I am not given to superlatives in my reviews but this place was exceptional and deserving of its rating as #1 in Picton region. The menu is limited and this is sensible in a place where the logistical challenges for a chef are major. We had three dishes - beef was tender and flavorful; mushroom risotto won accolades from my sister-in-law and was a work of art; my smoked chicken was the best meal I have been served in NZ. The side of vegetables was the best I have ever had - cooked perfectly while retaining all of the flavor of each vegetable. Topped off with a Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir, it was hard to beat. And the attitude of the staff is impeccable.
