About Number 5

Number 5 Restaurant is an elegant dining restaurant in central Auckland city.

We are famous for our passion of New Zealand food and our huge selection of boutique New Zealand wines.

It is the perfect place for visitors to Auckland to come and experience dining at its best.

As well as our fantastic food and comprehensive winelist, we pride ourselves on our exceptional service. Past guests have included the Rt. Hon. Helen Clark, Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, Burt Bacharach and Sir Sean Connery.

If you find yourself dreaming of a white Christmas, but always have your desires foiled by a little thing called the Southern Hemisphere, then Number 5 has something that might help to make your wishes come true.

Number 5’s management team pride themselves on sourcing only the most superior, locally grown foods and complementing the main ingredients with trimmings that enhance rather than alter the taste of the dish.

You can rest assured that the meal that arrives on the plate in front of you is world class, flavoursome and always delicious.

Thank you once again Number 5 for such a special night on Saturday night. Number 5 has become our restaurant of choice for our family.And it seems that it will be an ongoing tradition for us.

Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for finding the perfect seating arrangement and place for us in such a lovely setting.

The food is as excellent as the ambience and service. We have now been coming to your restaurant for meaning years, recently celebrating my 70th upstairs with the fire and candles and our

It is fine dining at its best.
