One lunch and two dinners - all very good and reasonably priced.
Service was excellent with good advice regarding portion size and wine choices.
My wifes main course of a fish stew was not really hot enough but she doesn't like to complain.

One of the oldest wineries in the Hawkes Bay area this beautiful building reeked of charm and lifetimes of confidence. We ate in the dining room in fine dining style but with staff who were more relaxed and confident than normal silver service servers. They served in informal dress and quickly revealed their deep knowledge of their wines and the dishes on the menu. The food was very good and atmosphere historic and relaxed. The entrance is almost hidden away. A historic experience that reveals a lot about the development of the wine industry in NZ.

We took overseas relatives as we wanted to impress them that we have top eateries too, and we were not disappointed. We arrived a little early so they could take photos of this historic building and see the view. We were asked whether we would like to be shown to our tables or fill in time in the lounge seats near the bar. We decided to start our meal early. The lamb and beef signature dish were excellent - wish I'd ordered that, but I did enjoy the pork. The others ordered dessert which they enjoyed but I was glad that I ordered the cheese platter - really great. Our table was by the window where we could see the lights of Napier.

My wife and I came to this restaurant about 10 years ago and had a spectacular meal. This time around it seemed like the staff were more interested in try to feed us and get us out of the door – we arrived and left in well under one hour – for a ‘superior’ restaurant this is very quick.

There were plenty of options on the menu to choose from and the food was very well presented and all of the dishes we had tasted really good – but we could not get over the ‘rushed’ feeling.

Would we return, probably, as the food was very good.

We met a friend here for a special lunch. The venue and service were great not obtrusive but very helpful. we al enjoyed a ligght lunch of fish of the day, of course accompanied by beautiful wines. The museum was very interesting and preserves the historic character of the very old vineyard and seminary.
