Cable Bay Waiheke Auckland


12 Nick Johnstone Drive, Oneroa, Waiheke. Ph 372-5889,
Lunch & dinner 7 days. $$


Such a magnificent setting: atop a broadly sweeping hill set with sculptures, vines growing to left and right, the glittering Hauraki Gulf below and the towers of the shining city beckoning in the far distance. Land your helicopter nearby or, if you’re an ordinary mortal, make the pleasant stroll up from Oneroa (and later, return to the ferry on a delightful walk down into Matiatia Bay).

The Dining Room serves smart, stylishly upmarket meals, while The Verandah, the bar next door, does small plates and you can sit inside or out. And the Cable Bay wines? Splendid.

A favourite dish: market fish with prawns, crayfish, saffron fregola, broccoli, chorizo & lemon peel.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
