The Fainting Goat

Restaurants / Central

The Fainting Goat is the everyman or woman’s gastrobar, just a bit more refined than your typical corner pub. We offer a stellar wine list, New Zealand’s favorite crafts and international brands on tap, a killer cocktail menu and a revolving line-up of spirits from the notables to the up and coming craft distillers.

The Goat’s menu is designed for sharing, with a focus on local produce.  Everything is made from scratch by our team, meaning you get to enjoy handmade, fresh and honest food featuring small shared plates, gourmet pizzas sold by the foot and our infamous platters including the Goat’s Tribe.  Our menu features slow-cooked New Zealand prime cuts with vegetarian, gluten free and vegan options also available. 
Open 7 days a week from 11am until late, our chilled out and friendly team look forward to meeting you.
