Fabulous meal and great views from the island across to Auckland. Not cheap, though, but a lovely experience all round.

The lunch didn't start off well with my cousins chair collapsing under her as it wasn't put together correctly. She fell onto the ground smashing her head against another table. The manager apologised but nothing complimentary with given to make up for the incident. The food took 2 hours to come out and while mine was tasty the agnolotti was completely tasteless. They also mixed up the bills between the guests at the table and charge people for the wrong items which I didn't realise before I left.

Very dreamy night at Cable Bay. The Veranda was a beautiful spot for a drink before going over for dinner. Unreal food, the snapper was just wow. Unreal service by the waiter who looked after us (apologies didn’t get his name but above and beyond service). Thank you for helping to make our first year anniversary so magic. We’ll be back!

A truly international-level experience that never dissapoints. Kudos to your staff for attention to detail, exacting and subtle service and excellent skills throughout.

We have eaten several times in the dining room over the years but love the new look bistro feel- food and service were excellent- thank you! Only comment is the plates for the sharing dishes were VERY small- you could just about put a bread roll on one! A bigger plate please..

Something has gone off the boil. The menu in the dining room is insipid and unadventurous. Very few options for vegan folk dining with us which is unusual these days. Overall the vibe on a busy Saturday night on the island was quiet and somber, with the restaurant almost empty by 8pm - hope you find the issue and fix it - for a small group celebrating a birthday it was a letdown.

We requested to have our booking changed to the Verandah once we arrived as it was more casual for a Saturday lunch. Was a great experience, would definitely recommend it to anyone. Great setting and wines. The best part was the service from our waiter - he was simply incredible. Made gret recommendations!
