Just had a fantastic lunch at Casita Miro. Everything from the beautiful setting, the welcoming atmosphere, the friendly and knowledge staff and the incredible food and wine, this is a must do experience if you are visiting Waiheke Island. Thank you Cat and Clare for a wonderful afternoon.

Everything about his place is superb.

The views, service and wine are outstanding but the wonderful owner Cat and the delicious food make this place very special.

Don't miss this great opportunity to experience Kiwi friendship and food. A rare treat.

“Excellent in every aspect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

I visited Casita Miro as part of an NZ Groupon deal in 2012. Amazing food, amazing wine, amazing venue. An experience I will never forget. We did tapas and wine tasting whilst here and I came back with more coffee and wine than customs would let me home with. Beautiful grounds and the staff couldn't be more helpful or more informed about the wine we were tasting. Beautiful. I can't wait to come back one day!

“Casita Miro you stole my heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

If you don't get a chance to go to Casita Miro then your life wont be complete - I felt I was in another country, another world - literally Alice in wonderland down the rabbit hole to another dimension where things are so much more beautiful than the everyday day life.
The service - AMAZING
The food - SUPERB
The ambiance - UNMISSABLE
The cost - SO REASONABLE
The wine - DELICIOUS
The setting - OUT OF THIS WORLD

If I could love a place like you can love a human being, then I would marry Casita Miro - you stole my heart
