We had been recommended to go to this restaurant (by a New Zealander) food good but decor dated! Yes the food was quite good (by NZ standards) and the service was fine but basic. However the decor was more than dated ! Huge murals on the walls supposedly of Venice faded and peeling, an empty fish tank by our table ,with dirty looking rocks in the bottom and cardboard boxes in the fireplace which had once been a pizza oven! Also Health and Safety would have had a field day with the number of old chianti bottles hanging from the ceiling ! However they tried hard but do need to come up to date just slightly!

My husband and I and family have been coming to this restaurant over the past 11 years and it is just as good if not better now than it was when we first ate there! The service is fantastic - attentive and friendly staff, the food is superb, quite possibly one of the best restaurants we have eaten at and the ambience is fantastic too! The meal portions are generous and the prices reasonable. You are treated as though you are family every time and they really look after you.

Would I recommend this restaurant to a friend? YOU BET!
Don`t go to Blenheim without eating at Rocco`s!!!
