The Best Restaurants in AUCKLAND

Auckland (aka the City of Sails) is famous for its beautiful beaches, enchanting islands and Polynesian culture. Situated on the North Island of New Zealand, it is the largest and most populous urban area in the country and one of the few cities in the world to have harbors on two separate major bodies of water while surrounded by hilly countryside and ranges. This unique environment allows Auckland to enjoy a wide variety of fresh produce, both from the land and the sea, and residents eagerly take advantage of it. Benefiting from the influence of flavors from further afield, primarily Europe, the U.S. and Asia, the Auckland dining scene features a diverse cultural identity that continues to evolve. Come to Auckland and be prepared for a healthy dose of seafood; from shellfish to crustaceans, snapper to calamari, the fruits of the ocean are at your fingertips and locals serve it in all its splendor. However, you would be remiss to not try some of the country’s world-class lamb and beef or enjoy a couple glasses of award-winning Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. With its breath-taking view of the ocean in front of you, there are few better places in the country to enjoy it than Auckland.
