Great service, fabulous food. You need to book well in advance to get into a weekend lunch. Enjoy the tasting room before you indulge in the food.

Beautiful restaurant set in most idealic location great service, food and vino made for stunning afternoon. Highly recommend goats cheese entree, venison main and the Merlot Malbec red. They met special dietary requirements as coeliac really well and loved the house made gluten free bread.

The location of the Winery is in a picturesque part of Canterbury, but unfortunately this is in my opinion the best thing going for it. Food was well presented but terribly over-salted. If this is a ploy to drink overpriced wine, it's not worth the...More

Pegasus Bay is one of those special places that makes you feel wonderful. From the wonderful building and gardens to the warm and caring staff. Not to mention one of the top 5 meals I have ever had. Taste the venison and you will leave...More

We ate in the garden overlooking the flower garden and with a view of the hills, the weather was perfect, the service from our waitress Alia was outstanding, and each course of our meal was delicious. It began with complementary (and heavenly) home-cooked bread, olive...More

This is a real shame because our experience was excellent. Did you question the wait staff about the wine and food? They could have replaced the glass of wine and got the chef to taste your meal and maybe prepare another... More
