Lovely location. Was here for a seminar Food was hit and miss, the main was okay but could have cooked better at home, but the desert was amazing. Would not return with family and friends.

I ordered the lunch scallops for $22. When it arrived, only 3 were on the plate. I understand alot of vineyards do not take cafe... More

Went down for lunch with friends and I guess my title above says it all. In addition the waitress (with an arrogant attitude) on our table was probably having a BAD day as; --she neglected or maybe I should say ignored out table completely until I was left with no choice but to complain --then again 2 of us ordered...

Firstly, the service was pleasant and friendly. The attendants were charmingly attentive and helpfull. The meal was presentable & tasty to the palate as were the wines which we carefully chose to accompany the meals. The atmosphere was delightful and the venue very charming. From our table we could see the vines. Being the beginning of Springtime the vines were... More

This cafe has a suitably complementing vineyard ambience.. Service is friendly and food - wine matching recommendations very well done. Food was delicious - scallops, lamb and kohu ice-cream desert 😀

Who would think this is so close to Auckland Airport, set in amongst the vines and gentle rolling slopes. The staff were very friendly and obliging and the food was very good. I can recommend the fettuccine.

Good food, good wine and good friends, perfect combination. Plus, a view of the beautiful vineyard. Reservation is necessary as the place was full on the Sunday that we were there. We even got a discount on our wine purchases. Very happy day indeed.

First stop on our latest wine tour. Started with the walking tour around the facilities, seeing how the wine is produced, stored and bottled. The tour was very informative, especially due to our wine tour guide 'John' from 'NZWINEPRO', who is easily the best wine tour operator in Auckland. He even used to run the walking tours at Villa Maria... More
