Food and Eating

Visit Waiheke and discover why the island has earned a reputation for its artisan produce, all served with outstanding views over the Hauraki Gulf. Boasting more than 30 vineyards and wineries, Waiheke has an ideal micro climate for growing both grapes and olives. Spend an afternoon tasting olive oil before moving on to a vineyard for handcrafted wines on the terrace as the sun goes down.

There are many excellent fine dining venues including Stonyridge, Mudbrick, Cable Bay and Te Whau. For more casual café or pub style menus try 4th Avenue and Charlie Farley's at Onetangi, Fenice, Delight Café and Ricky's Bar or the woodfired pizzas from Dragonfired. For local gourmet goodies - artisan breads and sheep's cheese, browse the Saturday market at Ostend or the Island Thyme deli.
