It was a very nice experience and round up to a lovely week’s stay on Waiheke. Definitely I will recommend your Restaurant.

The staff argued and got told off in front of customers, we witnessed this several times which provided an unsatisfactory environment and atmosphere.

Loved the idea of sharing plates as it allowed us to try a bit of everything, and they weren’t overly priced. Service was great and food was delicious.

We really enjoyed our tour of the vineyards and seeing the library and barrel room. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. To finish off, we sampled four different wines from the current releases and found out about the differences in preparation and taste of each one.

Hi, the verandah was SUPER hot when all the plastic barriers are closed so would of been nice to have some airflow. Overall the service was the best part - your waiters are lovely and attentive. Would of been nice to have a bit more variety in the menu.

Great place with attentive staff & atmosphere! The owners take a very active role in presenting this property & seeing them there gives me confidence that they are serious about their business! I have been taken there for birthday celebrations & taken many a guest in turn. Top quality food & wine offerings & spectacular views back to Auckland (for those with separation anxiety ;) are the icing on the cake

Our meal at Canle Bay was awesome. We had the sharing plate of fish with the carrot salad and the beetroot salad. The two desserts we shared were yummy. Only issue we had was it was a cool night and there were no heaters on in the verander just the fire, so we had to warm up in between courses by the fire.

Amazing location, amazing staff, menu limited for non seafood dinners. Steak for lunch was luke warm at best and not the best of cuts. Disappointing when we had guests from out of town.

From Booking to Paying the Bill, the whole process was easy hassle free and amazing. The Chefs must be praised for their glorious food, the staff for their friendly manner and the venue for superb night out. Thank you, we will be returning in the future.

The food was fantastic, our service was fine but we were often left without drinks or any kind of touch point for some time. There were a couple of big groups there who were very loud but it was fine! I didn't rate the Cable Bay Pinto Noir but the Syrah was fantastic.

Delicious food and views. Would have loved to do a wine tasting but we were taken straight through to sit for lunch. Would definitely come back for a special occasion

We were inquiring about holding our wedding at the venue. I emailed twice and phoned once over a few days. On the second phone call I managed to get hold of someone, who ended up being fairly helpful. We visited the site but were very unimpressed by the service. The room available had a view of a storage container and the only location available for the ceremony was very public. We were not shown the Villa which we had also enquired about. It would have been nice to have been greeted with a glass of bubbly or even a glass of water. It also would have been nice to have seen some menu options for a wedding dinner. Overall, not impressed.

Service was really poor. Didn’t listen. Forgot drinks. Didn’t bring food out altogether at the same time. Wasn’t attentive. Had to go and ask for extra drinks. And where the rest of the food was. Just not what I would have expected at all. Seemed distracted and like it was a nuisance. Disappointing.

Another great dining experience at Cable Bay. The view and setting is just stunning and the wine is beautiful to match Love it! We head to Cable Bay and Waiheke Island each time we are in Auckland.
