All in all a good night out and would go back again.
Food was a disappointment. Panfried snapper was o.k. Breaded scallops arrived dried out and hard with very little flavour (similar to what you would expect from a mediocre fish and chip shop) whitebait fritter was more scrambled egg than anything else – lucky if there was a teaspoon of whitebait between the 3 fritters. Chips were mediocre. Lucky we knew meals did not come with salad or veges because staff did not inform us of this.
Sad to see a great seafood restaurant going downhill fast.
