Even though the weather was maudlin on our visit to Terrôir at Craggy Range vineyard, you cannot help but be distracted by the location. The hilly ranges in the foreground are a compulsory photo opportunity. Terroir restaurant itself, faces to an outdoor eating area and further to a lake – which was very full as we visited during the dying... More

I Love this place...we have dined inside and out and it's always has a lovely atmosphere. The food is outstanding and our waiter was helpful and friendly. Not to mention their Pinot Noir hoes down very nicely. Would definitely recommend you visit this gorgeous place and have a photo with the prize brass bulls on the front lawn

We had lunch at an outside table on a fabulous Autumn day with views of stunning Te Mata peak, great service....so far 10/10 however the food unfortunately let it down The menu is more geared towards dinner with no lighter choices so we chose to share small courses. The salmon and terrine were bland, tiny portions and overly expensive while... More

The setting is divine - sweeping vista, great architecture, altogether stunning. The inside of the restaurant is gorgeous - everything reeks of quality. The food is outstanding in quality, variety, technique, quantity, just everything. The bar service was attentive and knowledgeable. The only slightly disappointing element was the table service missed our empty glasses a number of times and we... More

Another fantastic experience and Craggy Range, we normally come here for wine tasting and to replenish my Noble Riesling stock. We had lunch on a beautiful Hawkes Bay day. Shared all courses, Gruyere soufflé was light with a bit of crunch cheese as a starter with the Chardonnay Followed by the lamb shoulder and crispy potatoes, amazing meal, perfectly cooked... More

We hadn't made a reservation so were told we could only order a platter outside in the courtyard (but we also noticed the entire time we were there, close to an hour, there were many free tables, it was practically empty inside). Not once during the meal were we asked if we wanted to order any drinks, so we just... More

I was expecting better but the welcome was lukewarm, the service was slow (because it looked like only one person knew what they were doing), and the food was just okay. I had the salmon entree - nothing special; the duck main - salty but pretty good; potatoes on the side - very, very salty; and the frangipane dessert -... More

Terrior's dining room is tres' French Relais & Chateaux. This is something that very few winery restaurants can aptly claim. And, the Te Mata Peak view from Terrior's terrace is certainly awesome. The menu, however, favors meat eaters over pescatarian or vegetarian -- and our party of four was two of each. However, despite the fact that none of us... More

The restaurant was in a stunning location over looking the Craggy Range. Food was excellent. Three of us shared two entrees and one main each and all were very nice. We did not think much of Craggy Range wine especially red, however, it's an individual thing! Service was very slow may be not enough staff on that day. The wine... More
