Soup, monkfish, lamb rump all delicious. Excellent service despite a number of coach parties and a wedding, we were given a table to one side and made to feel like we were important. The staff served us attentively and gave us information about the local attractions e.g. Vineyards and aviation museum. So impressed we ended up back there a second... More

Hi there, thanks a lot for the great review and feedback! A'la carte is our passion here as well as wine, so even though we had two tour groups for food and wine match as well as a wedding in the function room, we dedicate our staff to look after our dining guests. It makes us feel very special that... More

Having read the scallops were good, I ordered those, but there were none. So I ordered the chicken parfait, which arrived undercooked, though my friend's portion looked well done. Unfortunately, it was poorly seasoned and rather bland. Of the main courses ordered on our table the venison won the vote as the tastiest. For desserts, the caramel pannecotta sounded lovely,...

Hi there, thank you very much for your comment. I am really sorry that the scallops ran out on that night, as they are delicious! As for the parfait - I will check with the Chef what happened there, we never had this comment before. And yes, the venison is stunning, it is surely becoming our signature dish. And the... More

My son and I chose MacKenzie Country Venison Tenderloin while my wife chose the Chicken breast. apparently the chicken breast could have done with a touch more flavour but was very moist and perfectly cooked. the venison was outstanding and the Tasman dried fruit sauce was fantastic. the chef really outdid himself. the tenderloin virtually melted in ones mouth and...

We walked into an empty restaurant at 7.45pm on a Thursday but did not feel uncomfortable as we were warmly welcomed. My partner's scallop entree looked delicious. My food choices were a little limited as almost every dish had some member of the nightshade family (potatoes, tomatoes etc). However the chef was able to provide rice with my steak which... More

Hi there, thank you very much for your comment. Yes, the restaurant was rather empty - the whole hotel was taken over by our management from all around the country and we were holding a mini food and wine festival in the function room. You had an unique opportunity to taste the best Marlborough has to offer in terms of... More

We came to Mondrians with a large group as part of a tour. That being said, we were pleasantly surprised with a thee course menu with several delicious choices of an appetizer, main dish and dessert. Each part of the meal was paired with a New Zealand wine. I had very fresh mussels, squid and clams first, paired with a... More

Hi there, thank you very much for your comment. Our food and wine match dinner is very popular and I am glad you enjoyed it.

The service at this restaurant was great and food was delicious. The interior has been recently refurbished and looks nice, but there are a few things that let it down. Mirrored pillars at one end of the restaurant are a distraction when holding conversation, and the entrance to the restaurant is not at all attractive.

We stayed at the hotel and went for dinner on the first night, simply because there was little options. Food was good but over priced like most hotel restaurants.

I ate here two nights in a row when staying for business. Good service from the friendly team, but the good is pretty average and the prices are not in line with the quality. It is certainly an attempt at fine dining, my view is that this attempt is somewhat of a fail. The place would be better served by... More
