My wife and I came here for lunch on Anzac Day. My wife had the lamb rack and I had the eye fillet. Mine was ordered medium rare but came out medium well, but was still tasty. My wife was happy with her meal. The wine offered with the meals was really good. Great location in Auckland to visit on... More

I enjoyed the wine tasting but the food is the trendy small type. I had the fish but did not find it particularly tasty. The bread starter is small and the dips not very generous and the cheese platter not exceptional. The restaurant has a nice outdoor area and views of the vineyard but the inside seating is in a...

We didn't go there for the wine... although the wine is wonderful we had a special lunch with friends. Which was, just that, special. Great service - the staff knew the menu well and could make great recommendations. The food was absolutely fresh and delicious. Would recommend.

Delighted to be able to book a table outside at short notice. Wonderfully attentive and friendly staff. Food beautifully presented and delicious. We opted for the recommended wine for each course and it was, of course, perfect! A splendid way to spend our last day in NZ, so close to airport.

In my opinion the best restaurant in Auckland. The food is of excellent quality and cooked divinely, accompanied by wines from Villa Maria winery. Well worth your time. The price is not low, but in my opinion is right.

My family brought me here for a surprise birthday lunch on Saturday. They chose Villa Maria having been before and knowing there were well spaced tables outside with plenty of room to fit a pram. The setting is really gorgeous for a beautiful mid summer's day among the grapevines bursting with nearly ripe Chardonnay grapes. It was pleasant to wander... More

Ensconced within the industrial airport park area, only 4 km fro. The airport sits this oasis. Over 200 wines. Sadly you can't sample them all. A wonderful variety to choose from in your tasting. They also have a wonderful outdoor/indoor patio restaurant. You may order wines by the glass or bottle to go with your luncheon options. A wonderful way... More
