Right in the heart of Auckland city is an award winning restaurant that is located in Saint Patrick’s Square next to the Saint Patrick’s Cathedral. The hotel has been in operation since 2004 and has over the years risen to a fine-dining venue that trains and inspires Auckland’s best chefs.
About the Grove Restaurant
What makes the Grove Restaurant so great? Well for starters, dining at the hotel feels more like an experience than a meal, ok the meal is pretty god also 🙂 The location of the restaurant is very quiet so you enjoy unbelievable serenity combined with a warm and intimate vibe inside or outside on the sidewalk. The décor comprises of many strategically placed plants and butterfly paintings on the wall which makes it feel very organic and open.
Menu and Eats of Note
The Grove serves modern but organic New Zealand food that is prepared with a French twist. It’s a very accommodating menu that includes full vegetarian and vegan options to make sure everyone is sorted. However, what makes the food stand out is that it is comprised of in season vegetables and fruits and of course only organic meats.
The restaurant is mainly known for its personalized degustation dining where the chef prepares a 5 to 9 course meal for a customer. Since degustation simply means tasting and experiencing the fullness of the meal, the courses are small enough not to fill you up too quick while dining. Every course is accompanied with a different sip of world class wine and there is a ten minute break between each course.
For those who don’t have enough time for the fine tastings, you can opt for a fixed-price meal or A’la carte upon request if you are about 8 people.
If you would like to experience what is truly at the heart of the chef, Monday nights is for you. The chef brings out the best in his menu at only $65 which is a steal.
