This place has a lot of great things to offer, must try and visit. The vineyard is a wonderful site, perfect for having good food and wine.

We had lunch at The Shed Te Motu on a warm but windy afternoon. The restaurant is in a simple shed with rustic wooden tables. There are no spectacular views as in similar Waiheke vineyards, but the welcome was warm-hearted and we felt at home....More

This restaurant would hold its own against its peers in Auckland and the world. Simple but exquisite cooking. Short well curated wine list and pairings. If you can, book a table for the Saturday dinner. Great lunch spot as well.

Food was refined and incredible. The staff was very professional and friendly - the best on the island. Wines were great. Both chicken liver and chocolate mousses were out of this world (did not eat them together!). Highly recommend doesn't seem to do it justice.
