Fantastic food, amazing venue and best service in Auckland. Cant wait to come back again. The team always make us feel welcome. We have a special needs child and they have gone above and beyond to make sure our visit is as comfortable as possible. And then the food would have to be amongst the best there is in Auckland and Waiheke. Thanks again.

Green Light on first day of Red Light
Dec 2021
This is our 2nd visit to Tantalus for our Christmas Work Party. Last time we visited as part of a tour but this time we spent our entire time here and had lunch. Service was amazing from booking right through to our exit, with a great lunch! Was the first day of Traffic light red, but didn't feel like it everything went well and the team were very welcoming.

Please do "Trust the chef"
Dec 2021
Although we are local, this was our first visit to Tantalus, but it definitely won’t be our last.
The service was warm and impeccable from the moment we entered.
We chose to be surprised by their “trust the chef” menu and every course was a delight; full of vibrant local flavours. We left feeling satisfied, unlike other degustations we’ve had.
Every wine our waitress recommended to us (their own) was a perfect match.

Also of note – we were a little nervous because this was our first meal out since lockdown was lifted. They carried out all the COVID protocols beautifully, without anything dampening our experience.

They are setting the standard.

Tantalus is always my favourite part of visiting Waiheke. The food and atmosphere are unlike anywhere I've been before and the way they have thought of every last detail is so impressive.

We return to Tantalus Estate as often as our travel plans allow. The food, wine, beer, location and team are always outstanding.

A must on your visit to Waiheke!
May 2021 • Couples
I dream of the wine and spectacular food that is not only delicious but visually stunning. My partner and I spent a week on Waiheke and found ourselves back at Tantalus Estate multiple times. The staff were wonderful, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable too. We loved exploring the wetlands boardwalk, relaxing outdoors and even grabbing a pint at the brewery downstairs - it all just adds to the whole experience. This is a must winery stop when you are on the island - highly recommend making a reservation tho!

Excellent setting, wine and service.
May 2021
Was a busy day at Tantalus and at first the reception was a bit cold but once we grabbed a table for wine tasting the experience was amazing.

Mariano was our wine expert and he is like a wine poet. Full of information and a huge help in navigating the local Waiheke tasting flight. It was excellent. Would definitely recommend. Worth booking as this place is popular for a reason.
