Soul is in the heart of Auckland's Viaduct Harbour. It is a hugely popular bar and bistro with views out across the water that take in America's Cup boats, super yachts, water taxis and even fishing boats. Its elegant all-weather terrace faces west to catch the spectacular sunsets, and is enjoyed by the many business people, tourist and local diners who enjoy the distinctive location and the fresh, stylish food.
The bistro prides itself on its use of the finest, freshest local ingredients and, as may be expected from its location, Soul has an emphasis on seafood. Whether you're looking for a delicious restaurant meal or meeting friends for a drink, Soul Bar & Bistro is the ideal location. You'll find us in the heart of Auckland's Viaduct Harbour. Take in the sights and sounds overlooking the sparkling water from our large deck, informal bar or all weather dining area.
Enjoy the superb fresh New Zealand cuisine with an emphasis on seafood and our excellent friendly service. Last year international 'foodies' Conde Naste were so impressed with Soul, they voted us one of their TOP 50 new restaurants in the world.
We have a private room available for hire that can accommodate up to 26 people comfortably. It's perfect for that special occasion dinner or conference. Talk to us about hosting your next cocktail party at Soul. We can accommodate up to 100 people and also provide an exclusive deck area, weather permitting of course.
Soul can take care of all the arrangements for you including: hireage of conference equipment (overhead projectors, etc) and creation of special menus to suit your requirements.
