No dining experience in our two weeks came close to matching the ambience, the wine and the food, your explanations of the wines, and the attentive and pleasant service. Thank you so much for having us. We are singing your praises to our friends here in Virginia. Have a great holiday and we are hoping someday to return to New Zealand and to Gantleys “

“ My husband and I were guests at the McDiarmid – Patterson wedding on Saturday, and found Gantleys a fabulous venue. The aspect was delightful and food delicious. What I would like to make particular mention of however, was the impeccable service. Unfortunately it seems service standards in New Zealand can be variable, and as your establishment proves, excellent service distinguishes an excellent restaurant. Thank you for your hospitality “
