Take along your own

It's great to be able to take along your favourite bottle of wine to a restaurant. Not only does it ensure that you will love what you are drinking, but it also saves you a few bucks too!
Here are some of our favoutire BYO Restaurants within Auckland City who let you pop your own cork...
Thai Me Up
For authentic Thai in a lively atmosphere, visit Thai Me Up on Ponsonby Road. There's a huge selection to chose from, including great vegetarian options, and I recommend the 'Dragon's Eyes' if you are a seafood fan. A popular spot so book ahead.
One of my favourite cafes in Ponsonby, Cafe Cezanne welcomes you for breakfast, lunch and dinner and stays open late for coffee, vino and cake. It serves gorgeous European/Kiwi food, at affordable prices with an all day breakfast menu.
Da Sette Soldi
Da Sette Soldi Italian restaurant has a charming family feeling to it - almost as if you are dining in a living room. It’s cosy, warm and inviting and serves delightful Italian meals including pizza. Great for groups as well as a flirty meal for two.
Saffron Indian Restaurant
Ponsonby's Saffron Indian is a previous Best Indian Restaurant winner, and they still continue to dish out some of the best Indian in Auckland - for a very affordable price. Check out their weekend buffet lunch for something different.
If you live or work in the inner city visit Sushi Factory in Vulcan Lane. Little delightful pieces of sushi cruise the conveyor belt in front of you where you can pick and chose your own. Great for grazing, and you may even wish to take along your own little bottle of Sake!
The Bay Restaurant
The Bay Restaurant and Bar in Waiake serve enormous seafood platters and succulent steaks. With seating for around 65 people it's a great spot for a bit of a get-together.
