With a big wine list of the finest New Zealand and international wines, this award-winning restaurant has been described as one of the best in the world for wine lovers. Many of the vintages are only available here. Spectacularly perched atop a finger of land, the restaurant commands a nearly 360-degree view. Te Whau's own bordeaux blend is much praised, and the chardonnay can only be had here. The menu changes according to the season and what produce is available. Some
examples: a grilled beef eye fillet with smoked potato crème, beet chips, and mushroom ketchup and a market fish with clams, vegetable ragout, and gluten-free tomato jus.
