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.

The atmosphere was spoilt when the music became overpoweringly loud.

We loved our dinner at Vine & would highly recommend it to all our foodie friends. The staff were lovely - attentive but not intrusive. The decor was fabulous and gave the area a very elegant but comfortable ambience. Such a nice place to go with either, a group of friends or something more intimate. Both our dishes were different, both delicious & a shared dessert didn't disappoint either. 5 stars in my book!!

We sat in a booth, the music was too loud for dining. Too much balsamic vinegar was overwhelming on the fig salad which would have otherwise have been a great dish.A lovely menu, great variety and will dine here again on our next trip to Taupo.

This is the third time here. It was a busy Sunday night and busy. Dinner for three, sadly two mains had cold vegetables which should have been hot or warm. The stuffed chicken was very disappointed with, a small thigh, so not much chicken at all, sitting on dry stuffing. Mentioned on paying bill, hopefully passed on to chef like she said, otherwise we do enjoy this restaurant.

We were a part of a group of 13 for dinner. Wow! What an experience! We opted for the tapas menu for the table, the food was incredible and there was plenty to eat. The server we had absolutely made our night, providing the best service we have ever received! A++++

Lovely people and service. Atmosphere was pumping, lots of people. Issues we had were some very rude people sitting behind us and We didn't really enjoy our meals to be honest. Cocktails were yummy!!

Whether my wife and I pop in for a wine after work or we drag friends out for dinner we always have a great experience at Vine. Leanne and her staff do a great job. And Barbara is simply a nut case!
