We cycled out via the inland water ride then back via the shorter seaside ride. The service at Crab Farm Winery was friendly and attentive without being pushy. The meal was divine - our visitor said it was the best meal of his trip.

We were staying in Ahuriri so this restaurant was not too far to travel to. Very friendly staff, good menu choices and nice wines. We ate indoors but there was a lovely outdoor area as well and the vineyards are close to the restaurant.

I hadn’t been here for a few years, but was delighted to see it is still full of rustic charm. The service is good and the food tasty, There is not a large selection,but should be something for everyone. Casual atmosphere.
