Great location and a lovely setting for lunch, tasted some very nice wines, staff friendly and food was really good although we did feel that the Charcuterie board could have had a bit more to it but the lamb cigars were delicious. Also have the same opinion as another reviewer about the marked up price of wine while dining very disappointing really as everything else was lovely.

Most fabulous setting. The vineyard was gorgeous and building beautiful. We had been recommended to go here by our host and it was a fantastic experience.

The staff were very welcoming and the food speedy despite the place being busy. Idyllic setting.

The winery wasn't too easy to find, follow the signs to Bridge Pa. We had lunch at Te Awa & the food was amazing. The setting of the restaurant is lovely with outdoor seating in beautiful gardens. The service was excellent. We were very impressed with this restaurant & would definitely return.

I visited Te Awa with three friends for lunch. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. The food was sensational, wine exquisite and the service and ambience perfect for a summer winery lunch in Hawkes Bay. Keep up the good work Te Awa.

I was with a couple of friends, and we shared their recommended 5 plates for $70.00 for lunch, and every item was beautifully presented, deliciously cooked and just the right amount for three.

My only gripe is that they have a surcharge of 100% on the wine we could have bought (in fact I did) at the Cellar door.

This practice is not a good look for the NZ wine industry. The perqs of eating in vineyards should be the price of their wine. But it's a nasty , growing habit to add huge profit to wine that hasn't travelled, or had to be stored etc.

We've a massive wine industry so let's not lose sight of it's potential for good rather than slipping into the "it's overpriced" mistake, else tourists will drink their way around other countries where it's not so exorbitantly priced, and forget about visiting ours!
