The sweetest neighbourhood wine bar with plenty of tasty food options to pair with excellent funky wines.

There is real heart to this wine bar on the Three Lamps end of Ponsonby Rd, facilitated warmly by co-owner Diva Giles, who manages the front-of-house with practised ease. It’s a small, compact space, with just a slip of a bar counter and a few tables outside, but it all works because, at Beau, you’re always welcome.

Though you could just come by for drinks, with co-owner and chef Logan Birch in the kitchen the food is fresh, fun and exactly what you want to be eating. There are only about three or so options under each category (small, large, sides, et al.), so each dish has to be a winner. The ceviche is a generous serving of raw fish in leche de tigre and avocado — unfussy, unfancy and a dream to dig right into — and the roast lamb rump is an incredibly tasty number dressed simply. If you’re snacking, the spiced almonds are a must.

Since it’s a wine bar, be assured that the by-the-glass list is more than satisfactory, with revolving pours by interesting producers filling out the menu, including now-standard natural wines and more classic options. During the warmer months, a sunny outdoor area hidden out back becomes popular for sticky summer dinners, so pop your head around or ask after it if you’re unsure.

In the Autumn 2024 issue of Metro we celebrate the best of Tāmaki Makaurau — 100 great things about life in Auckland, including our favourite florist, furniture store, cocktail, basketball court, tree, make-out spot, influencer, and psychic. The issue also includes the Metro Wine Awards, the battle over music technology company Serato, the end of The Pantograph Punch, the Billy Apple archives, a visit to Armenia, viral indie musician Lontalius, the state of fine dining, and the time we bombed West Auckland to kill a moth. Plus restaurants, movies, politics, astrology, and more.
