Delicious risotto.

Great ambience. Enjoyed the Syrah wine and the rissotto dish. Not huge portions but probably typical of the restaurants in that price range. $111 for two people which included two mains, one dessert and one bottle of Syrah.

Great selection of fine food and wine. Friendly and efficient service. Short drive fro Paihia to this pleasant location. Suggest booking probably necessary for weekends, as it was quite busy mid-week. Highly recommended.

We both started with the Potato and Leek Soup. We had the Fish of the day and the Beef Fillet as our mains. We finished off with the Pecan Butter Tartlet and the Vanilla Cheesecake. Service was prompt and friendly and the food delicious.

Our 3rd visit to this delightful vineyard. The macadamia crusted hapuka was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent, as was the wine. Will be back.

The seafood chowder and platter were a perfect combination for lunch and the Pilot Gris was devine. Friendly staff and a homely atmosphere.
