“A fun experience with Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We love going to the Ohinemuri Winery - we usually go there when we are in the area.
The wines are good and you can taste them at a reasonable price and you get a good amount.
We love the food though - it's always been excellent - such a surprise is the excellent standard of food for the location. We love it and we will be back.

“Great spot shame about the service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Drove 2 hours from Auckland for a family lunch and have been here before. Great location, lovely spot to sit and while a few hours away drinking local wines.

However, on this occasion we ordered and the meal arrived over an hour! later (we were told it would be slower as a lot of people arrived at the same time but an hour is a LONG wait.) Food was average but for the prices you would expect something a little more wow.

The owner came over several times and make silly and unnecessary "joking" comments to my family that just further distracted from what should have been a lovely lunch.

One other point is that they have a dog and cat wandering around the outdoor are which is fine with me, however the dog was quite dirty and smelly which seems inappropriate for an eating area?

Sorry to say that it was a disappointment this time and will see about finding somewhere else to have our next get together.
