A good kiwi cafe, with great food. After our meal, my partner and I both put this cafe on our list of go-to eateries for our stay -- very good food, no drawbacks.

We visited on a busy Saturday afternoon for lunch and the food and service was great. They happily accommodated for a couple of special requests we had and had plenty of local wine on offer. Coffee was good too and although we didn't use it has a decent looking outdoor area

This is a busy place where many people head for Sunday brunch. We enjoyed fresh food and great service. The coffee was good.

Everytime I come to Martinborough, i drop by Medici for breakfast or lunch or even dinner. Lunch and breakfast are less busy but dinner times are very busy. So make reservations or come at 6 to get a table. Everything on their menu that i have tried, are so far delicious. But my favorite for bunch is the spanish eggs.... More

Medici has been our choice for brunch in Martinborough Greytown for years. Good food and good service. We occasionally try elsewhere but inevitably come back. I usually have eggs bene but this time had the Spanish Omelet which might now be my pick.

My group of four got there 10 minutes before the opening time for dinner but one of the employees saw us and let us in early. She was super friendly and quick getting our drinks and food order. The owner was also great and attentive even though it was a busy Saturday night. Tip: order the rib-eye steak, you'll love... More

Visited on the weekend with friends. Café extremely busy but we were able to order at the counter and sit outside, plenty of room. Delicious cheese scones and great coffee in outside courtyard. Prompt and pleasant service.

Lovely Sunday lunch. Very busy but was great friendly service and food/beverages arrived promptly. May pay to book on a Sunday afternoon as we got the last table and people seemed to sit and chat after eating. My husband commented his slow cooked lamb was the best ever!

Dined at Medici on a recommendation. We were warmly greeted and the service was good. I ordered the green curry which although having plenty of flavour, the menu stated that it had mussels, prawns and fish in it but unfortunately I did not get any mussels and only 1 prawn. There was an okay amount of fish but not enough... More
