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.

Great food, quick service, eating among the vines - very decadent - could have stayed all day. The wines were excellent too!

Great food, great wine and great service. Our favourite cellar door experience. We brought friends visiting form the UK and they just loved this too. We'll be back for sure whenever we pop over to Blenheim.

The whole family - two adults and children ages 15, 13 and 8 - came here for lunch. Service was excellent, food was loved all round, and the wine choice showed off the vineyard to its best. The setting of the restaurant - right next to the vines - created a special atmosphere.

When we arrived we waited to be seated. It was busy but at least 6 staff members walked passed avoiding eye contact. Finally I stopped the waitress, with the heaviest load of dirty dishes, to ask about getting a table
Wine tasting...ok Wine waitress not really wanting any small talk, glasses were warm
Food was really enjoyable but the glass of Dawn accompanying it was really quite small for $13.50(ish)
