Runner-up, Best Destination Restaurant / Finalist, Best Shared Table


The large plates to share in this Spanish-themed rural idyll are raciones; the small ones, of course, are tapas. The sherries are worth rethinking your afternoon for. Ask for a flight, from dry-
as-a-bone to liquid Christmas cake, or just specify your fancy.

The wines, presented with a broad wink to their seductive power, are delicious too. Chef Cristian Hossack serves the perfect matches, from the honeyed olives all the way to slow-cooked meats, and the whole affair is presided over by Waiheke’s queens of the restaurant floor, Cat Vosper (centre) and Clare Dunleavy.

A favourite dish: chef’s fiesta menu — have a party at your table with four courses for just $75 a head.

Latest issue shadow

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!
