We've been meaning to try Coles for ages and finally got around to it last Saturday. The menu looked lovely and our waitress was very attentive, but then things went rapidly down hill. The starters arrived within 5mins of ordering them and didn't quite live up to the billing. Realising that we were going to be in for rushed evening... More

I had not visited Coles for many years, as the last time my wife and I went it was full, and the noise level made conversation impossible; the tables being so close together. Some on-line reviews were also dire. We were persuaded to try again, however, by some friends, and we booked for a Tuesday evening recently. It was a... More

Visited with family on each occasion, always a friendly welcome either from the owner or the Australian manager. Good friendly banter. My sister has been visiting for some years and always found a similar welcome. Great choice of drinks. Comfortable contemporary furnishings. Smart casual is good enough but many people dress for the occasion. Food was fantastic; beetroot salmon gravadlax... More

Really top place to eat in Marlborough. Prices are fair for the high quality of food and the atmosphere inside is great. Not surprised they get very booked up on weekends.

Had eaten here before and loved it, but on this occasion there was a function on elsewhere and as such there appeared to be a lot of coming and going with the clientele. Very good but not great - maybe just an off night or a bad menu selection on my part. Worth trying.

Visited Coles for Saturday evening with my wife and 2 friends. The welcome in the bar waas very good and the team were very helpful with advising what I could have with my gluten free requirements. After ordering we were escorted to our table on the upper floor when our food was nearly ready. I have not been upstairs before... More

I visited Coles for a friend's 40th birthday. The food and service were stunning! I can't wait to come back with my partner.

Have been visiting Coles since it opened in the late 90s and the service, quality of food, ambience remain excellent. Ideal for a special occasion or impromptu visit, front of house Dan and Sally ensure a warm welcome and Mark Coles ensures that the food and wine offerings are fantastic. A sheer delight of which Marlborough should be rightly proud
