Echoing the previous review - we had fresh salad and parsnip soup with dumplings, very tasty and well presented. However my main course, belly of pork with mashed potato and cauliflower, was very dry and the meat had obviously been sitting in the kitchen under a hot lamp for a long time. I sent... read more

We enjoyed a leisurely dinner (i.e., relaxed service) sampling wines and beers from the limited, but sufficient list, two tasty entrees, and bread. The two of us had decided at the beginning of the meal to have the smoked salmon ravioli as a main course and to share it. When it finally arrived, we each had one bite and put... More

The setting is beautiful with a superb view of the garden, the waiting staff were attentive without being intrusive and the food was not only beautifully presented it tasted absolutely delicious. My husband is vegetarian and he had a superb, well thought out, well balanced dinner. I had probably the best salad I've ever had and the tastiest veal. The... More

Reading others' review of Vintners, it's possible we struck the restaurant on a bad night. It was Saturday night and the restaurant was about a third full. The sole wait-person seemed pleasant but extremely busy. The Maitre D was also very busy. They were reasonably efficient but we had many long waits and we both found the Maitre D somewhat... More

We tried the new menu last night and it was fantastic, warm winter flavours like the barbacoa of lamb and the artichoke ravioli. A perfect nigh with a bottle of Marlborough Pinot and service that was so seamless it was like magic! Thanks Scott and the Guys in the Kitchen for a memorable night. We will return

We stayed a few nights at the attached accommodation which is quiet nice and good value. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the restaurant. I should have heeded the reviews on trip advisor but it was late and we were hungry. With so many other fantastic restaurants in the area like Hans Herzog and Alan Scott this place needs... More

Food was average. Friendly staff that tried to accommodate gluten allergy although they offered to make a gluten free pizza base which turned out to be a base made entirely of cheese which was so hard it was hard to even eat, I have never had a pizza where the base is just pure cheese, was not edible. Nice that... More

My husband and I went here after a day of travel. The portions were very small, and pricey for what it was. My meal was a pork-based dish that had been molded by a soup can and chilled. I still don't know what it was, but it would have been better as an appetizer given the size and the fact... More
