Description: Waipara Springs Winery and Cafe is located in the heart of the Waipara Valley. Planted in the early 1980's the vineyard contains some of the oldest vines in the valley providing the entirely estate grown wines with a depth and intensity that only old vines can produce.

We also have a Cellar Club which provides great benefits for members and invitations to special events.

Pleasant drive out, went on abit of a cold day, so sat under cover, which was still warm with the heaters. (have sat in the outdoor garden on a sunny day which was wonderful)
Good choice of foods, nicely presented, good portion size. platters are probably the best i've tasted, good selection and reasonable price.

This is a real gem, one we haven't visited for some time, but the passing of time has in no diminished the enjoyment of a dropping in for a refreshing coffee and re-vitalising snack. Such a lovely outlook onto well-manicured gardens and sparkling fountains. Great coffee, friendly service and scrumptious food.

We had tried to get lunch at Pegasus Bay but, on a sunny Sunday lunchtime, it was fully booked, so we were recommended to come here. We shared a seafood platter, which was rather disappointing overall, with green-shell mussels coated in a synthetic sweet chilli sauce and an equally synthetic cocktail sauce for the prawns. That said, the tempura prawns were excellent. Tables are set in the garden but the view is nothing special, unlike that at Pegasus Bay. Service was friendly and efficient.

Went with family on a gorgeous warm Sunday for lunch, the staff were very friendly and attentive but not overbearing, which I appreciate!

All our meals were excellent, we had the lamb souvalaki, honey chicken salad, sirloin steak with mushrooms and a fantastic steak open sandwich and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

The restaurant has a really good family friendly feel, with plenty of nice outdoor seating for enjoying the sun and the absolutely delicious wine (recommend the Premo Riesling - yum!). They seem to cater to larger groups as well.

Definitely with the trip out to stunning Waipara!
