Father’s Day Feasts In Auckland & Wellington

The way to man’s heart is always through his stomach, especially if it is your foodie father who loves feasts and fine dining.

This Father’s Day, treat your dad to a drink and delicacies at these restaurants in Auckland and Wellington.

Father’s Day is not the day to worry about getting a dad bod, so take him for ribs with a view at Viaduct’s iconic Dr. Rudi’s. Serving Manuka-smoked Saint Louis pork rack ribs, glazed in Dr Rudi’s Whiskey BBQ sauce, with mouthwatering mac n cheese, coleslaw and house-made jalapeno cornbread, it is one kg for $89, including two pints of beer and a gift.

Saint Alice is plating up succulent Guinness-braised lamb shanks with root vegetables, thick Guinness gravy and house-made soda bread with a pint of Guinness for only $39. For every dish sold, Saint Alice will donate a dollar to Big Buddy, a charity that matches boys without dads with a volunteer.

Get a Father’s Day roast lunch with all the trimmings at Morningside, or choose from the delicious a la carte menu while live and loud sport plays across the big screens.

For $35, your father can enjoy whiskey from Ireland, Scotland, America and New Zealand or a classic Sunday roast at St. Johns’, Wellington.

If your dad is a fan of the old Irish champagne, take him to the best Irish pub in the Capital as Jack Hackett’s offers a Guinness pouring experience at $25pp, which includes the self-poured pint, a Guinness glass and a certificate to take home. While you’re there, the whole family can enjoy roast, including chicken, pork, roast potatoes, seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and gravy, at $98 for a family of four.

Dirty Little Secret is offering $30 for any burger off the menu and a pint of Pals, Mac’s Gold or Mac’s Cider, and every order placed at the bar earns a chance to win a $50 food and beverage voucher in the Who’s Your Daddy game.

Traditional English pub, The Old Bailey, also serves half a pint of ribs, served with chips and slaw, plus a beer for just $39pp, while The Tote has a free kid’s meal for every main meal, pizza or burger purchased.
