Tel: 64 9 480 9502's insider take:

This bustling, casual bistro just across the Harbour Bridge from Auckland's city center became a favorite just after it opened in February 2006. Chef-owners Natalia Schamroth and Carl Koppenhagen have created a menu that's unpretentious and rustic, with dishes like char-grilled steak brushed with butter and served with shoestring fries; pillowy goat-cheese tarts; and orecchiette with pork-and-fennel sausage. There would be howls of despair if they ever removed their churros with chocolate from the dessert menu. The bright, modest-size Art Deco room, inside a former post office, fills fast.

Dinner only. Closed Sundays and Mondays.
