“We enjoyed a business lunch with about 10 of us on a delightful afternoon. We chose the casual dining area right by the windows and enjoyed views all the way to Auckland. The grassy sloping lawn makes for a perfect post card shot. They even have oversized bean bag type chairs to really relax with food & wine service.

We were spoiled as we ordered basically the whole menu and shared family style. Every dish we tried was a treat. Great combination of flavors. Of course, the waiter expertly paired our selections with the prefect white and red wine selections.”

“It’s hard to top a leisurely afternoon at Cable Bay. The restaurant, housed in a sleek, low-slung building, has floor-to-ceiling windows that show off sensational views across to Auckland, and sits beside the recently expanded Wine Bar… The food is clever without being too clever, with flavours balanced harmoniously and ingredients reflecting the seasons. A starter of cured salmon with smoked creme fraiche, cucumber, grapefruit and fennel is excellent, with squid ink puree adding an extra dimension. Dessert is a highlight, particularly a dish of poached autumn fruits with creme fraiche, walnut caramel and puff pastry. Service is pleasant…, while the wine list, in addition to the expected Cable Bay offerings, features some good European choices.

In brief: Long, leisurely lunching with killer views.”

“What a great combination of experiences. I had a lovely lunch with my wife in the restaurant – always a great place to eat with a very sophisticated menu, and great staff and service to match. Then we had time to kill, as other friends were arriving on a later ferry, so we went outside, collapsed on a bean bag, and had some more wine while looking at the amazing views. It is great to have the choice of the flash restaurant, if you want that, or the great wine bar, that also serves food, if you want to be more casual. And of course, wherever you choose to eat and drink, you have the amazing views, and art, to look at.”
