An Auckland fine dining institution, serving exquisitely-presented and luxurious food in a traditional, elegant interior. Impeccable service and glorious wine list.
Number 5 is tucked away in a quiet street not far from the Langham Hotel, and is a popular destination for the great and good, whenever they're in town. Past diners include Sean Connery, Burt Bacharach and former New Zealand prime minister, Helen Clark. As soon as you walk inside here, you're struck by the French-inspired design, from grand, gilted mirrors and marble fireplaces, to the bistro-style tables and shelves full of wine bottles.
The a la carte menu offers an engaging selection of starters and mains, with particular standouts including the Langoustine Tortellini and Roasted Rack of Canterbury Lamb. There is also a Degustation Menu, with optional matching wines, and is recommended for group dining, as there's always something to talk about!
The restaurant houses an extensive wine cellar, concentrating on boutique New Zealand labels, with a few Australian and French vintages thrown in. The champagne comes only from France, as the proper stuff does, and the three premium ports are a great way to finish any meal.
