Went with 3 other friends, no one could fault any of the meals...really delicious. Went to cellar and had a tasting of white wines and the port (i bought two bottles of the port!). Service could not have been any more efficient or friendly...well organised wait staff. Lovely surroundings with an indoor/outdoor flow.

The vineyard has a lovely covered terrace for lunch, with grass down to a pond. It is a great setting. The food was amazing, a wide variety of lunches were ordered and everyone at our table loved their choice. Definitely recommend the creme brulee for dessert! Only negative point is that they only have 1 highchair which was already in... More

We loved coming to Marsden Estate! Setting is very calm and peaceful with a vine covered patio overlooking gardens/lake. Service by the staff was excellent. We shared a platter for lunch which was excellent. Highly recommend.

We had high expectations after a local's recommendation to dine at the winery but was disappointed. The service was dismal although the restaurant was not full. I struggled to choose from the menu but eventually settled on the sadly bland chicken noodle salad. My husband chose the steak and salad and was impressed with the steak and not much else.... More

If you want to do ONE winery visit and you are in the North Island, this is the place to go. first off, the wines are amazing, and the sirrah in particular was spot-on. we had a bottle of Chardonnay with a huge plate of antipasto - basically a good variety of cheeses and cold meats, and a few side...

And you had better accept it before heading out for a meal at Marsden Winery for the combination of delightful setting, fabulous service, to-die-for cuisine and their justifiably famous wines will surely painfully drive that truth home otherwise. Go, if only to have an opportunity to taste their awesome production which is produced in such "confidential" quantities that it surely... More

We are locals and always enjoy an occasional lunch here. It is a pleasure to while away an hour or two here. Make sure you do a wine tasting to select your dining wine.

A wonderful place to enjoy fine and food and wine with friends/relatives or just by yourself! The menu has something for everyone and if the entrees and mains are not enough for you the desserts are divine! We enjoyed a wonderful lunch with two teenagers in tow. The Niçoise salad is excellent as is the gnocchi..... The girls then devoured... More
