About the Bistro

Black Barn Bistro is the perfect place to spend an hour or two at absorbing the atmosphere of Wine Country. It is in the heart of the vineyard surrounded by vines and a table on the large generous veranda lets you look right out across the region. In warmer weather a courtyard covered by a canopy of grapes is also a perfect place to enjoy lunch and a glass of wine. The lunch menu is light, fresh and delicious. There is an emphasis on freshly grown Hawke's Bay produce, the selection changes with the seasons.
While the Bistro presents a beautifully casual atmosphere for lunch, every Friday evening it is transformed for an intimate dinner experience. Twilight and evening landscapes out across the region provide a stunning backdrop for any occasion. During summer months the fairy lit courtyard is also the perfect location for dinner. The evening menu is a often a twist on classic dishes and changes every few weeks.
The bistro is available for private functions, evening and during the day, it is also the perfect venue for a very limited number of weddings. Have look through our functions and weddings area for more information. For bookings or enquiries please contact us.
