Had an amazing birthday lunch in the restaurant after wine tasting. I had the lamb cigars and my husband had the pork belly, the meals were small but big enough for lunch after some nice bread and olive oil to start. I almost stole all my husbands pork belly as it was the best, most succulent pork... read more

We had lunch at Te Awa in January and it was a lovely experience. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waitress knew the menu inside out and was helpful in explaining the dishes. It's a clever menu which offers mains or a selection of smaller dishes, rather like tapas but more substantial. Te Awa offers a... More

We booked and were seated outside in the garden. We shared the lamb shoulder, pumpkin & lettuce with a glass of rosé. Perfect food, perfect wine match. This is a beautiful spot to relax and be treated to really well cooked food.

Couldn't accomodated us with wine tasting to be able to choose for our meals. The waitresses were very polite, our meals were delivered quickly and very delicious. But no wine!

We did not have a booking but were accommodated without any fuss. I think we got lucky. It is a wonderful setting on a sunny day - you can sit inside with the walls opened so out of the sun or outdoors under an umbrella. There is a pétanque pit and plenty of room for kids to run around.

We made an unscheduled stop at Te Awa Winery Restaurant for a late lunch and very much enjoyed the delectable dishes and nice wines served during the occasion. We found the restaurant to be quite nice, a conventional cellar style layout and design with tables well spaced apart. Service was polite, engaging and capable of making good wine pairing suggestions.... More

I will start by saying the grounds are absolutely fantastic, really photo friendly. We stopped in here on bikes to sample at the cellar door, the staff were very knowledgeable but seemed a bit distant with us, not outright rude but perhaps a little 'superior'. I put this down to the fact that we are mid-20s and possibly not their... More

Haven't been to Te Awa for many a year so was looking forward to a rejuvenation! Staff, service and atmosphere were great But - why not tidy the garden up and at least sweep the path to the front door! also the cushions on the seats were grubby and not fit to sit on, either turn them over or wash...

We have been here many times for lunch and were once again not disappointed. We shared a bottle of Te Awa Farm chardonnay and this time decided to go with 5 tapas dishes instead of individual plates. Fabulous food choices, including amazing beetroot cakes enjoyed in front of the fire.
