The Metro Top 50 Restaurants in Auckland 2015

Here's where JAFA are dinning.

The Metro Top 50 Restaurants in Auckland 2015
April 10, 2015
http://www.metromag.co.nz/food-drink...auckland-2015/


Auckland’s restaurant scene continues to simmer with the annual Metro Top 50 serving up eight newcomers and a first-timer in the 13th year of the awards.

And just to prove the awards judges recognise restaurants can make a comeback, three of Auckland’s old favourites return to the list this year.

The magazine’s Top 50 restaurants in Auckland released today are all in the running for the Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year 2015 to be announced at the Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year Awards industry awards dinner on 20 April.

Metro editor Simon Wilson says the magazine’s list highlights four big trends in Auckland dining.

“The continued rise of shared dining is in evidence at many places where ‘dishes to share’ are prominent on the menu,” Wilson says. “The communal nature of dining is being strongly reinforced, and that feels like a good thing.”

The second trend is entrepreneurship, Wilson says. While SkyCity has the highest profile for its expansion along Federal St, several of Auckland’s other leading restaurateurs are also branching out.

“Mark Wallbank and chef Che Barrington have recreated their very successful formula of smartly presented Asian-inspired food in exciting surroundings at Woodpecker Hill. Sid Sahrawat now also has the extremely cool ‘modern Indian’ restaurant Cassia, in Fort Lane. In the past few months Mark Keddell has opened both Matterhorn in Freemans Bay and The White Rabbit on Customs St near Britomart.”

Wilson says there’s a third trend he’s not so happy about: a growing gap between the best service and the rest. “Put simply, there are now many more good chefs and otherwise good restaurants that are let down by poor service. Very often, the reason an established name has lost its place on our list is the service. It’s a major challenge for the industry, which they know about, but which it is becoming very hard to overcome.”

Wilson’s fourth point is that it’s getting tough to stay on top in the suburbs.

“On our judging list of 81, we had 13 neighbourhood restaurants. But only six of them made the cut. The others are good – and our judges invariably said they were happy to eat in them – but they’re not good enough for Top 50 status. That’s because the standard in the main dining areas is now pretty high. That’s especially true when it comes to service.”

Returning favourites that failed to make the cut the previous year are Café Hanoi in Britomart, Mt Eden’s Molten and perennial Ponsonby bistro Prego.

The nine new restaurants gracing this year’s Metro Top 50 include successful restaurateur Sid Sahrawat’s new establishment Cassia and Toto offshoot Farina in Ponsonby.

Matterhorn, the Auckland sibling of the successful Wellington restaurant of the same name is also included, as are Odettes in City Works Depot and Pilkingtons in the city.

Completing the new nine are Grey Lynn’s Siostra, The White Rabbit in the former Crown pub in the city and Parnell newcomer Woodpecker Hill. Gusto at The Grand is a first time finalist after missing the cut in 2014.

There has been a range of changes to the Metro Top 50 in 2015 with seven new categories replacing retired awards and a new public voted category, the Peugeot People’s Choice Award for Auckland’s Favourite Dish.

Individual award winners will be announced at the Metro Restaurant of the Year Awards on Monday 20 April.

5. Casita Miro
Cuisines type : Spanish
http://www.aucklandnz.com/dining/med...sita-miro/6855
https://www.zomato.com/auckland/casi...ke-island/menu

Casita Miro has either won or been runner-up every year for the last three years in Metro magazine's Top 50 Restaurants "Best Rural Restaurant" category.

Casita Miro Restaurant is a boutique Vineyard restaurant on Miro Vineyard, Waiheke Island, producing Mediterranean styled cuisine.

Proprietor, Cat Vosper, won the title of 'Restaurant Personality of the Year' a couple of years back, and was runner up in the Lewisham Foundation's 'Outstanding Restaurateur' category in 2013.
~~
For your drinking enjoyment, you can indulge in wines from the Miro Vineyard, or try Cat's selection of unbelievable Spanish Sherries, a Waiheke Beer or a dose of our famous Madame Rouge.

Delicious wines are always best enjoyed when accompanied by delicious food. You can select from Casita Miro's range of small plates (tapas) and elegant wines. This is restaurant dining with the unique bonus that you may get to meet the creators, the chefs and winemakers who are each in action daily.

The views are stunning, the music is soft, and just over your shoulder is a stand of olive trees. Casita Miro also features its very own Extra Virgin Frantoio olive oil (visiting Spanish and Italian visitors report that Miro's oil is among the best olive oil they have ever tasted), plus their very own home-cured olives. They are committed to using fresh, seasonal Waiheke produce from both their kitchen garden and from producers who are locally based. This is food at it’s freshest and very best!
You'll find that dishes change with the seasons. From time to time, diners have been known to bring along their own baskets of eggplant, artichokes, figs, and feijoas, which the chef transforms into culinary taste explosions...!

Bookings highly recommended.

Address: Casita Miro Vineyard, 3 Brown Road, Onetangi
Waiheke Island Auckland

Opening hours
11:30 AM to 4 PM (Thu, Sun), 11:30 AM to 4 PM, 6 PM to 10 PM (Fri-Sat), Mon, Tue & Wed Closed

7. Cazador
Cuisines : Mediterranean
http://www.aucklandnz.com/dining/med...estaurant/1684
https://www.zomato.com/auckland/cazador-balmoral/menu

Cazador is a bistro-style restaurant that specialises in Game Food.

