Damn Astrolabe Brew Bar is average. Been here twice while I've been in Mount Maunganui and had average food. I can't remember what I got the first time but I got a chicken poké bowl the second time. The food is just average pub food nothing special. Most likely will be back because i've never been disappointed. x
They have the Macs beer range on tap and this time we've found their food pretty good as well. We tried Pizza by the metre, it was delicious and big enough to feed 2-3 people. We really enjoyed it! Also tried a salad bowl, which was interesting kind of mixture of Asian flavour, and rice was soaked in the source in the bottom of the bowl. Interesting.
Dined here for breakfast yesterday and was told the food would be a 40 min wait max as it was very busy and they were unorganised and understaffed, which we agreed we could deal with. An hour passes and we ask where the food is then we are told that it was coming up next but somehow it didn’t arrive for another half an hour! None of the staff members were helpful or even seemed interested in trying to help us, even though we had been waiting an hour and a half for our food. We then received the wrong order as they’d put another table on our tab number as well. When our food was (finally) served fish was old, smelt off and mushy. All the food was also lukewarm when it came out. Drinks order was stuffed up as well and coffee was cold to top it off! Managed to get money back on the fish but not anything else although we barely touched any of it. Has to be the worst dining experience I’ve EVER had
