Nice view. Sophisticated atmosphere. Food was tasty - once we got our order. Wine list OK but lame for a restaurant in the Marlborough wine region. Unfortunately we experienced seriously BAD service for an upscale restaurant. Even with reservations on a Saturday evening and tons...More

We were recommended this place when doing a wine tasting and booked for our return visit on the way back up. Nothing particularly wrong, food was fine and service was slow but okay and we left feeling slightly underwhelmed.Perhaps we'd overhyped it in our heads.

We enjoyed a delicious meal in a good ambience. I ordered the rolled pork, having seen it delivered to the next table and it was excellent. The rest of us enjoyed steaks. Service was great and the atmosphere convivial. Will definitely dine here again.

Called at this Riverside restaurant without reservation. Got us in within 30 mins and the ambience and food is superb. Great food combinations on the menu and excellent patisseries on offer as deserts.
