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.

I never used to go to the argosy because of its over priced outdated food. Now it is AMAZING. The burgers are huge and as a garlic bread lover was super impressed. I recommend everyone go.

Since the new owner took over my family and I have made this our 'go to' destination for lunch and dinner, great food, nice atmosphere, kid friendly and a unique setting. The food portions are outstanding and with quality to match. BEST burgers in town, easily. Friendly staff and only a 5min drive from Blenheim. What more could you ask... More

We have been going to Argosy for a couple of years and always had good food so we thought we would try it out with the new owners but we had fish and chips which were so over cooked and dry that we are put off going back again. very sad as it is a lovely place.

Wife and I decided to try the Argosy as we had noticed it was under new management with a new approach and menu similarly, specialising it seems in a range of gourmet burgers. Other items on the menu of course. Friendly reception, cool water to the table with wine glasses, nice touch. Ordered our food, she just a savoury muffin... More

Incredible opportunity to learn some local history and dine at the same time. I've been visiting the argosy since I was about 4 years old and it has always been one of my favourite places. The plane itself is a great attraction for families and the recent change of management has given the restaurant a much more professional vibe with... More

This was a fantastic Restaurant, based around excellent food, lovely staff, very sunny, the sort of place you could go to as an organised event or just to drop in too on a whim. very difficult to fault and really sad to see it's demise because someone else wanted to cash in on it's location and traffic as well as...

Just down from the Woodburn Air Base and Blenheim Airport on the main highway on way towards Renwick. Went for lunch and were able to sit outside on some nice new wooden tables. There is a lovely big grass area so if you have kids it's great for them to run around and play and safe. The old aircraft is... More

With an Argosy Aircraft parked out the front of the restaurant we were keen to explore further. The staff were so incredibly friendly and helpful. For a gold coin donation our 11 year old son got to explore and play in the Argosy out the front. The waitress even went to fetch him when his dinner had been served and... More

There have been a number of occasions that I have dined in this restaurant and I feel value for money they would be hard to beat. The meals are not only delicious but generous. Great staff and great service
