Finalist, Best all-day Restaurant


It’s by the Parnell Rose Gardens, geddit? In fact, as we’ve mentioned before, we suspect it is the secret pleasure of many Aucklanders to breakfast at Rosie, stroll in the gardens and then along Tamaki Drive (biking’s good!) and get back to Rosie in time for lunch. After that, of course, you can simply do the same thing in the other direction, wandering through the Domain to Mt Eden and back.

The food? Mike de Vries is a chef committed to brilliantly tasty bistro dish with many original flourishes, and we love it. We also love the place itself — as Parnell deserves, it’s the very epitome of casual modernist elegance.

A favourite dish: Lamb, eggplant, quinoa, labneh, table grape vinaigrette (pictured).
