We called unannounced while driving home from Nelson, in the hope of getting lunch on a Saturday. They scratched their heads a bit, but eventually found us a table on the veranda. We both had the open steak sandwich, which was absolutely delicious. The steaks were perfectly cooked to our wishes, and the accompaniments gave a range of tasty flavours.... More

We went for Lunch on Sunday. Nice plates, solid options. Each dish was done well, and had good flavors. Wines are just okay, but, nothing wrong with them. They certainly are trying harder than most in Blenheim, but nothing like Napa.

My wife and I went to Rock Ferry Restaurant recently for lunch while on vacation in area. The food was very good. The service was not. We sat down at 1:15 and ordered right after sitting down but did not get our food for good 30 minutes. Very disappointing. No apology from server. Oblivious to situation. I recommend to seek...

I was taken by friends in Blenheim for lunch and everything was terrific. The fish of the day with a sautéed mushroom topping with a tiny dash of truffle oil and freshly squeezed lemon, was exquisite and the nicest meal I have had so far on this five week trip. We shared two wonderful desserts and some tasty wines. Highly,... More

Grab a table (make a reservation) outdoors in an idyllic setting for a really great lunch. Vegetarian? Wonderful fresh vegetable dishes. Love meat? Great steak sandwich. And save room for the beautiful desserts. Not inexpensive, but this is a classy place with delicious food.

The good: superb lunch, warm welcome, nice set up for wine tasting - high bar stools at shared high tables, convivial informative host who serves 5 wines at the table, shady garden with pleasant terrace to eat out on as alternative to restaurant. Not so good: felt quite rushed throughout as though they were pushing maximum numbers through.

We enjoyed our wine tasting here and decided we liked their desert wine enough to buy a bottle. The Sauvignon Blanc was also good and would have bought more wines except for the fact we already had too many. It is a smaller vinyard and is sometimes overlooked but we would definately put it on a stop for a future... More

We dined here for a birthday and had a wonderful time. We started with tastings at the cellar door. The cellar door manager was knowledgable, welcoming and friendly. Although a small menu the food was very good and the restaurant staff were very accomodating and helpful. We will dine with you again, hopefully with better weather next time so that... More

This was our first restaurant/vineyard stop on our big south Island road trip. We had arrived late in the day and did not have a booking, but Rock Ferry managed to find us a table. Would pay to make a booking if you know your schedule so you are not disappointed.Cannot praise this winery enough as the food and wine... More

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
