Description: Welcome to our very own take on rural wine shed dining, nestled in the very vines that produce our award-winning reds, overlooking the Onetangi Valley. Our team work a special kind of magic, drawing on fresh produce from our ever-expanding gardens to produce honest-to-goodness, gutsy and thoroughly modern food, packed full of flavour. We grow ingredients onsite and like to shop locally. Either seated inside or outside enjoying the sunshine, you will enjoy our uniquely relaxed, modern-rustic atmosphere.

Celebrated our anniversary here at The Shed. We had the most amazing experience. Started with wine tasting to sample what the vineyard can offer. Enneke provided the most amazing service, with her vast knowledge of the wine from Te Motu. From wine tasting to dinner service, it was a very memorable experience! Also, shout out to Brianne too for being an awesome maître D.

Highly recommended-definitely would go there again!

Firstly, our server Jess was amazing. She went to such great effort to explain the whole style and concept of the menu and their chef and also where they source and grow their ingredients. She gave us great personal recommendations for dishes which were perfect and we were well looked after the whole time. She is a star! The setting it beautiful and the food is really well thought out. Order a little extra as the portion aren’t big but they are so delicious and worth it. The wines are really nice and complement the dishes well. This place was really relaxed and peaceful which is just what we wanted. Also they have a super cute dog so what more could you want?

Our table of 9 adults plus a young person and baby had the most enjoyable lunch for my sisters birthday. Jess, our waitperson/host looked after us so well and advised us on the menu. All of the food, and we had pretty much a bit of everything, was tasty and interesting. Our young person was made a delicious pasta dish which she scoffed! Totally recommend this venue, we had a lovely day.

We visited the restaurant after a recommendation. I had called ahead and asked for a nice table in the nice inside dining area and they said they could accommodate they completely ignored this request - although upon arrival making a big fuss of us waiting for our special table (it was the least special table in the restaurant? And they seated us late). Another reason I called ahead it was my partners birthday and although they made a fuss of other customers and their birthday they completely ignored us? Really bizarre.
The food took 3 hours to be served and they missed out items on our menu, it was served up and not explained so we didn't know who or what dish we were having, really really poor service and we paid $900 for the privilege of 4 of us to be really treated like second class citizens. This is a restaurant that focuses on catering to large parties, and the masses if your a smaller group watch out -they will disregard you! The only good thing, the staff were really pleasant despite being understaffed and pushed to the max.

Our recent trip to The Shed at Te Motu again lived up to the reputation we expect from this wonderful little gem on Waiheke Island. The food is very interesting, probably the most interesting on the island, and the service is really fantastic. Very knowledgeable people who know their food and wine. It’s also a lovely location with a newly refurbished outdoor area that would be great for families during the day, but it is also a lovely couples venue at night. Highly recommend this as a place to visit on Waiheke.
