“Thank you for helping to make Miranda and Craig’s wedding such a special occasion. Cable Bay exceeded our expectations in every way and our guests were especially complimentary about the food – truly superb.”

“Extraordinary views, an exceptional venue. I understand why so many people have touted this place as a top venue for their wedding. This place has it all in one neat package: get wowed as you enter the doors to funky art and a stunning view of the Hauraki Gulf, let the experts usher you through to the cellar for wine-tasting, and top it all off with lunch facing the lawn and sea.

For the main I had the Angus Scotch Fillet with Waiheke mushrooms, truffled leek, buckwheat and bok choy. The beef was done to my liking and all elements on the plate worked except the bok choy – it didn’t need an Asian-style green on an otherwise great New Zealand/local dish, and I find that bok choy doesn’t tend to work with truffle-flavoured items. I finished with the cheeseboard which went nicely with a diverse selection of Cable Bay and other NZ wines.

The Cable Bay Pinot Noir is exceptional, I’d recommend getting a bottle.”

“Such a magnificent setting: atop a broadly sweeping hill set with sculptures, vines growing to left and right, the glittering Hauraki Gulf below and the towers of the shining city beckoning in the far distance. Land your helicopter nearby or, if you’re an ordinary mortal, make the pleasant stroll up from Oneroa. The Dining Room serves smart, stylishly upmarket meals, while The Verandah, the bar next door, does small plates and you can sit inside or out. And the Cable Bay wines? Splendid.”
