My wife and I had the 4 course tasting menu which was excellent. Friendly service and staff. Loved meeting Charlie (the dog).

IMHO, the best place to dine in the top of the south island. We had the feed me option with wine match and absolutely amazing experience. We have been back, if you are in the Marlborough region it is a must visit restaurant.

I had the tomato salad ($23) and it was excellent. The baked tomatoes were the best I’d ever had.

The four course menu ($89) was also great. Salmon, grouper, beef three ways and dessert.

The wine list is extensive with numerous NZ options.

Great dinner, friendly staff.

for a special night out Arbour is hard to top. I highly recommend the chef's table. It's only available in the colder season, as it gets too hot in there in summer. If you like watching kitchen activity, and watch your plate being prepared, then there is nothing better than sitting at a prep bench watching it all happen. It's kind of like first class treatment.

the rest of the restaurant is pretty good too. Set in the country side, it's got a very nice garden. The dishes are so pretty, you can eat them with your eyes. Chose from a la carte or from a set menu. We had the 9? course meal treat.

Today we visited Arbour restaurant. They have good combinations wine- spice. The entree was excellent, the main was not so much what we like.
Tasty but not culinair, with a lot of white beans and the sauce was also not as tasty as we like it. Good restaurant but not yet on European standards ( guide Michelin stars)
