We drove from Queenstown to Cromwell for the day. On the return trip we stopped at Gibbston winery & restaurant. I had the pasta special for lunch. It was very good. The location is very good to sit outside and enjoy a leisurely lunch. We enjoyed our afternoon meal

We had a lovely family lunch with 16 of us. The service was great and everyone's meals were delicious. Thanks for a great afternoon.

We had the opportunity to lunch here while on a wine tasting small bus tour. The selections included cheeses, breads, olives, meats, pasta, and light meals. Very local and fresh! Truly delightful. Of course several wines available to accompany your meal. There is also a cheesery and gift shop,on the property.

We stopped here after being told it was a must do, well it was full of buses, which isn't a good sign, the service was so slow, and the cheese board, tapas was just average, there are better options nearby.

We had a fantastic plate of cheese and Mediterranean appetizers (call it antipasti, mezze or tapas, it's all about the same) accompanied of 2 wines from the own winery. Excellent. Food and service alike.

Very nice wine. Friendly staff. Thebtastibg was great. Food was delicious, but the menu was a bit small and quite expensive. If you are looking for an upscale experience, wine and food matching, this is your place. Not for the limited budget or hardy meal searchers.

We made an inspired decision to stop at this winery for lunch. Despite being very busy we were given a table within 10 minutes. The food and wine were excellent. The service was professional and delightful. We had the serendipitous experience of meeting the winery owners who sat on the next table. They very unselfishly shared the gorgeous Arthur (aged...

Lovely food, manager not on top service. Had to constantly ask for drinks. Ordered special of the day cake and it was sold out ? How can you sell out when you know you are fully booked. No apology from manager or offer of anything else. Try to buy prints in gift shop to be sent to Australia only to... More

Our group of 7 had a very pleasant luncheon at this venue. Before the lunch we enjoyed a wine tasting in the "cave" , which was informative and helpful in choosing the local wines to accompany our meals. Thank you Clare. The restaurant has both inside dining and tables with shades in a lovely courtyard. The weather was very kind... More
