Comments

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.

Delicious nouvelle cuisine in a beautiful restaurant set in a fine olive estate. You could easily feel that you’re in a choice locale of French countryside. Lovers - you have a real beaut awaiting you! The drive adds to the build-up and then leads you to excellently fresh oysters, a rare Tuna rendition that hits all the delightful notes, and a little sphere that superbly blends pheasant with chestnut. Service is politely passable. Lamb here becomes more pleasurable when mixed with the character of those “wild grains”, rendered tubers ,a textbook red sauce and a flick of date puree. Finisher - gorgeously baked passionfruit souffle - the top rising like powdered cloud and its body seguing into warm molten goodness. At $85 for 7 courses per person, Chef Mikey Newland’s Bracu is outstanding value for money. 3.5 stars out of 5 ( a unique Kiwi-French experience) Photos - http://www.upnworld.com/restaurant/view/id/49/title/Bracu%2C+Bombay

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.
