Description: Casita Miro is a glass pavilion set on a hill in the middle of a vineyard. The views from the restaurant are across the vineyard and the village to the sea at Onetangi. The restaurant was judged Auckland's Best Rural Restaurant in the 2011 Audi-Metro restaurant awards and it was second place in2012. It was runner up for the Best Casual Bistro, and the proprietor, Cat Vosper was judged Auckland's Restaurant Personality of the Year for 2011. Casita Miro serves an eclectic mix of Spanish tapas and Moroccan food, all using fresh local and New Zealand produce. Even the fish is caught in the sea within a few kilometres of the restaurant. Chef Logan Coath has cooked in the UK, South Africa and around the Mediterranean as well as at top class New Zealand restaurants including Clooney and Cable Bay Vineyards. The manager is Will Thorpe, who is doubly qualified because he is also a top ranked chef.

“Great Restaurant; loved the atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Fantastic Atmosphere. We were only there for a small lunch but left very satisfied after having some of their olives, bread with dips, and two tapas. I'll be bringing the girlfriend here later.

“A real gem that is back to its best...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

A glorious sunny day, a walk on the beach and a fabulous lunch amongst the vineyards... life doesn't get much better! My last visit here in 2013 was a disappointment. The food and the service were not as good before... BUT that has all changed with a new chef at the helm and a determination from the incomparable owner, Cat to get things back on top... No wonder I have had troubles making a booking this year. Casita Miro is now at its terrific best... and more. A wonderful selection of truly delicious tapas-style dishes in a buzzy atmosphere with informed and attentive service. A MUST for any discerning foodie.... a stunning cuisine ...that you won't find anywhere else in these parts... in a lively environment set overlooking the vines and the ocean beyond... Perfect.

“Friday Lunch at Casita Miro”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

The setting is amazing. The Kalamata olives were the best I've ever tasted. We had breads with goat cheese and pumpkin dip to start. It was phenomenal. Short rib, Calamari with Chorizo, Lamb tanjin with figs and Cockles for mains. 10/10! Desserts were Devine! I wouldn't hesitate to come back with a group of friends and an afternoon free to have lunch then drink their amazing wines on the hillside in the sun. Perfection.

“Catering for the top end of the market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

The ambience was very pleasant and relaxing.The view over the vineyard was impressive.The service was laid back and efficient.The food was was very well prepared and presented,if a little pricey.
The wine by the glass was very expensive and out of proportion to cost by the bottle.
Casita Miro has come a long way from its beginnings and is now positioning itself to the top end of the market.
