Nestled on the sunlit slopes of the Bombay Hills, just out of central Pukekohe the well renowned fine dining Bracu restaurant forms part of the world class Simunovich Olive Estate built from the ground up in 1999. The family owned estate, founded by Ivan Simunovich was initially set up with sustainability in mind and now boasts 30,000 olive trees producing award winning olive oils.
The dining at Bracu is both elegant and contemporary. Experience the exquisite a la carte menu or, for a meal to remember, opt for the seven-course degustation. Prepared by Head Chef Logan Clark with seasonal offerings from the estate’s own gardens and passionate local producers the dishes combine innovative flavor combinations and are superbly presented. Bracu offers a perfect setting to relax and enjoy the occasion either on our all-weather verandah or inside by the magnificently restyled Kauri villa by the fire.
