Called in for some Tapas on a Sunday and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and tastiness of the food. Excellent duck spring rolls and potato and leek croquets whilst the chicken parmigiana strips were just divine. Really tasty, freshly cooked tapas and friendly service as well as great value for money - what more can you possibly want? Clearly... More

The vibe at this little bar is great and the team always go that extra bit to make you feel very welcome and comfortable. The food is incredible, with Mushroom and Truffle Gnocchi, that are like little pillows of love, to their insane chocolate mousse! They even carry my favourite type of Gin! Thanks Bin12 for the awesome service and... More

Had an amazing time at bin with my girlfriend. First time customer but good was delicious and cane out quick, tapas style. Had an old fashioned and was surprised by the selection of whiskeys, runs and bourbons as well as the bar tenders knowledge of twists on this classic. All round amazing night. Great service, friendly staff can't recommend enough.

We had a party of four and only offered one round of drinks in 1.5hrs. Water not filled up and one of my friends burnt her hand on a hot oyster shell which wasn't explained it would be so hot. She had her hand in a glass of ice for the entire meal and not once was asked if she... More

Had a great night here recently for a catch up dinner with out of town friend. Food was fantastic! Started with tasty olive plate followed by Miso Eggplant & Gnocchi with Mushroooms & truffle cream sauce. The food especially the Gnocchi dish was perfectly cooked with no overbearing flavours. Instead of dessert we opted for Expresso Martinis - great choice!... More

It may not have incredible views like Rick Shores, but Bin 12 makes up for it with better "everything else". The gents behind the bar are truly talented and caring about their craft - you'll not get better cocktails. In particular, we've had Martini's all over the world and the Martini's at Bin 12 (whichever type you want) are simply... More

Went there last night with two friends. We ordered the following tapas: chicken popcorn spicy, beef, olives, prawn filled zucchini flowers. We also had several cocktails. The food was amazing, the cocktails were good. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed at times – they forgot orders yet apologized genuinely friendly, miscalculated the bill and hand out a NZ$ instead of... More
