Maybe to big for less amount of workers Place reminded me of being at a strip club without paying for anything, shows we were given applauded me especially as we had travelled to somewhere hours via plane to relax and have lunch sickened me, maybe some clothes on your clientele would be better for the atmosphere of the establishment.

Scenic back drop. Loved the selection of shared plates. Wine tasting experience was low key, would have liked to have tasted wine that was produced from grapes grown on Waiheke Island. A point of difference to other vineyards would be to offer cheese matches.

I used to love going to Cable Bay but I will not return after my recent visit until there is a huge improvement. Service was very poor this time. I bought a tall glass of drink and was given a short straw and when I asked they said they don't have any!! We had to ask for plates. serviettes and it just continued - the staff seem to be disjointed in the service delivery. It is a great location and I hope for the business sake the service returns to how it used to be.

Super convenient location, near the ferry terminal. Beautiful views from seated locations. The drinks selection was pretty good and well priced - I had a lovely Rose. The food on the other hand was somewhat overpriced for what you get - especially the cheese board! Over $40 for a couple of crackers and a bit of cheese, defiantly get better value elsewhere.

The wine was fantastic (really enjoyed the Pinot Gris) the older European sommelier was really knowledgeable too! The grass outside the restaurant was cordoned off which was a shame. We had the charcuterie board and pizza. The board alone was more than enough for 2 people. The restaurant was super busy so I’d recommend booking ahead on their website as well.

Stunning place booked for a family celebration but it took 1 hour & 10 minutes from time we ordered to time food arrived. We enquired several times got several different answers. The last being that the beef rib took that long to cook. If we’d known that we would have ordered something else or other dishes we ordered could have been brought out. Beef arrived well over cooked. The restaurant was only half full at that stage. Staff appeared indifferent, really disappointing.
