Black Barn Bistro is the perfect place to spend an hour or two absorbing the atmosphere of Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. It's in the heart of the vineyard surrounded by vines and citrus trees. A table in the large generous dining room 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 menu is light, fresh and delicious. There is an emphasis on freshly grown Hawke's Bay growers and artisans with the menu continually changing with the seasons.


The Bistro presents a beautifully casual atmosphere for lunch Wednesday to Sunday. From Thursday to Saturday evening the bistro is transformed into an intimate dinner experience. Twilight and evening landscapes out across the region provide a stunning backdrop for any occasion. The Bistro is a place where you can pop in for a afterwork drink, sip on icey cold Rose' over a long Summer lunch or enjoy a coffee outside the Kitchen store. We also offer a small bites menu to be enjoyed with a glass of wine under the fig trees in the entrance or out amongst the vines infront of the courtyard.


The bistro is available for private functions and is also the perfect venue for a very limited number of weddings. Have a look through our functions and weddings area on for more information. For bookings please follow the link below.

Last bookings will be taken at 1.30pm. Thank you for your understanding, we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
