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 .

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.

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!
