Swashbucklers Restaurant & Bar
Don't let the skull and crossbones fool you, this is one of Auckland's best waterfront institutions.
January 17, 2019
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.
