Astrolabe is definitely my favourite bar in the Mount . . . a little retro, with an awesome beer garden, great drinks menu and delicious food! The perfect place to enjoy the sunshine and kick back with good food and cider.
If you are in NZ and have not already done so, text 'summer' to 393 and you will receive a text voucher for two free Isaacs ciders (your choice of apple, pear or berry), to redeem at Astrolabe (or your nearest Macs Brewbar). The voucher will be valid through to the end of April- how handy. Mine obviously did not last that long!
I shared one of the Macs Platters- the 'Double Dipper'. They say this should feed 2 to 3 as an entree . . . two of us had this for lunch and for that there was too much food, never a bad thing! A delicious assortment of nibbles and dips, I especially enjoyed the perfectly cooked squid and blue cheese and peanut wontons.
Hanging out at Astrolabe kind of feels like you are at a friends house or bach!
Without a doubt the highlight of my weekend.
