Andy,
Try the Standard Package Graphics`ContourPlot3D, look it up in the Help
Browser.


<< Graphics`ContourPlot3D`


ContourPlot3D[(x^2/16) + (y^2/4) - z^2 - 1,
  {x, -10, 10}, {y, -7, 7}, {z, -10, 10},
  AxesLabel -> {"x", "y", "z"}, Ticks -> True, Axes -> True];


Show[%, ViewPoint -> {0, -3, 0]
