Fodor's Expert Review Gannets

$$$ Russell French

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

German chefs Fabian and René combine classic French cuisine with local flavors. You might find prawns on mashed kūmara, flavored with lime, and served with roast peppers and mesclun greens in a mustard vinaigrette. Seafood is prevalent—try the tuna on red-and-white jasmine rice or vegetable-filled cannelloni drizzled with tamarillo sauce. Homemade vodka infusions include a lemongrass version that is particularly refreshing at an outdoor table on a balmy evening.
