Pleasant location with lovely garden outlook Efficient service expect for the fact that we were not told the side dish of seasonable vegetables we ordered contained the same ordinary vegetables served with our sirloin steaks. The steaks were served lukewarm with a knob of what turned out or be herbed butter next to the vegetables, which we did not distinguish... More

We had dinner in the restaurant while staying in Picton. What to say? Externally the place is in a very relaxing location, surrounded by vineyards. When entering the restaurant the atmosphere is very classy, We have been sat on a sofa in the reception hall and served some bubbles with an amuse-bouche. Then we moved to the main dining room....

We had dinner outside on the patio at Herzog. The food and service were excellent. I felt like I was eating at a top restaurant in France.

We had booked one night in the cottage, which is the loveliest little place for two persons. Professional and caring staff. We had a superb wine tour where we ended tasting three splendid wines: Pinot Gris, Sauvignon blanc and the Spirit. Wow. This is SO different from what you get elsewhere and really high quality. Very small production, and you... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by some locals, though we were also advised to avoid the degustation menu in the main dining room, as it is VERY expensive. So we chose to dine in the Bistro section, assuming that the quality of food preparation should still be skilled. The ambience was very pleasant and refined. The meal was not.... More

Our hosts recommended this bistro and it was fantastic. The setting is a beautiful boutique winery. If you call ahead, they have an informative wine tour and tasting at 6pm. We love a chef's tasting and engulfed in the three course menu. We were served a beef tartare that was tender and paired with a great mustard ice cream. It... More

Yesterday we had our first (very) disappointing dining experience on our 5-week journey through New Zealand. Being advised to go to Herzog's by friends, we opted for the Bistro in order to have a relaxed, not too substantial and time-consuming meal. The very small inside room was terrorised by a very loud and very drunken and very misbehaving bunch of... More

A magnificent jewel. Four of us in town for a business function were looking for a winery with a restaurant. This winery has a flash restaurant plus an informal "bistro" in the garden. Same wines, same kitchen. Fantastic. So, we had a glorious evening in the garden with a view of the sunset over the mountains. A lovely bottle of... More
