Just totally love this restaurant. The food is just devine and the service is always great. I have been here a good 6-7 times when I visit out in Martinborough and can't seem to want to go elsewhere because I know the food is really good here.

This was a favourite spot for us but we were disappointed on our last visit. After being closed for all of August we had great expectations especially as a new kitchen had been build. Despite being the only guests our meals took a long time to arrive and it wasn't worth the wait. The meals lacked flavour. I had vegetable... More

Thanks a lot for the feedback. Naturally we are extremely disappointed to experience a drop from a 5 in your previous visit, to a 3 this time. Clearly we have failed to live up to the high standards we set ourselves. We work hard to address any customer feedback, so do feel free to call us directly if you'd like... More

Husband and I dined at Bloom mid week in June, neither were super hungry so we shared a platter for two and a couple of ciders. We weren't super impressed with the wine upon tasting but thought we would give it a try. Restaurant was cold, so we sat in the sun although this meant we were fairly close to... More

After a morning of wine tasting in the Martinborough region, lunch beckoned when we visited the Murdoch James Estate. The restaurant was quite full (after all it was Mothers' Day) but we were soon seated and enjoying the lamb and pork belly.

This was our second favourite meal in New Zealand. The food was fresh and cooked beautifully. The staff were a lot of fun and added to the overall atmosphere. Great views too.

Love the scenery and atmosphere in the restaurant, there is a comfortable couch around fireplace while sipping wine away... We arrived a little late for lunch but they were still more than happy to serve us lunch menu. They had a good selection of entree and other mains. We had lamb and beef which they have just recently won the... More

We have visited Bloom with different friends twice in the past month and have had a positive experience on both occasions. During these visits, we have collectively sampled main courses which were the confit of chicken leg, the fish of the day (warehou and monkfish), sirloin steak and the pork belly. All were accompanied by ample portions of vegetables, the... More
