Staff went extra mile for special lunch

Gorgeous setting. Loads parking. My fiancé had booked ahead that it was my 50th birthday lunch. He had asked for a glass of bubbles on arrival. Staff gave us choice of two prime tables we chose the outdoor one. There were flowers on table and a bottle of bubbles with two glasses. Nice. We were also... read more

Lovely Service, Good menus choices leaning on gourmet and Of course the choice of Villa Maria Wines, Would definitely eat here again but don't expect a romantic restaurant with white table cloth and candlesticks which one associates with a Vineyard restaurant. The restaurant is family oriented and functional and the prices are reasonable too. Don't hesitate to book and eat... More

We popped in for a quick wine tasting and were amazed with the service and knowledge of the staff. They were extremely informative about the vineyard and wines and certainly knew their product. Unfortunately we were booked elsewhere for lunch otherwise definitely would have stayed as it looked amazing.

After a morning of go kart racing around the corner at Formula E Raceway, out group visited Villa Maria for lunch. The wine flowed except in my glass as I was the ever present sober driver (A must for any responsible group) The food was great, our selection was beef or chicken and they were both great. The cheesecake for... More

This was our second visit and having enjoyed the previous visit we decided to treat my visiting in-laws from Australia to a lunch at Villa Maria on their second to last day in New Zealand. I booked a week in advance and found only the 3.00pm slot left but booked anyway. Sadly we arrived to find a wedding about to... More

My family and I went to Villa Maria for lunch for my brothers birthday yesterday. The food was fantastic, service phenomenal. If you get Martina she is simply the best, very attentive and friendly. I had the eye fillet and creme brulet both excellent dishes. They also cater for my gluten free dietary needs. So if you are looking for... More

I had a four hour layover in Auckland and instead of hanging about at the airport, I went to Villa Maria, a handy five minutes away by car, to enjoy a quick meal and glass of wine. I will be doing that again. A lovely setting in the vineyard, great food and wine.

This is our second visit and we were just as impressed as last time. We came to Sunday lunch to celebrate a family birthday. It was a beautiful sunny day and we dined at a table outside. The restaurant was very busy so there was a long wait for our meals, but it was worth the wait. The food is... More

This was my first visit to Villa Maria. I didn't know anything about it but being out near the airport I thought I would try it out as I had read about it in the entertainment book. All I can say is it was perfect in every way. The scenery and setting is lovely and tranquil - which isn't what... More
