Visited Clearview for Sunday lunch. Reservation was efficient friendly, as indeed was our initial welcome to the restaurant, though it was clear that they were struggling with service on this day. Half an hour for the kid's drinks to arrive and some time too before our food turned up. Other diners were having similar issues and apologies were eventually being... More

We really appreciate your feedback and I do apologise to your family as on this Sunday we were woefully shortstaffed (for a number of reasons). It was school holidays and we were delightfully popular and busy, we don't want to turn people away and try to oblige. I do hope you return as we have improved the macaroni cheese and... More

This is a very good lunch place for families if you want to combine it with some wine testing. There is a play ground just next to the lunch area. Overall a rustic feeling (froma positive point of view). Wine was good as well

We have been here several times over the years and the one thing that draws us back is the outlook and location near the sea. The food is good without being outstanding for the slightly high price. The service is also a bit average, we had to go up to the bar to order wine ourselves 10 minutes after arriving... More

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch, interesting menu, excellent service. However one dish was particularly disappointing, we wonder why as one of our guests had the same dish a couple of weeks earlier and it was much nicer both in presentation and taste. It's embarrassing when a guest recommends a dish to several others and it comes out poorly presented and... More

We were incredibly disappointed by our return visit to what was a lovely winery restaurant. Had to chase the staff down for a menu, then a wine list, and were chastised by the wait staff for requesting a brunch menu item at 12.59 after waiting over 30 minutes for service. The food was lovely, although desserts had to be cancelled... More

Went for lunch but was not overly impressed. Wait staff couldn't really care less, food average and when my husband ordered a (different) glass of wine he was not even given a clean glass! There are plenty of other good places to go on a beautiful sunny HB day

Luckily I made a reservation for this restaurant as it was full! The fish (John Dory) was beautifully cooked and served and we both thoroughly enjoyed our first meal with this winery. We will also go back here.

We just visited the winery for a tasting while returning from Kidnappers Cape to Napier. It was quiet and near to closing, but the attendant was very helpful. They have a nice malbec, and a very good rose. We had originally tasted the rose at a wine shop in Taupo, and bought a couple of bottles at the winery for... More
