Degustation with Astrolabe

What an amazing experience. Fine wines and fine food, perfectly selected to complement each other. Each courses had exquisitely crafted foods with different meats, flavors, textures, spices, hot and cold. The matching wines were from grapes grown in the Marlborough wine growing region - Astrolabes... read more

Had a business meal and experienced great food and excellent service. We have been coming here for years and it has always been great. Paul is the matradee and is fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant for business or pleasure. You will not be disappointed.

We dined on a Friday night and it was fairly quiet. There was music playing quietly in the background (old classics, nothing too heavy), so conversation was not an issue. The service was professional and friendly and the atmosphere casual and relaxed. The food was outstanding (if a little on the pricy side for me, although my colleagues had no... More

We booked to use a deal voucher, and enjoy a celebratory meal for my partner's birthday. We were seated, on a snowy evening, beside a roaring fire, and the romance factor was spot on! The restaurant is full of heritage memories and curated in a rather quirky manner yet remaining cosy and intimate. The wine list was great, and food... More

This is the third time we have all been to Cook n With Gas. It is an 1860's villa full of atmosphere ideal for an intimate or memorable dinner. The food is very well cooked and absolutely full of flavour. Everyone has fully enjoyed their meal on each visit. There is a very full range of beers and wine -... More

We had been here years ago and it is still just as good. Went with a group (6) and everyone enjoyed it. The place itself is cosy and the waiter was very helpful and entertaining (he seems to have been there forever) with good knowledge of the food and wine to go with it. All the meals came out together... More

We had a three course meal from the new winter menu. The food was beautifully presented with a wide range of options. The service was outstanding, we were made to feel important and welcome. The wait staff engaged in banter, which made us feel very comfortable. It felt like a homely environment, with hearty meals that were portioned that welcomed... More

My friend and I dined here on a Wednesday night. We were greeted by a lovely waiter and taken to our table which was in a very cosy dining room. We ordered two glasses of wine which came out super fast. I ordered the Pork Belly which was the best I have ever had-it was well worth the price tag.... More
