Still good

This is one of the better winery restaurants around the Hawke's Bay. The location and setup is superb and good for all weathers. Always busy in summer as it is so good. Try some wine tasting - they have a huge range available for tasting.

A superb setting amongst olive trees, grapevines and avocado trees. People arrived by bike, taxi and car. A busy place. We had reserved a table and sat outside under the striped canopy. Our table was in the flight path of some cheeky sparrows and blackbirds but nice to be close to nature. Clearview wines are all available by the glass... More

Lovely location under the sun (or in shade if you like) for lunch with accompanying wines; wine tasting is a must at this venue and please do take your time, relax and spoil yourself at the same time. Wines that good we arranged with them to send some home (to the UK) with reasonable (but not cheap) shipping prices. Well... More

After a hike to Cape Kidnappers, my partner, David and I went to Clearview for wine tasting. We were so impressed with the knowledge and graciousness of our host (I can't remember his name, but he's a fine gentleman originally from Holland), that we decided to stay for lunch and couldn't have made a better decision. The food was delicious,... More

It was very crowded when we dropped in but staff were doing well. We were invited to taste any wines we liked and the staff were able to tell us about them. We then stayed and drank a few glasses of wine and took a couple of bottles home. The wine is amazing and it's a lovely place to spend... More

We were travelling around North Island in a motorhome and wanted to experience the vineyards in the Hawkes Bay Area. The i site in Napier recommended staying in a campsite in Te Awanga and visiting Clearview and Elephant Hill. The latter was closed for a private function but we managed to get a lunch reservation at Clearview. Unfortunately no taxis... More

We did not stop for the food, we stopped for the wine and ended up with wine and a cheese platter. A nice way to spend an afternoon. This place makes great wine and lots of it, try the Sea Red and the Reserve Chardonnay, both are excellent. The restaurant has a laid back feel, if you are in a... More

My first comment, to all those who put a low rating because it's all booked out or no room in wine tasting or a wait time to purchase wine is just stupid obviously it's a great place as its always full. So if your going to rate a business low on this website do it for the right reasons. My... More
