Sophisticated and delicious food, nice atmosphere and very attentive service, really enjoyed it. We can see they have put their heart into the food, and the price is reasonable, really worth the trip.

The main course of pork belly was overcooked and stringy, slightly cold. The fire issue needs to be remedied as it would add greatly to the ambience on a cold miserable Winter day. Daniel the waiter was attentive and pleasant.I would have liked the menu to have said that the hazelnut cake was deconstructed. I am not a fan of such offerings. The entrees we ordered were lovely.

This was our first visit and we thought it was the best setting on the Island. We also really appreciated the fact there was no music. Most cafes/restaurants have music which is usually too loud or not the type you would listen to. People go out to mingle with friends/family and often you can't even talk to each other or hear what the others are saying. I felt however that the portions could have been a bit bigger. The food though was beautifully presented and the waiting staff very friendly and efficient. We would have no reservations in suggesting visitors to our Island, dine with you.

What a disappointment! I live locally and had been watching the transformation of the old Saratoga into the new Tantalus like the metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a butterfly. And I had decided to only go once I had a truly special occasion. And so on Friday my new girlfriend and I went for my birthday lunch. And everything was pretty good. Except for the food. Which for a restaurant is a pretty big deal. We had two main courses. And if one had been a bit off we would have excused it. But to be frank they were both less than ordinary. We were there for lunch on Friday, and the lunch downstairs may have been the focal point of the day, because our meals certainly were not. How can you possibly make wagyu beef so tough and chewy? it was appalling. Obviously being a kiwi I didn't complain at the time. But how do you manage to remove all flavour from a parmesan stick? How did the salsa that came with my pork belly manage to lack any flavour whatsoever? And who ever though adding a mushroom smear to this dish would add anything other than a sense of schizophrenia? Who would have thought your wine pouring's would be so miserable given the premium price that you have attached to everything? We dined at Mudbrick and Stoney Ridge over the past few weeks, and we rated them a 9 and an 8 respectively. We gave you a 4. And that was largely due to lovely location and the very friendly front of house. But a restaurant with terrible food has a real problem. I would never recommend you to visitors or return based on the disasters that came out of kitchen on 1 June. Yes, I am willing to put my name to the review - Grant Andrews of Onetangi. And yes, I can give verbal feedback if for some reason you think this review unfair - 021 484583. I'm not the sort of person who goes to a restaurant looking for fault - quite the opposite. But last Friday you were nothing but a huge disappointment. Regretfully your customer, Grant Andrews

Great experience all round. The brewery tour was a nice touch - it was very interesting to see where the beer we were drinking was made and who had made it! The food was also a highlight - the spinach balls were incredible and you had some of the best sliders I have ever eaten! Unfortunately we had just had lunch or we would have eaten much more!

simply stunning and amazing dining experience complete with superb surroundings ,impeccable service, gorgeous well presented and explained food and wine and the gardens we love almost as much as the food itself! Well done tantalus /you got it right and have set a huge high standard for the other venues who are light years behind in many many ways .
