A table resplendent with delicious food, in the big glass house up on the hill overlooking the vines of Miro Vineyard and out to the Hauraki Gulf, is one of the very best places to be on Waiheke. Dining at Casita Miro is an innately leisurely activity; one’s pulse drops a notch as soon as the first drink is poured (make it a Long Madame Rouge), the first honey-roasted olive savoured. The delightfully charming Cat Vosper presides over this hillside haven, and while she’s an enthusiast for everything about the place, she’s especially entertaining talking about sherry. The food is designed for sharing, tapas and raciones-style, and flavours are, in honest Spanish tradition, bold and uncomplicated. Many of the ingredients come from Waiheke producers, including free-range poultry from a farm just a stone’s throw away at Onetangi.
