“Awesome Venue, Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2010

We recently took our staff there for a belated Xmas party and all 11 of our staff were blown away by the quality of service, delicious food and stunning setting. It is not surprising they won a major award for their service. We would certainely recommend this venue and will return.

“One word says it all - Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2010

On a little, isolated island in paradise, there is a hidden secret - Cable Bay Vineyards and Restaurant. It is worth going there just for the view. I was fortunate to be there when New Zealand artist Paul Dibble had a display of brilliant bronze sculptures set up, one of which is still there, and this too is worth the visit. The wine bar is lovely to sit and sip on fine local wines, and unwind, before being waited on in perhaps New Zealand's best Silver Service restaurant. The food is superb, the staff lovely, and the setting is simply to die for. Go there!

“Great food with wonderful views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2010

While in Auckland, we took a day trip to Waiheke Island. One of our first stops was lunch at Cable Bay.

Usually, places with great views have mediocre food but this place is definitely the exception to the rule. The food was excellent though you do pay the price for it. We had oysters for an appetizer and they were amazingly fresh - our server told us that they were caught just that morning.

I had the Hawk Bay lamb which was cooked to perfection while other members of my family enjoyed the catch of the day and the beef short ribs.

The service was attentive and excellent (probably helps that we were one of only two groups there braving the rainy weather). However, once the rain passed we were treated to a truly glorious view of the bay and the view of Auckland from our table.

NB:
- They charge for the bread so lay off ordering extra if you don't want to pay
- If you dine at the restaurant, you get a free wine tasting. I suggest going for the wine tasting first in order to decide which wine you would like to drink with your lunch / dinner.

“Dinner for two”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2010

Great location and very nice place to eat. Not the cheapest place to eat on the island but if you want the best then this it. A little tip. Make sure you arrive 30 min prior to sunset.

There is a separate place down stairs called the wine library which can seat 12 people. Now this place is amazing. It has its own cellar and its very dark, you walk down some tight concrete stairs then you come to your own private dark rich setting. Great place.
