Beautiful food and wine. We took the trust the chef menu and were wowed by the balanced flavours and stunning presentation. Really loved the lowburn reisling. One of the best winery's in the whole of NZ

The Chef's Surprise lunch is truly First Class. Take a cab - four glasses of wine if you opt for the alcohol. Service matched the quality food preparation and presentation.

Very hard to go past this! 5 star quality. 6 of us went and had the"Trust the chef" option. Everyone left having had a fantastic range of 6 dishes and matching wines-excellent quantity and quality of wine. You need to be prepared and book in advance around busy times.

As a returnee we chose this time to trust ourselves and order from the a la carte menu. 2 entrees and 2 mains to share was more than enough for my husband and I. The duck was cooked to perfection as was the snapper main. The beetroot with the buffalo milk could not be faulted. We are lovers of Amisfield... More

Our group of 12 came here for a Trust the Chef lunch with wine match. The food, service and wine was outstanding. The staff ran around looking after us in the hot sun, even providing us with sun hats. They were very knowledgeable about both the food and wine that we were being served. Loved our experience here and will... More

I have been here four times in the last few years and every time have had "trust the chef" with the wine paring. The food, wine and service have been outstanding each time. I highly recommend it to both locals and tourists.

My partner and I decided to draw on inspiration from Prince William and Kate Middleton's itinerary when they visited Queenstown and dined at Amisfield Winery. The winery is a short drive out of Queenstown (10 mins) and boasts the most amazing old stone building with beautiful courtyard outdoor dining area. An amazing spot with great photo opportunities! If it's a... More

Yes, I know that there are a number of amazing lunch venues in Queenstown (at vineyards or otherwise) but I'm going to dare to suggest that Amisfield should be rated as one of the best - if not THE best! I have been lucky enough to dine at Amisfield many times over the years - as a couple, with friends,... More

Dinner involves "trust the chef" and you can. 2x amuse bouche were pretty and tasty. 2 x entrees were interesting. The broth on the fish course was delicious. Venison was a good indication of nz cuisine. Dessert had a microwave sponge (which i usually find to be overrated) but this one was excellent. Service was efficient and well informed. Wine... More
