Located in the old Iguacu building in Parnell, Gerome is bringing the flavours of Greece to Auckland. Oozing Hollywood cocktail bar vibes with teal velvet furnishings, brass fittings and dark woods, this is one of Auckland's most beautiful restaurants. The Greek-inspired menu is equally beautiful with an abundance of offerings from the sea to the land. While the seasonal menu changes regularly, expect dishes such as harissa-rubbed lamb ribs, tender chicken thigh and seared kefalogravier (Greek cheese). Save room for dessert because the loukoumades (Greece's take on the doughnut) are out of this world!
