Nestled amid the stunning olive grove of the Simunovich Olive Estate, Bracu Restaurant offers elegant and contemporary fine dining in a truly exceptional setting. Experience the exquisite dishes prepared by talented Head Chef Mikey Newlands with seasonal offerings from the Estate's own gardens and passionate local producers while you relax on the all-weather verandah or inside the magnificently restyled Kauri villa.

Just 35 minutes from central Auckland, with breathtaking views across the vast olive grove and the rolling pastures of the Bombay Hills, Bracu is Auckland's finest country restaurant.

We had the degustation meal here on Sat 1 March, 2014. The food was very good and although one of the courses was not to my taste, my husband loved every course. The service was very good and the ambience was lovely. The starters and nibbles here are excellent and added to the meal. The highlight with the degustation was the duck breast with blackberries. Superb. We also enjoyed the passionfruit souffle, which is something neither of us would order, so it was a nice surprise to enjoy the dessert so much. A good place for a special occasion - away from crowds in Auckland.

We wanted a Restaurant to give a special treat to a great friend who planned our wedding. Bracu was recommnded. The atmosphere is awesome. The Waitress was exceptional. The presentation of the food was fantastic. If you want large helpings, cheap meals, and Steaks, do not go to Bracu. If you want a peaceful meal, not rushed, to have a special treat then Bracu is the place to go. The complimentary gift to the Ladies was unexpected, but very kind and appreciated

This is clearly a well-run establishment, with some serious money having gone into setting it up. Situated in an operating olive plantation, which makes for a lovely scene from the table and on arrival. Our only complaint would be the somewhat overbearing service (a French / Euro gentleman springs to mind in particular). If he dialled down the pretentiousness, he would make a great waiter. The estate oil bottle that comes with the bread is a nice touch, as is the selection of estate bathroom products available to sample in the bathroom. The food is good – on a par with the price more or less – and there are some creative choices available at times, but there’s a certain something missing from this place to elevate it from just good to great.
One gripe – when we visited, the olive oil on sale at the counter could only be purchased in small bottles, with no discount for purchasing a larger, “bulk” tin (the larger tins were available, but are priced at a multiple of the bottles for equivalent volume, so there’s no incentive to be “environmentally” friendly and buy less packaging). This was disappointing.
