A great time of day and time of year to visit. Fairly quite restaurant allowed us to have the pick of tables, so very special for our overseas family to spend two hours relaxing and enjoying a stunning selection of food and wine. Spectacular views back to the City with the sun flooding in. Hugely accommodating waiting team - we will be back!

I appreciated the flexibility of shifting the timing of our booking because we arrived a little later than expected. Winery was was very busy, crowded and noisy. There were a number of very drunk young people there. A group of young male patrons were so drunk – one was standing up with his pants down. I felt very embarrassed that I had suggested Cable Bay to my group. When we left the winery, and we went straight the ferry terminal. We were on the same ferry back to Auckland as the same young patrons at Cable Bay. They were very drunk, loud, rude, aggressive and obnoxious and causing trouble on the ferry. I feel that Cable Bay winery legally should not have continued to serve this group of intoxicated patrons, it was obvious when we sat down at our table that they had too much to drink, and the fact that they continued to be served by staff was not okay and contributed to the indecent exposure incident. The wine tasting was very crowded and the wine on offer was not very nice. It did not inspire our group to have any wine with our lunch. The food was great.

Such a great spot, it was fun walking up the short hill path to the restaurant. Had enough time for a quick wine tasting before a delicious lunch overlooking the harbour.

We booked a last minute Wine and Dine offer through Fullers and so glad we did. The experience was fantastic value! We chose Cable Bay as it had the best menu to suit our parties needs, Admittedly we thought as it was already on ‘offer’ we thought the food portions at Cable Bay would be small as they were described as “sharing style”... we were so wrong! A big pizza and a generous side each was more than enough, great quality ingredients and super tasty! The wait staff and manager were amazing, going the extra mile and very attentive to everyone’s needs, they did a great job and we had a fantastic day.

From reservations and making arrangements with Karen, I was responded to quickly with the most courteous of service. Everything was in order and she took care of my requests with utmost care and patience. Our server, Camilla, gave us excellent service. She attended to our needs and was very pleasant. Our whole experience was great!

The food and drink was lovely, as was the setting , Cable Bay is beautiful and you definitely can't beat it on a good day. At the end when my friends and I went to pay the bill there were a number of items that we hadn't ordered or the wrong number of drinks. As we explained this to the staff they were all incredibly rude about it and made it seem as though we were fighting to not have to pay. I asked to speak to a manager but there wasn't one around. Very disappointing considering I was celebrating my birthday.

I have had nothing but great service from all the team at Cable Bay. Every email has been answered promptly and with great advice. The wait staff were so lovely and friendly. They really made the day special for us. Especially with such a large group. Thank you once again for everything. We will be back.
