Lovely little treasure and piece of history hidden in the Waihi hills just on the entrance of the rail tunnel. The back garden provides a respite surrounded by gardens. Service is personable and the food is divine. We ordered the bruschetta, tomato and cumin soup, and the homemade pasta dish. Dishes were served in reasonable portions, garnished delicately, and the... More

We hadn't been here for some time but recently went for lunch with a friend to celebrate a birthday. The road to the restaurant is almost opposite the Karangahake Gorge walkway car park and is well sign posted. Although the access road is quite narrow there is adequate parking. This is a quirky place with both indoor and outside tables.... More

Over the years we have popped in for lunch from time to time when passing or at a loose end while on holiday. We have never been disappointed. The food and wine have always been superb, Karen does a wonderful job and Horst and Wendy are very proud of her wonderful dishes. Today we celebrated our 30th Wedding Aniversary at... More

Excellent location, great burgers, alcohol, sit beside the train and enjoy all the children and tourists laughing on their train ride through the Gorge to WAIHI.

A most wonderful, unpretentious gourmet foodie experience tucked away in a Latvian- style architectural jewel box in a lush and verdant jungle. Ingredients locally sourced and absolutely divine. Don't miss their great wines to accompany the inspired cuisine. I had a dinner here today that will remain in my memory forever. Thank you, Horst and Karen!

A delightful spot tucked away in the hillside above Karangahake reserve. The food was amazing with generous portions and full of flavor. The degustation was very nice and the full variety of the wines were sweet as

Simply amazing, best degustation and food I have ever had. We had delicious fresh succulent seafood chowder and pasta of the day, prawn linguini accompanied by a wonderful degustation of all the wines, Gewuerztraminer was my favourite. Honestly best food I have ever had and the wine was just gold.

Good food and service but a bit tight around the tables but worth a visit. All in all rather nice. Make sure you get good directions

The Estate is in the heart of the Karangahake Gorge. It is only 200 meters from the tunnel portal of the main walking/cycle trail and has its own access from there. It could not be easier. The Karangahake end of the Gorge offers fantastic tracks, many of them loops of differing lengths. There is a huge amount of history and scenic attraction in the area and the winery and restaurant are a well-deserved treat. Karyn, the chef, prepares wonderful gourmet food, which complements Horst's lovely range of wines. The summer garden setting is relaxed and peaceful and a wonderful interlude between walking or biking. In winter there is an open fire. Platters, full or light meals are available
