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.

Vidals has the most amazing platters and are fantastic for a wine and platter in the afternoon.
The staff and manager are very polite, helpful and efficient.

Never had a bad experience yet and always go back for more

Had a friend to visit who wanted to take us out for dinner so we chose our old (just down the road) favourite, Vidals Restaurant. Although it can be a bit barn-like when not full, the staff were very efficient, the service excellent, the food tasty and the wine to our palates.

Ate here as close to B&B. Tables well spaced but unfortunately led to some lack of atmosphere especially as wasn't very busy. Service and food both very good (steak and fish) and nicely presented.

menu and food all very good but not outstanding. Service was a bit chaotic as there were a number of large tables.

We wanted to go out for dinner where we could dress for dinner and eat good food in a nice restaurant. This fulfilled all our expectations and the food was delicious, perfectly cooked and much of it local produce.
