I was so looking forward to a special lunch at Hans Herzog. However, with the exception of the garden, I was faintly disappointed. The menu was small and did not offer me anything particularly exciting and the food portions, though beautifully presented and quite tasty, were small. I didn't leave hungry but nor was I really satisfied. This was a... More

The service was slow and very impersonal. We would of liked to have our wines to match our course but we could not get the wine ordered. The food was very average We have eaten there before and the menu does not change. We had 3 courses and all went away feeling hungry. I think the management need to assess... More

We had the 7 course menu with wine pairing for dinner. Overall, the food presentation looked nice but it didn't taste as good as it looked. The flavors were nice, don't get me wrong. But nothing spectacular, especially for the price. It's like meeting a pretty girl for the first time and realizing that there's not much beneath that face...... More

This was our 3rd visit in 9 years, but the best, by far. Go for its beautiful garden, fine wines (esp loved the Spirit of Marlborough Merlot-Cabernet Franc), and delicious food. We had the pumpkin soup, creamy yet light, followed by mains of fillet and fish. The fillet was a very large portion, perfectly cooked and accompanied by a delightful... More

The tour was lots of fun and had a very personal touch to it. The dog keeping us company was just an added bonus, she is lovely. The food is top notch and would definitely recommend there for dining. Great wine matching with the food. Could have stayed there all day!

With so many wonderful dining options in this corner of Marlborough its difficult to pick just a few for your stay, and especially hard when your not been to the area before. We are so pleased that we chose Hans Herzog. The setting was amazing with a quiet perfectly manicured garden, the service was excellent, and the food was simply... More

This is a really great boutique vineyard. The guide Ben took us around the Vineyard and I am really glad that among all other vineyards in Blenheim we chose this one to visit. Really enlightening to know how the process of making wines is a passion. An interesting thing about this vineyard was that all the wines are made here... More

Undoubtedly the most beautiful vineyard in the region, Hans Herzog is a true upper class artesian winery. They're tour, though expensive (15 NZD per person), was long and informative. The tour covered the vines, the factory, the making process, the cellar and included 3 tastings (only). The wines are great and unique but prices higher than all the rest. As... More

Beautiful setting and good service, all let down by very, very poor cooking. Our lunch had some bad, basic (and totally avoidable with a little care!) mistakes, which, given the pricing, is unforgivable. A large prawn garnish on the soup had been under-cooked inside a won ton and was raw. Worse still, the black digestive tract had not been removed.... More

Ate dinner at the Bistro one night while staying in Blenheim. Lovely place - wine was amazing and we had a wonderful and surprising meal. Order the homemade breads with the hummus which was wonderful. Eye fillet steak was fantastic - one of the best steaks I have ever had, so so good and flavorful served with red onions and... More
