From fat hen miniature tacos, smoked koura, steak tartare, paua pie, smoked Canterbury eel, trumpeter, tomato consommé,... More

We had a "trust the chef" dinner with wine pairings. It was one of the best meals of our lives. The pairings were perfect. Everything was brilliantly timed, apportioned, and presented -- and tasted delicious. An equivalent meal in Napa would cost $300 per person. Apparently lunch is when this place is busy. Dinner was very quiet and we had... More

Stunning cellar door and bistro. Tastings 10$ for five wines, refunded if you buy a bottle. Beautiful views through picture windows. Classy terrace. Food and service looked outstanding. Customers all well dressed for Friday lunch at our visit although we were welcomed in our outdoor gear and the children played outside. Superb Pinot noir.

This my fourth dining experience at Amisfield. The service is exemplary and many thanks to our Frenchman Ronan, Daniel the Kiwi and David the MD. Also had a swell time with the Brazilian Rodriguo in the tasting area. The ambience is very much Central Otago with rock and timber. I was keen to order ala carte but my winemaker friend... More

Def make sure you book this place well in advance - it is full for lunch and dinner every day of the year and with good reason. We did "Trust The Chef" which was delicious and very good value for money. The restaurant is only a 10 minute drive from the airport so we went here for lunch on our... More

Had the "Trust the Chef" - amazing. $95 per head excluding wine - well worth it. So beautiful, eating food I would never have eaten and absolutely delicious.

Beautiful food and wine. We took the trust the chef menu and were wowed by the balanced flavours and stunning presentation. Really loved the lowburn reisling. One of the best winery's in the whole of NZ

The Chef's Surprise lunch is truly First Class. Take a cab - four glasses of wine if you opt for the alcohol. Service matched the quality food preparation and presentation.

Very hard to go past this! 5 star quality. 6 of us went and had the"Trust the chef" option. Everyone left having had a fantastic range of 6 dishes and matching wines-excellent quantity and quality of wine. You need to be prepared and book in advance around busy times.

As a returnee we chose this time to trust ourselves and order from the a la carte menu. 2 entrees and 2 mains to share was more than enough for my husband and I. The duck was cooked to perfection as was the snapper main. The beetroot with the buffalo milk could not be faulted. We are lovers of Amisfield... More
