Another wonderful day spent at Cable Bay. We were married at Cable Bay in 2011 and it’s always a pleasure to revisit.

Even though we really enjoyed it and the staff were excellent, it would have been good to have more of a choice on the menu. Thought the price of the only one Rose they have on the menu was steep at $70.00. Thank you for a nice lunch and afternoon.

Possibly one of the nicest wineries on the island (amazing wine!) with some of the nicest food and most friendly and attentive wait staff. We had lunch at Cable Bay - the degustation menu with paired wines - we were blown away by the quality of the food and the overall presentation. We will be back again later this year where hopefully they will have room in what looks like simply stunning accommodation. Don't go past this restaurant if you are on Waiheke - it is one of the best around! Thank you to Cable Bay restaurant for such an enjoyable afternoon.

Great location, food nice although it was quite expensive. Very hard to get the attention of waiters so often were without drinks for a while. We’re ready to order another bottle of wine as had 45 mins before a taxi picked us up but no one came to check on us and ask if we wanted anything else - no desserts, coffee etc offered. If we wanted anything we had to try hard to flag down a waiter.

Hello Brooke, thanks for taking the time to provide feedback following your recent trip to Cable Bay. I apologise for the delay in responding. We wanted to talk to the staff members involved and investigate further before responding. I would like to apologise on behalf of the staff that it was so hard to get their attention on your visit. We train our staff to be highly attentive and it appears this did not happen. We have provided re-training to all of our staff last week and made a point to bring up this issue in particular. Once again, i apologise we did not meet expectations on this occasion, I hope that you can visit again soon to see an improvement. Kind regards, Cable Bay Vineyards

We had a great evening. As our group had a large number of kids it was a little challenging and the staff were very accommodating and tolorent, which was very much appreciated. Look forward to our next visit.

The location and scenery is stunning. The waiting staff were friendly and wanted to help but overall the service was pretty average for a number of reasons. The table staff were not able to answer questions about the menu (what topping is on the pizza?), not being empowered to make decisions (can we have a taste of the two wines that you do by the glass, then choose a bottle? No, that is not allowed! Upon insisting our party of 9were going to order several bottles, this was referred to management...and agreed to “ but we normally do not do this”) and being a bit inconsistent at the start with bringing our drinks. Having said that there was a lot of food, it was very tasty and well presented. Think there is just a bit of staff training required and empowerment for them to make decisions for a better customer experience.

Excellent staff, especially our Sommelier Tim. He was amazing. He made our Connoiseur tasting that 'EXTRA' special. Followed by a lunch, which was just FABULOUS! Thank you Cable Bay for making our experience an unforgettable one! Cheers

Fantastic place to visit! Disappointed with out seating/table position ... right in middle of restaurant, beside service counter meaning heaps of people staff & customers squeezing past us the entire time, lots of bumps etc. Also being on that lower level and with people & tables in front of you meant the stunning view was somewhat obstructed :(
