Went with friends for lunch. Lovely airy venue with inside and outside dining options. There are other rooms to hire for private functions of different sizes. The meal was as anticipated, the Confit of Duck with cherries was absolutely delicious, he had the Angus steak and still talks about it. Our friends were very happy with their meals as well....

Business lunch with a very important customer. Service was slow but good and friendly. The food was superb - from the group of 8 people everybody raved about the food - not one negative comment. Only minor negative would be that the décor could do with a spruce up and the table settings could be a little more up market... More

Used Villa Maria for a sales team dinner. Great food for a large group. Room we had was a little plain decor wise but it had ideal indoor/outdoor flow. Fantastic wines and very good service from the staff on the night and leading up. We had the room to ourselves and we were able to use our own music.

We had the duck confit with brandied cherries which was fantastic. The Chocolate Crème Brule was lack luster but adequate. The service was friendly but a bit slow, however, the restaurant was busy and we were talking with other winery folks. All in all, a great meal. One of the best in Auckland that I have had.

A group of 8 adults and two little children gathered for a celebration on a long weekend. Outdoors was available for us to be seated but we chose indoors as one member felt a chill. Attentive wait person from the Cheslovakia Republic knew her wine and menu extremely well. The 2 children were afforded the same courtesy as adults and... More

We booked for our special anniversary and were greeted and given a bottle of bubbles. But my soup arrived ten mins before my Hubbys after we enquired. They got my main course wrong then tried to charge us for it as an extra.

What more could you want? Perfect food, wine was outstanding (esp the Wairu Valley Sauvignon Blanc) and a pleasure to have a tour around the makings of a delicious wine. On holiday from the UK and managed to go to lunch there twice. Tasting Flight just £5 for 3 wines and a platter which was to die for....£25 for two... More

After a business meeting in the area, we popped in for lunch at Villa Maria. What an amazing sight driving into the lovely grounds. It is serene and relaxing. Lunch time on a Monday was quiet, staff were welcoming and friendly. We ordered the platter and bottle of wine which was extremely reasonably priced. Pleased with the wine choice and... More

Surprisingly rural so close to the airport and industrial estates but clever landscaping makes it very pleasant. Lunch was scallops and Turkish bread and mains were condfit of duck and hapuka with clams and tagliatelle. Excellent taste and good service. Took the opportunity to have two glasses each of four different wines - which served the owner's purpose since we... More
