Six of us had supper there this week and we all loved it - the food was fantastic, the service was brilliant (discreet, sensible, engaging), and the pairing of wine with the courses was well advised. It is a wonderful spot and highly recommended.

We have just had the absolute pleasure of celebrating our 21st wedding anniversary with the most wonderful dining experience at Ake Ake Vineyard Restaurant. The service was very attentive and efficient yet friendly at the same time despite the restaurant being fully booked for a Friday night. The food was absolutely divine, the most beautiful flavours. We shared the shredded... More

If in the area I strongly suggest that you look this place up. Food great, and great value. Staff welcoming and accommodating. Wine very pleasant. Chefs are very personable :). If in the area don't miss this - they look after you and feed you well!

Waitress sat us and provided a special vegan menu straight away, only one option per course however. (Menu in photos) Food was very tasty and enjoyable and the wines were clearly labelled safe for vegan. More than one vegan option food wise would have made it an easy 5 stars!

This is surely a place I will be visiting again upon my next visit - surprisingly we stumbled across this place after our original plan fell through, and can I just say - thank heavens for that! The food, staff, and most importantly the wine, was perfect! The weather was nice as well which just made for a perfect afternoon.... More

I have been here 3 times now and the food and service is always very good - a good menu selection with a range of food - a very relaxed and friendly setting and consistently good service. I will keep coming back as this is one of the best places to eat in Kerikeri.

The staff were very friendly and the food was absolutely beautiful. The garlic and parmesan bread is dangerous and my vegetarian dish of the day was perfect! A gorgeous spot with fabulous wine to top of a great experience.

We came here for a bit of a wine tasting and lunch. At Ake Ake they are very knowledgable in their wines not to mention the wine is certified organic. We got to have a tasting while our meals were prepared which was perfect. The food is absolutely divine and the service is just as perfect, we were checked on... More
