“Always great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

This is my favourite place in Kerikeri ....sitting on the grape vine covered terrace, looking out over the vinyard and the pond, sipping fabulous Pinot Gris and enjoying a fabulous meal served by friendly and kind people. The menu changes regularly, but the bread platter with dips has been a constant treat and the curry, when it makes its way onto the menu is great! The deserts are decadent and beautifully presented ... and of course, there is a Marsden Estate wine to go with every dish. Try the award winning Pinot Gris or the Black Rocks Chardonnay - you can't go wrong. Cindy, the owner, and Terry, the fabulous head waiter, are kind, funny and most accommodating. Always a treat! A must for anyone going to Kerikeri! Thank you for all the fabulous lunches!

“Superb wines and great hospitality”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

I visited the Marsden winery with my mum from the Waikato and my Uncle from the UK. I was driving so they could enjoy the amazing local wines on offer and Cindy, the owner, was very accommodating and shared her knowledge and passion of the wines with us.

The Pinot Gris was the star for us, a beautiful white wine and on the reds, the Syrah, was our favourite.

Well worth visiting, just like the beautiful little town of Kerikeri.

“Excellent wine and platters”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

Very nice tasting and selection of excellent wines. Was our favourite by far and no fee as well. Owners and staff were very friendly. Platter was amazing. The grounds are beautiful. Right by the airport as well. Must stop by.

“Enjoyable food and wine”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We booked a table overlooking the garden and enjoyed the excellent menu. I normally prefer Sauvignon Blanc to Chardonnay but the winery's Black Rocks Chardonnay proved exceptional and not to be missed. After a long and enjoyable lunch we asked for a taxi to take us back to our hotel but the management insisted on driving us back in person, an example of the quality of service! My only small criticism is that the tables seemed rather too closely spaced, but given the deserved popularity of the restaurant that is understandable.

“Great Chardonnay”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

We came to Marsden Estate for lunch and wine tasting. All of the wines we tried were nice, but the Chardonnay is great, really a cut above the rest of their selection. The food was good & we enjoyed eating in the conservatory with grapevines overhead and fantails cheeping nearby.
