Ampersand is a Brilliant Place to Eat & Relax.

Located in Orakei Bay Village, Ampersand Eatery offers some of the tastiest dishes out there with beautiful views.

For example, their Grilled Market Fish is not only amazing to look at, but it is also cooked to perfection - no wonder why it is one of their most popular dishes.

Ampersand is unique. It is a collaborative space run by the owners Mikey Newlands and Amanda Rogers. In addition, you can find Espresso Workshop serving beautiful coffee by the entrance.

For a while, Ampersand's been one of my favourite places to either work on my laptop or to have a meeting with clients, while drinking Espresso workshop's amazing coffee... And of course, eating their brilliant food.

One of my personal favourites is their Cauliflower; the twice-cooked cauliflowers with raisins, capers and three-cheese sauce is absolutely amazing. See below:
