Went on a GrabOne 3-course. Cannot talk highly enough of the great food, great wine and great friendly service! Whitebait fritter wasn't part of the 3-course menu however the chef went the extra mile to service us (2 diners) half a portion each of the whitebait entrée! (we paid additional to the GrabOne cost for this, which was no problem for us).
Menu items we had : prawn cocktail (this one was great!) ; venison salad (perfect!) ; pork belly main (by far the yummiest pork belly I've ever had!) ; rack of lamb (lamb was perfect, mash sensational, loved the Portobello mushroom with tomato ; dessert was crème brulee (loved the fruit salad and shortbread cookie with the dessert).
Had the 2010 chardonnay - very very nice!
Will be back summertime for another round of great food and great wine here!

Casual meal out turned out far better than expected. Venison entre and lamb rack main were both cooked to perfection, well cooked on the outside and pink throughout. Death by Chocolate desert finished of a great meal. The vineyard's (Linden) 2010 Syrah complimented the meal well and had good hints of fruit, chocolate and pepper and was very well priced at $38. Mains (including sirloin steak) were around the $30 mark although they apparently have specials on Thursday.
Valley d'Vine is located about 20 minutes north of Napier.
