One of the city's modern Filipino restaurants, Bar Magda is rewriting the rulebook in Auckland's bustling CBD.

Mysterious and seductive, Bar Magda has the infinite power to intrigue and delight. Flooded in a burnt orange glow, this restaurant is as romantic and intimate as they come, inviting diners to enjoy one another's company at elegant bistro tables surrounded by contemporary art. What's more, it's the perfect place to sip on a signature cocktail as the evening drifts on. But more on that later.

If you're not sure what Filipino cuisine entails, allow Bar Magda to enlighten you. To start, they're coupling salsa huancaina with white anchovies, and pairing tuna carpaccio with mayo, topped with flying fish caviar. Now that's a welcome change from NZ's beloved aioli! They're also dipping into European cuisines every so often, serving up an intriguing parmesan custard with preserved pimiento, and a chicken and duck liver parfait with Viennese brioche.

Mains are a celebratory affair and offer different dimensions of flavour. From BBQ young corn with burnt coconut to charcoal steak with soy butter and lamb ribs pyanggang style, please for your favourite new discovery. Then dedicate a toast with any of their theatrical cocktails and raise your glasses to tantalising flavours hitherto unknown.
