Ate here with friends and can not fault the service from start to finish. The ambience was great and seating was comfortable. Was disappointed with limited choices in general for vegetarian dining and also disappointed with the quality and value of the vegetarian dish I was served. That being said the remaining four neat eaters in the party were very satisfied with their food. Portion sizes good and reasonably priced wine list.

Pub type atmosphere with laminated menus and blackboard specials but don't let that put you off.
Staff were excellent, found us extra places at a pre booked table and very accomodating. The night we went there were two large groups of which we were one so was rather noisy and we had trouble hearing each other at times.
The food was great and no one could fault it. Wine prices about $9 glass and mains about $28. Great variety of food to select from with a kids menu too.
Had the TV going so the boys could watch the rugby but a bit distracting if you were not into it.
Outside seating area next to main Blenheim Christchurch highway but the traffic was not a problem as we had the doors shut and the atmosphere inside the restaurant detracted from this.

Unexpectedly good restaurant on the edge of Blenhiem. The lamb dinner I had was superbly cooked and the chicken and fish my friends had got high praise as well. Super friendly staff were helpful in menu and drinks choice. Will be going back for sure on my next visit to Blenheim.

Visited here for dinner on a recommendation. We ordered and my wine was delivered. It was abit oxidized - took it back to the bar and immediately was given a new much better wine. No issues.

We both had steak. Cooked perfectly - medium rare. Can't fault the food and the service. Only negative was that we were next to a noisy birthday party.

Overall I would suggest this is the best place to eat in blenheim. A breath of fresh air.
