“Like Waiheke Road -a lot of twists & turns.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We visited Stonyridge mid-afternoon for a wine tasting and a snack. NZ wineries charge for tastings and here there are numerous options which are not spelled out that well.

The great thing was the wait staff's ability to upgrade my order to "premium package" for a few more bucks even though we were half way thru. We also ordered a cheese plate that far better than our expectation and included tasty bits such as wild bees honeycomb.

The Cabernets that hallmark this winery will change your perception of NZ reds forever. We enjoyed a number of quality reds on the island but Stoneyridge is not to be missed.

Ps. The view down the valley with the winter sun warmth is most enjoyable

“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I have been to this vineyard on several occasions over the years, but not in mid winter,Again we found dining there a very pleasurable. The staff were very friendly, fun and nice, and the platter for two along with the wine quite acceptable. It was a beauitful sunny day and sitting enjoying a long lunch with views to the rolling hills and vines was a great way to enjoy our holiday.

“Great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

My wife and I had a few nights on Waiheke in May for her birthday. Some friends of ours caught the ferry over from the city to meet us for lunch. We had called in for a drink and a look around the day before our lunch date. The atmosphere is a mixture of rustic charm and a warm vantage point from which to soak up the vineyard vistas. The staff were welcoming, charming, engaging and went out of their way to attend to our needs.
The menu and wine lists are filled with options to suit almost every taste. Some might say not cheap, but the quality of the food and wine combined with the excellent service and great atmosphere makes great value for money in my humble opinion.
My wife and I are conformed fan's and we will definitely be returning.

“Stunning place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We had a vineyard tour & lunch here for our conference in May 13 and it was a gorgeous place. The food was delicious as was the wine.

The views are just brilliant overlooking the vineyards.

Great staff also.

Its been a while since we lunched here. Had mains of Snapper and Eye Filet. Both dishes excellent. Service was very efficient, polite and advice well placed too. Had a lovely meal despite rain pelting down outside. We will be back, especially when next we have guests!
