About Vine Eatery & Bar
Mediterranean & New Zealand Cuisine
Craft Beer, Fine Wine & Cocktail Lounge. Our talented chefs invite you to indulge in the dishes that have inspired our New Zealand and Mediterranean influenced menus. Our extensive tapas menu is designed to be shared, and we also offer a full a-la-carte menu for those wanting a more NZ traditional approach to dining.
We offer fabulous Coffee by Allpress Espresso, and Harney & Son’s Teas. Our full bar specializes in whisky, craft beer, and a huge wine selection reflecting over 25 years in hospitality.
There are many spaces to enjoy; sit around the fireplace, a variety of table and booth settings indoors and out, or for groups of ten or more there’s our private rooms upstairs – “The Balcony” and “The Vintage Room”.
Specializing in “Long Table Shared Plate Dinners”, Vine Eatery & Bar is the perfect place for larger groups who are looking for something a little different and entertaining. For this we offer affordable $50 to $65 menus, including a full tapa menu option at $49. All options include dessert and can be matched with some great beverages. For more casual gatherings we have amazing platters full of fresh delicious meats, seafood and local produce.
Open daily for Coffee by the fire, lunch, dinner or a drink and catch-up with friends, we look forward to hosting you soon..
Felt forgotten at the back of the restaurant. Service was pretty poor, server leaning across to serve the person next to me. Can be avoided as there was plenty of room. Rude and abrupt service by this older gentleman. Head server was nice in the beginning but he forgot about us after our order was taken. Ice cream was sitting on the pass for 5 minutes and then it was served melted. No excuse for this. Ask the chef to redo if it’s not up to standards. Understand it was a busy night so will probably rethink dining on a Saturday in future. Food was good though.
Had a fab dinner recently at Vine - the food was excellent and the service was great, initially a bit slow and it would be good if the kitchen and bar coordinated when the plan is to wine match but after that all was great - Barbara was a star. Going back - most definately.
The food was amazing, as was the wine. Although the staff were busy the service was impeccable, and even called a taxi for us after our meal was finished. I couldn't recommend Vine Eatery highly enough.
What an amazing night, the food was delicious, the service was excellent, such friendly staff. We were made to feel very welcome. The wine was lovely, we decided to have the Tapas for diner and a small rice seafood risotto then finished off with desert and a congac. Thank you to all the staff for such an amazing evening, we will be recommending you to our friends that make the trip to Taupo. Keep up the great work
Great atmosphere truly went above and beyond to make our daughters 16th dinner special with her group of friends Would highly recommended
Fantastic service & food
Great meal. Great service. Thanks!
Made a special trip on a journey from Napier to Tauranga as the restaurant was previously booked last time we were in Taupo. Disappointed with the quality of the Tapas and the fact that no Sherries were available to have with them. The kitchen needs to smarten up the quality of the Tapas, olives shouldn't be the cheapest variety from the supermarket. NZ makes some fantastic wines, need more good quality wines on your list.
outstanding service and food and DRINKS
Well sadly I was ignored for 15 minutes after getting my menu then my duck was over cooked twice! Then my bill was wrong. Basically all a disaster. Shame as I was looking forward to a lovely meal.
Great food and atmosphere, excellent service. Would definitely come back again.
Fantastic,great wait staff,thoughly enjoyed
This was our second time at Vine whilst on vacation in Taupo. Best food in the area and the staff were amazing! Barbara was our waitress on both occasions and she was great! Max was the best bartender ever and really knows how his stuff: ask him for his signature cocktail and you won't be disappointed!
Pretty much faultless. Highly recommended and would most definitely go back next time I am in Taupo.
Very nice place, tapas is great
Great food and wine (the largest wine glasses I have ever seen). A cool wine/bar eatery in the heart of Taupo. We would definately go there again.
Excellent service & food on a busy Saturday evening. Strongly suggest diners make reservations on weekends / holidays to avoid disappointment as Vine is very popular. Glenis
Without a doubt. The finest eating out experience in the greater Taupō area.
Lovely food and fab service! Thanks Barbara for making a lovely night!
