With our unique atmosphere, superb food and drink and stunning setting, you’ll wonder where the afternoon disappeared to as you sit back and enjoy the exquisite sunset.


Casual and contemporary, the Verandah is an irresistible place to while away a few hours in style, luxury and comfort.

Nestled amongst our vineyards and olive trees, the outdoor terrace and lawn area frame the stunning views across the Hauraki Gulf to Auckland city. The soft Balinese ceiling drapes contrast beautifully with sleek, white marble tables, and this modern space has a refreshing indoor-outdoor flow with sliding screens that open up onto the lawn.
You can enjoy it whatever the weather in our sheltered and heated seating area, offering comfort at any time of the day or year, and if you’re looking for somewhere to stretch out and relax, grab one of our beanbags or rugs on the lawn.

Offering a menu of sharing plates, slow-roasted meats and pizzas from our outdoor kitchen with wood-fire oven, you are guaranteed to find something to tempt you. On our extensive drinks menu, Cable Bay’s wines are complemented by a variety of craft beers, ciders and refreshing cocktails.
