What is it? A stylish waterfront restaurant serving fresh seafood and stunning views.
Why go? Named after the tiny baby fish, Whitebait is smack-bang in the newish Clyde Quay Wharf development. You might want to put on your best threads and dig deep – it’s not the cheapest joint in town. But whether you go for the degustation or the three-course menu, you’ll be rewarded with clever food with a focus on regional kai moana (seafood). You won’t want to miss the wild jack mackerel with leek, pork jowl and preserved lemon and the West Coast hapuka fillet with pumpkin, butternut and mandarin.
