We were lucky to get in as it was a busy day so do book! We had a platter and the tasting wines. All very pleasant.

Views and ambiance are great. Imagine a quiet bottle of wine soaking it in on a sunny day would be tops. Unfortunately we ordered the pricey pizza. Dough and sauce with a small splattering of ingredients. Did complain when asked how the meals were and...after a slight challenge did the right thing and refunded which is a credit to the managers desire for customer satisfaction. Handled pleasantly and I’m sure a more memorable pizza awaits the next customer.More

Poor service. Rude and unfriendly people. Expensive wine and no variety. Basically nothing exciting to visit.

We found this place by good luck while passing through and seeing a sign saying they stopped the tastings and food at 3pm, thought we may have missed the opportunity. Fortunately they had decided to stay open longer as we were one of a few...parties that stopped in. We enjoyed a wine paddle tasting of four of their local wines and a blue cheese and walnut pizza as someone leaving said their pizzas were great. We enjoyed both the wine and pizza although the pizzas were not overly large or cheap, the wine tasting we thought was fair value. Definitely worth the stop.More

We have visited Mercury Bay winery years ago and had a wonderful experience, and were looking forward to another great evening there and to pick up some wines. However we made it only as far as the car park! The soggy paddock that is reserved...for customer parking had another car manoeuvring as we arrived, so we went around them and nearly buried the van in the wet, we then parked on the berm in the only dry spot. As we got ready to visit the winery, a disgruntled gentleman who we believe was the owner, had a hissy fit over our parking attempts and was so rude to us that we simply got back in the vehicle and left. We kept driving down to the beach and found a lovely spot on the grass watched the sunset and cracked a bottle of red, it was a lovely evening and next time we will bring a picnic. Save yourself the hassle and cost the view is better two minutes down the road!More

The pizzas are FANTASTIC!!!! The pizza base is stunning. The pizzas are rich in terms of ingredients. A tiramisu for dessert concluded a lovely lunch with a beautiful view

Stopped here on a whim and so glad we did. Had a relaxing flight of reds (ended up buying 3 bottles) and some nibbles. Great view and relaxing.

Spectacular views. We booked through google. When we arrived we were told our table was number 5 but not shown to our table. I asked the girl where it was and she said round there still didn’t show us to our table. We went to...order a platter but they are only available at lunch. Pizza’s were delicious but took a while. We tried to order coffee but was told the machine was broken and not offered anything else. Just some training for staff would go a long way.More

Lovely views but very limited evening menu only woodfire pizzas and they close at 7/8pm?! The pizza was good but it was a bit of a wait - albeit with a nice aspect. When we asked for some water for the table we were told...to get it ourselves. Platters sounded good but only available at lunchtimes.More

I was really surprised in finding the owner is Italian (from Sardinia) and the guy that makes pizzas is originally from Rome. Best pizza in NZ so far.
