Superlative fine dining

We understand that fine dining is on the way out because people don't have time.This is somewhere to make the time,enjoy the service,the wines ,the view,the ambience and thenfood. It is consistantly good and somewhere to take out of towners,out of NewZealanders to visit.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our B&B. Lunch was outside on the elevated lawn overlooking the vineyards. The building is a converted seminary. The wines were produced on the property and we're excellent. The food was also local and delicious, but we have noticed a trend by Kiwi chefs to make the dishes more complex than necessary. For...

Set in the historic Mission Vineyard with views to die for! Excellent menu with great service and very knowledgable and attentive staff. Made me proud to be a Kiwi and hope that all tourists get a taste of New Zealand as good as this food and wine! Have the fillet of beef with bone marrow butter and be prepared to... More

We had lunch here to celebrate our wedding anniversary, as it had been recommended to us by a friend. The staff were very friendly and even though it was busy, service was very good. Our meals were cooked to perfection and well presented and the desserts were amazing. It is enjoyable to walk around the grounds and also read about... More

What a fabulous venue for a lovely lazy Summer Lunch! The wines were superb and the food extremely good. We were a party of 6 and were seated in the Bandstand with a commanding view over the estate. We started with the Estate Riesling wine which was delightful and all the party had the Poached Prawn with Crab starter. Then... More

Dinner at the Mission winery had all the ingredients to be a memorable evening: lovely outdoor setting on a warm January evening, excellent wine and good food. Unfortunately, the service was no where near the quality of the other elements of this evening. Within minutes of our arrival, we felt rushed in making our meal selection. As strange as it... More
