*CLOSED* Vinnies Restaurant - Geoff Scott

UPDATE 24 February 2016: "To my loyal and valued friends and customers today I am sad to announce that Vinnies has been sold and will close its doors on March 6". - Geoff Scott


No visit to Auckland is complete without a visit to our favourite restaurant. Vinnies presents a unique Kiwi dining experience for all.

Vinnies presents a couple of menu options from an A La Carte to Tasting Menus to Set Menus. We opted for the Seven Course Tasting Menu.

We started off with an amuse-bouche to whet the appetite.

The tables are spot lit to provide an intimate and warm ambience for diners.

Oysters done two ways. Tempura and served in its shell and Vinnies famous Oyster Vodka Shots (highly recommended).

Nashi, beurre bosc and packham pears, served with walnut, grapefruit and seasame dressing.

Wild Rabbit Terrine, served with apple preserve, hazlenut dukkah, fennel and mustard pops. Best served with a bread roll (not pictured).

Ora King Salmon, served with spring onion, enokitake mushroom, turnip and watermelon.

Whangamata Scallops, served with chorizo, broccoli, red onion pickle and praline.

A little something to clense the palate before the main course. Try and figure out the ingredients used to make this.

Turkey Breast, served with sour cherries, cavalo nero, chestnut, speck and a drizzle of mulled wine.
We dined around the Christmas period, hence the turkey on the menu.

Time for dessert . . .

New Zealnad and International Cheese Platter, served with honey walnut bread, muscatels, canterbury meyric walnut. 

Fruit Mince Pie Semi-freddo, served with strawberry gel, vanilla meringue, vsop brandy custard air. This was also part of their Christmas seasonal menu.

Lime marshmallow and bourbon whisky gum.

Vinnies is located on Jervois Road in Herne Bay.
