Delicious Sunday Roast

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... read more

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

The quality of the food here is consistent. Unfortunately it is all a bit the same. the menu appears to be very similiar each time we visit. Providing you don't mind this the food is acceptable and the service is friendly and efficient.

Had an amazing meal at the Ake Ake Vineyard Restaurant last night. By far the best quality food we have tasted during our stay in NZ. Beautifully and imaginatively cooked with wonderful ingredients. The service was attentive but not intrusive resulting in a relaxed evening that I will remember for years to come! Not to be missed if you are... More

A fantastic restaurant with amazing food and attentive and considerate staff. We return here every year exactly for this reason. The location and ambience of the restaurant is an added bonus.

My family and I dined at this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was superb in quality, preparation and presentation with one minor exception.. In particular, my steak was cooked to absolute perfection; the prawns were delicious but I regret to say that the pannacotta that I ordered as a desert... More

We visited the Winery as part of a tour that took in other food / crafts in the area. It was good. We went and stood amongst the vines as one of the owners talked us through the production process and answered all our questions. We then went to taste some wines. These were nice..... we got to try red... More
