Enjoyed an excellent lunch with a warm winter feel with fresh quail. Excellent service and enjoyed wine tasting through the meal. Naturally left with a few bottles of our favourite. The cheese shop next door was also well worth a visit!

We loved the region and eating here was a standout. We booked ahead (fortunately) as they are popular - we took a day to explore the wine region and wanted to have a nice relaxed lunch. The servings were generous and quite delicious

We visited with a group for the wine tour followed by a couple of glasses in the cellar. The tour was very good and i appreciated the cheese matching and explanations. We then went for our glasses of wine. I hadn't had lunch so was looking forward to a platter to share from the vintners kitchen. Disappointing! The service was... More

We joined 4 friends and enjoyed a superb afternoon experience at Gibbston Valley Winery restaurant. We sampled the Duck, Lamb, Chicken, pasta and salads further enhanced by a smooth 2013 La Dulcinee Pinos Gris. The atmosphere was friendly, the décor & views very Otago. I recommend you make the effort to stop and try for yourself.

Again, they always surprise us, we always have the platter for two, and it is always perfect, things on that plate you don't have at home, presented beautifully, the stuffed vine leaves are to die for, the apricot chutney is so good, we love it. The staff here are always great, friendly and knowledgeable, and on the ball at all... More

It has snowed overnight turning the area into a winter wonderland. A bowl of hearty minestrone followed by a warm pudding was just perfect for the conditions. In addition I had a salad which came with a perfectly soft boiled egg out of the shell. Add a glass of the local wine and it is a perfect lunch. Service was... More

OK so here is the bottom line. Go to Gibbston. Take a couple hours and make a visit. Plan to have lunch at the cute outdoor patio. The brief walk about tour was simple, straight forward and informative about grape growing, vineyard management and wine production. The lunch was excellent. We had a roasted chicken dish accompanied with rice and... More

I'm not a particular fan of wineries and winery meals but am blessed with a daughter who is, so off we went. First impressions were good, in that parking was easy and surroundings pleasant. There was a choice of indoor or outside tables. The food was tasty and the wine good. The company was even better, so it was a... More
