210 Symonds St, Eden Terrace, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
What you need to plan when coming to Auckland, in order of importance: 1) Book flights, 2) Reserve a table at The French Café, 3) Book accommodations. If you're serious about food, then chances are "The French Café" has already...

Excelsior Building Cnr Galway &, Commerce St, Britomart, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
Cafe Hanoi is choreographed dilapidation. Rough brick, crumbling plaster, and layers of scraped-back paint are softened with huge Noguchi globe lamps and planes of hand-oiled timber. —Nat Cheshire Galway and Commerce Streets, 64/(0)...

22 The Promenade, Takapuna, Auckland 0622, New Zealand
Takapuna locals are blessed. To have a café of this stature sitting on the doorstep of the Waitemata Harbour with views out to volcanic Rangitoto Island, is what foodie dreams are made of. A repeat winner of café awards, the Takapuna Beach Café is...

124 Oceanview Rd, Oneroa, Auckland 1081, New Zealand
A favourite with Waihekians, The Oyster Inn has already made an impression despite being relatively young. The islanders love the laid-back atmosphere, and even if you're coming from 'town' - like me - you'll be given a cheery welcome before you...
Save Place
Newbury St, Manukau, Auckland 2023, New Zealand
Saturday morning and this is the place to be to get a true slice of the Pacific. The Otara Flea Markets have rows and rows of fresh fruit, clothing, bric-a-brac and of course food, but it's the Polynesian colour and music that makes it so special....
Save Place
515 Sandringham Rd, Sandringham, Auckland 1025, New Zealand
I've loved Satya since they were in Hobson St and I made my girlfriend wear a big winter coat not knowing she was going to a hot Indian restaurant. Suffice to say the staff had a good laugh about it, and in their new locations (there are now four)...
Save Place
City Works Depot, 1/90 Wellesley St W, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
An offshoot of a popular cooking TV program of the same name, the relatively new Food Truck Garage in Auckland's CBD is a bit of a find. They say they serve "New Zealand's healthiest fast food," and who am I to argue? The truck from the program...

15-31 Wellesley St W, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
Elliot St Stables is an upmarket food court where everyone at your table can eat separately, together. Simply give your table number to whichever eatery takes your fancy - Spanish tapas, French creperies, Italian bruschetta, German sausages - and...
Save Place
150 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
"Institution" doesn’t begin to describe this eatery, where patrons are followed by TV cameras, the staff giggle and scream with laughter, the passers-by pretend not to see who’s eating there and the wine just keeps on flowing. SPQR...
Save Place
146 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
As with all good Ponsonby restaurants the first thing that hits you is the decor, followed closely by the waft of delicious food. It's the combinations of flavours that stand out here, some a little unexpected and others old familiar favourites....

90 Federal St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
The hardest thing about dining at Masu is deciding which of the three kitchens you'd like to choose from. Do what we did - some palate cleansers from the Sushi Bar in front of you, followed by a few shared plates from the Kitchen (recommendation:...

151 Queen St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
If you're looking to come to Auckland, the newest eating spot by the water is Wynyard Quarter, know to locals as North Wharf. Just across a walk bridge from the Auckland Viaduct, it also happens to be home of Auckland's seafood festival—yum!...
Save Place
86 Federal St, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
The award-winning Depot is a restaurant with a difference run by quintessential Kiwi chef and author Al Brown. Squid ink linguine, pork hock and plump fresh oysters come hand-in-hand with wine on tap, old style crockery and super friendly service....
Save Place
10 Durham St E, Auckland, 1010, New Zealand
There are now a few Renkons across Auckland, but the one I love is in Durham St East. There's nothing like ordering some chilli beef, sitting outside on a bench with a beer from MyBar next door, and waiting only minutes before your food arrives....
Save Place
136-146 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
Eight restaurants, 6 produce sellers, 5 retail stores, and 1 cooking school. When Ponsonby Central was first mooted no one really knew how successful it would become, a de facto melting pot and one place where everyone can agree on for a bite...
Save Place
1A Beachfront Lane, Browns Bay, Auckland 0630, New Zealand
Not so much a restaurant meal but more a Kiwi classic that can be picked up at any Fish 'n' Chips store across Auckland. Always wrapped in paper, often battered, sometimes lemony, every Aucklander has their favourite shop. Snapper, hapuka,...
Save Place
106 Ponsonby Rd, Grey Lynn, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
Thankfully not everywhere on Ponsonby Road will cost you an arm and a leg to eat at, and the Ponsonby Food Court can match any wallet with any menu. A real international gathering - think UN kitchen - it veers towards Asian eateries with some...
Save Place
115 Queen St, Northcote Point, Auckland 0627, New Zealand
The culinary leading light on Auckland's North Shore is the Engine Room. Winner of Metro Magazine's Best Upmarket Bistro, it's just a pleasant jaunt over the Auckland Harbour Bridge to find plates of goodness in an art deco setting. The food is...

114 Ponsonby Rd, Grey Lynn, Auckland 1011, New Zealand
Even the burgers in Ponsonby are flash. BurgerFuel, a home grown burger franchise that has expanded to six countries and is now listed on the Stock Exchange, grew from this one store in Ponsonby. With burger names like "Ring Burner", "Bastard" and...

376 Karangahape Rd, Auckland 1010, New Zealand
Coco’s is like our second living room. My staff and I come here in part because the scene and the rustic, Italian-inspired food are so good, but also because everyone is a friend. 376 Karangahape Rd., 64/(0) 9-300-7582. This appeared in the...
