Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow - just wow. We absolutely loved our visit here. All staff members we came into contact with were very friendly and welcoming. We really felt like everyone loved working here. We sat outside under an umbrella, enabling us to enjoy the gorgeous view on...such a beautiful day. The food was delicious - we even got to try some figs freshly picked from their trees. The wines we tried were also excellent. As I said, absolutely perfect. Thank you for making our visit here and to Russell so wonderful.More

Great wine and pizza at Omata. We were on the boat tour of the Bay of Isles and jumped off in Russell, caught a taxi to Omata, and had an amazing time. Delicious and the atmosphere and setting make it an experience.

Amazing boutique winery. We had a tasting flight of wines and shared a gourmet kitchen platter. The wines are excellent- loved the pinot gris! Took a bottle with us. The platter was delicious providing a mix of cheeses, meats, antipasto, dips etc. The kitchen also...offers wood fired pizzas and they looked amazing as well. The view from the tables is wonderful as the vines are close and water view can be seen. A delicious lunch.More

If you want the most idyllic setting to enjoy a wood fired pizza and a glass of top quality wine, look no further than Omata Estate. It is perched on a ridge line with the most picturesque view over to Pahia. Go on a good...clear day and just take it all in. The food, the wine, the service and the setting are superb. To top it all off you can purchase their wonderful wines on your way out.More

We had a wonderful lunch at Omata Vineyard. The views are simply outstanding and the service and food were equally amazing. We absolutely loved all of their wines too. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I had lunch here for my 65th birthday. The food was wonderful, particularly the seafood sharing platter. Although we didn’t have a pizza, the ones that we saw looked very appetising, straight out of the wood-fired pizza oven. The location couldn’t have...been better with splendid views over the vines and across the bay to Paihia. Finally, the service was both attentive and professional. I highly recommend a lunch here. We will return!More

Wonderful water views across the vineyard, especially on a sunny day. The seafood platter for 2 was great, very fresh with lots of variety - highly recommended.! You definitely won’t leave hungry. Tip: If you order the $16 tasting flight of 4 wines (2 whites,...a rose and a red), you’ll get $10 off if you decide to buy a bottle of wine to take home with you. This wasn’t immediately obvious when we visited, and we only found out by accident.More

Such a beautiful location to spend time eating great food with drinking amazing wines and great service as well. I went midweek which meant the team could spend time discussing the wines and the vineyard with us as I can imagine it would be very...busy on the weekend. The shared platters are delicious and plentiful, the pizzas are tasty, could do with a bit more toppings and the sweet plate are just perfect to share to end the meal. The buildings and grounds are incredible and when the gardenia hedge is in flower would be so pretty. We had a wonderful afternoon and highly recommendMore

My wife and I recently shared The Omata Kitchen Platter with a bottle of the estate Rose. The platter was varied in tastes with cheeses, meats, dips, crackers, bread etc - more than enough to share. The wine was excellent and made for a lovely...way to spend a relaxing afternoon enjoying the amazing views. Worth a visit.More
