We have been in the Bay of Islands for five days, leaving tomorrow and sadly only just discovered the restaurant at Marsden Winery. We had recommendations from a number of local people so we thought we should drop in as we were touring that part of the Bay. We were not disappointed!! We had an amazing lunch with starters of...

We had a nice wine tasting, bought some wine and then came back for lunch. It was just great for a couple of foodies like us.

They have a great low priced lunch menu, with superb choices. I had the King Prawns with Honey & they were just perfect. My lunch companion had the soup of the day which was apparently beautiful as well. Good sized portion. I had the Pinot Gris & my companion had the Syrah both were great. Very attentive staff, checked every... More

Situated not far from the Bay of Islands airport and Kerikeri this was an ideal stop-off point for us for lunch following a scenic flight. The building is quite large as is the car park but we still had some difficulty finding a space due to a combination of (others) bad parking and the fact that it was fairly busy.... More

From the outside the building looks like a large Swiss Chalet, it is really appealing. Inside is elegant with a lovely atmosphere. The staff and owners are always helpful and always smiling. Vegetarian meals are limited, but if not too busy the chef will offer to make something different. Overall a very nice experience and a 'must visit' for those... More

It might be 4* for Kerikeri but only 3* for New Zealand. 90% of the grapes that are bottled there are brought in from other vineyards. We thought that they were expensive in comparison to other sites in NZ. However the Rose was reduced in price because it was the last few bottles and was excellent with lunch. The restaurant... More

This is my favourite place in Kerikeri ....sitting on the grape vine covered terrace, looking out over the vinyard and the pond, sipping fabulous Pinot Gris and enjoying a fabulous meal served by friendly and kind people. The menu changes regularly, but the bread platter with dips has been a constant treat and the curry, when it makes its way... More

I visited the Marsden winery with my mum from the Waikato and my Uncle from the UK. I was driving so they could enjoy the amazing local wines on offer and Cindy, the owner, was very accommodating and shared her knowledge and passion of the wines with us. The Pinot Gris was the star for us, a beautiful white wine... More

Very nice tasting and selection of excellent wines. Was our favourite by far and no fee as well. Owners and staff were very friendly. Platter was amazing. The grounds are beautiful. Right by the airport as well. Must stop by.

We booked a table overlooking the garden and enjoyed the excellent menu. I normally prefer Sauvignon Blanc to Chardonnay but the winery's Black Rocks Chardonnay proved exceptional and not to be missed. After a long and enjoyable lunch we asked for a taxi to take us back to our hotel but the management insisted on driving us back in person,... More
