Such a beautiful estate with an amazing outlook over the beach. The wines were very nice, however there were none that were actually made at the estate majority were from the Hawkes Bay. They also had no pizza available as we had been told they were amazing here. The main young girl at the front counter was a tad offish,... More

This was a great stop for us as a couple on our way to Whitianga. The lunch was lovely and the wine tasting a bit of a novelty, selecting options on a piece of paper. The setting was also nice. We will be back and we will recommend

We called in for lunch and a wine tasting. The wine tasting consists of very generous pouring of four wines for $18. Enough to see you through lunch especially as the two of us had four wines each. What great wines, especially the Chardonnay and a whole host of magnificent reds. The pizzas for lunch were very good and we... More

As you enter into the cooks Bay Area Mercury bay estate is on your left as you drive up past the gorgeous vineyards you have the opportunity to take NZ$18 worth of tasting you won't be disappointed and the views are to die for its just a shame you can't get a bottle or two

Wonderful spot close to all that is needed to see. You can go to secluded beaches or cathedral Cove or even take the ferry across to whitianga and have a spa . Save time for a few glasses of wine and one of the fabulous platters

Had a wonderful snack with cold meats, cheeses and various other savoury antipasto all washed down with a wonderful bottle of prosecco. Next time I will be sure to try the pizza as well as it looked amazing. Staff was friendly and efficient and the location magical

A lovely spot and the staff are all very friendly. Tasted four wines in a Flite style brought out in a paddle. Good value at $18 with generous pours. Especially recommend the local Rose and Red Merc (Pinot Noir/Syrah mix). Pizzas were delicious too. The Italian platter was delicious but at $48 seriously overpriced for the amount you get. Stick...

Called in for wood fired pizza and had a great afternoon enjoying the food, wine and scenery. Great service and well worth a return visit.

On this Saturday this venue was very busy and despite this a table for 4 was available. The menu has a selection of wood fired pizzas and platters. Our group shared 2 of the pizzas and they were just delicious. A wide wine selection was available with many of them being from the winery. Service was very good and we... More
