We had an excellent mean with equally good wine. Really no drawbacks. Service good. I'd go back again.

We headed here to have lunch with some relatives whilst on honeymoon and had some lovely food and wine in the sun. The gardens were lovely to sit in and the food was fantastic, everyone thoroughly enjoyed it!

We chose a very busy day to have a vineyard lunch, but the good people at St Clair were very friendly and accommodating, and made us feel welcome. While the wines on offer weren't to our tastes (though they are fines wines, just not to our palate) we had a lovely meal here. While the menu did not particularly suit... More

A nice and clean place. However, very commercialized. The wines are of a medium quality. There is no comparison to South Africa's wineries.

I always try support kiwi's (New Zealander's) restaurant/wineries and St Clair is a gem. Service and size of meals for lunch is of a high standard and has impressed visitors and friends alike.

Had lunch at the Vineyard Kitchen again at the weekend. Platters are stunning and the mango and passionfruit Roulade dessert to die for. Wonderful helpful and friendly staff and presentation of the dishes is first rate. Will return

During an earlier wine tasting at Saint Clair we noticed that their lovely restaurant has several tables placed in amongst the vines, just off their indoor seated area. As it was a beautiful day we chose to have lunch here and it turned out to be one of the nicest meals of the whole weekend. Friendly staff, delicious wine, good... More

My wife and I have been in Blenheim many times and haven't managed to make it to this beautiful vineyard restaurant until now. The service was excellent and the platter we had was generous in size and had many different choices to suit both of us. We enjoyed a lovely bottle of St Clair Pinot Noir to top it off.... More

Upon admittance we were greeted by friendly staff members who sat us in the secluded vines. Setting is fantastic, although the grapes on the vines are very sour which Polly did not enjoy (would not recommend eating the grapes.) The wine tasting was very thorough which is always a bonus, and the lady who served us was an exquisite mixture... More

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.
