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.

Delicious food and stunning views asypid expect from a Waiheke winery, but what set Cable Bay apart was the relaxed and comfortable atmosphere as well as the efficient, knowledgeable, thorough service staff. I can't think of a better place to spend a lazy afternoon in the sun

Food was great, although a little pricey for what you got. The staff were accomodating except we didn’t need 4 different people asking if we want water every minute

The location and food are very nice. The service is lacking the professionalism and engagement that I would expect from such an establishment, lessening our overall experience. Such a shame, it could be so much better, overall experience was flat.

We had a wonderful evening but we’re a bit taken aback that we couldn’t take our glass onto the lawn for some fabulous sunset pix. Is there a reason. It seems very odd

The staff were excellent and the food great. I felt the portions were small for the price but the taste was sensational. I don't normally have desert but did in this case did and that was great too. The day was windy and overcast when there but I could imagine the setting on a sunny day with the doors open and the view below. We will return.

Meals a bit small. Options outside the menu and kids options available but run through a bit quickly and hard to understand. Waitress served one of the adult dishes to the kids and then asked the adult to take the half eaten plate. This is not really acceptable considering what you pay for the dishes.

I thought your NYE dinner was overpriced. You could have food matched with wine at this price. $179 for four courses was a rip off. The food was delicious but certainly did not warrant the cost.

Thoroughly enjoyable New Years eve dinner with a great Jazz band, and DJ. Staff were very efficient and amazing (especially as they all had to work on New Years eve). Food was delicious and satisfying. All in all a great night.

Had the most amazing meal and such an incredible view! My favourites were the octopus and pavlova for dessert! Beautiful way to cap off an amazing day on the island - and the sunset was fabulous too!

Another amazing experience at CB restaurant yesterday. My wife’s mum has just arrived from the UK and we took her to waiheke for a quick getaway... Superb food and wine - incredible views and Ryan’s service was impeccable as always (even though he wasn’t actually serving our section yesterday) Highly recommended and will be back soon.. .

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Cable Bay Bistro although the oyster lovers in our group were very disappointed that you had run out of oysters which seemed rather strange that the oysters are being cultivated close by.
