There is no better view from any venue in New Plymouth and the food is excellent. The service however is amougst the worst I have ever experianced.This review is based on many visits. Expect to wait some time before you are seated, to have to go to the bar to ask for serivce and even though it is a winery don't expect any of the young inexperianced staff to know what the difference is between a Merlot and a pinotage. Such a shame this venue could be amazing with the right staff.

Great views and food very good, but think it lacks atmosphere. Also seating plan is not good, having to sit and hear other peoples kids really means that this place wouldn't be any good if you were celebrating somehitng like a wedding anniversary.

My partner and I went here after experiencing a dreadful lunch at Waiau Estate. We found it to be a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and platter. The staff were extremely friendly and the atmosphere was totally relaxing. We look forward to returning soon.

Well, surroundings quite imppressive and a somewhat pretentious menu, but the pervading memory is of NOISE. Too much hard reflective surfaces magnified the clash and clatter of crockery and echoing shouts. No, I would not go back
