Level 1, 147 Quay Street, Princes Wharf, Auckland, 1010
With a front terrace that is now thankfully a little more sheltered from the harbour winds, the least-hotelly hotel restaurant in Auckland is hard to beat on a sunny day. Shane Yardley’s seafood stew is gorgeous, packed full of clams, mussels and prawns, and the Hauraki Gulf snapper is a lovely light dish.

Union Fish Building, 116 - 118 Quay Street, Britomart, Auckland, 1010
Love sashimi? It’s hard to move past Ebisu. True art on a plate, what comes out not only looks beautiful but is as fresh as you can ask for. We love the new-style mixed sashimi, with a lovely ginger and sesame dressing and edible flowers. Their cooked seafood’s also amazing, including a wonderful miso-glazed black cod.

The Oyster Inn Waiheke
124 Ocean View Road, Auckland
The clue is in the title - this lovely bistro has already become a favourite for both locals and visitors to the island alike, and that’s mainly down to the lovely relaxed surroundings and great food. Fresh oysters are available, and you’ll find fantastic seafood dishes across all areas, including a great fish pie, and spaghetti scoglio, with clams, quid and prawns.

Depot Eatery & Oyster Bar
SKYCITY Auckland, 86 Federal Streets, Auckland, 1010
Shucks! We love Depot! And the freshly shucked oysters and clams are one of the many reasons why. How great to have a choice of WHERE your oysters come from - Russell or Marlborough today? Oh and really it would be remiss to not mention the turbot sliders - an iconic dish.
