The food experts behind Metro magazine have compiled their annual list of Auckland's top restaurants, out of over a hundred contenders.
Food Editor Alice Harbourne, as well as magazine Editor Susannah Walker, spent months deliberating over the top fifty, who won their place for a combination of service, quality, atmosphere, design and character.
“We examine every aspect of the dining experience, from the host’s welcome, to the temperature of the food, to the waiter in the back of the restaurant quietly polishing glasses: taken together these elements, among many others, tell us a great deal about a restaurant,” says head judge Alice Harbourne.
“Each year, we approach the judging process with fresh eyes. Selection in a previous year is no guarantee of a place on this year’s list – every restaurant is considered on its merits and performance at the time.”
