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

Stopped for a coffee and a muffin, was not disappointed! Great coffee! More of a restaurant than cafe so no cabinet food but they did have some tasty savory muffins. Also an awesome plane for kids to go in and have a look around.

A quality dining experience with good food and generous servings. Family friendly with a range of seating options available. Added bonus is the 'museum' display of the Argosy aircraft on site, which can be viewed for a gold coin donation and is a well preserved example of transport in a by-gone era. Great for either a quick lunch or snack... More

Went for dinner and decided we would order desert after the main meal. Huge fresh meals with great flavour and excellent friendly Kiwi service. No room for desert but we were so impressed we went back for what turned out to be an awesome breakfast. The servings are HUGE, the value is GREAT, and the staff and wonderful genuine people....

While this is definitely not a fine dining restaurant the food is good and there is heaps of it. The menu is really extensive and if you couldn't find something you liked then you would be very hard to please. The meals are good value and good beverage list. Great meals for a hungry kiwi bloke. The plane is very... More

The service was slow although they do a good goat curry when available. Not bad value for money though

Party of Three for dinner. The restaurant was quite cold. We were seated by a window which made it even worse. The service was pleasant. The food was what we could of had at home. a good homestyle meal, lacked any real presentation and flair. Helpings were reasonable. My main problem was no provisions made for the gluten free diner.... More
