We did a winter wine & dine package. Overall we felt the whole day was very good value for money. We were disappointed with some of the service, & felt the staff came across as quite rude, & unfriendly

Overall, a very enjoyable lunch. One suggested improvement is to monitor the ladies toilets regularly. The paper hand towel bin was overflowing and liquid (water ?) over the floor

I reserved a table for 4 for lunch. Everything was going great, until we waited 2 hours to get our food. The alcohol was arriving in 5 minutes but the food never. Tables around us had time to arrive, order, eat and leave before we even had one plate on our table. When asking the manager to come she told us shed see what happened and come back and when she didnt come back I went to see her and the only thing she had to say is giving me some stats about the time people around us were served, no apologies nothing. I told her she was supposed to come back to us, she said she was now, which is totally not true as i did go to her. She was rude and extremely arrogant. She actually didn't care at all about making customer happy. Unfortunately for her, we are not tourist, we are living here so the word will pass. She put blame on the waitress who actually was really nice. What a bad management.

All of the party agreed a sensational experience which has already been shared with multiple people. I hadn't been to CB for a few years, some changes but not to the quality of food and wine! Thoroughly enjoyed and we will be back. Cant wait for my wine purchase to arrive!!

Thankyou for giving us a fantastic lunch, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves visiting Waiheke and Cable Bay. The food on the set menu for us was outstanding. Everyone enjoyed the impeccable experience all round.

Our wait person was just the right kind of attentive and knowledgeable on both our wine and food, with good recommendations as we made our choices. The view, of course, is to die for, even on a winter day and even though the Verandah is large and airy, it was cosy on a cold day which I had been concerned about on booking. Wonderful experience for a belated Mother's Day gift.

Despite our group needing quite a small window of ordering and eating the staff not only made our food extremely quick but they provided us with excellent service. At no point did we feel we were a burden and the staff seemed to genuinely enjoy working there.

We've notice that there's a "fence" banning customers from entering the beautiful lawns. If we just want to take several snaps but not destroy the grass, can we do that? Really appreciated.
