Te Whau Restaurant, located on the top level of Te Whau Winery on Waiheke Island, is an ideal place to enjoy all the great things about Waiheke: stunning views, friendly people, world class Waiheke wines and brilliant food. Chef Marco Edwardes is on top of his game sending out impressive seasonal dishes. A starter featuring barbecued plump Australian prawns with a creamy sweet corn purée, coriander & lime salsa and a spiced prawn bisque, was exceptional. The oysters are local, the snapper is line-caught and Waiheke olive oil is on the table.
Hours have been extended for summer. Te Whau is open 7 days for lunch through to the end of January and for dinner Thursday through to Saturday. If time is tight during your visit to the island, and time to enjoy a lunch or dinner at Te Whau is not possible, you can still call in for a short visit and try a snifter or two of Te Whau wines while enjoying the views of the Hauraki Gulf, Rangitoto Island and the Auckland isthmus. It’s hard to beat.
