Liked the atmosphere in this cafe with the two levels and heater to cosy up to. It is a great place to meet business clients and the drinks are good. Nice coffee and the staff are pleasant.

Great setting, brilliant service and food. Nice balance of efficient service - but personalised. Only issue is I will have to go back to enjoy other things on the menus - which I had to look at - dinner looks amazing and good prices. Certainly worth a visit any time of the day I would suggest.

Cant get any better than sitting by the river in the sunshine... but it does when the food comes out! Try the onion and pumpkin tart and the pate. Faultless. Service was friendly and fast. The new owners have got it sorted! Love the interior changes.

With lovely decor, a fireplace and a pleasant view over the river, this restaurant is a great choice for any meal. We dropped in twice during our four night stay in Blenheim. Excellent service and lovely food. What more could you ask for?

I came in for a light lunch but couldn't go past the Reuben sandwich. Very generous portion!! The bread was amazing and the sauerkraut was delicious! Service was good as always and although I couldn't finish my lunch was a great experience

The thing I love most about Raupo's is that it is very family friendly, yet still classy. Chldren are always greeted and treated nicely, and the afe advocates breastfeeding. It is nice to go to a place with your children which is relaxing and still classy; not just noisy cafes with simple chairs and furniture. My critique on this cafe... More

Went for coffee. There are new owners but the place looks relatively the same. They have replaced the low bucket type chairs which is good but I think the staff need a smarter uniform or nice printed black tee shirts as their white shirts look a bit grey! Staff are friendly and my Moccha was hot, the way I like... More

What's the unwritten rule? Never order the "Chef's Special" - it is stuff that's nearly expired and the chef has made up a dish to get rid of it before he has to throw it out! I dined at Raupo a few nights ago and ordered a starter of marinated olives and mushrooms which was quite nice, although somewhat startlingly,... More
