2022, A new dawn!

As we welcome 2022 and put a difficult year behind us, we have relished the opportunity of welcoming new guests from other regions in New Zealand to Waiheke and to Poderi Crisci.

Waiheke island is one of the few escapes that comes close to being “A World Apart” and Poderi Crisci continues to offer a true Italian feel and experience.

We continue to be vigilant and observe COVID19 protocols in respect to contact tracing and sanitisation and appreciate your support in this area also.

We invite you to leave the world behind for an afternoon and transport yourself to somewhere just that little bit special.

Note: On public holidays a 15% surcharge will apply. Bookings are essential for the Sunday ‘Long Lunch’ and the degustation dinner.
