The Cable Bay restaurant is making its mark on the New Zealand hospitality scene.
Our award winning Restaurant and Wine Bar on Waiheke Island have an enviable reputation for great food and wine with an unrelenting focus on quality. Olive grove and sea views overlooking the Hauraki Gulf and Auckland city are enriched by an extensive art collection, featuring sculpture and paintings by leading New Zealand artists.
Dine a la carte in the restaurant or enjoy a more relaxed experience in The Wine Bar which serves small plates matched with Cable Bay and other fine wines. Only 35 minutes from downtown Auckland by ferry, and 5 minutes from Matiatia by car.
Our Chef Sam Clark has been with us for three years and brings a no fuss style to the kitchen. He focuses on fresh local produce cooked simply to enhance the flavour and maintain the integrity of the ingredients. On the menu you can find wine matching recommendations from Winemaker Neill Culley who produces elegant wines ideally suited for enjoying with food.
