Seafood main just ok, came to the table a bubbling bowl and... 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.

We went to Marsden for lunch. They were fairly busy but not full and we did have a booking. Our entrée still took at least half an hour to appear and was underwhelming. We opted for a shared platter of tomato and mozzarella and that was all that was in the very small serving. Not good value at $14. My... More

This winery has a lovely setting for relaxing and eating your lunch. Have been here three times and always had great food. The service was very slow on the first visit and we didn't get our starters, but glad we went back again... Really good food and wine.

We came in without reserving which was fine. We asked to take our little dog with us outside on the veranda but this was declined (which is also fine) but the reason was not so fine as they said their dogs are very protective and would start a fight. So if I'm afraid of big dogs they still have them... More

Called in here for an hour and we were treated to a wine tasting then allowed to roam freely around the vinyard. The vinyard was beautiful with a lovely lake and ducks walking around. There was a lovely outside dining area where we would have loved to have eaten lunch with a bottle of wine, but we were driving so... More

We enjoyed a long, leisurely late lunch of antipasto with our Chardonnay. The view across the lawn, pond and up the vineyard was spectacular, and our granddaughter enjoyed exploring the bridges, smelling the flowers and watching the herons. The antipasto plate was more than enough for 3 of us. Overall, a great way to spend the day!

Went there for my 50th, and found the food good. I had the pork belly and my wife had the lamb. Both were well presented and cooked well. The waiter apologised for no Chardonnay ( Marsden estate is apparently well regarded for their Chardonnay) - which was fine by us as we aren't Chardonnay drinkers. I felt maybe we offended... More

The outside eating area is most attractive, although the chairs did not give good lumbar support. Staff helpful in explaining dishes, and wines by the glass delicious. Well worth a visit.
