Great area to walk around and find good food easy to walk to and always some entertainment. Watching the boats going in and out is a great way to pass the time.

Great lunch with a friend at Giraffe on Aucklands Viaduct Harbour. Beautiful sunny day and lots of yachts moored at Viaduct. Also two large cruise ships in town with passengers exploring the Viaduct precincts. Service and meal at Giraffe was superb.
