Welcome home Esther

With the warm embrace of humble tradition, Esther brings the authentic tastes of the Mediterranean’s sun-soaked shores to QT Auckland; perched by the marina at the Viaduct Harbour, catching the salty air.

Inspired by travels chasing the food of the sun, renowned head chef Sean Connolly uses home-grown ingredients to share flavours that transcend Sicily to Southern France and lure you towards the magnificence of Morocco.

The open country-style kitchen sets the scene for a homely welcome to Esther’s wistful European charms. Produce is theatrically prepped for a sustainable menu that focuses on local daily caught seafood.

Honest simplicity and lively spirit are what make this Auckland restaurant unique.

Get caught up in Esther’s wanderlust where long lunches and lavish dinners drift up to cocktails at our rooftop bar.
