What a delicious hidden gem! Small and quiet place. Crepes are authentic. We were staying nearby prior to cruise. Lunch was so tasty we went back the next night for dinner.

Cute, small place; excellent food; and a very short walk from my hotel; Had the fish the first time and it was fresh and perfectly cooked; tonight I had the lamb shanks, again perfectly done. And dessert crepes twice.
Don't understand why they aren't full of customers? They could use better signage for starters.

After completing Day #1 touring Auckland (and feeling quite tired) we were wandering aimlessly close to our hotel on Queen Street, looking for a place to have dinner. The endless stream of Korean and Chinese restaurants offered up several really good looking options, but then unexpectantly, we happened upon a tiny French restaurant... Le Garde-Manger.

Given I'm writing this review, we obviously decided to give it go.

We were impressed that the entire front of the restaurant was being manager by only one gentleman. And he was in total command all the time we were there, so thumbs up to him.

Bottom-line, the service was great, the food was very good, and we're thinking we'll make a second visit before leaving Auckland.

For the sake of keeping top ratings fair, a star (dot) was deducted for the less than impressive ambiance and no air conditioning (the open front door mildly provided an air flow).

a delightful French restaurant. The beef bourguigon was delicious. The potato dish was also lovely. What a refreshing way to spend our last day in Auckland. Good food and wine
