Folly’s is your local neighbourhood bar and bistro on the North Shore to enjoy all day and all eve. Get cosy and settle in for a session, order up a feast, discover new wines, delight in old favourites or simply drop in for a swirl on your way home. Bar service at the front, table service at the back.

Walk-ins welcome. Reservations recommended.



Quick snacks to a four-course feast, our menu is a fine choice for a casual midweek bite through to your next date night or special occasion. Fresh produce and interesting ingredients combine with modern cooking techniques thanks to our three Michelin star-trained head chef, Antonio “Ace” Espiritu. Groups of 8+ dine on our set menu.


A mix of local beers on tap, a short, sharp list of considered seasonal cocktails, and a dynamic wine list celebrating Australian labels alongside old world producers from France and Italy, means no one goes home disappointed.

Party time? Make it a day or night to remember in our private dining room. Tucked away at the back of the bistro and filled with natural light, this space caters for events of up to 30 guests seated or standing.

Just because we’re not a pub, doesn’t mean we can’t do the best Sunday Roast north of the bridge.

Champagne breakfast, chilled reds, cold beers, and good cheer. Isn’t that what the festive season is really all about?
