We went here for dinner on Friday night when they have live music. Loved it. The wait staff were great, with very generous poors of glasses of wine. The food was wonderful and their wine was also very nice and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere. Very friendly and hospitable. We would go again.

Arrived on our bikes after cycling 12 kms and were warmly greeted upon arrival. Had all the tastings then lunch. Tastings were enjoyable and our Lucan was to die for. Myrtle had prawns and scallops and I had the calamari! Both sensational. Friendly yet professional service and nothing was a problem. If we lived in Hawkes Bay you could rely... More

We had a delightful lunch at Crab Farm Winery on a wonderful Sunday afternoon. Despite the fact they were busy, they fitted us in, and the service was impeccable. We shared a vineyard platter, and tasted some of their delicious wine. Service was friendly but professional, and everything was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful experiences at your lovely winery!

Went for a wine tasting that was very successful and ended up costing a few $$ in purchases. Loved the laid back atmosphere and the jovial staff and the dinner menu looked great. Booked in for dinner later that night. My wife had the pork belly and I had the gurnard. Both exceptional meals very reasonably priced. A GO AGAIN... More

Quick stop to sample the wines...the restaurant was packed but the young gent at the cellar door still took the time to look after us. Some of the reds were pretty good and well priced. Wished we could have stayed for lunch.

My boyfriend and I popped in for lunch on a Sunday! And we were both blown off our feet with the food we ordered. Everything was absolutely divine especially the calamari risotto. Was great to see that compared to other places there was a very hearty amount of calamari! For two us, we had two starters, two alcoholic beverages and... More

We had a fantastic Friday evening by the fire while the rain came down. The food was great, I ordered an entree of Calamari which came on a bed of Risotto. The risotto was so good I considered taking the leftovers home. The service was casual but efficient. It had been a long while since we had tried their wines... More
