Description: Adjacent to the winery, Vidal Estate's restaurant has been a popular destination for locals and visitors since the opening of its doors in 1979. Open for lunch and dinner, the atmosphere is one of relaxed sophistication. A talented team in the kitchen share a food philosophy of fresh and simple dishes using really good produce. The focus is on creating clean simple flavours using New Zealand fresh, seasonal, organic products and taking inspiration from classical methods and dishes. Vidal Estate's comprehensive wine list, which showcases recent and aged Vidal Estate wines as well other top New Zealand wines, perfectly complements the dishes.

Just a walk around the corner from my Motel, had a lovely meal and could indulge in some lovely wine as didn't need the car.

More of a restaurant than your Napier vineyard experience, but a reasonable restaurant at that. Review reflects more that it wasn't what we were looking for - the place did nice food at reasonable prices, and I like their wine.

Dinner was good quality, and the price reasonable. Service was good. The signature dish of lamb was excellent. The aged scotch fillet was flavorful but a bit chewy, and the sauce over-salted. The best food so far in Hawkes bay.

Taken out to Vidals to celebrate a birthday - great anticipation - but! meals muddled up and the wrong meal given to our table - the smoked chicken salad (a main) was a measly salad and search for the chicken - the music was too loud and junky! and I did wonder if there was a front of house person as it seemed to be very disorganised. Will only go again if I hear better reports.

Firstly, I made our reservation for a table for 2 online, which is something I have never done before but I found it amazingly easy with a confirmation email immediately sent to me. We arrived to a very busy looking restaurant that had a great atmosphere, we were met by Hayley who checked our reservation and was so lovely, she told us that our table had been claimed by someone saying that they were us! But this wasn't a problem even though they were fully booked, she sat us at the bar with a complimentary drink until a table became available for us, which didn't take long at all. Our table was nicely located, the lighting in the restaurant was perfect so that you could see your food and each other but was intimate at the same time. The staff were all lovely and made us feel very welcome.
Hayley looked after us all evening very well. Now to the food, amazing, sensational, exceptional from start to finish. A great menu with plenty of choice and quality food cooked to perfection.I cannot fault a thing, the whole night was perfect from start to end and of course, the Vidals wine is one of the best around. Thank you Hayley & all the rest of the staff, everyone had service with a smile.
