In addition to having some superb wines (the Reds and Reserve Syrah in particular), we had an excellent lunch at the Passage Rock Wines cafe today on Waiheke Island.
We arrived without a booking, but the staff were very accommodating and setup a table for us inside (unfortunately none were available out). The restaurant was busy and there was a good vibe of activity, contributed to by the relaxed but efficient and professional staff.
We ordered a pizza and Salmon Nicoise Salad to share. Both were nicely presented, packed with flavour and arrived in a very timely manner. The high quality of the ingredients used was evident and the food tasted like it was prepared with care. The wood-fired pizza base was very thin but still a nice firmness and a delight to eat.
We will very happily return.
