Fodor's Review

In a charming old Victorian-style villa on a quiet inner-city street, Nero consistently wins regional restaurant awards and has received New Zealand's prestigious Beef and Lamb Excellence Award. Head chef and owner Scott Kennedy describes the cuisine as "contemporary New Zealand, along with a touch of fusion to celebrate our cultural diversity." Thus the menu features garlic pizza bread and flat Turkish bread starters as well as Asian-flavored lunch dishes, such as crispy duck leg curry and Thai beef salad. Options like locally farmed beef fillet with smoked mushrooms and potato-leek rösti or phyllo-wrapped chicken breast with pumpkin risotto entice diners at dinner.
