I take our dog for a walk along the esplanade in the summer. We go to La Forchette and La Vista. Very nice restaurants and the tapas at La Vista are very nice. That way you can get varied options to share.

Auckland may have a large population, but, it has a huge amount of beautiful bays and beaches, and we are so spoilt for choice. Enjoy to the full - restaurants, have a picnic, just drive and enjoy the views :)
