Delicious

Took the family out to lunch, I had the best burger ever, the beef patties was delicious and suculent and the fish burger had the nicest fish that we had tried in ages. Everyone was impressed.

Popped in to get a take away burger for lunch, as I was passing, and greeted with a big smile. I ordered a Fokker burger, which is a Chicken breast covered in a Thai green curry coat and offered a couple of jalapenos just for good measure, and a Chocolate Frappe. Just got back to the office and devoured that... More

I was wondering where to go for an afternoon coffee and decided to take my mother to the Argosy Cafe. I walked in and ask for to coffees and asked if there where any cakes or muffins all that was offered was chocolate Browne. I refused as it seemed a little rich. I will never go back again. The coffee... More

Great easy going people, nothing to fancy however we enjoyed the great food and service. Nice little cafe, it was a nice hot day so there was a steady amount of people coming in. Overall really enjoyed our visit.

My family and I went to Argosy for dinner and sadly were extremely disappointed with all aspects. The service was non existent- we had to continue to go up and ask for more drinks, the food took an unexceptionally long time between the first persons meal arriving and the last, I had to ask for the missing feta from our...

This is our favourite place to eat out in Blenheim, the owner is so friendly and more than happy to let us swap out ingredients in meals for other options (eg red meat for chicken). Well priced, massive meals, we recommend Argosy to all our visiting friends and family!

We were so impressed with the argosy cafe. Service was wonderful, they couldn't have been more friendly, the food came really quickly, it was beautifully presented and just delicious. They have also supply picnic rugs to use in a lovely fenced picnic area right by the big argosy plane- we'll definitely be going back on a sunny day to do... More

The venue is nice and interesting. Service was ok but a little slow. Meals took quite some time to come out and the food was not the best. I had bones in my fish and the chips were over cooked. My colleague had pork. Said it tasted OK but the mash it was served on was not great. It didn't... More
