Had a very enjoyable lunch at Omata Estate. There platter was excellent for the two of us and My wife loved the Rose wine. We had a nice spot near the pizza oven with beautiful view over the vineyard and sea. Also enjoyed the short easy walk to the point through lovely forest. Would be excellent except we didn't really enjoy the staff talking very loudly about what food box they were using and their general personal lives - quite intrusive.

Visited for lunch based on other reviews and were not disappointed! From the time we walked through the restaurant door where we were greeted/welcomed by a friendly and unpretentious young man until we left, service from all staff was friendly and efficient.
We enjoyed (shared) a pizza (genuine wood fired) which was large and tasty, a sweet platter and a couple of glasses of wine. The view is simply amazing, the rose lovely (chilled beautifully)!! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this relaxed but professional place and would definitely return if we come back to Russell.

We dropped by to try their red wines. Both red wines tasted were reasonable.

The views were magnificent looking over the sea and the smell of cooking pizza resulted in having lunch there. Sitting outside with nice wine, great pizza and fantastic views made a lovely experience. Staff were efficient and friendly.

A most enjoyable experience.

The view was amazing. The food was delicious, but most of all, the service was absolutely outstanding! We were a large group, but the service never slowed down. They were courteous, they were very accommodating. Well done 👍
