  1. River Vineyard and Restaurant


    Don't expect this restaurant to actually be open & you might be OK. Despite clearly stated opening hours on their own website (as well as here) we turn up only to find they've decided to shut Mon - Thu and only open Fri, Sat, Sun for all of August; only place it says this is on their gate! Even the road sign on the main highway still says open. Highly unsatisfied and more than a bit irate!

    My new wife Debbie and I were in New Zealand for four weeks over December and January on Honeymoon and getting away from the cold in Europe. We were traveling around NZ and had a stop over in Turangi on our way down to the South Island. To be honest we were not expecting much when it came to restaurant options but how wrong we were! Our B&B hosts suggested River Restaurant as a number of the guests had dined there before with positive feedback. We consider ourselves 'foodies' and like to dine out as much as possible. At this point of our stay we have to admit we were disappointed in the food and restaurants we had tried so far in NZ, this all changed at River Restaurant. Our meals were well cooked, tasty, imaginative, seasoned just great and Debbie was very happy with her 'veggie' option. For dessert we had poached pears.....these were to die for! With our meal we had 2006 River Wine Pinot Gri, golden in colour which we found a little strange at first however the taste was great and even nicer as we sat looking at the vines the grapes had come from. The food was so good we had brunch the next day and also called in as well at the end of our holiday as we headed back to Auckland. Our only negative comment would be that the staff serving seemed to be having a tough time dealing with the numbers of guests however we still had lots of smiles and nothing seemed to much trouble. Portion size could have been a little bigger
