A true destination restaurant only a short drive from the city, but a world away from the bustle. Chef Mikey Newlands and the team return to Taste with a super refreshing taste of the country. 

Nestled amid the stunning olive grove of the Simunovich Olive Estate, Bracu Restaurant offers elegant and contemporary fine dining in a truly exceptional setting. Experience the exquisite dishes prepared by talented Head Chef Mikey Newlands with seasonal offerings from the Estate's own gardens and passionate local producers while you relax on the all-weather verandah or inside the magnificently restyled Kauri villa.

Just 35 minutes from central Auckland, with breathtaking views across the vast olive grove and the rolling pastures of the Bombay Hills, Bracu is Auckland's finest country restaurant.

Our hot tip? The Smoked Beef Cheeks.
