“Best spot ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

Like and old country pub, big lawn, games for the kids, right on the beach - but with the best quality wines on the island. Hard to get to, but well worth the effort.

“Gorgeous winery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

My wife and I visited the Man O' War winery in February 2012. We thought it was a gem - in our view the best winery on Waiheki Island. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The wines on offer were excellent and tasting was free (most other wineries on Waikiki Island charge you). We both had platters which were delicious. The view out over the Man O' War bay is lovely and peaceful. The only downside to this winery is that it is at the far Eastern side of the island and you need a car to get there.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

the MoW wine is excellent, the lunch/cheese platters are just the thing after a trip south from Stony Batter exploring the battery tunnels & gunnery, the views, the history and speaking with the wonderful volunteers who keep this part of Waiheke Island alive.. don't miss the whole experience

“Great views and atomsphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Called in on our way around the island heading for Lunch at another winery. Wine sampling is free, which is good. Staff were helpful. Someone told us the platters are great and good value, did see someone with one as we were leaving and they looked good. On a fine sunny day it would be fantastic sitting on the front lawn, sipping good wine and watching the boats go by!
