“Pizza in the vines...”

We’ve been here before for ice cream and coffee and it’s always been fantastic, but I’ve lamented that there were no savour options given it’s such a nice spot, with charming courtyard and tables by the vines.

I’ve always thought it weird that NZ has few vineyard restaurants that provide informal lunches - Aussie does this very well. We’ve got great places, but they mostly strive (and often fail) to offer fine dining experiences. My kids want pizza and ice cream and we prefer sandwiches or salad or someone (who are we kidding - we want pizza too!).

Anyway, long story short we’ve found it at last - fantastic, simple and unfussy, fast wood-fired pizza in the perfect session. You won’t be disappointed. And the ice cream is still fabulous....

Called in for an ice cream cone after a lunch meal else where.

The choice of varieties was very good and interesting also sorbets were on offer plus soft ice cream mixed with fresh fruit all of very good quality and taste.

It’s the best ice cream we have tasted in this area.

Well worth dropping in to sample the ice creams and browsing around the shop of bottled chutneys etc.

Visited on a very hot day so the ice cream was very welcome. Large selection of homemade ice cream so many it was difficult to decide. I had strawberry which tasted gorgeous.

Fantastic place - the ice cream/gelato is 110% - don't think you will get better anywhere in NZ. It is that good.

Pizza - best wood fired I have ever tasted.

Brilliant setting & amazing staff. You will not be disappointed.

We stop here each time we visit the area as their ice cream is soooo good. There is lovely outdoor seating out back. There is also a lovely Wool shop attached.
