Our waiter Raoul was so attentive and timely with all of our needs. The food was top notch, we had tapas. The wine was reasonably priced and comfortable seating. A warm and inviting atmosphere. Recommend to anyone looking for a nice night out with fabulous food.

Our waitress Barbara went above and beyond to make this experience so memorable. What an asset to your restaurant. It was my husbands birthday and her fabulous personality, attention to detail and to sing happy birthday was above and beyond. We will definitely rate this superb restaurant. A beautiful setting, amazing food and cocktails and wonderful service. What’s not to love

Vine came highly recommended by locals as well as friends from our home town, so we had go give it a try. Gorgeous atmosphere, absolutely love the decor and set up. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming too. The menu itself is outstanding. There are some fantastic options and all exceeded expectations when we opted to order 5 sharing plates. I highly recommend the lamb cutlets. Wine selection is brilliant. The "Wine Wall" is a fabulous addition to decor but it's also almost like a fun activity going to look at a bottle of wine to purchase for the table. We are not Taupo locals. But we will be back! Thank you Vine.

Excellent food, everything was very tasty. Service was very good, the only downside was the music was a little loud and because the place was packed with everyone talking over the music it was quite a noisy environment

Have always enjoyed the service and food at Vine. But always struggle with vegan options, which should be so easy to cater for with such a big menu, it just takes a bit more effort and thought. Other than that, wine selection is excellent and service and atmosphere always great.

Very nice evening with lovely food and drinks. Perfect service. We had mains and desserts and all yum. Best of all, it’s a big restaurant and it was pretty much full on our evening, so happy that the noise level was really good. We were 7 around the table and could have a nice conversation during dinner. Very much appreciated!!!

Took an hour for our food to come out but this was likely due to it being so busy, which added to a great atmosphere, but was definitely worth the wait when it did arrive. Would 100% recommend & return next time we are in Taupo, thank you
