Located in a beautiful location looking out over the vines. The small plates were superb. Can highly recommend the Celeriac Malfatti with Blue cheese, crispy pigs head, smoked venison tartare. The 2016 Rose is not on the menu but was wonderful.

Went for lunch and the food was divine, the service excellent and the wine POWERFUL. Definitely book in advance and be prepared for a little walk up the driveway of your not being dropped off at the door

Not a lot of tables so you must book. The food is tasty and well priced backed up with friendly service. Probably one of the better meals I have had on Waiheke.
