The service and setting were excellent. The matching wines added another level to the delicious food. Will definitely be back.

The food was without a doubt excellent. We sat by a window with a view of the idyllic vineyard and had plenty to see while we enjoyed our meal. But inside the decor was more like that of a school cafeteria with tables that looked like they belonged there instead of a restaurant.

It seems they cater to the bus crowds as a large group arrived while we where there. This means that several things were different from a fine dining restaurant, not the least of which was that the service was good, but not great.

Lunch got fairly expense at $90 for two with only one glass of wine and no starters.

We did everything - vineyard tour, wine tasting and restaurant at the end, what a great way to spend 3 hours. The tour was great as we were able to see all aspects of the production of wine at Villa Maria. Better still was the tasting where we were able to try 12 exceptional wine under the tutelage of a most experienced guide. Food? Outstanding!

Situated very near the Auckland airport, this restaurant provided our last lunch before dropping off the car and leaving New Zealand. What a lovely setting, tucked down a long lane and set beside the vines. As it was a bit windy we ate inside, but there were numerous tables outside. There was absolutely no feeling of being so close to the airport. As for lunch, my husband had the rack of lamb, and pronounced it the best he had had, leaving him a positive feeling for NZ lamb. Mine was the pan seared salmon,- cooked just to perfection. Paired with the suggested wines, it was a lovely NZ finale! Servers were friendly and efficient.

Cannot rave enough about this restaurant! The food was divine as was the setting. Staff was the best I've had in some time and very attentive and personable. We will all no doubt be back. Have to say this is my favourite restaurant now!
