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.

The main thing I want to get out of the way is that there were issues with our order resulting in a delayed time for our main BUT the staff comped the cost of my tasting, my toddlers meal and my glass of wine -...their compensation was totally appropriate and their attitude was very reasonable and they handled it with good customer service. My issue was the food. I was expecting more based on their reputation but the meal quality was just a bit underwhelming. For a 2 course al a carte the portion sizes were quite small - fine if this was a multi course gastro meal, but this wasn't. The wine was lovely, best on the island, but the price point is insanely high for what it is. The location is lovely. A real mix of pros and consMore

Wonderful wines to taste in a beautiful setting on Waiheke just a short ferry from Auckland. Such a beautiful and relaxing spot we stayed for lunch. Wonderful way to work off the jet lag!

We visited Mudbrick on a sunny lunch/ afternoon for a wine tasting. Everything about the location oozes class from the service, ambience, views and of course the fabulous wine. We had an excellent wine-tasting experience, as the attentive staff, who clearly knew their wine, explained...the wine in detail. Mudbrick is the highlight of our trip to the island. The food looked amazing but we were too busy enjoying the fabulous selection of drinks. Well done Mudbrick 5/5!More

The venue is absolutely beautiful with gorgeous grounds - we loved it. We had the set menu for lunch in the bistro ($109 for three small courses) but were disappointed with our meals which were quite ordinary. Such a shame as we'd been expecting something...rather more special.More

Upon arriving on Waiheke Island by ferry, we boarded a Hop-On Hop-Off Explorer bus. We had a plan to avoid traveling the entire island roundtrip in order to quickly reach Mudbrick Vineyard, which had been highly recommended by our United flight attendant. We got off...the bus at stop #2, walked across the road to stop #14 and then reversed course to ride back in the direction of the ferry to stop #15...and thereby also missed most of the crowd from our ferry. It worked perfectly. Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant was perched atop a hill with beautiful views. Choosing to dine in their formal, more elegant lunch venue was an easy decision, and we were seated at a wonderful window table. We both settled on the Two Course A La Carte option with choice of entree & main. Scallop Crudo paired with the 2022 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was light and refreshing, and the Merino Lamb Loin paired with their 2021 Mudbrick Velvet was heavenly. The attentive, friendly service and splendidly-presented dishes made for a perfect experience. We finished lunch and departed the restaurant just as it began to fill up with faces from our ferry. A stop to enjoy some additional wine tasting easily managed to result in an even more expensive outing but a thoroughly worthwhile and satisfying one.More

Had a very pleasant lunch and tasting in very nice surroundings here. I wonder though if it is as good as it thinks it might be. It was all a little rushed, I felt like a number and some of the menu was not available...on the day. Left slightly underwhelmed.More

Chaotic in the rain. No seated tasting. You have to go to the counter for each one. While I enjoyed the wines, I felt they were over priced compared to others on the island of similar quality. Grounds are pretty. If you could sit outside...the experience might be better, however the weather prevented that, we did not try the restaurant.More

We had the most delicious 3 course meal. It was delivered by our very friendly waiter who was very knowledgeable about all the dishes. The whole evening was one of the most enjoyable experiences at any restaurant we have been to topped off by unforgettable...views. My favourite Pinot Gris is Mudbrick by far.More

idyllic and memorable lunch. From the spectacular view to the mouthwatering food Mudbrick was superior in every way. We loved lunch so much we came back for dinner at the sister restaurant Archive. Leave enough time to walk the property and catch the sunset if...you can. Go for the foccacia and marinated olives which may seem ancillary but in some ways were the highlight.More

I had very nice chef’s tasting lunch at the Mudbrick restaurant. The service was very personal yet not overbearing. The views, coupled with the great food and wine made it very memorable meal. I was not rushed through the service which I throughly appreciated. Caroline...and Doreen took very good care of me and I appreciate the hard work they put in. Thank you Caroline and Doreen! You can tell the operation is well run. Would highly recommend to all!More
