Driving to the restaurant through rows of vines was pretty at sunset and the place itself looked so inviting. Staff were so helpful and although the menu isnt enormous there was a good selection. We didn't wait long for our entree. Husband had John Dorey main and l had crumbed prawns. They were both delicious and of a healthy size.... More

Our daughter and family had previously dined here and recommended it to us. We decided to make a booking for New Years Eve. The restaurant is in a nice setting amongst the grapevines. On arrival, the staff were very friendly and attentive. They cater for young children by supplying coloured felts & pictures, also a toy box, which was great... More

We had a small tour (part of a day trip to KeriKeri) and were shown around a little before tasting. The gentleman even dressed for the occasion in some very savvy gumboots. It... More

I've been very welcome, and have had time to have a look at the wine selection from the shop and to enjoy the comfortable setting of the restaurant area. I've had hot camembert as a starter, which was great, nicely served with an excellent bread loaf and a small salad.... More
