SOUL BAR & BISTRO

15/20

Good Food Guide - - Auckland -

Soul caters ex­pertly to the well-heeled clien­tele it seeks to at­tract. The am­bi­ence at its wa­ter­front lo­ca­tion is one of the best in Auck­land, with en­ter­tain­ment value pro­vided by a bar that at­tracts those sim­ply want­ing a drink and the op­por­tu­nity to take in the vi­brant Viaduct Har­bour ac­tiv­ity from a spa­cious deck, as well as a beau­ti­fully stylish, more for­mal in­te­rior din­ing area. The ser­vice is pro­fes­sional, ef­fi­cient and knowl­edge­able, from servers who have a long his­tory at Soul. The drinks list is ex­ten­sive, and while old favourites are re­tained on the menu, there is in­no­va­tion too, with beer-bat­tered tarak­ihi with Per­sian-style potato salad sit­ting side by side with roasted ha­puku, cray­fish ravi­oli and chick­weed, and Hawke’s Bay lamb rack with fig an­choïade.
