We came here last Thursday (17 July) for our work Mid Year Function (9 people). We arrived at 2.30pm to a very warm friendly welcome. We had a variety of different entrees - I chose the Vegetarian Platter to share as a starter (between 3 of us) - it was absolutely amazing and was more than enough for 4-5 people.... More

We pent a few hours here before flying home to Australia, We met Sir George and his wife who were the perfect hosts and amazing people to have created such a magnificent winery - the restaurant is world class with the freshest of NZ produce prepared beautifully - and of course the Villa Maria wines are crafted with a great...

Villa Maria winery is a short drive from the Auckland airport. We had a wonderful lunch at the outdoor dining area overlooking the beautiful lake and the lovely view of the winery. My grandson enjoyed his kids menu and to keep him busy, he was provided with a very nice Dino picture to colour in whilst waiting for his food.... More

The new menu at this popular vineyard restaurant is interesting and the food itself is excellent - well presented, modern and expertly matched with the suggested Villa Maria wine. The concrete canteen ambience is somewhat cold, and at the city prices being charged one would not expect the paper napkin table settings. That said the service was bright and cheerful,... More

Outside table for lunch on a warm sunny winter's day. Really delicious food, excellent service though the restaurant was busy. When we went to the counter to pay the young man went through the account with us - and the meal for five didn't cost as much as I expected.

Had the pleasure of visiting several winery restaurants on an extended trip through New Zealand. The overall experience here is slightly below average. Overall, the setting/ambience of this place is excellent. We had two different wines - both were excellent. The only let down is the food which is distinctly average to below average. All of the items were quite... More

We had our christmas party here and it was grand. They have done up the place very well and it felt luxurious. The food and wine are of course excellent. And the waiters and the speed of which they serve the food is very well timed and quick.
