This vineyard and restaurant combines tasting of excellent wines and delicious food. The staff are friendly, welcoming and knowledgable about both wines and food on offer. There was a warming fire, which was perfect on a rainy day. The food is full of flavour and beautifully cooked. We had swordfish, which was cooked to perfection and ox cheek, which was... More

Because this is a restaurant set in a vineyard you can do wine tasting before you choose your wine. There is a varied menu and the food is delicious.

It wasn't busy at all but we had to wait 20 minutes to get our bottle of wine we ordered - it seemed more important to walk past us and put salt and pepper on an empty table. It seemed like we had been... More

We tend to go to Paihia once a year and every time we make a booking at this Vineyard Restaurant for the Sunday lunch time. The food is really something not to be missed, not cheap but not over expensive either. We usually have the roast with proper yorkshire pudding which is something hard to come by in New Zealand,...

Four of us enjoyed a delightful lunch on a cold wet day. Waiter was attentive, listened to our requests to alter the menu to suit our tastes. The meals were attractive, fresh and delightfully presented. Very tasty. Desserts were generous and yummy. Service perfect, thank you.

My partner and I went for a spontaneous dinner here after an eventful weekend. Lovely ambience with comfortably atmosphere. Man serving was brilliant and helpful. Food was delicious and unique. I recommend the duck! Really cool place tucked amongst the vines.

Great service and amazing food: I had the best avocado and prawn salad and my partner had a beautifully trimmed flaky crispy duck! Great homemade desserts and good white wines! We highly recommend it
