Great location at the top of the hill ovr\erlooking the vineyards, together with lovely food & wine & you cant go wrong. They offer complimentary car service from the carpark to the restaurant, but it is worth the walk up the hill if you are able to take in the view & make some room for lunch!!

A wonderful view. Gorgeous food. Exceptionally priced.
Amazing service, with the nicest gentleman meeting you by your car to drive you up to the restaurant! A welcome that sets the scene of the entire staff and visit.

Well priced food and wine with all being delicious - the setting and the food.

A must do if you are in Blenheim.

It was a windy rainy day and when we drove up, there was smiling Crocodile Dundee in his van to give us a ride up the hill to the center and restaurant. What a magnificent place - architeecture, view that goes on forever, wine tasting at no charge and a really fantastic meal. I had the Sauvignon Blanc tasting platter that came with plenty of really delicious fresh (mostly veggie) food (my taste!) and 3 small glasses of their top Sauvingnon Blancs, Perfect meal, very gracious service - can't beat it - great place!

Usually when you visit an estate that has fabulous views and is among the largest wine producers in New Zealand you don't expect the restaurant to be very exciting.
Well not true here. We had an excellent lunch as recommended by our B and B (Antria). The wine tasting was also excellent.
