Dining at The Portage

Great food and wine is an essential part of our guests' Marlborough Sounds experience. Marlborough is one of the world’s best wine regions and our wine list takes full advantage of this, featuring a selection of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Our food is designed to meet a variety of palettes and dietary requirements.

We have three dining areas - The Portage Restaurant & Bar; the casual Cafe & Lounge Bar; and the Snapper Bar & Eatery.
