“Friendly attentive service and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014 via mobile

I'm beginning to think that cellar door restaurants are the place to go for good food. We stopped by at the Seifried Estate for a wine tasting and lunch. The staff couldn't be more helpful, suggesting that we use the tasting to select a wine to accompany our chosen lunch dishes, then returning to taste the desert wine after the main course. Monk fish tails and chips were a delight, and the Mediterranean platter a great selection.

“Better than excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food, imaginative presentation and attentive service. A balmy Nelson day and relaxed attractive setting. Fun playground for the kids. The platters were so fresh and those who had steak had it cooked exactly to their liking. The children's meals were the best value I have yet seen for the money. Save room for the dessert platter it is so good.
Overall outstanding in every way. We will be back next visit to Nelson.

“Fabulous catering”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

While I haven't eaten at the restaurant, I recently attended a wedding catered by Petit Fleur. This was by far the best wedding meal I have ever had. The choice was great, the food was easy to eat and absolutely delicious. I can't wait to visit the actual restaurant.

“Nice setting, good food, good wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014 via mobile

We knew Seifried wines from England, and had an excellent tasting presented by the charming Anna Seifried. We then enjoyed a very good meal in the (separately run) restaurant. The decor is typically New Zealand - a touch eccentric to European tastes - but we enjoyed a nice relaxing meal. The food was good if slightly over-elaborate, and the white wines to accompany the smoked salmon were excellent, and very reasonably priced.
Anna Seifried suggested we defer tasting the Sweet Agnes until after the meal, which we did, and having tasted bought a couple of bottles!
All in all, a very pleasant and relaxing afternoon.

“Beautiful lunch and excellent desert platter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We stopped here for a lunch by chance and were so glad we stumbled upon it. The steak was succulent and tasty and the Asian beef salad delicious. Although rather full after our mains we decided that we had to have the desert platter after seeing one go to another table, we were not disappointed. Small tasters of most of the deserts on menu plus a few extra tasty morsels. The best meal we had in New Zealand and the prices were good too. Thoroughly recommended.
We were too full after our meal to do the wine tasting so would recommend you do that first!
