Having dined at 2 other hotel restaurants I wasn't expecting much. Was pleasantly surprised with the high quality of service and food. Although on the more expensive side when go again.

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.
Michael will be glad to read this great review of yours. Thanks again!
We were staying just out of Blenheim and decided to eat at this restaurant. The menu was varied and interesting, which covers most tastes, as was the extensive wine and drink list. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was good and cheerful....More
