Takapuna is the ultimate destination before and after enjoying NZ Sculpture OnShore. Grab a meal, drink, ice-cream or dessert at one of over 150 hospitality options. Takapuna has it all from seaside restaurants and bars, to Melbourne-inspired eatery laneways, ice-cream parlours and cafes – there is something to satisfy whatever you're craving.
For some specific ideas, you could load up on energy with a delightful brunch at Zomer Café, Street Organics Café or So French Café. If you're having a hard time choosing what to eat, check out the Fortieth & Hurstmere laneway for their collection of eateries from chicken and salads, authentic pizza napoletana, Colombian-style barbecue, poke bowls or Dutch treats.
If you're looking to dine with a view, head down to the beach to the seaside restaurant Regatta Bar & Eatery and enjoy looking out to our beautiful Hauraki Gulf and Rangitoto Island. Next door to Regatta is modern Japanese restaurant Tokyo Bay and comfort food heaven, Franc's. If you are looking for something more casual with friends, The Elephant Wrestler at Hurstmere Road has a great range of drinks and food specials on offer.
If you need some retail therapy after the event, why not head down Hurstmere Road or into the refurbished Shore City shopping centre.
