    Thanks Cloudy Bay
    Wow. This experience scored 100%. The atmosphere is stunning, the music is calming, the food is delightful, the wine is excuisite, and to top it off the service is exceptional. Donna was wonderful and made our visit even better by going above and beyond to make us feel welcome. We will definitely return.

    Amazing
    We started with a wine tasting, all the wines we tried were lovely. Food was absolutely amazing. We tried every dish and they were all perfect and beautifully presented. Can't wait to visit again. They were busy (and rightly so!) so would recommend to book.
    Thanks so much for taking the time to write us this very kind review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your time with us.

    Birthday Celebration
    What a day! Started with wine tasting and moving for lunch, so delightful. Everything was scrumptious and top notch. We also got a chance to talk to the Chef Momo and he was such a passionate gentleman. If you are in Cromwell, its a must try. Its a busy place, so ensure you go with booking. We were there for a birthday celebration and no stones were left unturned to make her feel on cloud nine! Thank you Cloudy Bay. We would definitely be back!
    Thanks so much for your lovely review! We look forward to seeing you again.

    A great experience
    What a beautiful place. We had such a great time. The Resturant and it’s surroundings were stunning. The food was fantastic and Ashleigh looked after us all the way. She made us feel so welcome and explained everything about the food and what we would need. We were lucky to meet the lovely chef , Momo, who did amazing food, beautifully presented. The wine was amazing and we loved it so much we purchased a couple of bottles. Well worth a visit, I would highly recommend it.

    A must if you like delectable food
    We had lunch today, a party of 6. The food was superb, every mouthful was savoured. And the meal was accompanied by one of the best Pinot Noirs we have tasted over the last 4 weeks. A special shoutout to Ashleigh who served up this feast, and the brilliant Momo, the Nepalese wonder chef.

    Great experience
    We visited The Cloudy Bay Shed without a reservation as my husbands favourite wine is Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir. We were not disappointed. We received a really warm and friendly welcome and got the opportunity to learn more about the wine production in central Otago. We can't wait to visit the cellar door in Marlborough later this month

Went for lunch with some friends, looked forward to having a special lunch in the amazing setting. There were 4 of us and we ordered every dish on the menu to share , food was tasty however the portions were very small and expensive for what you got. Very disappointing after having some lovely lunches there in the past.

Hi there, thank you so much for taking the time to write us a review. We're delighted you found the food tasty and so sorry you found the dishes sizes too small for your liking. We have a 'sharing style menu' as you know which is designed to showcase the best of our local and high quality products inspired by our wines. I've taken your feedback and passed on to the chef for future reference. The menu's are changed seasonally and we hope to see you again. Next time you book with us, please mention this review as we would love to hear your feedback on the new menu too. We really appreciate you being a regular visitor.

Very poor welcome and experience.

Waitress was condescending and treated one of our guests as disabled because he was deaf and elderly

She cloned to be an ex health care professional so should know how to treat the elderly with dignity and respect

Food on the other hand was very good but this didn’t make up for such a poor experience did a birthday celebration

Other staff involved was sour beyond belief and refused to acknowledge our thanks or queries

Thanks so much for taking the time to give us your feedback, Jan. This really helps us to improve our service. After speaking with another member of your party, we managed to get a full run down of the experience and have already put training in place for the staff mentioned. Thanks again.

Sunday lunch for my mother in-laws birthday, after being seated the menu was explained , father-in-law who has hearing problem asked for it to be explained again at that point the server took this as he was disable and treated him in a patronising way.

After being spoken to the server took offence and the service simply disappeared.
While paying I was challenged by the server and was told she has never been so offended.
I’m sorry but this issue was handled very poorly being locals entertaining family from the UK we have all left with a sour taste.

The serving staff need a lesson in hospitality it’s not with I would expect from a NZ winery

Thanks so much for taking the time to give us your feedback, Rodger. This really helps us to improve our service. After speaking with another member of your party, we managed to get a full run down of the experience. Our staff never intended to be patronising, purely trying to ensure all the guests managed to hear about our menu. We're so pleased this was brought to our attention so we can action it and make some changes to ensure this doesn't happen again. Thanks again.
