Vinnies Review

This shop-front restaurant has a warm, intimate quality. Specialty local produce is prepared with elegant flair by Chef Geoff Scott. The menu changes to suit the season, but you can be assured everything is prepared to make the most of the produce and served to satisfy the customer. Perhaps some aged beef strip loin with salami, smoked macadamias, and horseradish with white asparagus, or the market fish on a kumara purée, with pāua fritter, pomegranate, and gazpacho. The wine list is excellent. Given this spot's lovely character and reputation, it's often busy, so it pays to book ahead.
