In my opinion the best restaurant in Auckland. The food is of excellent quality and cooked divinely, accompanied by wines from Villa Maria winery. Well worth your time. The price is not low, but in my opinion is right.

Enjoyed great platters of food with wonderful wine, in tranquil settings and with pleasant attentive staff. Brilliant place to bring visitors to nz or to the Auckland area.

My family brought me here for a surprise birthday lunch on Saturday. They chose Villa Maria having been before and knowing there were well spaced tables outside with plenty of room to fit a pram. The setting is really gorgeous for a beautiful mid summer's day among the grapevines bursting with nearly ripe Chardonnay grapes. It was pleasant to wander... More

Ensconced within the industrial airport park area, only 4 km fro. The airport sits this oasis. Over 200 wines. Sadly you can't sample them all. A wonderful variety to choose from in your tasting. They also have a wonderful outdoor/indoor patio restaurant. You may order wines by the glass or bottle to go with your luncheon options. A wonderful way... More

My husband and I lunched here because we had a long wait until our airline departure time. We are so glad we did. Their soup special was wonderful. My husband had the salmon that was perfectly prepared and they made the scallops my main dish. Scallops can easily be overcooked but these were just right. The service was great. The... More

A spontaneous choice after a walk up Mangere volcano to have lunch here on a windy Sunday afternoon. Braved the outdoors and the food did not disappoint. Really wonderful service and great food.

Very convenient for travellers with time to spare waiting for a flight in Auckland Airport. Staying in a nearby hotel (Jet Park - see our separate review) we used their guest shuttle to reach Villa Maria (which is beset by major road works on its approaches at present) to enjoy a leisurely lunch with friends before departing for London. We... More

Enjoyed a lovely late lunch over a bottle of sav with the girls. Main meals and desert were excellent (as usual). Wine was really good. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Most enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.
