We visited this winery on our trip to Queenstown. We were served by their charming cellar door manager whose knowledge & service was outstanding. We are in the industry in Hawke's Bay, NZ. It was great to chat about what the different regions offer to visitors. Highly recommend.

High quality food, high quality service. I had an open chicken sandwich and my wife a pork belly salad, both were excellent. The staff were very accommodating and made the lunch perfect.

Worth a visit!we recent went here during our ski holiday..absolutely divine food.. We enjoyed the pasta of the day,cod fish and lamb.. Every meal was cooked to perfection and had a beautiful balance of flavours. Also the carrot cake we had for dessert was something very different! Wines here are beautiful too.. A must try!

Seated under a heater which was great as very chilly outside. Lovely service, our waiter answered our wine queries very well. We ordered a small plate of breads, olives, chutney and goats cheese to share which was just enough for 2. Then I had the chicken whilst my husband had the blue cod, both dishes were served promptly and were... More

Six of us dined there - they mixed up the meal orders resulting in mine being served after the other five were finished! I ordered the beetroot & Kumera patties which were dry & crumbly! They attended to Tour parties before us, then we chose a hazelnut biscotti with our coffee & it was rock hard in the shape of... More

Sensational blue cod matched perfectly with wine by our attentive and friendly waitress Meg. Gorgeous location, superb food, stunning service, all followed by an informative and entertaining cave tour.
