Bellota by Peter Gordon
If you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner and drink pre-show, head to Bellota by Peter Gordon for the most authentic tapas experience you’ll find in Auckland.
Peter has travelled extensively through Spain for decades and he set up Bellota in 2006 to share his love of Spanish cuisine, wines and culture. Bellota showcases produce from across the Iberian Peninsula from it’s incredibly delicious jamon Iberico de bellota for which he named the restaurant – bellota means acorn - which the Iberico pigs eat and which contributes to their flavour. Chorizo is made in house, Spanish cheeses are served on platters or mixed into tasty croquettes, and you’ll find many Spanish grape varieties on the menu alongside sherries and cocktails. Bellota is all about celebrating Spain, an incredible country.
