We had dinner at Cortado's after an all day winery tour. We had the dips followed by the seafood platter. It was absolutely amazing and the service was lovely.

We came for breakfast on a sunny Sunday morning. We were particularly impressed with the waitress we had who accommodated our requests (swapping out parts of the Cortado Breakfast for other items) and made sure to check she had everything right. The food was excellent and filled us up nicely in advance of our vineyard tour! Food was slightly slow... More

We discovered this café for lunch and it was so good that we promptly booked dinner with friends there that night! The place was crowded but the lady managing the establishment at that time did not turn us away - she asked us to wait a few moments and she would find us something. And we are so glad that... More

Ordered Pizza, Very disappointing to receive a frozen and reheated/microwaved pizza, that the topping had unmelted cheese and base was frozen in the centre. The cuts still frozen too. To sell this as a premium Pizza @$25 each i was gutted. We had this as a take away and were in the ferry queue by the time we realised so... More

Im slightly perplexed by this review as we make our own bases fresh on site every morning. We certainly do not microwave anything and I am very confused as to how your pizza could possibly be frozen as we never freeze our handmade bases. If you would like to contact us, I would be more than happy to discuss this... More

Recommended by a local, we decided to see the New Year in with Pizzas from Café Cortardo. What a gift from heaven. The favourite Garlic Prawn Pizza was joined by an equally delicious Roast Pork Pizza. They were so good, we travelled from Havelock a couple of nights later just to get some more.
