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 had a delicious 3 course set menu, only 28 dollars each, bargain. Lovely, friendly service. Highlight was the triple cooked chips.

We went to this resturant on New Years Eve. Even though the resturant was fully booked the service was fantastic. At one stage we had 3 waitressess coming to make sure that everything was ok. Meals were surpurb. Could not fault any of the meals that we had. Staff went the extra mile when we asked about purchasing the wine that we had that night. Nothing was a problem. Music was a little lou, but when I asked if it could be turned down it was. Very obliging. Would recommend it to amyone and would not hesitate to dine there again.

My father booked the restaurant for four and there was no problem when seated just before 7.30pm. The restaurant wasn't too busy and our waitress was fantastic. Very attentive. She was able to recite the specials very well. However, when it came to the menu there were many options from 'small plates' (entrees) to mains that were no longer available. My partner and I looked at each other and couldn't believe it. A restaurant of this high calibre shouldn't be running out of ingredients, especially at that time of night and not a full house! My father was embarrassed and disappointed. The food we ordered was lovely however, but dubious in returning...

Vidals has to be one of the best restaurants' in Hawke's Bay. It serves consistently great food along with excellent service.

A nice atmosphere among huge wine barrels set in an historic building. It was NZ's first winery restaurant. More recently it has be very smartly upgraded. Be sure to go, you won't be disappointed.
