Went to Mondrian's restaurant at the Scenic Hotel in Blenhein because it was the only open restaurant with availability. We were the last party seated but didn't feel rushed at any point during our meal. We were given a table by the window with a nice view of the town square. The soup of the day was pumpkin and it...

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

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,...

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.

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
