For over 30 years Vidals continues to provide us with a great atmosphere, excellent selection of drinks and has maintained a high level of service for both lunch and dinner. Will continue to have pleasure going to Vidals.

Adjacent to the winery, Vidal Estate's restaurant has been a popular destination for locals and visitors since the opening of its doors in 1979. Open for lunch and dinner, the atmosphere is one of relaxed sophistication. A talented team in the kitchen share a food philosophy of fresh and simple dishes using really good produce. The focus is on creating clean simple flavours using New Zealand fresh, seasonal, organic products and taking inspiration from classical methods and dishes. Vidal Estate's comprehensive wine list, which showcases recent and aged Vidal Estate wines as well other top New Zealand wines, perfectly complements the dishes.
