The best places to eat in port in Auckland while on a cruise

In October 2013, Auckland, New Zealand, was named by Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 Cities in the world to visit in 2014. The travel guide company cited the destination’s “foodie scene that rivals the best cities in the world” as a major reason why any curious traveler should consider making a trip.

If you take a cruise vacation through the South Pacific, you may be fortunate to spend a day or two in Auckland. Be sure to check out some of the following restaurants:

Happy Traveler Comment
Having been on many cruises we thought we'd experienced it all until we discovered What a difference! Our first cruise they surprised us with a fabulous upgrade to a spacious veranda suite. Then they found us the perfect Alaska cruise within our budget. It couldn't have been easier! Wow! you are awesome! Try'll like them! — Dave and Priscilla B.

La Cigale

If you love French food, you’ll find a home here, as La Cigale stocks everything imaginable — from wine and cheese to tinned snails — in its cafe. Three nights a week, the space is converted into a communal restaurant where dishes like lamb shanks bourguignon and braised peppered venison are served.

You’ve probably never experienced Thai food in the way that it’s presented at MooChowChow. Chef Che Barrington took his inspiration from the street food found in Bangkok, but added his own Kiwi twist. After trying dishes like fried snapper with wild ginger or jasmine-soaked salmon, you may never want to leave!

Takapuna Beach Cafe

This breakfast and lunch establishment stays buzzing from open to close. While you eat dishes like Moroccan eggs and Berkshire pork, you can look out at the gorgeous beach located just steps away. If you want a sweet snack, be sure to grab one of Takapuna’s award-winning ice cream cones.
