“A huge thank you to all of the team at Cable Bay. From the little things to the big things your team made everyone feel special and made our day a dream come true. We’ve had so many compliments from our guests about the venue, the food and wine, the service and the staff who helped us on the day.”

“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.”

“What a magical experience at this stunning venue. I had sampled some of Cable Bays wines at a tasting in Sydney a few years ago, New Zealand in a glass, and had always wanted to visit. On this perfect Sunday afternoon my friend and I were warmly greeted and offered a great table, without a booking. The view was incredible the staff friendly and the live music very goood. I was only in NZ for a week and the visit here was the highlight. Well done to all”
