La Zeppa is a great place to go when you want to have a few drinks and tapas (and maybe a sneaky dessert!).

I went there with a few friends last Sunday night and upon arrival, were informed that it was fully booked inside. However, this did not matter as sitting outside by the hot heaters and pretty lantern lights meant that we were pretty happy!

We ordered drinks... yummy yummy cocktails! The Passionfruit Raspberry Bramble is a must try! We also ordered the vegetarian and seafood platters... A bit of a disappointment for one of us because half the vegetarian platter was actually meat!

Overall, La Zeppa is a great venue, the food is yummy and the drinks even more delicious! Plus their outdoor setting is one of a kind - the colourful lanterns definitely give this place such a cool vibe. We'll definitely be back.

Caught up with friends at La Zeppa for some fairly late drinks and tapas mid week. It was a Wednesday but still really busy and the atmosphere was great. La Zeppa has a great, cool setting but staff are still pretty relaxed.
Drinks list is good - I had the little creatures pale ale that was really well priced. Our group of 4 shared some great tasting tapas too - didn't go over board but walked away just shy of $70 lighter for 4 drinks ( 2 beers+2 wines) and a few dishes so that was pretty reasonably I thought. Definitely recommend La Zeppa for a casual catchup.

Came in to visit La Zeppa as a friend suggested the venue last weekend. What a great place. We sat outside in the sun and orderd some plates and wines out there. We tried the risotto balls, tuna and breads - it was hard to choose dishes as there were so many that sounded good. Good reason to come back though. Definitely recommend this venue, the service was great, location was easy and central and had great views. Give this place a try for sure.

La Zeppa is my favourite bar in Auckland. Here on Friday night with the work crew. In my opinion, consistently good vibe make La Zeppa one of the best bars around. Good drinks selection and the food is pretty tasty too. Looking forward to a few more reds at La Zeppa over the coming Winter months.

My friend and I went to La Zeppa for an impromptu meal knowing we would get quick service and delicious food. As always, we weren't disappointed. Between the two of us we had the risotto balls, calamari, fries, meatballs and a yummy haloumi salad. Followed by the profiteroles and coffees - all very satisfying. All this and four glasses of good wine for just over $100 - great value.

Had a great Saturday night here for my birthday (heard it gets a bit busy on a Friday), this place has friendly, obliging staff who made wonderful cocktails, and the tapas were delicious! My only slight gripe was that they can get expensive, but really, they are worth it! Great vibe with a range of ages, and I loved the decor! I will be back!

Hadn't been to La Zeppa before and was well hidden down beside Victoria Park Market. When we entered the doors on a Thursday night it was packed but handled the crowd well with a large open plan layout.
Although I didn't have a meal, I noticed Pork belly on the chalk board that made me want to come back and test out.
Staff were good value and there never seemed to be 25 min waits to get to the bar despite the crowd!
Worth checking out.
