Had a great lunch, late summer under the vines outside on a great day where the service was great and the food was excellent. We will be back and bring friends here. Take the time to have a wine tasting before lunch, well worth it!

10 of us all enjoyed our meals in the garden. Most had the lamb done 2 ways and declared it very good. I had the venison a little tough but delicious. Bluff oysters didn’t disappoint but thought they were a little on the small side...More

Loved the vibe of the place, so relaxed with the sun shining through the vines. The oysters were lovely. Also the steak was excellent.

Stopped by for lunch on our Napier winery tour. The food was delicious, the wine pairings matched well, and the setting - sitting under the vines. Fantastic place for a meal. Highly recommend.

Open for lunches 7 days and dinner Wednesday to Saturday, Black Barn Bistro is the perfect place to spend an hour or two absorbing the atmosphere of Wine Country. It is in the heart of the vineyard surrounded by vines and a table on the large generous veranda lets you look right out across the region. In warmer weather a courtyard covered by a canopy of grapes is also a perfect place to enjoy lunch and a glass of wine. The restaurant menu is light, fresh and delicious. There is an emphasis on freshly grown Hawkes Bay produce, the selection changes with the seasons. The bistro is available for private functions, evening and during the day, it is also the perfect venue for a very limited number of weddings, for bookings or enquiries please give us a call.
