Heading to Auckland, New Zealand but want to know where to find some of the best places to eat?

Here are five eateries in Auckland where you can eat like a king.

Kazuya (pictured) Kazuya is one-of-a-kind, offering European cuisine with Japanese influence. Chefs use low temperature to roast meat over several hours, while fish is prepared using traditional Japanese methods. The restaurant is famous for its evening degustation menus. Here, you can pick up a main for $35, or add on another $10 to bring it up to three courses.

The French Café The French Café was born out of a partnership between Simon Wright and his wife, Creghan. Their menu is “driven by the seasons” while passion for providing an outstanding meal is what drives the chefs to produce the finest food. This gorgeous café on Symonds St, Aucland consistently wins awards and ranks among the best restaurants, according to international and domestic food experts.

Vinnies by Geoff Scott Geoff Scott uses a unique combination of French cooking techniques along with indigenous and classic Kiwi flavours to create ‘Haute Kiwi’ cuisine for diners. Native timbers, raw steel, spot lit tables and ever-changing local artwork decorate the restaurant. Its delicious menu changes regularly, but one of the drawcards for locals and visitors alike is the restaurant’s extensive selection of whiskeys available at the back bar.

Jervois Steakhouse For one of the best steaks in New Zealand, meat-lovers should head to Jervois Steakhouse in Ponsonby. Staff have described it as “the steakhouse to end all arguments”. This premium steak restaurant uses fresh local cuts, with the menu specifying the meat’s breed and feed.

Bracu Described as “Auckland’s finest country restaurant” with great food and sweeping views of the Bombay Hills countryside, Bracu is located just 40 minutes from central Auckland. Set on the Simunovich Olive Estate, chefs grow food in the estate’s gardens and serve up scrumptious Mediterranean style food on the restaurant’s beautiful veranda.
