Shuck Me Hard! Where to eat the best "bluffies" this season.

Big, juicy and the tastiest in the world - Bluff oysters are worth making a song and dance about and here at ResDiary we intend to do just that by ‘dredging up’ our favourite restaurants in Auckland and beyond, where you can try these famous delicacies.

Euro Bar & Restaurant

It may be the Chinese year of the Rooster but at Euro it’s the Month of the Oyster! Euro can claim many firsts in the local hospitality scene, including first to bring Alaskan King Crab and Atlantic scallops to Auckland. Most notably, Euro became the first-ever New Zealand restaurant to make the world’s top 50 in Conde Nast Traveler magazine. We recommend visiting here for plump bluff oysters perfectly paired with great champagnes while enjoying the view across Auckland Harbour.

Jervois Steak House Auckland

There are steakhouses, then there are steakhouses and then there’s Jervois Steak House. Jervois Steak House is an authentic and premium steak house, and makes no apologies for unashamedly celebrating a love of meat. The menu showcases a veritable who’s who of meats in all forms, sourced from the very best beef and lamb producers. However at certain times of the year, a steak gets substituted for something plump, velvety with a rich salty taste: THE BLUFF OYSTER. We recommend trying them freshly shucked and served au naturel with lemon.

The Culpeper

We have been with the Culpeper every step of the way watching them prepare for the arrival of the Bluff Oysters. From gazing misty eyed at their Facebook posts showing executive chef Gareth  Stewart out on the dredging boat with the crew, too seeing the oysters packaged and making their journey to Princes Wharf for the best festival yet. Visit the Culpeper for a month of daily oyster deals, drink specials, free dinner giveaways, live music and much more for you to enjoy.

Harbourside Ocean Grill

If we were to describe The Harbourside Ocean Grill in Auckland we would say it was classically inspired , with an elegant wine selection all accompanied by excellent service. These traits coupled with their stunning location in Auckland’s iconic Ferry building have made it one of the hottest dining destinations on the harbour, made even more appealing by its extensive deck area and retractable roof perfect for enjoying Bluffies on.
