Auckland Bar and Bistro

Auckland's Brasseries & Bistros are sophisticated, welcoming and relaxing. Soft candlelight, rustic wooden furniture and eclectic music, you could be anywhere from Paris or Venice, to New York and Havana. Let the mood seduce you.

Brasseries & Bistros in Auckland are found mainly in the CBD. The roads around Queen Street, Victoria Street and Symonds Street, have lots of friendly places. At night, and at weekends, these transform into stylish and mature brasseries that are great for late-night dates or a pre-movie bite to eat. Ponsonby and Parnell both have some achingly hip bistros, that are magnets for A-listers. For romance, head to SkyCity, where many a proposal has been made in one of the many modern brasseries here. Eden Terrace/Mount Eden is a good out-of-town destination for a lazy dinner, while the cluster of eateries around the top of Victoria Road, Devonport, is great for strolling around if you're on the look out for a casual 'drop-in'. If you're staying in the North Shore and want to stay local, investigate the cluster of eateries around Dairy Flat Highway in Albany Heights - an up and coming area for good quality dining.
