Lovely wee French restaurant in the heart of Auckland. We had the La Fermiere bacon and savoyarde and they were both excellent, every bit as good as dining out in Lyon or Chamonix. We followed up with two Crème Brûlée which were very good as well.
Highly recommended.

The food in this charming restaurant is superb. Not a huge range, but everything that we have tried has been delicious. Well priced food and wine

Great to have something different, the crepes were delicious! We had crepes for both main, and dessert, accompanied by cider as recommended. I was full from the main, my husband had the dessert too 🙂. We would definitely come back

Delicious gallette la Dijonaise, accompanied by an excellent glass of viognier. Nice creme brulee for dessert. Service good despite being very busy

I often frequent Le Garde-Manger as part of my work jaunts into New Zealand.
This quaint little piece of Paris is positioned at the top end of Queen St away from the hustle and bustle you often see down near the warf.

The establishment is only small with 10-12 tables offering quaint experience without the noise often seen in larger competitors.

Although a small footprint there is enough room to enjoy another’s company without feeling like you are crammed in with a group of strangers.

Service is exquisite with a single waiter easily able to service tables keeping them full of both food and more importantly drinks.

Le Garde-Manger has an amazing array of authentic French wines which is complimented with traditional French fare.

Todays order contained a medium cooked rump steak followed by my favourite thrill. A flaming crepe Suzette.
As usual the food as well of the experience was nothing short of exceptional.

Highly recommend
