Welcome to The Birdcage, an historic Auckland icon and now a stylish, fully-licensed casual restaurant, open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. The 127-year-old Birdcage has been restored to her former glory, with the interior featuring stained glass windows and original brick walls alongside more modern touches which create a chic, metropolitan vibe.

Outside, the north-facing courtyard bar is one of the largest beer gardens in central Auckland overlooking Victoria Park and the market. Kick back and relax with a selection of interesting wines or beers and delicious bar snacks or a full meal. The food is rustic in style and the menu continues to evolve to reflect what's in season. Every product we use is carefully sourced and the wine list aims to entice you to try something new and interesting.

We are proud to offer casual pub fare with a modern international influence. Our dedicated chefs bring a world of experience to the Birdcage kitchen, serving up a melting pot of gastronomic delights, with creative menus that focus on using the best local, seasonal ingredients. Whether it's a quick working lunch or a family get-together or a catch up with mates, our menu suits all (even the little ones)! We also offer fantastic vegetarian, vegan, dairy and gluten-free options.


With a tantalising array of drinks from all around the world, here at the Birdcage we pride ourselves on listing only products we love from mostly small producers. Everything on our drinks list has been carefully selected, from the finest local craft brews to hand-made wines that are crafted with passion and joy. We are not contracted or funded by a brewery so we are free to choose offerings that we love, made by hard-working, honest people that we love too. Our wine list aims to please, and whether it be a juicy Central Otago pinot noir or an exotic French Bordeaux, we love to challenge your taste buds!


For an affordable function with no hidden costs, the Birdcage will exceed your expectations with our professional execution and exceptional service. Whether it's for a company function or a social gathering, we can accommodate cocktail parties for up to 300 people or set menu lunches/dinners for up to 80 people. We will organise the planning, menus, drinks, and the even the clean up. Leave the hassle to us!
