Had my parents 60th birthday party here, amazing setting and wonderful food. Marquee was great, heaps of space for over 100 guests and a full band. Food was to die for, staff were super helpful and wine was superb. Highly recommend A+++++

Today was Father's Day, so I took a 92 year old Gisborne gentleman for lunch. We were met by a delightfully, friendly, smiling lady named Barbara who found us a quiet table, whilst after listening to our brief previous encounter, whisked our meal to top priority. After enjoying the warm ambiance for a few minutes, our colorful,delicious meals arrived. The... More

We were greeted by the pleasant hostess, it was well staffed and we didn't have to wait too long for our meals to arrive even though they were very busy. The food was nicely presented and of high standard in quality and taste. Wines and beers to match. The home cut pasta was perfect

We double dated with our daughter and a nice young man for dinner here. The wine list is all local, and mostly from this particular winery. The food was delicious and expertly plated. A nice place for a romantic foodie meal.

We were recommended to try The Vines and had a wonderful lunch. The vineyard restaurant uses local produce and matched their wines to each dish. The food was generous and very well prepared, the wine similarly good. Service was very friendly and attentive.
