We arrived at 7:30 pm without a reservation on a Friday and were warmly welcomed. Our table overlooked a nondescript green space. In contrast 2 the table view,, the plating & taste of our Beef Cheeks with roasted veggies for 2 was delightful! We enjoyed Whitehaven Pinot Noir & a refreshingly light garden salad tossed with olive oil & lemon as accompaniments. The service was attentive and surrounding serene. I would have rated the meal excellent if some soothing background music was included. Overall, we would highly recommend this hidden gem.

Dear Catherine H,

Thank you for your review of your recent dining experience with us.

The slow roasted beef cheeks are a firm favorite at the restaurant and personally one of my favorite dishes. Nothing beats a nice glass of local Pinot Noir and a hearty meal.

I trust the remainder of your time In Marlborough was enjoyable and we look forward to have you dine with us in the future.

Kind Regards
Travis Moriarty

Had dinner, fantastic new menu, we thought it was one of the best we had on our trip. Slow roasted beef cheeks and the ravioli were superb. Staff helpful and wine was great ( merlot )

We were spending our last night in NZ and really was looking forward to eating at a top restaurant. As we found out later, the waitress and the chef "were in training" (that was how they described it) There were only 4 other people in the restaurant during the entire time we were there. After waiting for the main I went back and searched out the waitress and the chef. When I pointed out that we had waited an hour for our meal, there repy was, "I did not know you were in a hurry". I almost exploded. Finally they brought our the main. The special chicken for the night was tough and appeared to have just been thawed. The Seafood Chowder was so salty is was hardly editable. It was supposed to come with sourdough bread but did not....so again I went back to the kitchen to get the bread.
Avoid this place at all cost until they get their act (and staff) together.

Staying at Marlborough Vintners Hotel as part of a road trip around NZ, and as it was my partner's "special" birthday decided to eat at the restaurant. We were not disappointed. Pleasantly met and shown to a table over looking the garden. Offered a choice of water and when deciding on our choice of wine, helped among by the waitress who have advice on the wines on offer, and gave us a taste of one....which we eventually chose.
The food..delicious....from the avocado and goats cheese starter , and the green salad and goats cheese, to the succulent steak ciimws to perfection. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal, and interesting conversation with the girls, but must apologise for keeping them back, as we were last go leave and too busy chatting. Helpful advice also given for our planned cycle ride for the next day.

We had dinner 3 nights in a row at this restaurant because we stayed at the hotel ( actually a wonderful apartment ). The food at the Vintners room was excellent, although 3 dinners pushed the limits.
