Cooke’s Restaurant & Bar is a tribute to the famed eatery of the same name which first occupied the Windsor House, built in 1928, now the Hotel Grand Windsor, a boutique property celebrated around the world for its stunning design, exceptional service and of course its incredible dining.
We welcome you to relax in the opulent art deco ambience as you enjoy carefully crafted dishes and drinks with a strong focus on unsurpassed quality produce with an emphasis on incorporating natural, free-range and organic ingredients.
Award-winning Executive Group Chef Jinu Abraham and his team are continually innovating and experimenting in the kitchen to create dishes that transform hotel restaurant dining, even putting a modern twist on well-known favourites from the original Cooke’s restaurant.
From the bountiful oceans that surround Auckland city to local growers and artisans, our dining experience is curated to be perfect for any occasion, from a casual meal with delectable tapas to our signature High Tea and even an extra-special occasion.
Perch at the bar or sink into a velvet couch while you browse our thoughtfully curated beverage list including organic local wines, craft beers, premium spirits and non-alcoholic drinks. It’s the ideal spot to relax before dining with us or to simply catch up with friends.
With an ode to the building’s past, formerly home to a soda fountain & ice cream parlour, try our signature cocktail, Luscious Dainty, or enjoy a light tapas snack.
