We do not have to look far for inspiration at Sage, our restaurant at Paroa Bay Winery. From the end of the fishing line cast into the Bay of Islands to the orchard doors of our suppliers, our locally grown and sourced ingredients combine seamlessly into a refreshingly creative New Zealand take on traditional Mediterranean cuisine. 


With a broad-ranging menu that features some of the freshest and most revered offerings from the ocean, and some of New Zealand’s world-renowned farming produce — our chefs work to strike the perfect balance between creative flair and allowing their ingredients to be savoured as they are. And with all dishes thoughtfully matched from wines directly from our very own cellar door, the culinary experience is full-circle. It is our considered and intuitive approach that pervades the restaurant at Sage, from the kitchen through the front of house. 

Sage is hallmarked by the quintessential New Zealand style of hospitality — underwritten by knowledge and professionalism, but understated and relaxed — our staff will gladly pick up diners from Russell, or directly from the beach for those who have dropped anchor in Paroa Bay. 

The restaurant itself sits atop the hills of our vineyard, and the view out over
the expanse of ocean littered with subtropical islands is breathtaking — not to mention the perfect complement to any glass of wine and meal. Join us at Sage and experience our unique take on Mediterranean cuisine in a simply divine setting. 



“Really love this restaurant! The views are great and so is the food. The service staff are really friendly. I was recommended the prawn risotto which was to die for. Will definitely be back.”
