Oyster & Chop
We opened Oyster&Chop – our specialty steak restaurant and oyster bar – in October 2015 on Market Square at the Customs Street West end of Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, on the site of the acclaimed New Zealand ingredients-only restaurant, The Foodstore.
Oyster&Chop is devoted to doing classic food better - food you'll love, with the best service we can provide.
With magnificent water views out over the Viaduct Harbour basin, you can enjoy an indoor or outdoor table.
We have the best oyster bar in Auckland. At any one time we have access to up to 10 varieties of oysters, freshly shucked and prepared and served in seven different ways in our bright and breezy oyster bar.
Of course, we love red meat. If you’re a devoted carnivore like us but might have a difficult time deciding what to order, let us help with our pork chop served on the bone with roasted Brussels sprouts or our 300g Angus Pure sirloin steak served with a choice of six sauces and butters.
We always have plenty of seafood choices, fresh from the market daily, including our classic beer-battered fish and chips, tuna tartare or West Coast whitebait fritter. And to finish off your meal, there’s nothing better than our bread and butter pudding or baked Alaska.
It’s pretty much a given that a good restaurant serves good food. But a great restaurant needs to do more than that. And that is our aim for every dining experience.
The best food. The best atmosphere. The best service. We aim to exceed your expectations at all times!
Our people live and breathe inspirational cooking and superior service. For our executive chef Darren Lim, and head chef Bob Lun, this means a mastery of the classics, with a twist. Good food, done better. And a consistently high standard so you’ll always want to come back.
Great food needs great wine. And our walls tell our wine story with a display of the many highlights from our list.
We know we have the basics covered so we’re always looking for our menus to have that element of surprise to them, whether that involves a dish with an unfamiliar ingredient or one cooked in a creative way.
In the end, it may be something undefinable that separates a good restaurant from a great one but we want to give you an experience that brings you back to our special restaurant every week...
