“Fantastic Gourmet Food”
Review of Go Vino

Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
Description: Go Vino has taken the Spanish concept of tapas and evolved it for a New Zealand environment. Go Vino's shared plates (Kaizen dishes) are bigger and more complex than traditional tapas. The dishes also feature ingredients and flavours distinct to New Zealand. Drawing on quality seasonal produce Chef Gabriel Moraes creates a Kaizen menu which changes every few months. Perfectly designed dishes can be enjoyed as a snack or as a complete meal over the course of an evening. Please be aware that we are not located directly in Whitianga, but in Cooks Beach, a short ferry ride and taxi away.

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent location, what more can you say. The food was to die for and wish we could have tried more.

“The wonderful food just kept on coming”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We ordered the tasting plate which was in effect about 10 plates for 2 to share. All seafood as my dining partner does not eat meat. Each more delicious than the last.

“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

What a surprise to find a restaurant of this quality at Cooks Beach. Top marks for the food and top marks for the presentation, if only I'd had my camera!
The idea of a shared plate is a great way of tasting a range of dishes. Dessert was memorable, especially the shot that tastes like chocolate cake.. Dine here and you won't be disappointed.
