Toward the inland end of the Rapaura Road winery strip, this bar and elegant dining restaurant enjoys a well-designed Sante Fe–style setting. Stars on the menu include their baked saddle of lamb and an herb-crusted salmon. Their beef fillet is also worth stopping for. The courtyard is shaded by cherry trees through summer and there's a small on-site printmakers gallery. They're open for dinner every day through summer, but ring ahead about dinner in winter, and they're
open for breakfast every day, all year. The restaurant is part of the Marlborough Vintners Hotel, which has contemporary-style self-contained apartment accommodation.
