About Mt Difficulty Cellar Door and Restaurant
The Winery Restaurant at Mt Difficulty provides a relaxed atmosphere in which to enjoy a delicious lunch. On a fine day the outdoor terrace is the perfect spot to take in the flavours of the region while enjoying the uniquely Central Otago views. The chef produces imaginative cuisine, and the menu showcases the freshest of produce, with a choice of substantial fare or platters to share. All main meal options come with suggested wine matches, though diners are welcome to make their own choices at our wine tasting counter.
Stunning location, beautiful wines, outstanding food, friendly and knowledgeable staff. One of the best vineyards in NZ, our absolute favourite.
Superb service from the moment we walked in until we left, delicious food & wine, would definitely recommend.
I was with great company . Found on arrival front of house woman very regimented not very welcoming . Our waitress was just lovely and helpful with food and wine choices. We ordered the platter and cheese board nothing exceptional or unique to the area but we were there to catch up with friends. Pleasant sitting in the sun and the view is amazing .
Great meal, good wine and surroundings. Great staff!
The food was excellent. A wonderful view and ambiance. A shame I live in Auckland. Will recommend you highly.

A wonderful meal every thing was perfect
Outstanding customer service from the team, from both the tasting and dining room staff, thanks for a truly enjoyable few hours.
Excellent as always
Great service and food with amazing views thrown in. A fantastic experience highly recommended to other lucky enough to spend time in the region.
You require and are stringent on booking time windows yet when we arrived for our booking; done by the internet a week prior, we had to wait 15mins for the previous slotted guests to be moved on.
Food was delicious, service was great. Lovely views.
Such a special place to celebrate with good friends
Very very enjoyable time, great wine and service
Mt Difficulty is in a spectacular setting, high above the vines of Bannockburn with gorgeous views of the historic gold sluicings. We really enjoyed our fresh, imaginative and delicious meal, along with a bottle of Mt Difficulty Pinot Gris, served by a happy and attentive team of staff. Be sure to make an easy online booking because you would not want to miss this magical Central Otago experience. Enjoy!
I brought a small tour group to Mt Difficulty recently for wine tasting and lunch on the terrace. The entire experience was nothing short of fabulous - atmosphere, wines, food and exceptional service. I wouldn't hesitate to visit again, a real highlight for everyone!
Wonderful atmosphere to have a relaxing and special lunch. Food was superb - service and presentation was excellent. Many thanks - most appreciated. Erin
