Had a delicious three course meal here following a local recommendation. The staff were wonderfully polite and attentive and the food was some of the best we've had in NZ. A lovely place to relax in the evening after a hard days wine tasting.

What a beautiful restaurant with a pleasant veiw. My family and I had nice enough meals in the outside eating area. My husband said his Ribeye was the best he has had in a long time. The head waitress was fantastic she was friendly, helpful, efficient and it was nice to see someone smiling . I could see how stressed... More

Raupo's was a great breakfast venue for us as travelers. We initially sat outside but was a little windy so shifted inside. Great looking out over the river whilst enjoying the decor inside. Great food, service and coffee. Would definitely call in again when going through Blenheim

Lovely setting and decor. My scallops and steamed vege were delicious & generously portioned. My husband's beef was disappointing with a very large proportion of fat & grisle. He asked the waitress to draw the chef's attention to it but we received no feedback or apology. Disappointing for a $35 steak.

Quick service and a delicious and generous rump steak in the sandwich: good choice of wines too, also recommend the spiced beef salad on Asian coleslaw

We went last night for a family celebration. The service was professional, friendly and knowledgable. We loved the menu, if there was one criticism it would be perhaps one more vegetarian dish. The food was so delicious - certainly value for money. The scallops were to die for. The Restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere and we will be back soon.... More

Very disappointing late lunch for 5. Salmon on toast, couldn't find salmon. Plater very poor, needs attention to presentation and more of. Limited menu, we can have fries anywhere. Service good. Why change a great Marlborough restaurant. Have always had amazing meals in the past, won't be going back.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for your less than satisfactory late lunch at Raupo Cafe. Our "Salmon toast" is a Parmesan and Salmon butter on a baguette, hence the reason the salmon was not visible. Thank you for your feedback on the afternoon platter, we have passed on your comments to the chef to address the matter with our kitchen... More
