There was a large (and noisy) group of us and we chose the platters to feed the masses. The platters were great and a lot of thought had gone into ensuring local provenance of the food. These were enjoyed with suitable selection of St Clair's very fine wines. Service was professional and attentive which all added to a very enjoyable... More

My review will definitely be impacted by the incredibly gorgeous day we had to enjoy St. Clair Vineyard Kitchen. Sunny and mid 70s with nary a hint of wind. Absolutely perfect. My husband and I also probably got the best table for two tucked into a copse of grape vines with views of the vineyard and mountains. We started off... More

We had the most wonderful lunch here. We met a local and they said this is their favorite place for lunch. We sat outside in the vinyard. The vines were right next to us. We sat on comfortable chairs that were under the cover of a roof. There was a bar in this part of the restaurant and also high... More

We had an excellent mean with equally good wine. Really no drawbacks. Service good. I'd go back again.

We headed here to have lunch with some relatives whilst on honeymoon and had some lovely food and wine in the sun. The gardens were lovely to sit in and the food was fantastic, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!

We chose a very busy day to have a vineyard lunch, but the good people at St Clair were very friendly and accommodating, and made us feel welcome. While the wines on offer weren't to our tastes (though they are fines wines, just not to our palate) we had a lovely meal here. While the menu did not particularly suit... More

A nice and clean place. However, very commercialized. The wines are of a medium quality. There is no comparison to South Africa's wineries.

I always try support kiwi's (New Zealander's) restaurant/wineries and St Clair is a gem. Service and size of meals for lunch is of a high standard and has impressed visitors and friends alike.

Description
Come and visit Saint Clair Family Estate Vineyard Kitchen to relax, sit back and enjoy the Saint Clair experience.

The newly renovated establishment is situated within a unique vineyard setting with views extending past the vines towards the ever changing and dramatic Richmond Range.

The sunny courtyard offers outdoor dining with some dining options amongst the vines. On a cooler day an extended veranda section can ensure customers continue to have the vineyard feel while being sheltered from the elements through extensive floor to ceiling glass sliding doors. A cosy fire provides ambience and warmth during the New Zealand winter, an ideal settling to relax and enjoy Saint Clair's award winning wines.
