With a tagline like "Outdoor dining at it's best," you can't go wrong with Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant of Waiheke Island, Auckland as a choice alfresco dining location. Described as "one of the most romantic locations on earth," we'd come to Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant for the ultimate outdoor alfresco dining getaway, had we a day to pull ourselves away from the frenzy that is the Auckland city centre.
