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

I enjoyed my breakfast while sitting in the sunshine outside on tables on the footpath. It was fun to watch people wandering buy. There was a great selection of freshly baked food and the coffee was great. Newspapers available for reading and clean toilets too. I look forward to returning.

When all the winery restaurants are closed - head to Medici for fabulous coffee, vino and food. I had a ragout with papadelle pasta and a fantastic bottle of Ata Rangi Pinot Noir. Husband had the lamb burger which was equally delicious. Thoroughly recommend to all.

We went on a busy Saturday. Good food at reasonable prices with a fairly wide selection of wines by the bottle or glass. The pork belly was well cooked and tasty and the others in our group all enjoyed their food.

It's not often that you can say that a restaurant is really good got all 3 options, but this one is!! We have been regularly for brunch, lunch or dinner, and have not been disappointed. Brunch/lunch options are always really nice, I love the Spanish eggs!! Roast potatoes, with scrambled eggs and a spicy tomato/chorizo sausage topping, so yummy! There... More

The pumpkin risotto was delicious, wish I had got it as my main. We got the chicken for two. It was nice however I didn't enjoy having half a chicken carcass on my plate to pick at. The fried potatoes were a bit bland and I didn't think the 'fennel salad' was well detailed on the menu. Lovely service, the... More
