We had an excellent evening and meal at AkeAke accompanied by some fantastic wine in the cellar area, which was lovely! A very friendly waitress. The lamb and lemon tart for dessert were definite favourites!! I highly recommend.

We visited Ake Ake vineyard for dinner a couple of weeks ago and one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. Small but select menu from local seasonal produce. Excellent service from staff, wonderful meal, and would certainly return.
