Great atmosphere, fine wine and good food. What more could you ask for. Book first as some days closed at present.

We had a wonderful meal at Go Vino. They have a tapas type menu, but also have a good choice of a few mains should you not want to go down the tapas route. We started with the most heavenly cheese brulee. We both enjoyed...our mains and desserts were great. Definitely advise booking.More

We didn’t read any description of the restaurant before we came and we were very pleasantly surprised. Our group of three included two non-meat eaters so we chose the vegetarian and seafood options. They were all very nice. An eclectic mix of flavours. I’d happily...return to try some of the other dishes. The staff were friendly and attentive.More

Amazing food, lots of GF and vegetarian options. The blue cheese dessert was a work of art! The menu is in sections: from the garden, from the sea and from the farm so easy to find what you like, the hard part is making your...choice!More

Simply superb. A restaurant that strives to be all things for all people...and absolutely delivers. We went for the tasting menu with wine and loved every single course.... felt totally looked after. Best of all his, this didn't detract from the tables near by that...were having a casual dinner or the famous Sunday Roast.More

Its the old story. Over-promising (Marketing +) and under delivering. We dined the other night and found the dining experience very average. The food items/menu sounded great, but that's where it stopped. We had the smoked dumplings - the fish tasted like old smoked fish....The whole fish was, in places over cooked and in other parts raw, not to mention the Schezwan spices and tasted like a microwaved jumbled mess of warm something I cannot explain, but not great and not what I would call Schezwan spices. The Falafel Salad was okay but wasn't the best ever. Dessert was a mess, I had the Popcorn Ice Cream, which was just over frozen and iced-up vanilla ice cream and Popcorn on the side. Service: I know it is Cooks beach but the dress standard was like they had just come from a surf and thrown on a pair of old cut off jean shorts, desperately needing a belt. Service standard was not good and they seems to need training on how to serve and clear plates. Poor wine service/sales resulted in only a glass on wine each. Sure it was busy but sorry no excuse. Sorry but... people need to knowMore

Excellent waiter who was knowledgeable with their menu. Every dish that arrived exceed all expectations when you are dining in a small town.

A few years back I lived at Cooks Beach and enjoyed Go Vino then and I can say its only got better. The food is fantastic, the equal to anything you might get at the very best high end restaurants in the big cities, in...fact it might put a few to shame. The service is brilliant and the wine list is extensive with a great many interesting labels. Wicked cocktails, try the Classic Margarita or Passionfruit Mojito. In all, a great place to dine and we will be back for sure.More

Oh My Gosh!! What a hidden gem. Walked past 4 times thinking ...nah. But tonight we took a chance and are so pleased we did. The food is the best we've had on the Coromandel. The service was awesome and the wine selection 😲, plus...the rest of the drinks list. Do not overlook this place.More
