Tantalus Winery is spectacular, grounds are groomed to a very high standard, the staff are very friendly and give a detailed description of the menu. Tantalus staff are great ambassadors for your company. The ambience is great and the food is excellent. The second visit was a good as the first visit. Would highly recommend.

We went here for our wedding anniversary and were spoiled rotten! The staff went out of their way to make sure all our dietary needs were met. With me being pregnant our waitress suggested the best alternative options for drinks and food. We also had a lovely surprise before and after our meal. Thank you team this was an amazing day and experience and will definitely be coming back soon

We had an absolutely amazing experience here for my Dads 60th. We had organised champagne on an arrival which was a lovely touch. They personalised the menus with a birthday message and the service was impeccable. The food was to die for and the 3-course set menu made it really easy for a larger group. Then we had a beautiful table inside but being able to walk through the gardens between meals, or go outside to play games, which was so much fun. We would recommend this to anyone and would absolutely; love to come back. Couldn't recommend it higher, a must-do!

We had an outstanding time at Tantalus - one of the few occasions I have been to a restaurant/vineyard where everything was 10/10. We had other meals on Waiheke which were lovely but the service and atmosphere at Tantalus really puts it in a sphere on its own. Special thank you to Al for incredible service.
