How to elevate your dining experience

Make the most of your dining experience

In the search for Auckland's best restaurant, which will be awarded the prestigious title of Metro Peugeot Restaurant of the Year 2018 on April 30, one of Metro's judges shares her tips on how to have a great time while eating out. 

Finding the city’s best restaurants is a rigorous process and involves our judges anonymously eating many, many meals over a period of three months followed by fierce debate across several meetings.

We consider the merits of more than 100 restaurants each year and with the number of restaurants in the city increasing at an exponential rate in the past 12 months, competition is tough. 

Our latest Peugeot journey took us to Casita Miro on Waikehe Island for lunch amongst the vines. Over locally grown olives and wine, our judge shared some fail-proof rules for a great dining experience.
