Positioned amidst Auckland’s bustling cityscape, Hugo’s Bistro offers all day dining- a place to meet with friends, grab the morning coffee or eat in the welcoming dining room & bar
The sibling restaurant of Odettes Eatery is an ‘every day’ space, say husband & wife owners Clare & Joost van den Berg. It’s all about good food & good conversation.
Clare’s vision sees the historic Shortland Street site transformed into a thoughtful balance of brass & terrazzo, paired with subtle tones of green & blush. A feature marble bartop extends the length of the room & provides the perfect perching spot to see the chefs at work in the open kitchen.
The kitchen reimagines classic European fare, while creating some new favourites. Head Chef Emile Bennington draws inspiration from diverse regional cuisines. It’s a slick operation, working from the early hours of the day ’til late.
