A lovely setting for this somewhat pretentious restaurant with efficient but rather aloof staff. The dining room was mostly empty, with only two other couples in the large room so it was all rather lacking in ambience. We opted for 3 (small) courses with matching wines, and received quite a frosty reception when one person asked for a wine that... More

Four Americans traveling in New Zealand thoroughly enjoyed a special dinner at the Bistro to celebrate one of our birthdays. Food was excellent. Service and ambience were fine. Wine was divine! We especially loved the Montepulciano red and the Viognier white. Heed the recommendations of your server to select a wine or wines with your meal.

We enjoyed our 3 course tasting menu with their recommended wines. Each course was flavoursome and presented beautifully. The wines, of course all from their own estate, were well matched with the foods. Good value.

Nice and quite place however the music was a little bit depressive. They have a great gardens with beautiful roses! The food was really good, but short portions. The staff was excellent! We ate the fillet for two. Loved it! The side dish was vegetables, but to be honest it was so shorty that we shouldn't have asked for it!

I was so looking forward to a special lunch at Hans Herzog. However, with the exception of the garden, I was faintly disappointed. The menu was small and did not offer me anything particularly exciting and the food portions, though beautifully presented and quite tasty, were small. I didn't leave hungry but nor was I really satisfied. This was a... More

The service was slow and very impersonal. We would of liked to have our wines to match our course but we could not get the wine ordered. The food was very average We have eaten there before and the menu does not change. We had 3 courses and all went away feeling hungry. I think the management need to assess... More

We had the 7 course menu with wine pairing for dinner. Overall, the food presentation looked nice but it didn't taste as good as it looked. The flavors were nice, don't get me wrong. But nothing spectacular, especially for the price. It's like meeting a pretty girl for the first time and realizing that there's not much beneath that face...... More

This was our 3rd visit in 9 years, but the best, by far. Go for its beautiful garden, fine wines (esp loved the Spirit of Marlborough Merlot-Cabernet Franc), and delicious food. We had the pumpkin soup, creamy yet light, followed by mains of fillet and fish. The fillet was a very large portion, perfectly cooked and accompanied by a delightful... More

The tour was lots of fun and had a very personal touch to it. The dog keeping us company was just an added bonus, she is lovely. The food is top notch and would definitely recommend there for dining. Great wine matching with the food. Could have stayed there all day!

With so many wonderful dining options in this corner of Marlborough its difficult to pick just a few for your stay, and especially hard when your not been to the area before. We are so pleased that we chose Hans Herzog. The setting was amazing with a quiet perfectly manicured garden, the service was excellent, and the food was simply... More
