We visited Soljans and had a lovely lunch on Easter Saturday. When we arrived we were put in the outside area, which we had requested, but there were some very noisy children so we asked the waitress if we could move to the inside area which was quieter. She was very accommodating and we had a lovely table, fabulous food, good service and good company with some friends who joined us. We will definitely be making this one of our favourite restaurants to visit.

We had a set menu for a Xmas lunch for work, was a beautiful menu. Everyone happy with their meals and free wine tasting. A beautiful setting and gardens.

We stopped here for a fantastic lunch on our Celebrity Cruises shore excursion out of Auckland. Celebrity, posh line that it is, always seems to know where to take their guests for an excellent meal, representative of the area, and Soljans definitely measured up! Soljans produces excellent wines, and has an interesting family history. We were taken on an informative tour of the winery, before our meal. There were several salads and main dishes, all fresh, with complex flavor profiles. The pavlova for dessert was close to, if not in fact the best, one that we have had, and on our holiday, we had at least six different versions of the famous New Zealand dessert. Excellent facilities, very friendly staff, highly recommend!

We frequently drive past Soljans and I have always been interested to try it out, but they only operate a brunch.lunch menu so it never suited us.

Recently when driving past I noticed a special Valentines dinner package for $82 per head so I quickly booked to try it out.

There were a limited, but a good selection, of entrees (2) and mains (3-4) and desert was like a tasting platter. Tables set with clean crisp linen and a flower ours was dead, (hopefully not a bad omen)

Food was average, and for the price think they could of stepped it up a bit or reduce the price to around $60-$75 a head.
