Made the trip to Waiheke on the second day of our four-week New Zealand holiday and had the best meal of our entire trip in Tantalus. Quality and beautifully-presented food, charmingly served in attractive surroundings.

Bagged the four leather armchairs downstairs by the fire and settled in for a Sunday session. Such an awesome vibe with yummy food and great cocktails.

Waiheke has to beTHE gastro-hot spot of the Southern Hemisphere. Only 92km2 (and only about 40% of this is populated) and around 8,000 people. It has 30 boutique wineries and (by my reckoning) 10 world class restaurants.... and Tanatlus is the latest addition and arguably...More
