Soul Bar & Bistro

The Gold Standard

Wine and dine your way around the top restaurants as voted by you, with a little something to sweeten settling up the bill from American Express.

Dining your way around the proud winners of Denizen’s 2022 Hospo Heroes is a journey worth taking this season, and thanks to American Express’ new Gold Rewards Card, it’s never been easier or more rewarding. Card Members can indulge in memorable gastronomic experiences through American Express’ exclusive Dining Collection (which includes a number of our much-adored Hospo Hero-winners in Auckland and beyond) and enjoy up to $200 of Dining Credit1 — one of the Gold Rewards Card’s most enticing benefits.

There’s a delectable list of restaurants that count themselves part of the American Express Dining Collection, including some standouts you’ll uncover on the following pages. From the eternally popular Italian all-day eatery, Amano to the divine celebration spot, Mr Morris. Reliable favourites Andiamo and Non Solo Pizza make the cut too, alongside the ever-inspired Azabu and Soul Bar & Bistro, and even those found further afield, including South Island destination, Amisfield. And if you spend $100 or more on your American Express Gold Rewards Card at any of the participating Dining Collection restaurants you will be eligible for $100 credit, twice a year. That’s $200 back on some of the most delicious dining experiences across the country. 

Dining Credits are just some of the rewards found with the new American Express Gold Rewards Card. Promising to add serious panache to your purse, this card is available in either gold or rose gold, and Card Members are able to earn 2 Membership Rewards2 Points for every dollar spent (to be used for travel, gift cards or to pay off eligible purchases). Additional cards can also be added for no extra cost. For those not currently members, you can sign up online today
to reap the endless rewards.
