Tantalus Estate is a destination sought after by travellers and locals alike. Set amongst the vines in the heart of Onetangi Valley on Waiheke, the beautiful restaurant offers guests a variety of areas to dine. Relax and enjoy the spacious botanical courtyards, comfortable lounge areas, a light and expansive tasting room and the elegant restaurant and function room. Hidden from the central dining area lies an intimate private dining room and wine library. There is even a craft brewery on the floor below. Everything is created from natural materials with hand-painted walls and chandeliers crafted from old vines.
The seasonal menu offers refined, tantalising dishes with bold flavours designed to complement the wine and beer made here. Add the unforgettable setting with sweeping vineyard views and you have it all.
