Great restaurant with spectacular views. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 course lunch. Loved the venison flatbread and fish gratin. Just wish it was a little closer to town.

I was part of a group that first came to this restaurant almost two years earlier and I’m pretty sure it ranked number one or two on Trip Advisor of restaurants in Blenheim at that time. I see it has dropped its ranking now and I too feel it was not as good as when I visited the first time.... More

My sister and I really enjoyed out visit to your beautiful estate. It was lovely to be met at the car park and given the ride up to the estate in your shuttle. The wine tasting experience was perfect and our wine experience hostess was very knowledgable on the regions vineyards. It was great to receive a lift back down... More

After a recommendation from our accommodation hosts for the views and food quality, we turned up without a reservation, but obviously timed it well as we needed only the time it took to see the fascinating heritage video before a table became available - would recommend booking ahead if you can. The food was superb, the views spectacular (on a... More

A fantastic restaurant in an elevated position overlooking the Brancott vineyards. An excellent menu with wines recommended to match each course choice.

I went here for a tasting on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. I took my Mum who loves her wine and we were not disappointed. We paid $10 for an extensive tasting of the letter series. The host Diana was very accommodating and informative. She took us for a walk to show us the centre and we were very impressed by... More

if you are in Blenheim, this is a must. The restaurant view is magnificent and the food superb, as is the staff. Service outstanding, especially by our server, who was French and now living in NZ, but didn't catch her name. Lovely young woman! We saw the very short video before lunch, also definitely worth seeing. We decided to have... More
