A friend and I recently enjoyed a wonderful lunch out at the now renamed Vines restaurant at the Bushmere Estate. We ate in the Bond room in front of a warm fire surrounded by acres of vines and an inspiring view of the hills surrounding the Gisborne Flats. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the owner Ian spending... More

Really enjoyed my meal here as did my four fellow diners. Food was great, wine was excellent ....in fact I came home with a couple of bottles of pinot gris that I had no intention of buying before trying it with my meal!

Twelve of us visited this restaurant on Mother's Day. We had a set menu with choice that was great. The food was fabulous. Unfortunately there seemed to be insufficient stuff for the amount of diners booked causing very long delays between courses. No one came to give us water or ask if we wanted drinks. The venue was lovely amongst... More

We rung and booked the night before for lunch and wine tasting. We'd been before and wanted to bring some of our mates back. We decided to use a taxi because we knew we would be drinking only to arrive and the place is shut. So we rung only to be told that David who took our booking had got... More

This was a lovely experience- beautiful spaces in the garden- very Italian styled- Food was very pleasant too ! Plan a relaxing visit to see all the complex- not just inside.

Wow, what a cool day out when there is live music.. Order a delicious platter and picnic on the grass with your wine. I enjoyed the wine tasting & took home a Diavolo Rosso for later. Loved the great local band amongst the vines , and under the Big Blue Gissie Sky.:)

Went for lunch with two friends from UK. Really excellent lunch, interesting, tasty and unusual fare. We all had a different choice and they were all very good. We all stuck to water as we were off on a long walk and the staff seemed totally happy with this and did not try to pressurise us into wine tasting. Service... More

We've done a few of these wine tasting experiences in NZ and abroad. None better. We're not wine snobby by any means and Shona gave us a very unpretentious and informative explanation about the different wines they had. Great fun. A number of wines were sampled in the late am. We were keen for lunch so staggered over to the... More

We dropped in to try the wine, and were pleasantly surprised by how friendly and knowledgble the lady hosting us was. Her enthusiasm for the wine shone through, and we quickly decided to stay for lunch to ponder our selections. The lunch was excellent, fresh, reasonably priced and delicious. The service was friendly, efficient and attentive.
