Waiheke Island is a popular day trip destination from Auckland. It’s an easy 40-minute ferry trip away and offers plenty of peace and quiet. The island is famous all over New Zealand for its award-winning vineyards, local art galleries and of course its awesome beaches. If you’re in the mood for some adrenaline, there’s also a long list of outdoor activities to pick from. This includes mountain biking, sea kayaking, zip lining, and surfing.
To make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy our gourmet lunch platter, you can even plan to spend the night on Waiheke Island. There’s a good mix of accommodation available on the island, ranging from luxury hotels to cozy cottages.
Wild at Waiheke is a joint boutique vineyard and craft brewery located a short bus ride from the ferry dock. Our family-owned venue has a laid-back and friendly vibe, and we love serving our chef’s fantastic food to our guests. But although we set extremely high standards for our products, we don’t take things too seriously. All we want is for you to feel relaxed and welcome while enjoying a delicious meal.
For your gourmet lunch platter, we have something extra special planned. Each day, our talented chef puts together a unique, single-serve gourmet platter based on the specialities of the current season. This means your gourmet platter here at Wild at Waiheke will be a wonderful surprise because you never know exactly what you’ll get – only that it’ll be absolutely amazing.
On your plate, you’ll find an explosion of exciting tastes and textures. It will be based on our chef’s tasty selection of seafood, cheeses, charcuterie, and fresh dips. On the side, we serve locally baked bread. But be careful - it’s so good you might even finish it before the food is brought out.
To accompany this delicious lunch, you can choose two tastes from a selection of drinks we’ve handpicked for you. From our boutique vineyard, we’re proud to offer our Wild Estate wine. This particular wine is sold exclusively here at Wild at Waiheke so make sure you enjoy every drop.
For the beer lovers, we offer samples of our craft beers. If you prefer a non-alcoholic option, you can try our pretty awesome Waiheke Brewery Ginger Beer. It may not be world-famous, but it’s definitely Waiheke-famous!
Once you’ve let all this amazing food settle, you’re ready to explore our beautiful island with a happy, full stomach.
Dietary note: if you have specific dietary requirements, we recommend you choose a dish from our set lunch menu instead. We promise it will be just as delicious!
