The neighborhood

The Prospect of Howick is the place to be seen in Howick Village, an icon that is very well known locally and has had generations through its doors. It has recently been redesigned into the vibrant and welcoming Good Home Howick, creating a relaxed homely atmosphere where diners can enjoy a long leisurely lunch or evening meal in a number of dining areas throughout the Restaurant and Bar areas. We have the classic “Den Area”, the “Library” for those wanting a quiet nook to get together or the “Private Dining Room” for up to six diners which is a very popular table for families. There is a seamless flow out to the sun-drenched leafy courtyard which is ideal for after-work socialising and to take in the village atmosphere that Howick offers. The cuisine is modern New Zealand with some dishes offering the classics and of course good old home cooked meals, with regular changes to the menu with seasonal produce.

Our Sports Bar Bosuns has TAB facilities, gaming room, big screen TV’s for sport, Quiz Nights, Live Music and  more.

Howick Village offers many eateries, retail shops, boutique shops and some incredible walks.  Several local beaches within walking distance and others a 10 minute drive away.  Close access to  Half Moon Bay Ferry service which takes you into Auckland City.

Your host and current Proprietor Barry O’Shaughnessy has had a long association with The Prospect.
