This restaurant is situated on a rise in the middle of the Brancott vineyards and the views are absolutely incredible. But, most importantly, the service and the food are, quite simply, beyond comparison. Despite the restaurant being very busy, we were found a delightful table and the service was excellent. The John Dory fish course was genuine "melt in the... More

A great place to go for lunch and look out over acres and acres of beautiful grape vines. Fantastic Marlborough scenery. Limited choice of mains (4), but good service and the meal was delicious.

We went to Brancott Estate for lunch for the first time and upon driving into the entrance of their driveway, it was easy to mistake that we were in the wrong place as the restaurant/cellar door was nowhere in sight. It didn't take long before we saw a building that was situated on a hill and when we drove into... More

Its crowdy. Think touringcarbusses driving up and down. Staff were asians, probably to suit the needs of their clientele, and were hard to communicate with since they didn't speak proper English. Location is nice, wines are too. The entree was decent, but the main dish wasn't made of fresh, home made ingredients (I had the paneer salad, with "stuff" more... More

Went on a wine tour and had lunch at this lovely winery- great food and wine. Bought 2 bottles - 1 Chardonnay and 1 Pinot and I'm looking forward to the time when my partner and I can enjoy them here in Australia!

The most amazing View overlooking the vineyards. The menu is a little limited, but the food was beautiful, wine is reasonable priced. The service showed a lack of training, definitely slipped since my last visit a couple of years ago.

On recommendation, we came for a wine tasting and lunch. Both were outstanding. We tasted the letter series wines from Brancott. My wife had the fish of the day (snapper) with the letter series sauv blanc and I had the salmon pate. Both were beautifully presented and very tasty and the recommended chardonnay with the salmon pate was perfect. The... More

We had lunch here last weekend and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We shared a tasting plate of smoked salmon pate, goats cheese croquettes, melon with prosciutto ham, hummus and home baked bread. The flavours were fantastic. We also had a bottle of their chardonnay to accompany it. The views over the vineyards and across the valley are quite spectacular... More
