A magical place - love the boardwalk down into the wetlands. Our second time for lunch and it did not disappoint. Only dish that we all agreed could have been better was the beef tataki - flavours were too strong and overpowered the meat - wasn't really a tataki in the Japanese sense of the dish.

Because of a private function downstairs our lunch took 2.5hrs to receive 3 courses. It really was too long to wait. It meant we missed going to our next destination. The lunch was faultless apart from that.

Delicious food, quite small portions (apart from fries which are huge... Careful not to fill up on these). Nice atmosphere upstairs at the restaurant, and great brew bar downstairs. Friendly staff once once they relax a bit.

The restsurant manager was excellent especially given it was a busy Sunday afternoon. The food quality and variety was superb. I’d recommend Tantalus in a heartbeat to anyone.

Tantalus is a beautiful place. Best service on the island. Great food. We felt a little rushed towards the end of our booking time, but overall had a very enjoyable lunch.

We had an absolutely lovely time in every way. Love your mix of local and international staff. Would be great with a few more bike racks. Your Tantalus Waiheke Estate Pinot Gris 2016 is delicious.

Jess was a wonderful host, great knowledge of both food & wine. The food was fantastic, particularly the vegan dishes which were some of the best I’ve had (across the world!) Beautiful setting, a really special lunch. Thanks.
