Restaurant Review: Bracu

4.0 Cuisine 14 October 2018

This elegant old villa sits serenely in an olive grove on the Simunovich Estate, just 40 minutes south of Auckland in the Bombays. Whether you are seated in the gracious arched interior, or bag a table on the generous white-wicker clad veranda, take time to enjoy the old-time charm of this lovely, refined homestead. The menu tends towards the traditional, beautifully presented and very appealing: you might start with a chicken and pork hock soup packed with vegetables and the ultimate comfort of little cheesy dumplings, then move onto duck breast flavoured with a rainbow of chard, beetroot and cherries. A wide-ranging cheese selection is a welcome sight at the end of the experience, and the whole is supported by an extensive wine list. Who doesn’t love meandering through the countryside on the way to a good meal?

Viva Review - Dec 21, 2012

4.0 Viva 21 December 2012

Can lunch ever really compete with dinner as the ultimate dining occasion? Most definitely. Especially when it involves taking a trip to the country - well, a mere 40 minutes from Auckland's CBD actually - through rolling hills to a beautifully restored villa with white wicker furniture set out on a wide shaded verandah, perfect for catching the breeze on a hot summer's day. I'm talking about Bracu, Simunovich Olive Estate's restaurant in rural Bombay.

Our reserved table on the verandah hadn't yet been vacated by the time we arrived for our late lunch, probably because the diners from an earlier sitting couldn't be prised from their seats and who could blame them? The indoor experience is a far cry from hardship though; the dining room/bar is a beautifully wallpapered sanctuary, an interesting mix of gracious and almost-gauche design, with the gentle clatter of cutlery, clinking glasses and happy conversation as a background track.
