Description: Situated over the Shaky Bridge that crosses the Manuherikia River, the Shaky Bridge Vineyard Cafe is a relaxing 10 minute walk from the Alexandra post office in the main business part of town. You can follow the river track or walk along Tarbert St until you see the signs for the Shaky Bridge. Located directly under Alaxeandra's infamous 'Clock on the hill', the Shaky Bridge Vineyard Cafe is easy to find and well worth your walk!

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Loved the outdoors area with vineyards and old stone buildings at the back and a view of the river at the front. The food was delicious and service good.

“Alexandra gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

A small cafe/bar restaurant near an historic suspension bridge. Nice food and they have tried to create an atmoshpere but I felt it was a bit clinical. Not that full but it seemed noisey.

“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

A very nice location along the river. The menu is different and extremely good. The lamb burger was outstanding! Outdoor seating was very pleasant and I enjoyed the Shaky Bridge pinot.
