Handcrafted on Waiheke Island
“Lazing on a bean bag on Cable Bay’s lawn while looking across the water back to Auckland, it’s hard not to feel that all is right with the world. The restaurant itself – a sleek, low-slung building that works well in its environment – also boasts those killer views, with floor-to-ceiling windows… A starter of scallops, roast cauliflower cream, ham hock and apple delivers a perfect harmony of creamy, salty and tart flavours; similar dexterity is evident in the beautifully light citrus-cured salmon with watermelon, cucumber, avocado and wasabi. Cable Bay wine matches are listed on the menu to accompany each dish and staff are happy to talk you through the portfolio… On the whole Cable Bay is very worthy of a leisurely afternoon.
In brief: Statement views and smart food.”
