A stunning location - great value and the most sensational fresh Mediterranean flavours in each of the 10 meals we enjoyed. Definitely will return and enjoy this setting and wonderful food.

Our Argentinian waitress was lively and assisted us with a special request. The kitchen staff was great to prepare it. Our meal was fresh, light and the Five Hills Malbec was excellent. Would love the recipe for the chocolate mousse dessert!

We had a very satisfying meal with good service and food that exceeded expectations Matched with excellent wines The Sauvignon Blanc was a beautiful match for the ceviche, the ham hock and viogner kicked on and then lamb and the delightful Syrah. The view back to Auckland just reminded us how lucky we are. Top notch

I recently booked Cable Bay for a conference/business function. From start to finish the team excelled in customer service and experience. It was effortless, well organised and made the whole day more productive because of their attentiveness. The food was delicious with plenty to go around, not to mention the wine, which of course was fantastic. We will definitely be back. Thank you all at Cable Bay!

Probably wouldn't recommend it at the moment while the outside area is roped off - which we weren't warned about and nothing on the website - that I could find. Having said that the food and the service was - okay.

We were in the western corner so got hot when sun dipped directly on us but Miss Turin inside organised for us to go outside for a while where Miss Seattle looked after us. Very enjoyable day

We were a group of 25 and had such an amazing time at The Verandah. Thanks you so much to the Cable Bay team involved in our little Xmas/New year function :)

The lack of outdoor space seems to have really made a difference to the atmosphere- sadly- as we were expecting the usual vibrant and lively atmosphere on such a sunny day- but the restaurant was virtually empty- and quite hot due to lack of breeze. The menu seemed a little restrictive compared to previously. We ordered pizza- the bases were on the soggy side and the selection of toppings was odd. All in all an unusually poor turnout from one of Waiheke’s best offerings. We won’t rush back.

wasn't up to the usual high standards i have experienced unfortunately. we were told that we had to vacate our table at 2pm (booked from 12pm) even though the restaurant was half full at 2pm. it was a beautiful day but they wouldn't open up the front windows/shutters (made of plastic pvc) so we couldn't enjoy the view and there were no bean bags outside as well for us to use and enjoy unlike previous occasions. we had family up from Christchurch so i was a little disappointed as we made a special trip for lunch.

Understand it's a sharing menu but we got the pizza and lamb first before cheese board or salad. Leaving us feeling like what's the point of cheese board or salad anymore. We had asked about it, our waiter said she'd come back to us, but then she had just avoided our table for a good while, with no explanation... When we first sat down, we weren't given water for a long while as well, until we had asked for it when the wine was served. Wouldn't say it was a good dining experience. However, food itself was not bad.

Despite great experiences here in the past, this was a let down. Not enough bread on the platter, a hair on the extra bread, a discussion in the kitchen about the returned bread, a long wait for steak and the steak definitely not cooked medium. Also charged for wine tasting when we are dining in and wanted a taste to select a wine match. Overall very disappointing for our overseas guestsand ourselves. We are unlikely to return.

We celebrated my wife's 30th birthday with 15 friends and it was amazing. We were so well looked after and the food was amazing. I would only suggest one thing which is some light music to improve the atmosphere.
