This is such a cool place, we had our team Christmas Party here and everyone said how much they enjoyed it. They were really busy but they got to us in a timely manner and the relaxing venue served our purposes, for unwinding and having a great time. The food was funky and interesting but I wanted more. Bigger portions... More

We had a spur of the moment family lunch here today. As it was Saturday we made a reservation mid morning - on arrival our greeting was pleasant & shown to a very good outdoor table under cover from the hot sun. Our Seddon Pinot Gris was an excellent choice & went very well with our chosen dishes! Marlborough Salmon... More

Being vegetarian, I was a little cautious as there were only a couple of options on the menu but there was no need to worry - the food was spectacular, well presented with a range of flavours. Wonderful dessert too. Service was excellent from the moment we were seated - we had a perfect table in the shade on a... More

We have been her for lunch. We had been to many wineries in NZ incl Villa Maria in Marlborough before. We love these places and thus our expectations were set. We were disappointed first about the cafe which looked much like a canteen and had no character or ambience - nothing special. The service was not good and we had... More

Enjoyed a Sunday lunch here with friends. Beautiful setting at the Auckland vineyard, great food, and excellent wine at a little more than cellar door prices. Highly recommended!

We had planned this visit for some time, and although it took us two days to finally make the booking, it was worth the wait. Unfortunately I had read some bad reviews so we were both a bit hesitant, but arrived with open minds. We were half an hour early, but this didn't phase the staff at all especially as... More

We had lunch here, to celebrate our daughter's birthday. The staff were very obliging when we asked if we could bring a birthday cake. It was brought to us, with candles lit, after our meal. They also offered my daughter a complementary wine. The food was well presented and delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. We had two... More

With time to kill before flying out of the country my wife and I stopped for a fabulous lunch in a beatiful setting five minutes from the airport where we enjoyed not only good service but also a a the full selection of some fabulous wines, many of which are the cellar selection not normally available. It made me also... More

The meat was great. The rest (vegetables, salad, dessert) was well below average. How did you even find an unripe tomato at this time of year?

We had a long layover and went to this winery on a recommendation from our hotel. It was a relaxing and great way to kick start our trip. We got to taste six different wines the sit out site and enjoy a bottle with some wonderful food. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the wine was great. Would... More
