The restaurant at Hans Herzog Winery was recommended to us by a friend. We were so pleased. The food was wonderful - rack of lamb and ribeye. The staff were gracious and so attentive. We had made reservations at the bistro but wanted to change to the main dining room and they accommodated us with that. The little lobby was... More

I wanted my family to love this place as I've been before and really enjoyed the experience however, the wine tasting lets it down. Not the wine itself - which is lovely - but a very confusing 3-category wine tasting system. It's not very customer friendly.

Having traveled Queenstown to Blenheim via west coast we did a lot of eating/wine tastings. Whereas the wines were not my favorite they were good, but the food was some of the best we had on the south island. Service was great, setting was wonderful. A don't miss bistro

Exceptional wines at this boutique winery. The Bistro is a casual place where the food and service was not as exceptional as expected.

My wife and I went to Herzog for lunch today. Lunch at the Bistro was faultless. The food was superb, the wine divine, the service attentive but not in your face (unlike some other Kiwi places) and the setting is idyllic. The bill was commensurate with the experience. This was not our first time at Hertzog and it won’t be... More

We went as a large group to celebrate a major birthday. Food was excellent, service friendly and prompt. Portions small but more than adequate. Everyone very happy

The Hans Herzog winery is a beautiful winery and the staff appear to be very knowledgeable and very polite and professional. The wines they have are mostly white wine which the whole region is known for due to its temperature range. They do have a couple of reds but mainly Pinot noir. The wine tasting is not free and there... More

We went to the bistro for lunch since dinner would have been out of our price range. The food is good but not worth the price unless it's a sunny day and you can make it a long leisurely lunch in the garden. There is nothing wrong with the food; it's just when so much is charged, expectations are going... More

Just the perfect balance of exquisite food, expertly married to exquisite wines and service beyond the norm. Highly recommended as one of the best if not the best in NZ.

For our anniversary my partner prepaid a $1,800 package. This was a complete joke. Our kitchen discovery with their masterchefs was watching a guy chop carrots for Tuesdays soup. No presentation at all of Menus for both our 5 course decastation dinner or Wine to match. Staff were unprofessional, untidy and rude. The entertainment lounge and the restaurant were shut... More
