Clearview is always a favorite for us when we come to the Bay.......Yummy food, amazing wines!! The staff are always attentive and friendly and the atmosphere they have created is wonderful. For a relaxed , rustic lunch in the vines I would definitely recommend.

We were looking forward to our final lunch in the bay on what up until today had not disappointed. Walking into the restaurant we had high hopes. The decor was dated which didn't bother us too much as we were so excited about lunch. Our waitress was friendly and helpful although she admitted to is that she had not been... More

We went here for lunch a few days ago, and the platter, dips, and fries we got were absolutely delicious. We also had the best coffee of our 10 day visit to New Zealand. The wines weren't really our cup of tea - as it is a coastal region they are quite mineral tasting, but some people would probably find... More

Had an awesome lunch (and wine tasting) at Clearview. Compliments to the chef as everyone in our group (of 8) was extremely happy with their food, maybe it was the wine that helped☺. The cinnamon espresso brulée is one of the best desserts i have had in a long time.

Really nice visit with Tim the owner who described the wine making process. Lovely casual restaurant with playground for kids on the side - great for a family winery visit.

We lunched here just before Christmas and were very disappointed with the service. We'd booked a table to be sure of getting in, but it turned out to be very quiet and only half the tables were full. The food was very good, but they forgot to bring out our dessert - it arrived after I had requested the bill,... More

Like others we found the service at the restaurant a bit slow - maybe too busy? Food was good and the playground helped with the kids. Cellar door tastings were better - the star was the sticky red. Have yet to see what all the fuss is about when it comes to the Hawkes Bay Bordeaux blends and Syrah although... More

Slow service, we had to ask where our drinks were after we had been waiting 20 mins. They had forgotten what drinks we ordered. The kids meals took 40 mins to appear and were poorly cooked - cheap cuts of bacon with rind still on etc. Another 30 mins before our mains arrived after yet another enquiry, and my pork... More
