I would highly recommend you remove the chilli seeds from the olive dish.

The whole day was wonderful from the wine tasting with tthe lovely Deborah to the lunch with beautiful food and wine matches we thoroughly enjoyed meeting the owners and seeing their passion for what they do. Beautiful venue run by a lovely crew.

On the day visited, I was served uncooked fish. The day's dessert with pears had artifically flavoured elements which made the whole pudding unpleasant. Sometimes less is more. Excellent Tantallus wine saved the day.

Food was bland, considering the look of the meal and how well presented it was. Was there for mother’s day and it was an all over average experience which is sad to see. Service was average and the highlight would of been the bathrooms and interior.

Clare was a knowledgeable and engaging host(ess). She has, literally, "written the book" on Waiheke wines, vintners and their stories. The setting at Tantalus Estate is gorgeous and the presentation of the menu items from their restaurant is Michelin star-worthy. This is simply a class act -- from the wine to the gourmet food to the amazing spaces in the tasting room building!

We had a fantastic afternoon in a beautiful setting. Our visitor from the United States said it was a once in a life time experience. Would not hesitate to recommend. Staff were friendly and service was excellent.

I was disappointed with the food. The waitress didn't explain the dishes well (she was French), she put me off ordering the pork belly as i said I didn't want shittake mushroom, and she said it was a main part of the dish. It was a sauce on the side (my friend ordered it). So instead I ordered the vegetarian steak which was very disappointing and dry. I didn't enjoy it at all. The wine was good, and the atmosphere etc is lovely. Thought it very over priced for what we got food-wise. I'd go back for wine and dessert, not a main.
