  • The sommelier is knowledgable and personable! The cottages on the vineyard are a fantastic idea, wish I knew about them before I vacationed. 
  • Had to visit after seeing it with a birds eye view from Te Mata peak and it was well worth it for the stunning view looking up to Te Mata peak. Can recommend the Craggy Range Syrah 2014 - Gimblett Gra...  read more »
  • The food was as you'd expect though not outstanding. What was outstanding was the atmosphere of the restaurant, with its grand fireplace. We took coffee there on rugs after the meal. And the service! ...  read more »
  • Craggy Range is one of the most delectable winery restaurants in the world. Big claim I know however taking into its location, menu, service and wine list one should not visit Hawkes Bay region without visiting. Gourmet food and delicious wine and wonderful decor with views of the range that is unsurpassed. A true diners delight on all fronts. Sets the standards that others try to match. A leader in fine dining at prices that wont hurt the wallet. Not to be missed.
  • Absolutely beautiful setting. On a fine day the range looks fantastic. Tasting are a bit steep, but free if you buy. The staff really know their stuff, and have a good history of the wines and flavours you're getting.
  • Loved this place, the food and the wine were both outstanding and the location is just perfect!
  • Food was excellent but tiny portions. Wine was very good and waiters knew about wine. However, the service was good but unprofessional. For example, all waiters were very nice and friendly but orders were forgotten, not delivered or delivered late. We were overcharged for items we never got (like extra chips), owner didn't want us to pay using two credit cards (we had 15 people table) in any way (which is OK in NZ in general), they didn't even charge us for the right table. Common - simple organisation guys!
  • Outstanding food. Great service. Good wines. Desserts need urgent and total overhaul.
