We were a group of 11 and found the staff outstanding, right from the first phone call, the staff were all accommodating, friendly and professional. The food was delicious, and there was plenty of it. The lamb melted in your mouth. Then to finish off a wonderful lunch we sat out on the bean bags and enjoyed our drinks soaking up the view. We will be back for sure.

Fabulous service from our waiter Zachary, the food portions were a little on the small size for sharing plates.

We had the cheese and meat boards and we absolutely loved them. The staff were super attentive and the food was delicious. The view was pretty spectacular also.

Great setting outside on sofas with blankets to watch the afternoon sun and get to know the local ducks and seagulls. Very efficient email communication. Inside tables all face the windows for the view. Meals are smaller fine dining. Delicious.

The food was pretty good for a set menu and there was enough of it. this was a reasonable price but the wine being $70 a bottle and $25 at the cellar door is a bit rich. I don't mind paying for wine but the huge mark-up on this felt a bit excessive. other than that the day was great and service excellent.

A great venue for our team lunch. The food was great and the seating allowed everyone to get involved with various conversations. Great value for 7 people. Shame we couldn’t stay longer. Would recommend.

We turned up and were served promptly - placed our order and then waited an hour for our food. Our order was obviously forgotten - but no mention of this...wasn't until we chased up our order that they got their skates on. Then we had to wolf down our food so we could meet our next appointment. :(

We had an awkwardly hosted wine tasting. Service was very very slow, unprepared for guests with food allergies despite previous warning, espresso martini's loaded with far to much coffee, revolting and terribly made and left all who had them feeling ill for remainder of evening (and awake all night, far too much coffee). Most of meat very rare. Un organised staff and services. Excellent location and venu.

We had a great time at Cable Bay on Saturday night. The waiting staff were very attentive but unobtrusive, and were very easy-going. We could have a bit of a laugh with our waiter too. The view across to Auckland City is amazing. It finished off a fabulous day we had had on Waiheke Island. The food was really good, we had a set menu and thought it was pretty good value for money. The only negative would probably be that not many of us enjoyed the calzone/quesadilla - a bit too salty and olivey. But the remainder of the menu was delicious especially the roasted vegetables and the rack of lamb. Thank you for a lovely evening.

Our time at Cable Bay was serene, comforting and the view was beautiful. We had the Mezze platter which came with some of the best hummus and olive tapinade I have ever eaten, and the bread and cheese selection was the perfect compliment to the rest of the dish. The creme brulee topped off our meal in the smoothest and sweetest way possible. The gentleman that served us was attentive but not overbearing, and everyone on staff there was very kind.

The young guy serving us was only on day 3 and he did a fantastic job. Very personable and engaging. Clearly a credit to the training you provide and your staff selection process. Definitely a great way to spend an afternoon.
