My friends and I were first time diners over this side of the country. We were welcomed by friendly staff and ushered to our reserved table. We shared an elephant platter between the 4 of us, but didn't quite finish it. The platter was what I expected, yum. The atmosphere was very inviting and relaxing after a long days work. Service was excellent. Cheers to The Elephant Wrestler staff for making our first time experience a good one.

Every Suburb needs a local pub and this place has defiently nailed it we have been here on several occassions and always found the place really welcoming
We were last here on Saturday to watch the rugby the place was really busy but we still managed to get a seat in front of the big screen we ordered drinks and food at the table and found the service to be really great and friendly
If your in Takapuna and want a drink at a friendly local make sure you check this place out

No doubt, The Elephant Wrestler is easily Takapuna's best bar with some good times to be had. It does attract a younger crowd than some of the other bars around but that's all good.
Their quiz nights are pretty popular too (Tuesdays). See you there!

Food was good but when we ordered a Salmon salad, a fish salad was delivered to the table.

The waitress has no clue what it was so went back to ask. Apparently they did not have salmon so it was just substituted with something else without bothering to ask.

Thanks so much for your review, we appreciate you taking the time to leave feedback.We’re really sorry about your experience here and hope that you'll accept our apologies for your meal: we're currently experiencing a few teething issues with our new menu that was launched in the last few days. Both our kitchen and wait staff are working really hard to learn it all and get things right, however we agree that we should have notified you regarding the menu substitute. I’m glad that despite this hiccup you enjoyed the food and hope you still had a great night out with us!We’d love to have you back: if you could email me (events@elephantwrestler.co.nz) I'd be happy to arrange this.Warm regards,Ellie MillerSales & Events Coordinator - Report

If I'm heading out in Takapuna I'm heading to the Wrestler - a simple decision and a top shelf establishment. Paul & the Crew have created a beast!

Awesome food (generous portions), always a good crowd in here with a good vibe; no trouble. The waitstaff are great craic and you can't beat the courtyard on a sunny day! Huge range of drinks, even my notoriously fussy brother was impressed. Will keep going back for sure.
