Good Food Guide - - Hawke’s Bay -

The im­pres­sive back­drop of Te Mata peak makes for a won­der­ful sum­mer al fresco lunch at Terrôir, with a glass of Craggy Range chardon­nay in hand. In win­ter, the im­pres­sive din­ing room has a de­cid­edly French coun­try theme – from the stone-flagged floor, chan­de­liers and im­pres­sive ta­pes­try to the sub­dued light­ing and roar­ing open fire. The menu veers French too – think con­fit of Mount Cook salmon, twice-baked gruyere souf­fle or pork loin with cele­riac puree. It’s all per­fectly matched with Craggy Range’s wines by welldrilled, con­fi­dent staff, and, if you are buy­ing by the bot­tle, then the older vin­tages pro­vide plenty of in­ter­est. If wine isn’t your thing, then there’s also a great se­lec­tion of Hawke’s Bay craft beers to be had.
