Lovely food - need to pick up the service a bit to keep their Michelin Star, me thinks

This was the second visit for me. And can I say that the first time I visited (years ago), the whole experience was so sensational, I kept it in mind for the future. So I made a special effort to dine here recently, and again, the food was lovely. The only thing letting it down is the service... read more

A dizzying variety of excellent wines, including some varieties we had not tried before. Try the Sauv-Blanc, as we were informed by our host, it's not your usual style and well worth trying. Also, schedule your visit to enjoy lunch at the excellent restaurant, it'll be well worth it.

We were in Blenheim on our 46th Wedding Anniversary this month and were referred to Hans Herzog's vinyard estate by the Blenheim Information office as being the only place in Blenheim where you can have an evening meal at a vinyard. Amazing and how fortunate for us and the vinyard. We enjoyed a fabulous chateabriand and vegetables followed by dessert... More

4+ stars. We had a lovely lunch in their garden. The chateaubriand was cooked to perfection. It was the best meal we had on our trip around Blenheim/Marlborough/ Golden Bay. The service was efficient and friendly. The wine was matched with the meal and was superb. Happy to recommend this restaurant as a place to go for lovely food that... More

I had recently the pleasure to dine out at the bistro and the gastronomic restaurant. I was not disappointed by the quality of the service, the organic wines, and the gourmet cuisine. I was impressed but the decor and the atmosphere; you do not feel in New Zealand at all except if you look at the vines through th windows.... More

Great wines, excellent food and fantastic service. We stopped in for dinner, without a booking, and were immediately welcomed. The setting is stunning. The interior is comfortable and interesting, while the grounds are breath taking. In particular the arbour with different grape varietals (an informative plaques for each) was an amazing touch that both supported the aesthetic and educated us.... More

Some readers may not be aware that the German word 'Herzog' means 'Duke' in English. We did not know the Herzog family when they were running a successful winery and starred Michelin restaurant in Canton Zurich, Switzerland. When it comes to drinking SWISS wines Swiss people are somewhat narrow-minded, and tend traditionally to drink wines in the area where they... More

A most wonderful experience in the garden of this vineyard where fantails flew amongst the tree tops while we enjoyed excellent service and a fantastic chateaubriand with vegetables. I particularly liked the bistro service rather than the restaurant as the cost made it possible to eat there more regularly. I would definitely take visitors there to impress.

Just last week, we had the most amazing meal at Hans Herzog. There was no one else in the restaurant that night, which made it even more special for us. I am sure it gets filled to capacity most nights; we just hit an off-night. We were in the main dining room, which is one of the most beautiful restaurants... More
