Enjoy a taste of Auckland City

Home to a melting pot of cultures from around the world, Auckland’s vibrant food and wine scene serves up something for every taste.


Following an edgy makeover, Britomart is one of the stars of Auckland’s dining scene. The superb food from this eclectic collection of hip cafés, bars and restaurants is complemented by funky new fitouts, from a revamped industrial garage to minimalist modern spaces. Keep it casual with artisan French pastries and great coffee, or indulge in contemporary Vietnamese, Japanese, Mexican, fresh seafood, or something sweet at the specialty dessert restaurant.

The precinct’s first restaurants on North Wharf are now joined by new establishments on Jellicoe Street, offering American Southern soul food, traditional Thai, a craft beer bar and restaurant and many more dining choices.
