The acclaimed Poderi Crisci Restaurant is widely recognised as one of the finest on Waiheke. In 2014 Poderi Crisci was the only Waiheke restaurant to receive the recognition of being a Metro Top 50  restaurant as well as being listed in the Cuisine Good Food Guide containing the best 70 restaurants in New Zealand.

Enjoy al Fresco dining all year round in this stunning location looking across the valley, with the west facing   restaurant capturing the final rays of the setting sun. The restaurant and surrounds are ideally suited for a  casual lunch, family gatherings or celebrations, weddings and romantic dinners.

Please note that due to the intimate size of the restaurant, bookings are essential for the Sunday Long Lunch and degustation dinners. We also recommend booking well in advance over the summer months and long weekends.



Our chefs are inspired by the finest traditional Italian cuisine prepared using the finest local produce. Modern touches and techniques are used throughout to highlight the flavours and textures of all of our dishes.

Our a la carte menu changes daily as we take advantage of our kitchen garden and the freshest ingredients avaliable on the day. The same is true for our famous “Sunday Long Lunch” menu and degustation menus.
