Description: Rockferry Wines is owned by husband and wife team Tom and Fiona, proud producers of world-class certified organic wines, made right here in New Zealand. Our philosophy is to make real wines which speak of their home; to express the pure distinct flavours from our organic estate vineyards in Marlborough and Central Otago. It's the way we live. We welcome you to visit our team and taste our wines at our cellar door and restaurant in Marlborough. Based around seasonally inspired cooking and our range of organically grown wines, the cellar door and restaurant is a great showcase for the honest, down-to-earth produce that New Zealand's South Island is justifiably famous for. We look forward to seeing you soon

The setting is devine. .. option of inside or out on balcony or in the garden. Very romantic. All food is fresh and local. Fish comes very highly recommended. Service is excellent...nothing is a problem.

My friend, who dines out regularly, shouted me lunch here for my birthday recently. The outdoor setting is quiet. When we ordered, our fish meal, it was to be served on mash. We asked if this could be changed for a salad. There was no fuss or problem to satisfy our request. Good range of wines to accompany a tasty meal.

My wife and I visited for lunch. We made reservations and were told there were no tables available outside.

We arrived and were seated inside, the staff were most attentive and courteous. We explained that we don't react well to garlic. Our waitress indicated that their chef was a big garlic fan....this was quite obvious from the strong smell emanating from the kitchen. She offered to check to see what would be suitable for us to eat.

After being seated we noticed that contrary to the report we received when making our reservation, there were empty tables outside.

The waitress returned and offered us a choice of three dishes, and explained they would be prepared especially for us.

We ordered a bottle of chardonnay which was excellent, and awaited our steak sandwiches. They were at best average, and served with an avocado puree which had so much lemon in it that it overpowered everything else.

The smell of garlic got so strong that I was forced to go outside, and leave my meal, which was no great loss. The stench of garlic permeated everything including our clothes....awful.

We won't return.
