We have eaten at Te Whau over the past 10 years with wonderful memories with family and friends and we still have no complaints.

Tony, Moira, Merlot and Malbec (the family cats meet & greet guests) make all the difference to the experience.

Stunning sea views, extensive wine selection (the Te Whau Chardonnay 2012 is quite something). To add to the mix, they're growing their own vegetation for use in the restaurant too which is a plus using local produce.

I would like to see more dishes that cater to coeliacs with nut allergies though, which is difficult for a foodie who could once eat nuts and gluten!

You won't regret visiting Te Whau, an experience in more ways than one. Well done, keep up the good work, we'll be back as always.

As soon as I had finished my appetizer I wanted to re order it. And then my meal was equally great. The scallops are a must and the wine is excellent (although pricey). A good bottle was $100NZ. Beautiful views, friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Highly recommended.

Gorgeous lunch with incredible food and wine,overlooking the most stunning view.
This was the absolute stand out of our stay on Waiheke.
The owner Tony, took the time to chat to us about the wine he produces.
A delight to see someone so passionate about what they do!!

We had a great lunch here - delicious food and friendly staff. We watch the chef go out to the restaurant's garden to pick herbs. When he came back in, he showed us what he picked and explained how he'd be using it. Beautiful views looking towards the water and - of course - terrific wine.

Great views, great service and they let you use their wi-fi. I only went there for a coffee, didn't get to taste the food. It all looked pretty good though. From the cafe you can see the island from the top, and view is absolutely stunning.
