Stopped in this restaurant purely by chance and glad we did. I had the mocha and croissant @ $13nzd. Croissant was nice and fluffy and very tasty. Coffee was double strength which is how they serve it normally unless advised otherwise. Staff were very professional and acommodating even going as far as to look for a dairy free meal for... More

We were in Blenheim for a school sports trip and had lunch and then coffee there over the next 2 days. The food is delicious, 4 different choices at our table and all fabulous. Great coffee and a lovely setting on a sunny day. Thanks

Tucked behind the main shopping centre you could easily miss this eatery. It caters for the discerning diner. Nice atmosphere, and the food was lovely. On a personal note I found the waiter a little too attentive, but that would have to be the only down side. Certainly recommend this for that special meal.

Our family party of 4, including one 7 year old, had a casual supper at Raupo. The riverside setting was pleasing, and the front of house reception was efficient.

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?
