Climbing up the white marble stairs off Shortland Street to explore Pilkingtons, it’s clear that something exceptional awaits you.

Within a Mediterranean style courtyard you will find a unique garden oasis – a utopia of calm, elegance and sophistication in the midst of Auckland’s urban jungle. 

The look of Pilkingtons comes from the brilliance of Nat Cheshire's group of architects. The interior features rich and lusciously polished wooden booths surrounded by fresh flowers. 

Large golden lamps illuminate the interior of Pilkingtons and add whimsy and flair to the colourful, botanical theme.

With outstanding food available all day, Pilkingtons suits those needing somewhere upmarket but casual for that early breakfast meeting, business lunch or memorable date night. 


An extensive beverage and cocktail menu ensures those after work drinkers are kept happy too.

If you're looking for a special venue for your wedding, Pilkington's have got you covered too.

$55 for a two course dinner & lunch + a glass of wine

Includes cauliflower Caesar salad to start with mandarin crisps, brazil nut & a sesame tofu dressing, and market fish with coconut, parsnip, shiitake, green pea, mint, & smoked maple butter for the main. Matched with a glass of Huia Gewurztraminer 2017, Marlborough
