“Lovely Experience ”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Rod & Cindy are generous and gracious hosts. Shared a beautiful antipasto platter with a bottle of "Black Rocks" Chardonnay 2012.......stunning, elegant, well balanced wine. A must try for Chardonnay lovers.
You are lucky to have Justin in your winemaking team.

“AlFresco Surprise”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

After a morning touring KeriKeri, my family and I headed to Marsden for lunch. We were happily surprised when we entered the front door to find a lush oasis in the backyard filled with various trees and planting so along with rows of vines plump with grapes. What a peaceful setting to enjoy lunch and a glass of wine. My husband and I shared an antipasto platter and our children dined on curry and chicken. Accompanied by wines from the vineyard, we left happy and sated.

“The best place to take Mum to lunch”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

The medium-sized menu has something for everyone, even kids, and it's all done well. Portions are just right, not overwhelming, but very satisfying, and the prices are very fair, perhaps even a little low, considering the quality of food and beauty of the setting. Living locally, this remains our standout favourite for a nice lunch out.

Breakfast here is a little-known bargain, competitive with the cafes in town, but with very high quality food and service, and again, the perfect vineyard/winery setting.

“Beautiful setting and food”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

My husband and I were visiting the Bay of Islands area, rented a car, and took a self guided wine tour. We decided to stop here for lunch and weren't disappointed. The scenery is wonderful, with the restaurant being open at the back to their pond and vineyard. We ordered their Fried Squid and Antipasto Platter to share. Both were lovely and the Antipasto Platter had plenty for two people with all kinds of dips, spreads, breads and salmon. I also ordered a very nice glass of Sauvignon blanc. Good prices for quality of food.
