The man at the reception area (dark haired and pudgy) was rude, smug and pretentious and seemed uninterested in helping anyone who was not a local (exclaimed there were no tables and we would have to wait 2 hours, but we overheard as a local couple came in and he told them he did not have any tables but would...

14 and a a toddler booked to "Trust the Chef", and just have food turn up. IT was one of the most memorable meals that I have had. From the small goats cheese macaroon at the start to the range of nibbly desserts, every element presented was perfect. Every dish a flavour delight, and amazing flexibility - a couple of... More

Good food, good location, but rather rude to charge an extra $40 just to bring their own wine (already at $60) to the table. Did NOT leave a good taste!

Very impressive in handling outstanding food and high quality wine over a luncheon approach. Handled variations to diet and wine with ease. Glorious venue and charming staff. Deserves every success.

We can not recommend this winery enough! Just a fabulous experience thanks to impeccable service, amazing views and incredible food. We opted to "Trust the Chef" and we're so glad we did. What a gorgeous meal. We left feeling satisfied but wishing we could stay longer. Highly recommended! Do yourself a favour!

A bit of a downside to managing in hospitality is that you expect a very high customer service standard - and this place did not disappoint. From the perfect explanations of each meal on the "Trust the chef" experience, to the complimentary hats offered to us when the umbrellas outside had to be put down due to the wind, this... More

Perfect setting and wonderful 'trust the chef' degustation menu of 4 courses ( with or without their matched wines). 6 of us visited for a very special lunch and were most impressed by the food, ambience and service. $75 per head. $125 with wines, but well worth the expense.

My husband and I had the chef's tasting menu with wine pairing for dinner. Our dinner was one of the best meals we had during our two week trip in New Zealand (and we ate at a lot of great places). The flavors were spot on, the presentation was beautiful and the service was impeccable. Pours for the wine pairings... More

We went for lunch & had a really good time, I must say that Amisfield is my favourite restaurant in Queenstown, never have I walked away feeling disappointed, the food was excellent, the wine was exquisite and the service was very good, all in all in was a great day to celebrate my friends 50th.

Thank Mark A
