    Great staff! Lovely to sit under the heated lamps on the back terrace, drinking Rioja and watching the sunset.

    小吃不错很适合喝一杯红酒, 服务也很好,都非常愿意聊天态度很棒。鸡尾酒也很不错, 有些是店里自己调的,和其他酒吧相比, 别具一番风格。

    Cute little tapas bar - very accomodating on a busy night found us some tables out back and out the heaters on. Great food that came our fast - good variety. Plenty of drinks to choose from - lovely wines! Fairly reasonably priced had a beaut time here would return.

    We have been here a couple of times when visiting Auckland and will definitely be back when we are next in Auckland. This is only a relatively small bar towards the city end of the busy Ponsonby precinct. Decor is pleasant and creates the right atmosphere for a small tapas bar. Tables are small and generally only big enough for two people but this adds to the atmosmosphere when there are more of you around the table sharing plates. The food is very good and reasonably priced. On the occasions we have been there some plates have been delivered to the table by the chef who is happy to stop and have a chat. The staff were friendly and welcoming and their service excellent. As an example; we were seated at a table by the end of the bar and both bar staff regularly came to our end for a chat when not serving and when we ordered drinks rather than placing them on the bar they walked them to our table.

    We were staying in Ponsonby for a week and Bonitas was recommended to us by friends who eat there regularly. We understand why. The decor is spanish in style with small tables and the atmosphere friendly but subdued. You can have a conversation here. The staff were very friendly and helpful and as it was a quiet night the chef was in the bar area and more than willing to have a chat. The food is tapas & shared plates. The flavours are authentic and serves of a reasonable size making it good value. We will be back in Ponsonby later in the year and will definitely be returning to Bonitas

    Food fantastic. Tables not big enough to put all the food on though. A small gem. Friendly staff. Meat platter awesome. Churros amazing.

    Met up with a couple of friends for a few drinks and some food. Fantastic food and excellent service complimented by good wines. The menu is relatively small, but done very well. They had a small selection of sherries, which went down well with the food and I even got a sherry "on the house" as the bartender felt he had under-poured my first drink. It was a quiet little place where you could actually hear what the person across the table was saying. My only criticism (and it's really my picky nature) is that they didn't have any dishes featuring chorizo, which I would have expected at a Spanish place. But I would definitely be returning to this

    Popped in last night for a drink while waiting for our table at Frenchies. Bonita is a very cool little bar. Excellent wine list, friendly service. We didnt eat but the tapas menu look varied and interesting. We will try it again.

    I love this place. It's a really cute little bar with Spanish/Hispanic decor and proper, traditional tapas menu. Friendly staff, good music, great beer and wine list, and a nice, intimate atmosphere. Definitely my favourite spot in Ponsonby.

    If you're looking to meet friends in Pnsonby with competing with the crowds or noisy bars and bands, this is the place. It's also really good for a light meal if you're not keen on the huge portions at your typical restaurant (or huge price) Bonita is affordable but better than that, it's good food and wine in a nice environment
