Good meals and attentive service from the wait staff, who appeared to work well together. Lovely views of the Marlborough Sounds from the restaurant

Obviously a great view and lovely staff but unfortunately for the rating the menu choice / selection and food quality lets it's down. Table layout quite poky. Lower prices would seem prudent.

Excellent meal this evening. Not a huge choice but everything we ate was well cooked and well presented. Service was friendly and fairly efficient. The views were not good, they were great!

This is 5-star dining at its very best in a pure, natural environment that simply cannot be matched.

Watch the sun set across the bay, or the moon as it sails above the distant hills. On cooler nights, nestle in by the open fire with a glass of Marlborough's finest and a dining experience you will never forget.

As we wish to ensure that dining in the Foredeck will be a sophisticated and
romantic dining experience for you, we ask that young children not be in the
restaurant after 6pm.
