We enjoyed eating here on a Saturday night, and would definetely recommend this restaurant to others! So welcoming, friendly, and offering a fun way to dine (tapas style/shared plates), this is THE place to go to in Taupo. So pleased we chose to dine here.....see you again in the future! Thanks

We came for lunch and then come back for dinner! Great choice of wines, food was just delish! We shared the plates but it was hard to share equally as the food was so nice. We didn't leave a crumb. We met Head Chef Reginaldo who made an effort to pass by the tables and check everyone was happy with their food. Great to meet you. Over all really enjoyed our lunch and dinner, my thoughts are this is the Best restaurant in Taupo.

Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed our shared meal at Vine Eatery. Food was delicious, service was great, atmosphere was warm and friendly. A great place to go for a casual meal out. Selection of wines was impressive. Would love to go again.

Went to the Vine Eatery based on the feedback on Trip Advisor and wasn't dissapointed. Had a chat wtih the owner who we recognised from his Scenic Cellar days. We had lunch which consisted of entree size plates of food which sat in the middle of the table and you helped yourself. Like other contributors we were advised on two plates per person but found 3 between us was fine. They still had a good collection of wines which you could by at shop price and then drink at your table probably about 1/2 the price or less you would normally pay for a bottle of wine with your meal. Although I have rated it Very Good it is on the edge of Excellent.

A shared meals is a great way to dine for lunch and this place has a great selection that is out of the ordinary. This is the place to dine if you like trying something different. We shared the crumbed squid rings and the prawn dish, both were out of this world. They recommend two dished per person but as my wife had experienced these dishes before, we opted for just the two between us which was adequate for us. This establishment serves fine wines at great prices and also has a local boutique beer, also at a good price. We will continue to dine here as the food, drink, staff and atmosphere are very enjoyable.
