I recently had occasion to have lunch at Raupo in Blenheim. I have had lunch and dinner at Raupo in the past and found its menu to be pretty good. This visit however was different.

We had dinner here and according to the locals, the owner has sold out and moved on. Food quality was medium-good and for the price, there are better pickings.

The waiters were busy, friendly, but not very knowledgeable about the food or wine. Wish I'd brought a wine app to look up wine reviews before I ordered. Patio... More

Nice place, really good food. Price what i'd expect though there was a 15% surcharge as it was a bank holiday. We would happily go again

Visited for lunch, we had booked a table and were early, but they were ready for us! So seated straight away, prompt service taking our order and plenty of staff on which was great for keeping up with service. Our food was yummy, and the other food coming out around us looked and smelt great too!
