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°441 is Out Now.

It’s our annual, inflation-busting ‘Where to Eat for Less Than $25’ list (with thanks to Uber Eats) issue! PLUS the Summer Books Special and the Auckland Property Report Card (with thanks to Barfoot and Thompson). Also, Sir Bob Harvey looks into the missing treasures in our museums and talks to Jacqui Knight about monarch butterflies. AND NOT ONLY THAT: Emil Scheffmann looks into our secondary art market, Matthew Hooton and Morgan Godfery look into the new government, Jamie Wall into the tennis, Hana Pera Aoake into the Māori response to the war in Palestine and Abby Howells into being the lion in the Wizard of Oz. We also find the 10 Best Bakeries in Auckland, a great recipe for a Japanese Breakfast and the king of the supermarket pasta brands. All this and much, much more.
