About The Bistro at Cable Bay
As one of Waiheke’s top vineyards, Cable Bay attracts visitors from across the globe. With one of the city's best views, the iconic lush lawn overlooks the Hauraki Gulf. Between wood-fired pizzas, seasonal plates, and cultivated cheeseboards, there’s plenty to satisfy the table. Sip on Cable Bay’s very own wine, and take a tour through the cellar door for a real garden-to-table experience.
Outstanding venue, food and service. The meal was fantastic and very generous portion sizes. The location and atmosphere was lovely and had a vibrant vibe. Staff were attentive and despite clearly being very busy were happy to accommodate individual requirements.
On a fine day it is a lovely setting looking out over the harbour towards the city. We took an overseas visitor and were all impressed with the total experience. We would be happy to repeat it.
Just beautiful setting and the food was super delicious. Will definitely come back
Lovely food and wine although very disappointed with the service. We patiently waited for an outdoor table and after staring at two empty ones for most of the afternoon were finally moved begrudgingly. Wine and water glasses remained empty for most of the meal until we managed to flag someone down. We paid the bill to a woman who took a phone call mid way through and did not receive even a cursory thank you. I appreciate there was a big group at the same time but as a group of four we felt more or less ignored for the duration. Unfortunately will leave Cable Bay to the hens parties and head somewhere else next time.
Great meal at cable bay on saturday night at the Bistro - service was excellent along with the food - especially the scallops and the hoisin pork belly
A pleasant night,
Lovely meal in beautiful surroundings. Enjoyed the 2016 Pinot Noir.
Staff were lovey and professional but could have been a little more attentive. Food was delicious although for a small menu there were a few recurrences of ingredients. (The same Beetroot and tomatoes featured in the entrees and in the salads). The fish was a standout as was the duck. Overall a great experience and would go back for a special occasion.
We came for my birthday. I asked for an outdoors table, we got one. I asked to add on an extra guest, it was done. Everything was perfect. The day, the table. Emily the waitress was excellent. Food was beautiful. Thank you so much.
Beautiful food - just let down a little with grisly scotch steak and a long wait for the steak due to a wedding. Didnt get to have a cheeseboard as we had to catch the ferry.
Beautifully prepared food served by very friendly and helpful staff, watching the sun set over Auckland on a beautiful evening - it was perfect, thank you.
Wonderful service, stunning view, great experience!
Definitely a must visit when in Waiheke! Even if you only have a wine on the front lawn sitting on a bean bag! Just stunning!
Acoustics in Bistro were very poor!
Absolutely special day. Food and service were excellent! Will definitely come again.
Had a wonderful lunch with friends from the UK who were also very impressed - highly recommend.
The setting, food, wine and service were outstanding. A perfect wedding anniversary dinner. We enjoyed the service provided by the waitress from Albania.
Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans ce restaurant situé dans un cadre idyllique. Je recommande à 100%
The food was really excellent. We loved the octopus especially. The wine, Viognier was absolutely delicious. Followed by a glass of Syrah. So good. Service was also just right A great evening. Thanks.
Had a wonderful meal - really enjoyed the lamb. Great views, great weather.
Love the setting, the service was friendly and efficient but unfortunately we found the food lacking flavour. Our dishes looked pretty but I found myself reaching for the s & p. : (
Thanks for a great afternoon!
Service was amazing, especially Hernan! Very knowledge about good and the vineyards wines (and pairing)
Great service and lovely meal thank you
Great view, but very windy looking into the sunset and prevailing wind! Service was excellent and the food better than other nearby vineyards.
