Great bar! I do love a bar with a beer menu! There is a massive choice of Mainly Belgian beers but others are available. We tried to get a table upstairs on the outside balcony but it was too busy. We sat downstairs and enjoyed a couple of beers while soaking up the ambience. It really felt like a Belgian... More

This used to be one of my regulars but hadn't been for a while. It appears to have changed hands and gone down hill. We waited 20mins to get our drink order taken, then had to hunt down a waiter to get our food order in. Food was average. Overall this was value for money but they will need to... More

De Fountaine happens to be a Belgian Bistro that I popped in when I was visiting Auckland’s beach at Mission Bay. I came with my family to have food one afternoon, and was recommended Triple Karmeliet, a very very subtle and mild Belgian Beer. I like it, considering I have never drank any beer at all. Well, it was such... More

We stopped during a tour of the Auckland area and had a drink here on the balcony with a great view over the beach area. Staff were friendly and efficient but the drinks were pricy.

Thanks very much for your review. We are glad that you had an enjoyable time at De Fontein. All our beer is genuine Belgian beer imported from Europe but the cost of importing this premium beer does mean that prices are slightly higher. However we hope that the taste and quality made it worthwhile. Kind regards General Manager More

It's a perfect place to sit by the beach side on a sunny day. The staff is kind and friendly. Especially the manager Vijay Chauhan is really cool with his customer centric attitude and service. Fish of the day and mussels are highly recommended.

Description
De Fontein is located in the heart of Mission Bay, just 8 minutes drive from Auckland's CBD, and is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, especially from the sun drenched balcony overlooking the bay. We proudly serve authentic Belgian cuisine complimented by an extensive selection of fine Belgian beers & some of the best wines from NZ and Australia. We recommend you try our signature steaming mussel pots, or our famous mussel platters.
