On a sunny day, sitting outside with a view of the glittering harbour and a glass of wine in your hand, there’s nowhere better to be than Euro. Service is key here – waiters wear white shirts and ties, and their knowledge of both the menu and the wine list will invariably be impeccable. It’s professional and courteous, and nicely paced. The menu does a good job of showcasing produce from Auckland and New Zealand – it’s the kind of place an out-of-towner could go and feel they’ve enjoyed a distinctly local experience. The food is simple, and executed well – recently, we had clams with squid-ink spaghetti, which we would happily eat again, and some really good bread with a dreamy whipped brown butter. It’s ideal late, long lunch kind of food.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
