The Verdict

We don’t know about you, but nowadays our bucket list is less to do with where to travel and more to do with where to fill our face and taking top spot is Ada—an Italian-inspired restaurant that's nestled in Auckland’s most unique boutique hotel, The Convent. 

And unique indeed—taking over the historic building that used to be a nunnery back in 1922, The Convent is now a lush 22 room, six suite hotel located on Great North Road, that is home to everything from stunning decor to tantalising Italian fare. 

Just like the Hotel, The space at Ada is equally as impressive as the original architecture has been preserved, leaving exposed brick, rustic walls and a glass-roof atrium above the dining area that’ll certainly work wonders for your gram. 

The raw beauty isn’t just presented on the walls, but the menu too, as each dish is a delicious work of art. Think melt-in-your mouth beef short rib, flavoursome pasta plates, crispy pizza fritta and a dessert that’ll leave you gasping for more.
