About Tantalus Estate Restaurant
Enter heaven on earth at Waiheke’s Tantalus. The estate alone will have you enticed before you've even set eyes on the food. With an on-site brewery, cellar door, and secret brewer’s lounge, you can spend hours indulging before taking a wander around the vineyard’s grounds. It’s the special touches you find along the way, that make Tantalus truly special.
Always a good time at Tantalus
Excellent as always. Great service and customer engagement from Sandra. Also great to see Kat and Daniel again. Quality ! Regards Derek L
Truly stunning spot....and the food and service is second to none!
Great location, Amazing service, all the way from the booking and advise on how to get there (Bus 50A or 50B) confirmation of booking, arrival, service, food, drink, atmosphere. Just brilliant.
Service was amazing and food delicious. Décor is top class as well.
Fantastic lunch, fabulous service! Tantalus never ceases to impress me every time I come. Changing the menu keeps it interesting and surprising. My booking was for 2 people and when my friend arrived with her 8 yr old grandson you were extremely accommodating which I truly appreciated. Thanks for a memorable lunch I will be back soon.
Our group had a great time. Service and Food were amazing. Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful décor and surroundings. Knowledgeable and friendly staff.
An outstanding lunch for the two of us with exceptional food and of course delicious wines. What really made our day was being looked after by Katerina... perhaps the most professional, knowledgable and utterly delightful waiter/front of house person we've had. Thank you.
great scenery, friendly staff & amazing food and wine
We had a really enjoyable experience at Tantalus Estate. The setting is lovely, food was delicious (pretzel bread was to die for !), wines were delicious and the staff we dealt with excellent. All staff were friendly, accommodating, welcoming and unpretentious, we really enjoyed our wine tasting and loved the way we could be at the high bars and the staff would come to us to talk about the wines as we tasted, again with enthusiasm and passion. Our main lunch waitress was Sandra and she was excellent, super friendly and great with recommending food and wine matches. A great birthday treat ! We are looking forward to coming back to try Alibi aswell. Merry Christmas to you all
Hi We had a lovely time at Tantalus for our firm Xmas party. The only spoiler was at 3.50pm the tables were cleared including our glasses of wine and we were rushed out even though we had booked the room til 4.30pm. Was disappointing way to end the day.
Everything was amazing from start to finish. The team at Tantalus did all they could to accomodate a later lunch time for us, and called when a cancellation allowed us to have the time we were hoping for. It is obvious that there has been extensive training with all the staff to provide outstanding service. The venue is beautiful and there is an attention to detail both inside the restaurant, and throughout the immaculate vineyard and gardens. Thank you for making our friends birthday lunch som special.
We absolutely love dining at Tantalus but this time we were looking for more of a grazing food situation while we worked through some planning. Tantalus were able to provide this easily - the pretzel loaf, the duck liver parfait and of course the legendary fries helped us power through the work we needed to do, along with a cheeky glass of The Egg chardonnay! You have a soft spot in our hearts, Tantalus, we'll definitely be back.
The vineyard was beautiful! Amazing food and service. Verity, our waitress was great and added to the whole experience :)
Absolutely loved our girls lunch at Tantalus. Food, service and wine was amazing. Sitting outside on the covered deck looking out to the green hills and grape vines with a warm breeze blowing was just the perfect setting. My only negative feedback is the private chopper that landed right in front of us to drop off some visitors midway through our lunch. The downdraft and noise it created as it landed directly overhead was massive. Suggest the drop off point is moved to the front entrance if possible so is less of a disruption for guests enjoying the peace and tranquility. But we’ll be back for a special birthday celebration next year!
This was not the first time here, consistently great food service love the ambiance. Here for my hig birthday lunch got treated like a Star 🌟 Thanks 🙏🏼 to our waitress Ana And ALL the very engaging staff Have recommended to many of my friends colleagues and customers WELL DONE
Awesome as always.

Our waitress Kim was great, super knowledgeable and friendly the entire meal. The atmosphere is beautiful. Food was spectacular as were the wine and beers! Great ending to our last honeymoon day in New Zealand.
Absolutely fabulous all round :-)
