I want to start of by saying that our waitress was incredible! She really enjoys her job and it shows - Great service considering she had quite a few people to look after on what appeared to be a busy night. I think the fact that it was busy on a weeknight is testament to it's popularity. Now, onto the... More

Lovely atmosphere and welcoming for the kids. Tasty menu and the gravy was amazing and the beef & mushroom pie was to die for. The kids menu was a breath of fresh air!

My family and I had an amazing lunch outside in the sun, even though it was 2 degrees Celsius. Kids enjoyed my pie and their chorizo and olive platter.

My boyfriend and I were pleasantly surprised by the variety of options at Stables, and the homey ambience. I got to experience the vegetarian options, the kumera/carrot soup & pear salad as entrees and goat cheese and polenta cake as a main. Everything was flavourful and well portioned, with fresh ingredients and not over seasoned. My boyfriend went for the... More

The Stables Restaurant and Wine Bar is in a good central spot with indoor and outdoor dining. We were here for lunch. We found the staff very friendly and helpful with choices for members of our group which had special eating requirements. The salt and pepper squid with wasabi aoli was one of the best that I have eaten, the... More

Enjoyed a family dinner which catered for my granddaughter and gluten free daughter in law with great food and cosy atmosphere. All of our meals were very good and the wine and beer selections were excellent.

Enjoy the ambience of our fully restored 1876 stone building. Open for lunch and brunch from 11am with dinner being served from 5pm. Our al fresco setting is extremely popular during the summer months or take a step back in time in our beautiful interior for fireside dining. Our food is classic and hearty, focusing on slow cooked New Zealand produce, Aged steaks from the grill, and fresh seasonal produce. An excellent array of Central Otago wines. Feel free to join us for a full dining experience or enjoy some beverages and tapas.
