Great lunch. Seared tuna on a bed of Asian slaw, paired with their Best in New Zealand Chardonnay. What could possibly be better? OK, the salted caramel and dark chocolate tart was pretty darn good, especially when paired with a long black. Great view, great setting, great food, great wine... read more

Great lunch. Seared tuna on a bed of Asian slaw, paired with their Best in New Zealand Chardonnay. What could possibly be better? OK, the salted caramel and dark chocolate tart was pretty darn good, especially when paired with a long black. Great view, great setting, great food, great wine. Look no further.

Beautiful vineyard setting with large lake. Great choice of food and wine tastings. The kitchen closes at around 2pm but you can still order platters which are excellent.

We started going to Marsden shortly after it opened, many years ago. Every time we sneak off for a long lunch together, this is our first choice. The food is always first class, the chiiled pinot gris complements most food, the staff are courteous, quick and friendly. You can do a free tasting to choose a wine, and take as... More

A great highlight of our touring in the Bay of Islands was visiting and sampling the delights of Marsden Estates wines! Rod and Cindy are such wonderful hosts and there isn't anything they don't know about growing grapes and making beautiful wine!

Visited this morning for a celebratory brunch for our wedding anniversary. Service friendly and helpful as usual. Pinot gris still the best in the world, breakfast bacon and eggs divine and hearty with the most delish mushrooms, my steak meal melted in my mouth with the most yummy pepper jus and to finish the best creme brulee. ... Ahhhhh these... More

We last visited before Christmas and were very disappointed. The arrival of a new chef gave us a reason to revisit. The quality and presentation of food is very much improved, even though the menu has not really changed from our previous visit. We look forward to visiting agin, when the menu has changed.
