Stopped there for a glass of wine ended up having a bite to eat as the menu looked good. We weren't very hungry so shared the mussel fritter, it was really good and has inspired us to try and replicate it at home. We always like to try the wineries own wines (surprise, surprise) when we dine at one, unfortunately... More

What a lovely place to go...very relaxing and an amazing view up and down the coast line. The menu is varied with a wide range of choices (possibly too many), however we all selected different meals and were delighted with the presentation and taste of each. The wait staff were attentive and friendly. Deserts were devine! They also have a... More

Always make a point of visiting here every time I'm in town. Not only is the view breathtaking but the food is equally so. We always have amazing meals and today was no exception with the outstanding antipasto platters. Look forward to seeing you next time!

This place has a lot of potential. Sadly we were very disappointed. We ordered an antipasto platter - to me I expect an antipasto platter to be bread, meats and cheeses however this is not what we got. The antipasto platter was Salads, breads and a bit of slow cooked meat - it seemed like it was a platter of... More

This wonderful place is simply perfect. Whilst we were on holiday with our daughter my husband celebrated his birthday so I booked a table for two, our daughter and son-in-law paid for a bottle of wine as his present. The food was simply wonderful, fine dining but not with the tiny portions. The cost was not overly expensive for the... More

To sit at a table with a breathtaking view would not be enough if the food was not great. However put the view and great food together and you have a winner. That is what we had today. 3 of us shared the platter for 2 and1 serve of the beef cheeks. Absolutely yummy. Probably the best selection I've had... More

We visited Okurukuru twice. The first time to have a drink on the deck in the sun. I decided to do the wine tasting - why offer your wines but use a wine from another winery to make up the four you pay for? I was given three Okurukuru wines and a riesling from Hawkes Bay and yet Okurukuru had... More
