Lovely location with magnificent view of Cooks Beach. Good service but negated by lukewarm pizza with undercooked topping; and average salad.

We swung in on the off chance they had a table free and ended up spending an afternoon in the sun, gazing out over Mercury Bay, tasting wine and having a cheese board. Authentic, friendly staff and owner. Leave your stress behind and relax! Recommended.

We arrived early for our table after being told over the phone it would be ok and the man who greeted us seemed stressed and not at all happy. He reluctantly found us a table. The waitress was lovely, the food delicious and the wines...ok. I’d probably have enjoyed them more if our greeting had been more friendly. I wouldn’t go back.More

Very friendly service and a stunning setting. The pizzas were delicious- ordered the Margherita, Capricciosa and Napoli. Lovely wood fired flavours. Wouldn’t order the garlic bread again as far too salty and herby. Dessert was good - the best affogato and a delicious white chocolate...and pistachio semifreddo. Did the wine tasting and the Pinot noir was a hit. Highly recommend for a great lunch in a special setting. Will be back!More

Nice location and good wine but hostess was extremely rude and ruined the experience. Not sure what her problem was but we won’t be going back.

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
