We waited at the counter for the wine tasting and to order, and spoke with the server, but the server walked away and we were completely ignored while others who arrived after us were served. We think it was snobbery.

We finished our 40km cycle here and were rewarded with a outstanding lunch. We had tasted some wines before sitting down to eat so that helped in making choices - and the menu also gives wine pairing options. Food was exquisite - light and delicate...More

This is a MUST visit if you are in the HB. Really thoughtful menu with some signature dishes. You would need to go more than once to satisfy your pallet - I changed my mind 3 times when choosing my main dish! And, I'm not...More

Elephant Hill was the highlight of our bicycle wine tour. Dinner was excellent but our favorite was the oysters served chilled and fried. Search for “GoPro: Stunning Honeymoon in Hawaii and New Zealand 2018 - HD 2K” in YouTube for more clips of the place.
