Our Story

At Mortar & Pestle, our philosophy is simple: treat guests like family, serve great food and always exceed expectations.
That philosophy , when Vinnie and Gagan opened Mortar & Pestle in New Zealand. From day one, Vinnie and Gagan shared their commitment to quality and a generosity of spirit with every guest who walked through their doors.
What began as a restaurant became a second home to a vibrant cast of artists and writers, tycoons and civic leaders, screen stars and working families. And so it continues today…a place to not only enjoy a spectacular meal but also catch up with old friends, meet new ones, close business deals and celebrate family milestones.

“My birthday party was better and even more “delicious” than I had hoped. Your staff made everyone feel at home as soon as they walked in the door. I can’t thank you enough for allowing us to use the restaurant instead of having the party at my home. It was a memorable occasion for all of us. ”

“We cannot thank you and the team for all your hard work! The night was just perfect and we received lots of complements on the food! All of your staff and especially Vinnie and Gagan could not be more accommodating! They allowed the night to run smoothly and every detail that was asked for was completed! ”
