This is the second time we have visited Hans Herzog's and found it just as good as the first time. If the weather is fine, it is nice to sit outside on the porch prior to going to the dining room. We ordered a la carte, and the prices were reasonable for the quality of the meal and service. This... read more

We had a delicious 7 course degustation & the food & service were excellent. We knew it was going to be expensive but we're a little surprised to be charged for coffee & welcome rosé. One of our party did not like fish & we would have expected substitution courses to be less of a bother & more imaginitive in... More

Loved this place. Tour of winery first, followed by exceptional dinner. Pretty garden, great attentive service. A must for a special occasion evening in the Marlborough area.. We have enjoyed great food and wines over the last few days spent everywhere in this region.Scenery is very picturesque .Everything was beyond perfect.

This was the second best meal we had in New Zealand, but maybe because we didn't order a multicourse dinner. The setting is drop dead gorgeous, a well maintained winery with flowers everywhere. I suggest before dinner you make a reservation for the 6:00 wine tour. Our guide was a young German man who radiated passion for the winery. Knowledgeable... More

Had dinner here last night at the bistro, a very pretty location outside. Prices were maybe somewhat above average for a "better" restaurant compared to other similar restaurants I have been to in NZ on this trip. I had the "chef's choice" which was a salmon tartare and lamb, both very good. The blueberry ice cream in pastry was average... More

We ate at the outdoor bistro overlooking the vineyard on a warm evening in early February and it was fantastic. The chateaubriand was cooked perfectly as were the frites! The service was also excellent and the setting was really nice. Suggest making a reservation because the bistro area was packed by 7pm.

Came over for Wine & Food 2015 and was not disappointed. Visited the Herzog tent and was the best experience - I was greeted with smiles and a young bubbly happy team who knew their stuff. The wine was amazing, the Pinot Gris was sold out which was a shame but clearly a winner so must try to buy direct,... More

We went here for dinner during our stay at Blenheim as it was recommended by our hosts. We decided that we would eat in the bistro and were given a table in the lovely garden where we watched the sun go down (wearing HH hats to shield the eyes!). The setting helped both with the ambience and the food which... More
