I am going to spend New Year's Eve 2012/13 at Auckland Central with my son and my husband. I saw the post below (Aug 16), and wonder if it would be safe to make a reservation at a restaurant for the night, as many people will hang around and look for one.
Since my 14-year-old son hates to stand in line, I think I had better look for a restaurant in advance.
CityLife Auckland is the hotel we are staying. Any recommendation for a resaurant to have dinner and wine (not for my son, of course!) on NY Eve? We love seafood and Italian. Do many people eat while watching the fireworks? If so, then we would like to go to a place in a good location to watch them.
