Great tapas. Tried a range of starters and main sized tapas to share. The ribs and potatoes were my fav. They all had great flavours. Great location too.
Nice atmosphere and food! We arrived at 12ish and was nearly full. We sat down at a table near the door side. We ordered five tapas for shared around our four people and all of them were quite good. I loved the seafood paella best for it had good proportion of seafood matched with the well-cooked rice. Well definitely come here again next time.
Thank you for the amazing and wonderful service george. We felt so comfortable in this restaurant. The food was great but what made the whole vibe of the restaurant distinctive from the rest was definitely the service!
I am easily impressed and am not quite a foodie - so I enjoyed the hell out of my visit, enjoying the beauty and indulgence of a vineyard lunch. I came with a friend and we sat by the window, where there were beautiful views of the vineyard and the sea. The seating area is spacious, and the decor is rustic chic. The waiter was delightfully polite with a touch of charisma, and made ordering super easy. We shared a bottle of their own perfectly dry Rose. The best part of the meal was the entree of bread and their own olive oil. My god. The bread was so beautiful - crunchy and squishy and flavorsome - and to be honest I would have been happy eating a loaf of that for lunch. BUT, my foodie training called and I moved on to more complicated dishes. The goats cheese croquettes were nicely sweet and crunchy, and the pork meatballs spicy and tender. The roast carrots weren't quite roasted enough, unfortunately, and the accompanying cheese was a bit rich. We had the ox cheek for a main. We both found it a bit fatty - though that may be the nature of ox cheek. The herby salad was much needed by that stage, as everything had been oily and rich, and did the job well. This place was fantastic value for delicious food and an amazing setting - and was classy without being stuffy. I would totally go back and try their other (less rich) dishes. Thanks so much for an A+ boozy lunch!
It was perfect! We had paella and slow braised pork belly for lunch with wine. It was really nice comparing and the dishes are all good. Staffs were friendly and professional, atmosphere was comfy and nice. It's worthy to go :)
I came to casita miro for a wine tasting and was amazing as soon as we walked through the doors. Such a beautiful building that has been really we thought out. We were seating in the outdoor Mosaic courtyard which was incredible. All done by the family who owns the winery. The set up for the wine tasting was beautiful. We had four tastings which were all nicely paired with tapas. I am really looking forward to coming back and tasting more of their food and wine and enjoying the wonderful atmosphere. I love that it is a small family owed business, everyone is so kind and happy
Very very memorable venue for me. It's a Spanish deco vineyard. The menus to match. So are the wines. Their set menu is excellent. It's reasonably priced. For special occasions give them a call they will cater exclusively for the night. Very romantic setting. It's a charm on its own. Everything compliments it.
Wow what more can I say! This is a true gem of Waiheke. Tucked away within their vineyard, this place looks like it has been transplanted straight out of Spain or Italy. It is beyond stylish with a massive conservatory style restaurant serving delicious tapas meals, including octopus, goat’s cheese, pork belly, and my absolute favourite the meringue with summer berries! Even an amateur diner like myself can appreciate the uniqueness of this experience!
Went in for a Saturday lunch and was greeted by a very friendly and helpful staff. We got a table easily as it just after noon. Shortly after we were seated, an Argentinian waiter came to our table to talk us through the menu and gave us very helpful recommendations. He was very patient with our questions and his recommendations are great! We order 4 different tapas and all of them taste great (the patatas wasn't in the photo)! The few things that i didn't really like though are the fact that they might have used frozen prawns so that kinda ruin the whole texture (too 'refined' and 'smooth') and the sweetness of the prawn wasn't very prominent. Frozen prawns have that smooth skin which kinda taste too artificial, if you know what I mean. Also the texture of the hummus dip that came with the bread that we ordered was too smooth for my liking. I personally like it a tad chunkier so there's extra texture to it. But that's totally my personal preference. I find that they are trying to refine the food but somehow I feel that Spanish tapas should feel very rustic and anything-goes. Overall I would give the staff a 10, ambience a 10, and food 8. Would definitely go back again to try other dishes!
A perfect evening - couldn't fault it. The service was excellent and the food matched. Being a touch lazy we decided to order the Fiesta Menu for two. Each dish was presented perfectly and the time between servings was spot on. My favorite was the Ox Cheek. The meal was beautifully complemented by the selection of Miro wines on offer. If you want to celebrate a special night out on Waiheke then I suggest you book a dinner here.
Amazing service, Amazing food, Amazing venue! I can see why ppl get married here. A Spanish tapas style restaurant with beautiful decor and mosaic art to make this place unique. We ordered so many dishes and they were all delicious but mostly I remembered a prawn dish being super yummy! Definitely worth going to Waiheke just for this.
We came here to simply drink. And I have to say it's the best Syrah I have tasted ever! We purchased a bottle to takeaway, easy decision. The Sauvignon Blanc was good, but I have had better. The service and environment was 10/10... We had the best waitress (Mid 20's, Short hair!!!) Give that girl a pay rise, she helped charge my phone and just knew how to manage her customers going the extra mile. Service was easy and friendly. Funny, got served by another guy with no training, couldn't pour properly, didn't know any of the wines and how to use the till. She came along and look after me in under 1 min! Brilliant!!!!! We sat outside on a blanket, with a table looking out onto the vineyard. Very happy! Only negative is that we couldn't order nibbles to eat there. Wine we drank..:) 2012 Miro Vineyard, Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, lean+crisp Sancerre-styled palate 2013 Miro,Syrah Viognier A weighty, intense wine from an incredible year.

We do a lot of family holidays at Waiheke and when we are over there we usually try and eat a meal out at a vineyard, so we have tried most of them over the years. Casita Miro is definitely my favourite, I love the quirky style glass building, mosaic path out the back and tables set into the hill so you can sit on the grass and drink wine and have a light snack. The food is amazing from the bread and dips to the churros to finish. I have been here so many times but will keep coming back!
