Beautiful location, beautiful day.

We enjoyed a good lunch sitting on the terrace overlooking the golf course and coastline beyond. The only "fly in the ointment" was the noisy erecting of a marquee right beside us in preparation for a wedding the following day.

This place has an outstanding setting on a warm summers day. Tables are set out on a grassed area in front of what was or is a winery. The setting was fine on a nice day but we were unsure what would happen in bad weather. The building looked tired as were some of the staff. Our waitress was fine... More

Amazing restaurant!! My partner and I dined here on Sunday 30th June, after trying to book for 8 weeks (restaurant is only open if house guests are dining and we were not staying at Carrington resort), we managed to book for a 3 course meal. My partner had shrimp entree, beef cheek & scotch fillet main, and chocolate dessert, I... More

The food was great, with excellent wines and in an amazing setting. Only down side was lack of shade for alfresco dining.

This place has lovely views and could be a great place to eat but it appears rather tired and needs some sprucing up nd the food was average quality and pricey

While staying beach front in Matai Bay over the summer holidays, we enjoyed a scrumptious Christmas dinner at Carrington Club on the Carrington Resort. Beautiful setting, gorgeous sunset and view from the spacious verandah as you can see from our photo. Even though the restaurant was packed, the service was fantastic as was the food. It's the first time we've... More

We know the owners and have sometimes dined with them, so that really helps with the service aspect, but even without that the food is just fantastic and a better view out the window you won't find anywhere.

We drove there for dinner on a Saturday evening around 7:30PM and both the restaurant and reception were locked up and no staff were around. We were very disappointed as we were looking forward to a nice meal.

A cafe located in a picture perfect setting but was let down by zero customer service and overpriced food. We were served cold coffee, a coke with no glass and Luke warm food. The place markets itself as premium but u get a warmer welcome in your local KFC! Not worth the drive.
