“Amanos bakery is my pick for fresh sourdough and French pastries. The restaurant has a great vibe, and consistently good Italian food. They only take bookings for half the restaurant tables so you can take your chance on the day. Get in early though, it’s worth it!”

It's not for everyone, some people like a bit more grit but SPQR is a favourite.... you'll understand why as soon as you enter, it's a bit fancy but in an Auckland way... put your Gucci sneakers on ladies and put the Clicquot on ice and keep it coming”
