    The Occidental: Awesome Mussels!

    Fondly known as the Occy!

    This place used to be the place to hang out after work. It was dingy, drab and pokey. It was great!!! Then after three years away in London I came back and the place had transformed into a very smart trendy Belgium gastro pub. I was, to say the least, not impressed - that was until I got taken there for lunch. My opinion has certainly changed and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone!
    It's reasonably price - for three people who had four courses, beer, wine and coffees it came to $80 which is pretty good for central Auckland. And it's great place to hang out and watch the natives!

    Favorite Dish: The Mussel pot! WOW what a dish! NZ green lipped mussels in your choice of three or four sauces. Comes with a huge plate of hot chips and dips as well.
