Standard Thursday night fare. Decent entrees (Olives and breads) and mains were a decent size. My Med-Rare steak was med at best but still yum. Good service and attentive wait staff.

Vidal offers a wonderful two course lunch for $ 27.50 per person currently. The food is exquisite and there is a good choice of menu options. You can choose and entree and main, or a main and dessert. We thoroughly recommend it.

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.
