Great location with a very relaxed feel with picnic tables, blankets and sharing platters. I found the wine to be a tad flat but that's personal taste. We had a picnic by the beach and did wine tasting but personally I didn't get excited about...More

The vineyard is accessed by a very enjoyable scenic drive along a dirt road away from the weekend crowds and double-decker buses of Waiheke. It has a huge outdoor area with lots of different seating options alongside a nice little beach. It was very busy...More

Very pleasant and scenic setting (beach 5 m over the road). More a winery shop that serves cold platters than a restaurant. Not the place to go if you want this as your main meal or if you are hungry. Options for kids. Would have...More

You will need a 4x4 to get here but it's a magical winery on the beach in a remote bay. Wines were good and different, service lovely and the spot incredible. A jaunt but very cool and worth the trip.

When we arrived, we were greeted by an extremely rude staff member who used profanity to make a point about parking. It was so unnecessary and a simple 'excuse me, you can't park here' for whatever reason would have sufficed. When we mentioned this to...More

We made the trip to Waiheke because our friends who are Auckland natives went on and on about the wine, the landscape, and the laid back good nature folks at Man O' War. What we encountered was a disaster and I would seriously 0 star...More

I scored a 4 but probably more a 3.5. I can understand the attraction but it is a simple garden with benches, expensive wine and a only two or three food items to choose from. It is a long way out of town on gravel...More
