Great place to wither away the afternoon. Great samples of wine to taste with a great view over Omaha looking out all the way to Little Barrier. Will definitely come back and enjoy the setting next time with a cheese platter!

It's so peaceful here, with breathtaking views. Staff are very friendly. Wine is glorious. The menu is limited with just 2 platters but they are delicious! What more could you want?

Another coupon deal( think we have covered just about all the vineyards in the area!) Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, nice food but being a platter not much can go wrong there! Prices very reasonable even without being on special. Very comfortable in the outside area with weatherproof curtains to stop the rain and wind. We had a nice corner table... More

Great staff who were friendly and willing to help explain the wines. We had 5 platters for 10 adults which was perfect with mainly dips and bread. A bit more cheese would have been nice. The views are nice but not a lot of outdoor room for outside. Hopefully in time there will be more outdoor dining, especially in summer.... More

It was pouring with rain and a terrible drive out but worth it for the great hospitality, a delicious platter of food and great wines.

It had been a few years since we had been out to this vineyard - they had since moved their restaurant from upstairs to just through where the wine cellar is. We sat outside on the patio and looked out over Omaha. We had a Grab One which was great value - 2 glasses of bubbles, 2 glasses of wine... More

We enjoyed a wine tasting and meat and cheese platter here whilst visiting Matakana for a few nights. The staff are friendly, the wine is good and you are able to sit and enjoy a fabulous view. Most enjoyable.

Visited for lunch over the weekend and was not impressed with the lipstick coated wine glasses and run down venue. A real shame as the place use to have such nice atmosphere and surroundings but it seems to have gone downhill recently.

We called in here as part of a wine tasting afternoon and except that the dining room was quite cold, found it really great and the owner very helpful and friendly

Great food and wine at the OBV vineyard. Great view overlooking the Omaha beach from the hill it is set on. Great for small and large groups, and popular with the locals as well.
