Wairau River Wines Cellar Door & Restaurant
Younger sister Caroline Rose and her partner Tane Malcolm are the head chefs, preparing a simple and delicious menu focusing on fresh, Marlborough ingredients that changes with the seasons. The Restaurant is a casual environment, a reflection of how the Rose family entertains at home.
Open year round, the Cellar Door is the perfect place to sample the latest Wairau River wines and learn more about Marlborough and its grape growing history.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience last Sunday at Wairau River Wines Restaurant.
The atmosphere was quite lively initially as everyone had come inside to dine due to the inclement weather, however the professional & friendly staff and the delicious food & wine more than made up for this and it soon calmed down once meals started to arrive & everyone settled in to their food.
It was also lovely to showcase some marvellous Marlborough produce to our overseas guests who really enjoyed the visit. Thank you Wairau River Wines :)
Love the food and wine! Staff were friendly and helpful
Outstanding food - the cheese souflee is the one to have. Brilliant souflee and lovely and well dressed salad to go with it. Staff are very friendly and efficient. Indoor space is very attractive though with hard surfaces everywhere it can be a bit noisy when busy. Lots of lovely outdoor seating overlooking the vineyards is available.
Double baked soufflé excellent as usual
Loved the whole experience. Just outstanding. Thank you
We had a wonderful lunch in a very pleasant environment.
Can’t recommend highly enough - delicious food, beautiful spot and the best wines. Staff also so helpful and friendly, we were served by Lynette who was the best. Overall an awesome time!!
We chose the prawns and the soufflé thanks to the waiter’s advise and both were delicious. The prawns were absolutely perfect and quite the nicest we have had for ages.
This was our second time eating at Wairau River, and the food was just as delicious as the first time (although, it is worth noting that they had updated/tweaked their menu from last time. Keeping it nice and fresh!). We love the location, and enjoyed sitting outside next to the vineyard. We enjoyed a bottle of Summer Riesling with our meal, and it was a great accompaniment!
