We enjoyed our meal at this recently rebranded restaurant. Excellent menu selection at very reasonable prices, accompanied by a fine wine list which offers tastes for all ( as well as those on a budget). The staff are friendly and attentive.

A fantastic find in Blenheim - recommended by our airbnb host. A roomy space, tastefully furnished, where we had helpful advice about food and wine choices and scrumptious food. A sheer delight that we didn't expect to find in rural NZ! We would definitely return.

Trust Michael' s judgement- the wild venison was superb as was the beef. Accompaniments really complimented the meal. Wine excellent.
