We take reservations for lunch and up until 6pm for dinner, these tables have an 1.5 hour dining time. In the evening we only reserve large groups of 8 or more. Please call or email for large bookings.
Lunch bookings taken, Evening bookings limited, Walk-ins ALWAYS welcome.
Baduzzi is open all day from 11:30am. We take all reservations for lunch but reservations are limited in the evening for 8 people or more. People often ask us why.
At lunchtime, our restaurant is mostly a business/corporate meeting destination. Most people come to meet friends or business contacts and need to know that they can have lunch at a specific time.
In the evening, it’s playtime. We want to bring some Mediterranean zing to the streets of Auckland. Things are a lot more relaxed, we turn the music up and the lights down and to preserve the essential informality of the BADUZZI experience, we only take limited bookings. You simply turn up and we sit you down on arrival if we have a table available. If there is a wait you can either have a drink at our bar or somewhere else and we will call you when the table is ready.
For special occasions that you MUST have a booking you could try our other restaurant The Grove which takes confirmed bookings for all occasions. Please book at thegroverestaurant.co.nz or phone 09 368 4129.
