Classic and modern @ Augustus

Augustus Bistro encompasses a modern take on French cuisine with a vibrant wine and cocktail menu within a chic, fine dining environment.

Daily special s run ranging from fresh, seasonal oysters to the plat du jour. Beginning the week with Scallop Saint Jacques and concluding it with our slow-cooked Sunday roast; traditional but with a little French flare.

The menu itself is tailored to suit all, even for those maybe not too familiar with French cuisine, and those maybe not to keen on eating a snail. This allows Augustus to cater for both a full dining experience, or a much more relaxed light lunch.

The food at Augustus is the heart and soul. However, not limited to being a one trick pony. A bar this beautiful would be wasted without an outstanding drink selection to accompany it.

The wine list is predominately French with a smaller selection of New Zealand wines. For anyone maybe not familiar with French wine the highly trained team is available to offer guidance through the wine list, and an opportunity to try something new.

The cocktail list shadows the food in a sense, offering traditional drinks with classic French ingredients such as Chartreuse and Suze, but also Augustus’s take on modern cocktails such as The Pornstar Martini, aptly renamed ‘Clara Morgane’. A daily Happy Hour runs between 4pm and 6pm boasting French wine, house beer and a selection of cocktails.

The venue is flexible, it caters to private events, with options available to hire the whole restaurant or as a semi-private area. Large parties, weddings and corporate events are just few of the many ways in which to utilise Augustus Bistro.
