Welcome to Augustus Bistro under the new ownership of Nick and Robyn Jones and our talented chef, Logan Coath.

Our mission at Augustus is to seek out and showcase the best ingredients New Zealand has to offer and prepare them in ways that let them shine. The menu changes regularly to accommodate new exciting discoveries and to reflect the very best of the season. Chef Logan Coath and his team can't wait to take you on a delicious New Zealand food journey. 

Built in 1912, our historic building was once the Ponsonby Post Office. Boasting many of the original details, the space has been contemporised with luxurious indoor plants and indulgent fabrics that make any visit to the restaurant feel like a special occasion. On sunny days and starry nights, the restaurant spills out into a private courtyard adorned with exotic flora and a roaring fire, making it the best spot in town for drinks, lunch and dinner. 

We look forward to welcoming you at our place.
