The casual, cozy Bistro and Gardens

The Bistro is joined by our Cellar Door and a ‘wine and food’ heaven for a more relaxed bite. Busy and vibrant yet utterly unfussy and comfortable. The classic bistro cuisine such as steak frites and steamed mussels come with a modern Kiwi twist and are all matched by Hans' amazing collection of fine handcrafted wines, most available by the glass. The menu also features the most extensive artisan cheese selection with the perfect wine pairing. Oh, and did we mention that our own pastry chef bakes the most heavenly loaves of crunchy sourdough breads and whips up some pretty delicious sweet treats...

Enjoy 'al fresco' dining in summer under the dappled light of Plane trees within magnificent Mediterranean-style gardens. The perfect romantic setting with clipped box hedges, lavish roses, lavender, olive trees, beautiful water features and garden art is framed by our organic vineyard covered in wildflowers and a breath-taking mountain view. A feast for all senses - freshly prepared food from garden to plate, hand-crafted fine wines, caring service and stunning grounds evoke a Mediterranean lifestyle under the Marlborough sun.
