Decent selection of wines and a great little deck view over vineyards. Families dropped by and all worked to make this a very pleasant stop. Well done...

We recently had our 40th anniversary at Te Awa Restaurant and what an occasion. We had friends and family join us from all over New Zealand and the general comment was how fantastic the occasion was. The food was outstanding the service was impeccable and Emma was fantastic in organizing everything to make the occasion as great as it was.

Having really enjoyed the beautiful setting previously, we really fancied more of the same as it was such a stunning warm day. However, despite the restaurant being basically empty bar a few tables full outside, we were told we could not be seated. I questioned why as the restaurant was almost empty, we were told "a booking was expected".....I asked...."what....are... More

Benjamin was really helpful and guided us thoroughly through the wine range. Really interesting information about their particular wines and production. Definitely worth a pop in. They also have a full restaurant.

looking at some of the reviews, one wonders at the 'wine knowledge' of the tasters involved....te Awa offers typical Villa Maria reliability for VALUE for $ spent. (in this region, that goes for both Vidals and Esk Valley Wines). Te Awa restaurant in our experience, and we go there frequently, offers highest quality local fare in decent size servings at...

We have been on a cycle wine tour in Hawkes Bay trying different wineries. The Awa had average wines and the service wasn't really good, compared to the other wineries we have been. Maybe they were too busy serving guests like us, as they had a big wedding on?! If we would do another wine tour, we would be easily... More
