Soul is in the heart of Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. The bistro prides itself on its use of the finest, freshest local ingredients and, as may be expected from its location, Soul has an emphasis on seafood.

Its elegant all-weather terrace faces west to catch the spectacular sunsets, views out across the water that take in America’s Cup boats, super yachts, water taxis and even fishing boats. 

Plus they host regular events such as their Soul Punch parties, fashion lunches with incredible New Zealand designers and Restaurant Month events that always sell out.
