Usually a full or busy restaurant indicates it's good as so many people are visiting. The same applies for Lone Star Takapuna which was very full although it was Saturday night. The food definetely lived up to expectations. There was a good variety of meat,seafood and vegetarian dishes so there was a dish for everyone on the menu. Often the... More

We were atending with a group, had confirmed reservation. Arrived on time,but they had us wait due to nothing ready or available.

We eventually decided to leave... More

15 people booked for 7pm. They somehow managed to not have a table free for an hour, despite the booking. The manager was accusatory and had a poor attitude. The manager (also on bar) was slow and seemed more interested in chatting to other staff than serving anyone. The manager gave us the wrong bill. Otherwise food was good :)

We called for a reservation for 16. They contacted us twice during the day to confirm then when we showed up on time, they stated that they were busy and would have our tables ready in half and hour. The hostess asked us to head upstairs to the bar and appetizers were on the house. An hour and 10 minutes... More

Father daughter date night. Service was good and meal was great. Tasty steaks enjoyed by both. Reasonably priced and would have no hesitation returning.

I wanted to like this place. Made a booking for 7 and arrived on time. Menus delivered quickly and then we were forgotten. Kids drinks took more than 30min to be made, and in the end they went up to the bar to wait and collect them. Food was OK, nothing special but took so long to come out even... More

Arrived and promptly shown a table. Got drinks and wine fairly quickly and then gave our order. The meal was a little while, but not a problem. Then we are told that because the kitchen is busy, they'll bring me a container for my left over food, but I'll have to do it at the table. That's fine - people... More

My husband and I have been to Lone Stars in Pukekohe, Manukau, Albany, Tauranga and Christchurch and have thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere at all of them. Sadly I have to say that this Lone Star did not measure up to any of the others we have visited in all of these categories. Service was acceptable. The young... More

This stunning vista provides a most relaxing and pleasurable experience in our upstairs bar area. ‘Hauraki’ means “Wind from the North’, but even on the outdoor deck upstairs you are well sheltered from any draughty squall or gentle zephyr. If there is a slight chill however the deck has its own fireplace to warm up your hands and feet. With luxurious booths for that seductive drink away from prying eyes, we also offer a private function spaces where you can celebrate that special occasion. A full bar service is available, as is a menu to suit your requirements be it a birthday, work function, or weekend celebration. We also have a plasma screen to view the current sporting event(s) and all you have to do is e-mail or phone us, tell us what you require and we’ll take care of the rest. You can find us by travelling through Takapuna toward Devonport on Lake Road, and now you can access Esmonde road from offramps from both the South and the North on SH1 and from the West over SH1, opening up Lone Star to all of the North Shore. Children and families, you are most welcome, and don’t forget to tell us if it’s your birthday!
