Description: Casita Miro is a glass pavilion set on a hill in the middle of a vineyard. The views from the restaurant are across the vineyard and the village to the sea at Onetangi. The restaurant was judged Auckland's Best Rural Restaurant in the 2011 Audi-Metro restaurant awards and it was second place in2012. It was runner up for the Best Casual Bistro, and the proprietor, Cat Vosper was judged Auckland's Restaurant Personality of the Year for 2011. Casita Miro serves an eclectic mix of Spanish tapas and Moroccan food, all using fresh local and New Zealand produce. Even the fish is caught in the sea within a few kilometres of the restaurant. Chef Logan Coath has cooked in the UK, South Africa and around the Mediterranean as well as at top class New Zealand restaurants including Clooney and Cable Bay Vineyards. The manager is Will Thorpe, who is doubly qualified because he is also a top ranked chef.

Great setting, friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere. Really yummy food and you have to try the 'Long Madame Rouge' and their 'Sangria' - both stunning.

Casita Miro came highly recommended- we went the distance to enjoy a delicious meal at this winery. If you are new to tapas, take the plunge and choose the Chef's Fiesta. As the owner of our accommodation said, "You will be glad you went." Absolutely delicious food- and finally, service not only with a smile but a genuine concern that... More

Casita Miro is one of Waiheke's best. The food is all local, much of it from their own gardens. They profile their local suppliers on the back of their menu. The portions are a little small and it's not cheap, but every flavor is perfect.

Went there for my boyfriend's lunch and the staff informed us that all food are designed for sharing, which is great! We ordered the roasted potatoes, salmon and churros con chocolate, all of which were awesome. You can feel the chef's attention to taste and every food is served with excellence the moment they are ready. Our table overlooks the... More

This was our third visit and it continues to get better and better at Casita Miro - now a firm family favourite. Everything is perfect, from the beautiful dining room, the relaxed, casual atmosphere, the always excellent service, the stunning views and of course the food and wine (and coffee!). One of my favourite places on the planet to visit... More

Everything about Casita Miro was memorable and impressive. The place was rustic and charming with wonderful views. We loved everything we ordered from the tapas menu. Loved the paella and the churros! The passionfruit and fejoia sangrias were delicious. Best of all, the staff were simply amazing. They really know how to deliver excellent customer service.

This lovely “boutique” vineyard was charming. After having lunch in a slick, noisy, pretentious tapas café in a large vineyard, this vineyard restaurant was delightful. At first we were taken aback because our server was not only new to the establishment but also to the profession. He was the kind of an order taker I would expect in a fast... More
