When you are paying top dollar you expect everything to be perfect. The table we were seated at was so shaky that every time the person on the end touched it the whole thing swayed. We considered moving to the next table but it was just as bad. The entree prawn salads consisted of large plates of tough curly lettuce... More

If I could give negative stars I would. Let me preface this with saying that this is my first negative review and we ate at the bistro (although I hardly think that should matter), we are extremely well travelled tourists (21 countries, countless restaurants), and we have no budget when it comes to great food. Hanz came highly recommended from... More

My husband and I had been travelling round South Island for some three weeks and dinner at Hans Herzog Estate was by far the best of all our dining experiences during those three weeks. We ate in the restaurant which only does a degustation menu of three, five or seven courses. We were asked when booking if we had any... More

I was fortunate enough to be invited by friends to dine at the Hans Herzog Restaurant - we were spoiled by a 7 course degustation that topped any experience I've ever had (including the Bellagio, Las Vegas and the Ritz-Carolton, New York!). The service was incredible, the food fantastic and the environment exquisite. My friends come here every year for... More

Arrived into the Bistro, were not greater or acknowledge even though it was not very busy. My fiancé had to chase the waiter! Sat in garden at a lovely table. They forgot the small things such as blankets, wifi password that we asked for and we had to remind them. We had to keep calling for their attention. The fillet... More

We arrived moments too late for the cellar door to still be doing tastings, and it has to be said Hans Herzog closes their cellar door the latest of all the places we visited! The suggestion was made that we could have a glass of wine in the garden, and perhaps wait for the Bistro to open, which was exactly... More

Below our email which we send to the management of Hans Herzog after our terrible experience in their restaurant. Almost a month later we still don't have any kind of answer from them. Which shows more than enough their disrespect of their guests !! Let this review be a warning for all future visitors ! Dear general manager Hans Herzog,... More
