  • Waterfront Café

    4 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Open 7 days, 8.00am till late. Breakfast Lunch and Dinner. Most people head for the Viaduct Basin and it's array of eateries. However it is rather expensive there, albeit nice and modern. I have known a while now about this place. Just a few steps from the Basin, and I think the best kept secret, is Waterfront Café. The food is superb, the service...

    The Loaded Hog is a large pub/restaurant located on the waterfront at Prince's Wharf in downtown Auckland. It offers a big outdoor seating area (facing the wharf), a cavernous interior and an upstairs seating area with a balcony overlooking the wharf.

  • Blankenberge Belgian Beer Cafe

    There a number of Belgian Beer Cafes around Auckland but this one is situated near the beach in Hurstmere Road in Takapuna. Hours. Mon-Fri 11.30am-late, Sat 10am-late, Sun 9am-late. Nt to be missed, my perennial favourite is moules (mussels) frites and mayonnaise. Consumed with a beer - what could be better

  • Manuka Restaurant

    4 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    We ate at the Manuka restaurant on our first evening in New Zealand, and we were very glad to have some fresh vegetables after 2 days spent eating in airports and airplanes! We went for a classic Greek salad and some fresh fruits which is not what you usually eat to test a restaurant, so my opinion is not a complete one. I can say that the...

  • Mission Bay Fisheries

    Auckland Restaurants

    Mission Bay Fisheries is a small fish and chips shop and fast food joint opposite the beach at Mission Bay. I ate here one lunchtime in April 2006 having made the 7km walk from central Auckland in the morning before making the return walk later in the afternoon. I didn't feel so guilty eating fish and chips amid all that walking! There are a...

  • Little Turkish Cafe

    Auckland Restaurants

    Little Turkish Cafe is, as its name suggests, a small Turkish cafe located on Karangahape Road in Auckland city centre. It is a no-frills establishment and is popular both with locals and with backpackers on a tight budget. I ate here twice during my stay in Auckland, and on both occasions it was very busy. The cafe has a handful of tables inside...

  • Starbucks Coffee

    4 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    I don’t plan to include every Starbucks Café on my pages, but every now and then a special one is worth a mention. This Starbucks is situated in the popular Parnell Village shops. Not too far from central Auckland, easy to get to. Parnell is on the LINK bus route, so that makes things easy. I just like sitting on the outdoor tables, watching the...

  • Oh Calcutta

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    You'd think with a name like Oh Calcutta this place might not be that good however you would be completely wrong. The setting on Parnell Rise is really good with a few outside seats kept warm, if it's on the chilly side, by some heaters on the ceiling. The service was quick and the food really good. A good selection of beer was on the menu & my...

  • Orbit Restaurant

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Orbit is a very classy restaurant. It is right below the top floor of Sky Tower. The restaurant rotates while you eat. It sounds like a cool idea but was actually making my wife and I feel sick. (they can set the movement to various speeds) The food was pretty good and a bit on the pricey side. You also get free admission to the Sky Tower...

  • Iguacu Restaurant and Bar

    4 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Iguacu is a nice restaurant and bar in trendy Parnell, one of Aucklands more fashionable areas. The restaurant is quite big, with an outside dining area at the front. We stuck with the bar, which was very indoor/outdoor all at the same time, and very relaxed. Ordering a couple of bar meals to go with our drinks, we expected a bowl of wedges and a...

  • Euro Bar

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Auckland Restaurants

    Euro is usually the first place on my list of things to do when returning to Auckland, which isn't often enough. The food and service is consistently excellent, plus the wine list is great (try the 13 pinot noir if they have any left). Lots of places have come and gone since I lived there 8 years ago, but Euro is still the shiznit.

  • Thai Friends Restaurant, Parnell...

    Auckland Restaurants

    We discovered this lovely restaurant in 1995 and have been back there several times since then, and I always refer to it as the best Thai restaurant I have ever been to. The quality of the food has not deteriorated over the years, and I can say that as I always order a similar main dish LOL My absolute favourite had always been a fish/seafood curry...

  • Portside Bar & Brasserie

    Auckland Restaurants

    Portside was a breath of fresh air. We had driven around the city and other popular eating areas only to find the place overcrowded and too busy for us to get a meal. Stumbled across Portside, to find everything we needed and wanted. Parked right outside the restaurant. Wonderful view over the Viaduct Basin and some nice yachts! Amazingly friendly...

  • Pasta Italia

    Auckland Restaurants

    This is a very cute little place, set among a residential area not so far from Parnell Village. The atmosphere is fun and friendly as you sit among some of the more "successful" members of the community. There just seemed to be an excessive amount of continental cars parked outside. The salads are interesting and delicious, all very fresh and...

    Auckland Restaurants

    Nice sunny outdoor dining area as well as indoor dining. Spacious and nice ambience. Great place to dine if you are planning to do some shopping in Parnell.

  • Antoines

    Auckland Restaurants

    Whenever we all want to go out for fine dining or to celebrate something, Antoine's is the place. It is quaint, very upscale with the most delicious cuisine. My husband's parents also are friends with the owners and they always do their best to give us their best. Everything is great, honestly. The Bluff oysters are superb

  • Jacques

    Auckland Restaurants

    The cafe is in Waitemata Harbour, so it's the location and the view that make it special, but the service and the atmosphere were great, too. I only had a coffee and a pavlova, so the pavlova must be my favourite :-) (it was indeed yummy.... and the coffee was nice, too). They have a proper lunch and dinner menu though.

  • Limon Café & Bar

    The ambience was a winner all round here at Limon! Inside, the indoor tables and the bar, is very tastefully decorated with interesting "stuff". Outdoors, sitting in the sun on the wharf was just so very enjoyable. Plenty to watch while you enjoy your meal and chat with friends. I really enjoyed the Weekend Special Menu. Eggs Benedict, with...

    This place is a real gem!! Extremely well priced within anyone's budget, and good wholesome food with excellent Vittoria coffee. I really was excited to find this little place.

    Rocket Kitchen provided contemporary takeaway cuisine. Ranging from pre-cooked gourment meals, to birthday/wedding cakes. They sell a selection of gourmet ingredients and preserves/condiments.

    Parnell is a great place for brunch, especially on a sunny morning. Needless to say, I indulged in my favourite dish, French Toast. Strawberry Alarm Clock do that wonderfully and as I have eaten a lot of these particular bfasts, I feel adequately qualified to comment. And I love cafés that keep brunch going for a decent part of the day. Oh and...

    Auckland Restaurants

    This place used to be the place to hang out after work. It was dingy, drab and pokey. It was great!!! Then after three years away in London I came back and the place had transformed into a very smart trendy Belgium gastro pub. I was, to say the least, not impressed - that was until I got taken there for lunch. My opinion has certainly changed and I...

    This little gem of a restaurant is a must visit if you are into Japanese food.

    I knew this place had to be good as I constantly see people crowded around the front door trying to get in. It took 3 attempts for me to finally eat there as everytime I went they were full. A regular stop for us, we constantly take friends here and overseas guests. Although the place is no classy joint and it reminds you of a typical Asian cafe,...

  • Good food at good prices.

    Al Camino restaurant is situated in the northern satellite town of Whangaparaoa, about 40 minutes drive from the city centre (outside rush hour). The restaurant is small and popular, so it would pay to book on weekends. Greek food is the specialty, but the dishes are generally a fusion of eastern mediterranean food. Anything!
