“Beautiful surroundings, but range of food and service a bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Stoneyridge is beautifully put together. We visited the restaurant, where you also get to taste a selection of three wines.

The surroundings are truly spectacular, so I'd recommend popping in to try the wines, but the restaurant wasn't really to my taste.

The food was tasty enough, but the choice was a bit narrow, and might not appeal to everyone. Second the service just felt, well neglectful. With a lot of people seeming to wait quite a while to be asked if they'd like another drink or anything.

“Rustic Vineyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Stonyridge is an iconic vineyard on Waiheke - it has a rustic yet mediterranean feel. The food can be great but can also be average. They do platters. The outside eating area has nice views of the hills and vineyards around. They are noted for their wine - particularly their Red. It is worth doing the tasting.

“Expensive (but good)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

Great food - but prices over the top. Nice rural setting, but can't be compared to the views of Te Whau, Cable bay etc, so I think they need to do better to earn thei very high prices. Service great.

“Food and wine great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Had lunch here one day.
Wine was delicious.
Food was excellent (delicious and well priced).
The only thing was we felt a bit frowned upon by Waiter and other patron as we are not "posh" and were wearing casual clothes!
