During our wine tasting day, we stopped here for lunch. The food was outstanding (we had the hanger steak). Normally I’d never eat dessert at lunch but they have cheese plate with a candied plumb. It was amazing and well-worth it.

We had a three course pre-fixe fish dinner (only on fridays) at The Shed. Exquisite dishes and great wines to pair. Attentive and friendly service. Relaxed atmosphere set among the Te Motu vineyards. Only quibble was the lack of more dessert choices.
