Amazing food today. Everyone who had lamb commented on how succulent it was and my fish dish with vegetables was delicious. The desserts had everyone talking. So original in presentation with lovely flavours and textures in the selection of taste treats. Kai pai team.

We had our end of year work function last night at Glenfalloch. Buffets can often compromise on quality but the food was absolutely beautiful (oh and the dessert buffet is to die for) and plenty of food. Beautiful venue and great service too, they were very accommodating. Really stoked with how the whole night went.

This was a very charming evening in every way.The food as usual was outstanding, it is an art to bring out those flavours which so compliment each other. We had the 3 course, perhaps we should have chosen 5! Also appreciated that altho it was chefs choice, you were able to cater for food intolerances. Excellent wine choices offered. The table service was great, aided by other waiters from time to time. I guess the fact that 3 of 4 of us made further bookings for the new year says it all. Glenfalloch is in excellent hands. Thankyou

Wow, amazing. I Live in Jersey ( small island near UK) so relied on trip advisor for a recommendation for a special birthday celebration whilst touring NZ. We were not disappointed, in fact we felt the quality of the chefs choice meal compared favorably to any Michelin star restaurant at a fraction of the price. The service was superb and a walk around the beautiful gardens was a bonus. Well done to the chef, front of house and waiting staff, a great team effort.

Beautiful setting with the gardens and the sound of bellbirds as we arrived. The staff were lovely and the courses were perfectly timed (not too rushed). The food was fresh, tasty and interesting. Just the right amount (we had the 5 course). Beautifully tender beef.
