“Excellent Food!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

My family have dined here on a number of occasions and have always had impeccable service and delicious food. We even attended a wonderful 21st there! I found the menu catered for a range of diners. I highly recommend the Wakanui Beef and the Lamb Rack. Both were delicious.

“Enjoyed very much.”
Reviewed 6 April 2014 via mobile

During my stay I had breakfast and dinner at Quench. Both were very nice. My only downer would be the price of the wine given the fact that the area is full of the stuff. Never the less food and service great!

“Quench your appetite here”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Lamb and Salmon we had. Tasty, great presentation. Wonderful service.

Pleasant atmosphere. The Lamb was moist with good sides of mash and root veggies. Wonderful mint whip sauce.

Salmon moist and tender. Perfectly cooked.

Unrushed by timely service.

“Not up to par with the hotel”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Good menu, but surprisingly mediocre execution, at both breakfast and dinner. We ordered the filet, medium rare, and it came out a solid medium although still tasty. But the mashed potato side was lumpy and lukewarm, and the green salad was literally about 3 lettuce leaves with onion, pepper slices and sprouts (which they put on top of everything, including the poached eggs at breakfast.). At breakfast, my eggs and toast came with just that - I had to ask for butter, as there was very little on the toast, and no jam was offered. My husband's omelette looked almost deep-fried, and he said it was good but had a scent and taste of fish, as if the pan had been used to cook fish previously and not thoroughly cleaned.

“Marlboroughs best kept secret!”
Reviewed 10 February 2014

Three of us dined in Chateau's restaurant, we had heard about the new menu and thought to give it a go. FINALLY a menu with something to please everyone... And everyone's pockets! The atmosphere was great and wait staff attentive and friendly. The awesome wine list just topped it off. We all had steak... And it was very yummy!! Priced well, and came out timely. I cannot pick any faults with this restaurant. We are certainly going back, and telling all our friends! Thank you guys for a relaxing evening out!!
