our story

A Goldfinch is symbolic of joy, enthusiasm, positivity, and persistence.

Here at The Goldfinch we strongly believe that living life in harmony with nature, and having work-life balance is a key to prosperity and an abundance of joy. Our owners wanted to create a place where our guests can escape their everyday worries and celebrate life with their friends and families.

Our menu is a celebration of colours and flavours around East Asia, designed to be shared and enjoyed in a circle of family and loved ones. Our wine list gathers some of the most recognised and sustainable wine growers, telling a story of each New Zealand wine region. Our cocktails are a mixture of timeless classics and showcase our bartender’s creativity to pick and choose some of the finest brands and freshest ingredients.
