Eating Out in Auckland

Auckland has a deserved international reputation as a great place for eating out. The city brings together a wonderful fusion of European, Asian and Pacific Island influences to create a distinctive New Zealand style. And enhanced even more when combined with local New Zealand wines of which Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are the most well known.

Recommending specific restaurants can be a tricky business; ownerships change, chefs move on and standards can change very quickly. But we have a number of restaurants that have stood the test of time that we recommend with confidence to our customers. Our three favorite parts of the city for eating out are The Britomart area located downtown, the Wynyard Quarter (shown at top of this page) located on the newly redeveloped downtown waterfront area and the most well known of them all, the central city suburb of Ponsonby.
