If the world-class views of the Queen Charlotte Sound don’t completely mesmerise you, the cuisine in the Foredeck certainly will.

This is 5-star dining at its very best in a pure, natural environment that simply cannot be matched.

Watch the sun set across the bay, or the moon as it sails above the distant hills. On cooler nights, nestle in by the open fire with a glass of Marlborough’s finest and a dining experience you will never forget.

As we wish to ensure that dining in the Foredeck will be a sophisticated and
romantic dining experience for you, we ask that young children not be in the
restaurant after 7pm.
