Review: The Arbor

The other night we did something wild and crazy. We went out on a school night…and…we crossed Waiyaki Way. This kind of shenanigans is simply not done! But, we did it. Why? We got a voucher via some friend to The Arbor and we needed to use it before it expired. (Thank you Sarah and Andreas!)

Being old, we got there a little past 7 pm and were the only ones there. They were happy to serve us and it was kind of nice to have the place to ourselves. If you want things more lively I would suggest going around 8:30—people started to come in around the time we left. (This is much easier to do if you live south of Waiyaki Way.)

The food was good. They have a mix of fare ranging from classic pub fare appetizers, to Asian, to standard meat and potatoes (which is what I got). The food was good. The house wine was decent. The atmosphere was nice. You really can’t ask for more.

The restaurant is part of a small complex that includes a day spa, a shop, and a plant store. It all kind of works together. The area is open and airy yet feel cozy. Can I get a place like this closer to where I live, please?
