I love popping in to Raupo for a top notch coffee and gourmet muffin. The food, beverages, setting and service at Raupo is extraordinarily good and the outdoor area next to the river is lush in the summer time. The dinner service at Raupo is fantastic, the food is amazing and the value for money is spectacular. My favourite café/restaurant... More

Cannot say I was overly impressed, but then that could be because I turned up in that time in-between lunch and dinner. I was hungry and the snack menu wasn't filling enough. I was looking for that steak sandwich I had read about in an earlier review but had to settle for either a cheese platter or Pate; I chose... More

We went here with my husbands parents recently while they were visiting. We booked to sit next to the fire which was lucky as it was really cold. I actually kept my coat on for most the evening!

We really enjoyed our dinner in February 2016. We still remember catch-of-the-day a accompanied with local DogPoint wine. The waiter suggest us to try their brownie cake (beautifully served) with red wine. Great experience. Than you guys for hospitality and finding a table for us despite the fact that you were fully booked. We really appreciate it.

The steak was cooked perfectly and wasserved with onions and a great dressing. It was very good and the fries it came with were also seasoned well. The chicken dish was... More
