After visiting Puke Ariki, we decided to eat at Arborio and it was delicious! The mussels were fantastic and everything else we had including some pastas, pork dish, salads and a bottle of wine. A definite stop after the museum.

Lovely lunch today at Arborio. I had the mussels which were tasty and abundant. My son had the chicken burger which was massive and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were friendly enough. Nice spot on a rainy summers day.
