Euro’s longevity as a provider of higher-end dining has made it an Auckland hospitality institution. After periods where the brightness of its sheen has dimmed slightly, Euro today is stronger than ever. In its dockside location, the dining environment is polished and professional, with an air of formality evidenced through its crisp table settings and staff attire. It continues to be a leader in the provision of high-quality service and the menu is rock solid, taking a “something for everyone” approach, not afraid to keep serving timetested favourites such as fried chicken and Peking duck, while equally happy to introduce Caroline Bay flounder and Wakanui rump. Portion sizes are generous and the drinks list extensive. Euro is very clear about who its dining audience is and it works hard to satisfy their needs.