Head Chef Dariush Lolaiy writes a chalkboard of daily specials, alongside a changing menu of game staples, seasonal produce and vegetarian options.

Cazador is an unpretentious, cosy place with kooky decor and friendly staff. The wine list is short and considered, and there’s a selection of lesser known craft beers to enjoy alongside venison, duck, rabbit, pork, pheasant and fresh, seasonal vegetables.

With a bit of forewarning hunters can bring us their catch and we'll cook and serve it to share.

Cazador has been run by the Lolaiy family for 25 years - there's always a familiar face behind the desk, and enthusiastic waiters to help with choosing from the menu and finding drinks to match.


Where : 854 Dominion Road Balmoral Auckland

Opening hours
5 PM to 12 Midnight (Tue-Sat), Mon & Sun Closed

10. Coco's Cantina
Cuisines : Italian
http://www.aucklandnz.com/dining/med...auckland/10601
https://www.zomato.com/auckland/coco...hape-road/menu

Coco's Cantina is a bustling and colourful eatery, great for those who love the lively fun of these casual eating and drinking establishments known as 'cantinas'. Originating in Italy, cantinas are now a popular destination for social-eats & drinks, far & wide across the globe.

Whilst rustic Italian fare features, you'll also find Mediterranean influences, and one of the juiciest steaks in town!
The seasonally-changing menu is augmented by nightly specials to keep the regulars on their toes.

Enjoy a mulled wine in winter or a sangria for the summer, or compliment your socializing with a cocktail.
Most nights provide a bustling atmosphere, although you'll usually find the courtyard is more laid-back, or perhaps you'd like to chill out for a bit of people-watching on the K'Rd side.

Cocos provides 'slick, fun and no-nonsense' service to customers.

Keep in mind that Coco's isn't for everyone. Because it's a busy cantina with a happening bar, you might be required to squish up at a small table, or possibly wait longer than ideal. You could be required to change tables, do a swip-swap to the bar and back . . . but this, and the socializing while waiting, is all part and parcel of the Coco's Cantina experience!

In the style of a true Cantina, Coco's doesn't take bookings, but just bowl on down, and you'll find that even if there is a wait, and even if the tables are frequently over-flowing with people, the Coco's team will never let you go home hungry. Remember that because of our style & size, Coco's is not as suitable for larger groups.

Cocoro offers new style Japanese cuisine.
Cocoro means "the heart and soul" in Japanese, we have chosen this name because we aim at providing our food and service with all our heart and soul.

Cocoro is located on a quite side street off the busy Ponsonby Road, in an old brick building. The restaurant seats a maximum of 40 people with tables along the walls, and a large communal table in the middle.
The large communal table is designed so that couples or smaller groups sit on the same side next to each other for a more intimate experience.

Our wine list covers wines from New Zealand and other parts of the world with an emphasis on organic/biodynamic varieties.
We also have a wide range of Japanese Sake, only "Jun Mai" pure rice sake is served.

Cuisines : Tapas
http://www.aucklandnz.com/dining/new...auckland/12856
https://www.zomato.com/auckland/depo...federal-street

Depot Eatery & Oyster Bar was Supreme Winner of 2012 Metro Restaurant of the Year Awards, and also now winner of Best Casual Bistro at the 2013 Metro Awards!
Launched in 2011 by famous New Zealand chef, Al Brown - known for his award-winning Logan Brown Restaurant & Bar in Wellington, and his passionate TV presence.

Depot by Al Brown is a fast-paced, fresh venue, where you can drop in and share small plates, oysters that are shucked to order, and other perfectly cooked dishes. The focus is on the simple qualities of food, and most of which are prepared over charcoal or hard wood, with an emphasis on seasonal produce.
Our small shared plates are straightforward, tasty and fresh, served with energy and ease.

Al Brown follows his belief that the kitchen should spend its efforts on delighting the palate, rather than creating garnishes to please the eye.

Depot Eatery and Oyster Bar is part of SKYCITY's new entertainment precinct, located on Federal St.


Where : 86 Federal St SKYCITY Complex, Auckland CBD Auckland CBD Auckland

Opening hours : Mon - Sun 7am - late

13. Ebisu
Cuisines : Japanese
http://www.aucklandnz.com/dining/jap...auckland/12812
https://c.zmtcdn.com/data/menus/840/...381bb4971a.jpg

In Japan, Ebisu in the god of good food and the guardian of fisherman. Fittingly, the new Ebisu restaurant is located in Auckland's Union Fish Company Building overlooking the wharves, and promotes the best of the country's fresh seafood and produce, with dishes created by top chefs who combine both contemporary Japanese and Pacific Rim experience.

The restaurant's dual heritage is also reflected in its stripped-back design. The Union Fish Company Building, a brick and stone heritage commercial structure dating from the early 1900s, has been sensitively adapted to its new use.

The space has been divided into two parts, the interior and a 'terrace' area screened by a glass wall bordering Quay Street. This functions as an outdoor area, bringing in light and views, while remaining sheltered and off the street.

Dinner Bookings are available for groups of 8 or more at the 6:30pm sitting only.
Lunch Bookings are welcome for any number!


Where: Britomart, Union Fish Company Building, 116-118 Quay Street, Auckland CBD, Auckland
Britomart Auckland

Opening hours: 12 Noon to 3 PM, 5 PM till Late (Mon-Fri), 3 PM till Late (Sat-Sun)

Phone: 09 3005271
