Bloom Restaurant is located just south of the beautiful Martinborough Wine Village at Murdoch James Estate vineyard, one of New Zealand's most highly regarded Pinot Noir producers. Just 10 minutes drive from the town square and located in a stunning elevated setting with panoramic views, Bloom offers a range of dining options, or just a coffee and/or a glass of wine to relax with after an afternoon exploring nearby vineyards. Sit on the deck in the summer months and watch the river trickle by at your feet and the grapes growing nearby. Or, in Winter, sit indoors by the crackling fire, and enjoy a slow, relaxing meal. Our cuisine is always sourced locally and only the freshest ingredients are used. For a sample of our menu, check our website, or call for more information.

Very nice. Maybe over-rated

The setting and the view were wonderful. A short drive in the country, and a quaint road up a wee hill and over a stream, you arrive at lovely Bloom's overlooking the Martinborough plains. Beautiful big deck to sit on or inside if it's cool. The food was delicious, but the menu said raspberry and... read more

The weather was stunning two Sundays ago and that set us up for a perfect outdoor seating for a special birthday lunch. Party of 10 and everything was ready for us and we had consistent service from the same suave waiter! He was very professional with the table's inability to initially make decisions on what to eat, drink, etc. Food... More

We took some friends there for lunch recently and were advised at local Information Centre that it was worth a visit to the restaurant. The waiter was more than detached, I would say somewhat indifferent or even a little arrogant. The outside tables encapture the amazing views and well worth the visit to appreciate that. The food, well both at... More

The food was very good. We ate there at night so did not get to enjoy the view which I had heard was very good. They had a good selection of food and wine. Our waiter was a bit detached and didn't seem to want to be there. Overall, a good experience though.

We called here for a coffee at the recommendation of the helpful woman at the nearby information centre. Although we sat at the outdoor area the indoor area looked so inviting we planned to return for lunch when we had the opportunity. The menu and awards looked impressive with the tantalising smell of lunch cooking.The view from the outdoor terrace... More

We had booked for lunch and while the food was both good and well cooked, the service cheerful (possibly a bit over familiar if you are not used to Kiwi service) we chose to eat inside the restaurant rather than on the deck as it was particularly hot and sunny - but had to suffer the intrusive and frankly unpleasant...

We had a fantastic lunch at Bloom Restaurant. The steak and lamb meals were superb. We recommend this restaurant. The wine tasting prior to lunch was also great

This is a beautiful place. Eating on the deck on a lovely summer day, looking out over rolling hills of vines was great. But ... the place has won awards for beef and lamb, and my companions went for meat options., which they said were satisfactory. I chose the veggie route, which was supposed to be stuffed peppers with orzoi.... More

We went to Bloom hoping to find our new local winery restaurant having moved to the region from Blenheim we need a new restaurant to frequent. Unfortunately although the wine tasting was excellent the service was below expectations. We did visit on a rather busy Sunday lunchtime but we had booked a table in advance. The menu was reasonable for... More
