Recommended Blenheim and Marlborough winery restaurants


You will be spoilt for choice from the great dining places in Marlborough - these are a few favourites.

We recommend that reservations are made in advance and are happy to do this for you.

Wither Hills Restaurant

This great restaurant is within the Wither Hills winery slightly raised above the vineyard landscape. The food and service is really good. One of the favourites for lunch during wine tours.

Allan Scott Twelve Trees Restaurant

Twelve Trees Restaurant offers a regularly changing day time menu reflecting seasonal local specialties and complimenting the range of wines for which Allan Scott has become famous.

The restaurant of rammed earth construction provides a very pleasant environment and the service is good.

Raupo- Riverside Café & Restaurant

Raupo- is situated in the heart of Blenheim overlooking the Taylor River. Open 7 days and nights starting with breakfast from 7.30 – 11.00am. Lunch is available from 11.30 – 2.30 and the evening menu is served from 5.30 until late.

Wairau River Restaurant

Rammed earth classic colonial building houses the very popular winery restaurant, Wairau River.

Enjoy delicious food at lunchtime in a relaxed informal environment either outside under the grapevine pergolas and veranda or inside beside the large open fire in winter.

Hotel d'Urville Restaurant

Open for dinner 7 nights a week Hotel d'Urville's menu is superb.

Located in Blenheim town centre, they aim to create an unforgettable dining experience with fine food, wonderful wines and excellent service. The restaurant has been awarded the Hallmark of Excellence Award for culinary achievement in Beef & Lamb for the last four consecutive years

Herzog Restaurant and Bistro

In the award winning restaurant, you choose from the totally indulgent famous ‘Herzog Degustation Menu’ 5 or 3 course menu or the sensational Herzog a la carte dishes.

Or the Herzog Cellar Door Bistro. Relax in beautiful Mediterranean gardens with views of their single vineyard while experiencing casual lunchtime cuisine. The same top chefs, but with everyday prices means our bistro has become a firm favourite with tourists and locals alike.

In Picton

If you fancy a change from the vineyards, Picton is a very pretty port town only 18 kilometers away.  

Open for lunch and dinner, Le Cafe offers excellent food, some times live musical entertainment, and always a good view across the harbour.

We also recommend for lunch, Gusto, a charming cafe in High Street, Picton.
