About Cable Bay Vineyards
As one of Waiheke’s top vineyards, Cable Bay attracts visitors from across the globe. With one of the city's best views, the iconic lush lawn overlooks the Hauraki Gulf. Between wood-fired pizzas, seasonal plates, and cultivated cheeseboards, there’s plenty to satisfy the table. Sip on Cable Bay’s very own wine, and take a tour through the cellar door for a real garden-to-table experience.
Under staffed which meant long waits. All staff member’s were lovely, just felt more like a cafe style rather than restaurant
Food was very bland, and other tables got their food well before we did, even though we ordered first. Half of our table came out 20 minutes before the rest of the meals. And then when it did, it was cold so had to send it back. We were offered ice cream or coffee. I had a mocha and it was horrible. Overall experience was very poor, and disappointing
Although the day was overcast it’s still a gorgeous view back to the city and the perfect place to bring visitors to Auckland. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful - thank you.
We made a booking and arrived early, no one greeted us so we went to the bar to ask about our table, they were clearly having a very busy day but was a bit of faff to find our booking and we waited a while to be seated at our table. The table service was bad, we had to keep asking for water, we had to go up and ask for our drinks order to be taken numerous times, we asked for a menu and they never returned to take our order. They tried to clear when we weren't finished, the staff seemed rushed, forgetful, and unhappy, and we were met with frowns when we had to go up and ask for more water/wine. Wouldn't return based on the service.
Service was very slow and the staff didn’t seem to have any idea of when our meals would arrive. We had booked the set menu a few months in advance and despite this the staff were confused about what we were ordering. We ordered 3 bottles of wine for the table and it took 30 minutes to arrive. Food was tasty, but came out very slowly and was cleared too quickly (before we had even finished). Fish was over cooked. A beautiful setting and lovely weather, but overall a relatively disappointing experience.
Very slow service, not very attentive.
It was very quiet but despite that took a very long time to get drinks / decent service. The bar staff spent most of the time talking to each other at the bar......
Atmosphere and location were superb
Lovely food, more veges would be good was worth the trip
What a lovely way to spend the afternoon and the first day at Waiheke. The service was amazing. Food great. We are never disappointed when we come here.
Service was fantastic
Had a lovely time here. Great service.
Service was amazing especially Geo!
The food and service was absolutely stunning. Quite pricey but compared to other vineyards reasonable. 100% recommend and will return. Thank you for a lovely night
Great food. Lovely staff.
Lovely time had by all.............gorgeous vista and the food was just delicious - no complaints apart from no glasses of Prosecco on offer on the menu. Cheers :)
Five stars for their atmosphere and service! Staffs are friendly, attentive and accommodating made our dining experience comfortable. Good food and wine.
The most relaxing enjoyable lunch on our holiday. Beautiful food lovely wine and atmosphere.
Too many flies on Saturday. Scottish waitress chick was cool though. Pay her more. I want to exfoliate my body with that liquid gold you have of an olive oil.
we had a great time. Our host was very accommodating of the children's requests which made for a pleasant experience
We thought the place could do with a good spring clean, the floors were dirty. Food was not of a good standard compared to other places that we ate while over in Waiheke. We will not be returning.
The atmosphere and view is amazing, great wine but would have liked some more variety on the food menu for dining in!
Really disappointing food - your maître dee lovely - our waitress lovely - food very very disappointing - think it’s lost its way - the calamari was horrid - waitress had no problem with taking it away - we had the mezze platter very average - such a shame - a beautiful Location - when we went to leave the lady at the bar wasn’t happy with us paying there?? Not quite sure where we were meant to pay? She wouldn’t give us a receipt only the tear off from eftpos -think she was a bit stressed - she weren’t happy - noting we did not complain at all apart from saying to the waitress the calamari was horrid who was lovely - wouldn’t return - so different from the last time I went there - a real shame
We were disappointed with the food and mentioned this to the waitress. She said she would pass that onto the kitchen but didn't offer any compensation. We wouldn't recommend visiting.
