Lunch among the vines

This was not my first visit for lunch at Clearview but it was such a lovely day here in the Bay that it was worth celebrating with another visit. The celebrations continued with a cocktail of Sea Red and Bella bubbles before we enjoyed a two course lunch from an interesting and tasty selection of... read more

We often stop at Clearview when riding the cycle trails out to Te Awanga or Clifton. The rustic ambience is very much to our liking. The coffee is consistently good and it's a pleasure to sit outside in the Hawke's Bay sunshine with the Pacific not far away. Once the coffee is ordered I usually take the opportunity to taste...

Had lunch here in June. Shared platters have something for all tastes on them and also very generous in size. We sat at an outdoor table and enjoyed some rose. The setting is just fantastic.

We've visited Clearview a few times over the years, especially for their full-on chardonnay and reds. It was a pleasure to enjoy their seasonal platter, sitting in the sun, comfortable in spite of a cool June westerly. The range of Hawkes Bay produce, and in-house bread and condiments etc gave the taste buds a treat after the drive down from... More

I reviewed this fabulous winery a month ago as had been disappointed with a platter I received when entertaining guests from out of town. Well they certainly made up for that and on having a guest from Auckland and the offer of a platter from Clearview we were absolutely delighted with the service, food and wine. Just amazing platter and... More

We were a group of 8. We tasted & ate at the restaurant. All of their wines were available for drinking. The guy who served us our tastings made it very easy. Surprised that their best wines were available. Very good food with great wine & lots of laughs.

Great food, excellent wine tasting options and relaxed surroundings under the vineyard canopies. A relaxed lunchtime was spent enjoying the top class food and wine with the steak lover in the group commenting theirs was the best ever - no mean feat considering the person in question is over 80! The fish was fresh and delicious with an excellent choice... More

Clearview is by far my favourite winery in Hawke's Bay but I was a tad disappointed on Sunday last. Having a visitor for the long weekend we called into Clearview for a glass of wine and ordered dips for a snack. It was around 3pm and service was a little slow but wine is always nice. When the dips came... More

ClearviewEstate, Owner at Clearview Estate Winery Restaurant, responded to this review

thanks for your generous feedback - it was the Sunday of the first Mondayised Anzac weekend and we did run out of our housebaked breads. Hard to enjoy olive oil without bread ! & it should not have gone out. So our apologies, and do contact Ketan or Kristy who will give you the correct platter next time (on us). More
