We dropped into Pegasus Bay Winery when we had some time to kill before a wedding reception nearby. The staff were very helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit, from the wine tasting, to sitting at a table on the lawns enjoying the view. The quotes on the toilet walls are classic. We left having purchased some good wines so... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and apart from once were told we had to wait for at least an hour, however each time there were plenty of available tables, each time we left and went elsewhere. What a joke! .The staff seem to not care and the policy of the place seems to be to milk... More

The wine tasting is at no cost here and there is a nice range of good quality wines to taste. The drive out if Christchurch to get here is pretty easy and it is a very well kept and pretty garden that greats you on arrival. Heidi knew what she was doing in the cellar door and was a friendly... More

Started out with a wine tasting , followed by a sumptuous lunch - excellent atmosphere, delicious food and smashing staff. Can't say better than that. If I didn't live in the UK, I'd be there on a regular basis ! Don't forget to ask for some food to feed the eels in the pond !!

Time and time again we return to Pegasus Bay to enjoy the fine food, the welcoming hospitality and the beautifully crafted wines. No matter if the day is sunny or a bit moody the ambience in the dining room blends with nature's offering. Our most recent visit was with some foodies from Sydney - quite authoritive and in the business... More

You can taste the wines in a great tasting room. The wines are some of the best in New Zealand. They also have a first class restaurant. I would certainly recommend you visit.

Of all of the high-end dining venues within reach of Christchurch, Pegasus Bay is not only the best but also the most consistent. Excellent food served with a smile and accompanied by fabulous wines. The beautiful location only adds to the experience. Prices are not cheap but you always get good value (unlike many other upper echelon restaurants in the... More

This is the best of the best. Service, brilliant. Surroundings, wonderful. Wines, world class. Food, absolutely stunning. We had lunch with two starters, shared main and a shared dessert. After a treat from the kitchen (yum), we had the Roasted Beetroot, buffalo yogurt, ricotta salata, mint and smoked pecans. We also had the Venison Carpaccio with Pinot cherries, horseradish cream...

The first time we visited we just stopped in for a tasting and we loved the grounds so much that we booked a table for lunch a few days later. The wines are exceptional and the food is delicious. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat in the garden and had great service. I would highly recommend having... More

This is a beautiful winery worth the trip from Christchurch. Spectacular Pinots and a beautiful restaurant. We could not get a table so the manager made a call and sent us to another winery about 10 minutes away which also had great wine and wonderful restaurant.
