Swashbucklers Restaurant & Bar
Don't let the skull and crossbones fool you, this is one of Auckland's best waterfront institutions.
Seafood destination Swashbucklers is the ideal spot to sit back with a Pirate's Platter and catch some afternoon rays. Situated right on the water along Westhaven Marina since 1997, the venue affectionately known as Swashies, is consistently one of Auckland's best waterfront institutions — don't let the skull and crossbones fool you, Swashies legacy is well deserved.
Boasting one of the best views in town — watch boats bob in their moorings from the sun-drenched deck with a chilled handle of beer (which doesn't cost an arm…or a wooden leg). Laid-back and filled with sunshine, it's definitely a sailor's life for me. The family-friendly restaurant serves some of the freshest fish in Auckland, complimented by fine steaks and other non-seafood favourites. On the drinks menu you'll find NZ wine and a balanced list of international options.
Every day of the year, the venue offers Pacific rock oysters for $14 for the half dozen and $24 for a full dozen. Mix it up between fresh and fried.
