Yes, you read this correctly. We have dined at Eleven Madison on two occasions and yes, it is rated as the worlds best restaurant but mainly for the additional frills and not only for the food. Sidart was exceptional. Truly truly a dining sensation and...More

When visiting Auckland you must walk Ponsonby Road. Great restaurants , cafes , bars and shopping. So much on offer and I think the best area of Auckland.
