Very disappointing- the food was well below average but the night was saved by one fantastic dessert (the amazing laminating). But that's really all you could say that was positive. I would not recommend it.

We dined here with our 2 sons (aged 18 & 20) there was not a lot of choose for them but they both settled on the Pork. All our meals were great and the pate was fantastic (you don't see that often on a menu) On our 2nd night we went to another place for dinner but came back for... More

We were looking forward to our dinner at the bistro but were disappointed by the food - which does match what's offered on the menu or the decor. Our mains - the pork and lamb overcooked and dry, the jus overreduced, vegetables overcooked. The Te Kairanga wine choice was good.

The restuarant looked inviting so popped into reserve a table for later that evening. My partner and I both had the duck pate - simply devine and served with pickled carrots and white radish and fresh orange segments. Stunning. My main was the fish of the day - served with fresh vegetables, cooked to perfection. My partner a pork dish,... More

A thoughtful young chef presented interesting and well cooked meals for us, two nights in a row. Service very good also.

It's a Monday night and there are many local restaurants closed. But that can't explain over an hour wait on our main courses. I could sense the hectic state in the kitchen and there were some perfunctory apologies but we had a child with us and it was close to 9pm when the mains finally arrived. It might have been... More

Nice menu, and the food was good. We both especially liked the crayfish bisque. The service was disappointing - on a Saturday night, you'd expect their "A" team, but it felt like poorly supervised newbies were at the helm. Some (but not all) dirty dishes from the starter were left on the table until the end of the meal. Similar... More

First time back here since the change of mgmt and staff. First thing we noticed was the friendly welcome and more inviting decor. Couple of craft beers on tap and pretty good local wine list. Food was very nice too and prices very reasonable. Changes made definitely for the better. Well done

Ate here on our first night in Martinborough and definitely wasn't disappointed. Took a little while to order (was a bit busy), but once we did food came quickly and was absolutely incredible.

this was my second time dining at the restaurant and i was once again very happy with the experience. Twenty locals dined in a beautiful private dining room on a Saturday evening - serving such a large group can be challenging - my food was excellent and i only heard good feedback from fellow diners. Service was friendly and efficient... More
