“Nicest spot in downtown Blenheim”
Reviewed September 12, 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”
Reviewed September 6, 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.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

First things first, that was the best mushroom soup I have ever tasted! I want the recipe please. Two of our table of four ordered it as a starter and everyone agreed it was amazing. The mussels and salmon starters were very impressive too.
The mains were great as well, we had lamb and pork options. The staff here were very friendly and smiley. We would definitely go back for seconds here!!
