“Lovely Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The food was delicious! We enjoyed the atmosphere in this busy restaurant and they went to extra effort with the special occasion we were celebrating. The service did feel a bit "rushed" though with overly attentive wait staff. Otherwise great!

“wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

the food was so good I ate too much - but I would definitely go back. I had the beef dish with the cream cheese tart on the side and it was wonderful . The bread type appetizers were extremely tasty

“Best food of our entire trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

I had the field mushroom entree with the Rock Ferry Chardonnay and it was SUPERB! My lamb main was also quite beautiful. Husband enjoyed his main of rabbit and entree was chicken pâté. Wine was great, atmosphere was beautiful, service was lovely- only wish we could eat there again! Highly recommend the field mushroom Rock Ferry Chardonnay combo!

“Nicest spot in downtown Blenheim”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Downtown Blenhiem is not much blessed with beauty spots, but Raupo has managed to position itself with a nice view over the river which adds greatly to the experience.

Food was tasty and relatively simple fare, service was friendly and price pretty reasonable. We went home happy.

“excellent service, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

A very pleasant evening meal for 7. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food arrived without delay despite the restaurant being busy - and it was all delicious. The 'birthday person' was very well looked after and made to feel special.
Price reflected the quality of the food, but not exorbitant
One little niggle only - -the menu for children was very limited, a little more choice would have been good.
