This former bank vault, on one of the city's fashionable backstreets, has a cozy bar from which you can watch passersby through thin venetian blinds. Loyal diners keep coming back for food that is consistently prepared with flair using the best seasonal produce. Tables are covered in crisp white linen, and cutlery and glassware are taken seriously, too. The wine list has varieties rarely seen elsewhere, such as Waiheke's sought-after Stonyridge Larose cabernets. Great for lunch, the bistro is popular with the business crowd.
