854 Dominion Road, Mount Eden
Restaurants, Eat & Drink
Cazador’s location is a little off the beaten track, and they like it that way. Situated on an unassuming suburban block on Dominion Road, it’s one of Auckland’s oldest restaurants, with a staying power that comes from marching to the beat of its own drum.
Owners Dariush Lolaiy and wife Rebecca Smidt took over Cazador in 2013 from Dariush’s parents, Tony and Barbara, who opened the restaurant in 1987, a Persian restaurant using game meat in a city whose only restaurants at the time were old-school French bistros.
