We were told this was the place for breakfast. The food was good. The coffee was average (probably just an inexperienced barista). It gets noisy when busy.

Great staff, plenty of cabinet foods and lovely all day menu. My asian style squid with coleslaw was delicious. The coffee excellent and service tops.

Service was a bit slow when we called in even though the place was not busy. Received my drink after I had finished eating and had to prompt waitress for it. Just had a scone and slice, not a meal. Scones were great. I guess I expected something wow as the place seems to have a good reputation and strong... More

We stopped into Cafe Medici for a Sunday lunch and had an excellent meal. Between us we tried the lamb tagine, Moroccan burger and the corn fritters. They were all excellent as was the coffee. Recommended.

My mother and I swung past the ever popular restaurant on a busy Saturday night to see if we could be squeezed in, they were fully booked of course, but with some clever juggling of tables by maitre'd Marvin we got a table! The menu is not huge at Medici but there is a lot of attention to detail and... More

A very busy breakfast destination, which does always bode well. Despite needing to make a beeline for the only spare table the service was great, fast and lovely eggs benedict. Perfectly cooked eggs and well seasoned. Good coffee to match. We had breakfast twice there on our long weekend away to martinborough!

We had a lovely meal with beautiful food, wine and service. Some of the girls were still talking about their meals the next day. We had a very enjoyable evening - thanks Cafe Medici. Very nice ambience.

Arrived here from Palmerston North at 10:00 a.m. to meet with friends from Wellington. Unfortunately they were delayed in the Hutt Valley so we enjoyed beautiful coffees and a seat in the sunshine outdoors in the courtyard. By the time our friends arrived (at almost noon!) we were being chatted to by the friendly staff who served more coffee and... More

We really enjoy dropping into Medici, especially on a cold winter's day. The log fire warms the restaurant, food is great and atmosphere warm and friendly.

After a disappointing start at Pinocchio's we went to Medici to have diner and it was a feast! We had mussels and duck rolls for starters. Very tasty and a good portioned starters. The mains were pork belly and groper. The pork was crispy and melt in the mouth. The creme brulee with sorbet finished on a high for us.... More
