Top restaurant recommendations from locals

Bar
“Fantastic local bar within Auckland's largest shopping mall, Sylvia Park. Garrison Public House feature gourmet pizza's (my all time favourite, 'The Aucklander' (if you enjoy cashew nuts, that is!). They often have live music on Sunday afternoons, who doesn't enjoy a lazy sunday filled with food, a couple drinks and live music? They also have plenty of TV's scattered around the indoors and outdoor section, which you can watch live sports events that maybe happening.”

Burger Joint
$
“This is a small takeaway place that is an absolute hidden Jewel! Tucked and hidden away down a little residential side street, but yet they have created a BIG name for themselves! Jase & Michelle (owners & operators) have won awards for their fantastic handmade gourmet burgers (which feature a special burger on a weekly basis) have been rated the best burger joint in Auckland on Tripadvisor....a must to check out while you are in the area! Be mindful, if you phone to make a pre order around dinner time, you could be waiting from anywhere between 30 - 60 minutes ... that is just how popular they are! Walk in would be advisable.”

Cafe
“If you love North African / Mediterranean food, this is a must try! With fantastic indoor / outdoor decor to delectable food morsels, you will be in heaven. My recommendation - the Tagine lamb shanks! If you time it right, Monday nights are their 'Tagine Nights', where there tagines are only $20... so that means no need to cook!!”

“You can use a Grab One voucher for 2 lava chocolate cakes + a scoop of vanilla ice cream. On arrival, the older lady is very welcoming and helped us to introduce everything to us. Nice service.”

Restaurant
“The food is absolutely delicious and the portion size is not what you would expect - great sizes for value of money! During our lunch hour, we can order and be served within 15 minutes, eaten & then paid before the hour is up! Dinner time takes slightly longer - maybe 20 minutes for the order to arrive, which is still great timing for a VERY popular restaurant. Advisable to pre-phone to make a table booking, but not absolutely necessary. BYO alcohol is also allowed, with a small corkage fee.”
