Stunning food in a beautiful setting!

What an amazing hidden gem! The ambiance of this restaurant is lovely, they had the fire stoked up on a stormy winter day and had us seated nice and close to it. The decor was luxurious and huge attention to detail had been paid when creating the space. We went for lunch and the service and food was faultless. We were greeted and seated by a lovely gentleman who provided top class service the entire meal. Our drinks were brought out promptly and our orders taken. Wonderfully warm bread with hummus and oil arrived while we waited for our entrees. The entrees came quickly after and my mushroom risotto was wonderfully hot, rich and full of flavour, husband order 1/2doz oysters and they kindly made half of them natural and the other kilpatrick for him to try. I ordered the confit duck for main and was not disappointed, it was beautifully cooked and fell away from the bone and the sides and sauce that accompanied it were on point, the whole dish was spectacular and left my mouth watering and wanting more! Husband got the beef ribeye, which was beautifully cooked, it came with mash and some brand and was a delicious meal for a cold winters day.
Shared the fruit custard tart and crumble and icecream for dessert, which I could barely fit in, and they were both delicious and a perfect way to end the meal.
I will most definitely be back and telling everyone I know about it!

Went to Vin Alto with partner for 5 year anniversary. Beautiful location, friendly staff. If it wasn't for the decor/location or the friendly waitress this would have been a 1 star experience. The food offering was a shambles. Small portions, overcooked dry fish, a cheeseboard with only one cheese accompanied by a bowl of frozen vegetables in vinegar, a side salad with no dressing. Simply disappointing. The toughest pill to swallow was the price. it's daylight robbery that a restaurant that uses poor ingredients, and who's staff can't deep fry fish properly can charge some of the highest prices I've come across in Auckland. i get that its a location so it's more common to expect slightly higher prices - but this is just not acceptable.

Feedback like this is important, and there's always the chance i caught them on a bad night. I'd love to give it a second chance as we know restaurants need all the help they can get at the moment. I hope this is taken on board.

A truly magic dining experience

Gorgeous Mediterranean setting, stunning food, great service and superb range of drinks. We had a fantastic afternoon. The food was some of the best I've had, between our group of 10 we had a good cross section of the menu and the presentation and flavour of the food was awesome. Totally recommend this gorgeous winery. Would be a great place for a wedding or other function.

A great evening
Feb 2021
WOW! What a great night. We taxied as it was our wedding anniversaries (4 of us) and from the moment we arrived, it was a great experience. Great cocktails to start, we sat outside in the courtyard overlooking rolling hills and enjoyed some bread and cheese to start. We shared a scallop and pork belly entree and some lettuce cups. Main courses choices were lamb, beef and duck and they were all lovely. Great wine list, loads of choice. Our waitress Harriet was amazing, very attentive and lots of fun. Definitely recommend this place for a special occasion, worth every dollar.

Wow after having such terrible service at another Clevedon restaurant recently, this was so refreshing. The welcome as soon as we walked in set up the ambience for the evening. Fabulous food, matched by excellent service, with smiling staff. Will definitely be back.

Boutique winery dedicated to the production of Italian style wines & food
Dec 2018 • Friends
A beautiful winery just 35 minutes drive south of Auckland, we enjoyed Sunday lunch in the olive tree lined courtyard overlooking vineyards, herds of deer and views back to the city. We enjoyed 4 courses for $78 a head from the italian style BBQ menu. Probably not suitable for vegetarians. But a very romantic spot to enjoy with partners - a popular spot for weddings!
