Enjoyed a Waiheke Stormy with a lovely sampling of lamb from Chef Hayden. Can not express more the high level of service and personal touch from this experience. Coming from two foodies this was truly a perfect way to enjoy our island moment!

It's in Oneroa - the main town area closest to the ferry (Matiatia - not the car ferry at Kennedy Point). You can walk into town in 15-20min or there are taxis and buses at the ferry and in town you can grab.
