Relaxed with professional and prompt service
Mouth watering food, which will ensure we return.
We visited for lunch on Saturday 26 April and only out of curiosity after passing their sign on the road between Warkworth and Snells Beach.
We were greeted warmly and invited to sit anywhere we wished, so we sat on the covered deck next to the window with panoramic north facing views over the vineyard and rolling countryside.
After a briefing by co-owner Gary Heaven, we ordered a bottle of "Mostly Merlot 2010" which was full bodied and so good we brought two bottles as we left.
Our meal included the crispy shredded calamari entrée which was clearly fresh, with a beautiful soft texture, presented well and a generous serving size. For our main meals we enjoyed the Marino lamb medallions and the special of locally sourced Buffalo fillet. Both meats were beautifully presented and more importantly of an excellent standard. We will try the desserts next time.
We highly recommend this restaurant and we will return for that special occasion, or just to buy a couple of bottles of wine.
Thank you Mahurangi River Winery for a lovely experience.
