We came with high expectations after having read the reviews. Unfortunately, this turned out to be the most expensive and yet the least satisfying meal during our 2 weeks in NZ. We went for the "Trust the Chef" menu and while the presentation and plating looked pleasant, we found the food to be just.. plain salty. Definitely wouldn't have paid... More

Amazing! We did the "trust the chef" dinner with matched wines and it was sensational. We enjoyed every dish, and surprisingly every wine too. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. The kitchen was running a little slow on the night we dined, but we were enjoying the wine and atmosphere so we didn't mind too much. A pricey experience (NZD$330 for... More

Just warning everyone ! This is place is overpriced .... we eat out every week and never have a problem and I can't believe how dreadful the food was ... it's expensive and the portions are small and no flavour and the staff don't seem to care !

You MUST visit, this was the best meal of my life! The long lunch is great for a family occasion, we celebrated my parents wedding anniversary with the chef's choice (which were brilliant by the way). Everything was 5 star excellence including the wine and service, the lamb shoulder was magnificent! I would travel back here just for lunch in... More

Took our family here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The weather could have been more accommodating but everything else was perfect. Divine food, attentive service, memorable wine and all round best afternoon. You have to go for the "Trust the Chef" - an explosion of flavours to try and the lamb shoulder just amazing. Thank you Amisfield.

Worth a flight from the UK to experience the trust the chef menu. The dry reisling is a must. Book well in advance. The kids menu is simple but incredibly delicious. My son liked his meal so much, he ordered an additional meal! Worth a trip to NZ!

Amisfield Winery Bistro has won national awards for its food, and is always highly rated. We had missed out on a lunch here a few years ago, so when we decided to return I booked well in advance to ensure we had a relaxed Sunday lunch. It was a sunny day, and we were able to sit outside enjoying the... More

Wonderful setting, great menu with the trust the chef menu and matching wines with excellent service. My favorite place to dine in Queenstown- the only downside is that to taxi here is a fixed price of $60 from Queenstown! You have to arrange some transport if you want to indulge in the wines.

My wife & I popped into the Cellar Door this afternoon, we bought a couple bottles of wine and asked to have a look at the Menu for Dinner. We were informed they have a 5 course degustation called "Trust the chef". We booked and turned as advised just after 5pm. Whilst I love eating out, I'm not much of... More
