“A must visit place in Auckland”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

Visited this place alone. A relatively small and cozy place to visit. It has enough places for me to explore the whole day... I love the walk i had, along the main street looking at those houses, found some nice shops/ restaurant, had a coffee... Walked to St Mary and later to the Parnell Museum. I enjoyed myself walking all the way from main road to the museum.

“Lovely village atmosphere”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We ate at Di Mare steak and seafood restaurant one night and though expensive the food was delicious. We shared the seafood paella and also a porterhouse steak with vegetables. All delicious. Also, ate lunch one day at the Burgerfuel which had delicious NZ beef and lamb. For gifts go to The Elephant House in Parnell located off a side street. Great prices and very wide selection of gifts to take home.

“Georgeous suburb,worth living in”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

Indulgence and a trip-back-in-time,is what this lovely Victorian timber villas along the upper slope of Parnell road,provide. They now acting out a second life as antique shops,designer boutiques,cafes and restaurants.
This is a case of saving these gems from the jaws of development in the 60s. Today,you will revel in the pink & white timber facades as you ruminate through the lovely village with gardens and mature trees.
The eateries are first rate and the cafes too inviting,too numerous,and worth coming back to on a regular basis.

“Parnel Rise”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

A nice historic part of Auckland to walk up and down with your partner. Awesome cafes and some unique stores. Bring a fat wallet though as they are pricey. Short walk over to the north and you will find the beautiful parnell rose gardens. Worth a look if your in the area
