What a nice time we had here. We tried for a walk-in on Monday, but they were booked up. So we made a rezzie for Tuesday, no problem. Tamara greeted us as we walked through the door, and we were promptly seated. Tamara walked us through the specials and discussed wines with us. We got to taste the available wine... More

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Wasn't full, made us wait to decide if they could handle the 4 extra guests. Cocktails were weak, and small. My martini glass was only half full, and it wasn't an overly large glass. Entrees had some good flavors, but the ribeye main was really tough. Awkward and clunky service. Way over priced for what you get.

We were visiting New Zealand from San Francisco, CA. We have pretty high expectations on food and wine and MIA exceeded all our expectations. The service was impeccable and Jetti checked in on us several times to make sure we enjoyed our experience. My only regret is not going back our second night! I highly recommend checking out MIA during... More

This 35 cover restaurant is difficult to beat anywhere that I have been to. Superb food, fantastic service, great New Zealand wines - what more can one ask for.

The restaurant was busy, nevertheless the service was attentive without being intrusive. The food was simple and absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked and presented and the sommelier took time to bring us several wines to taste and choose the ones we liked which we were able to have by the glass with each course. It is unusual to be able to... More

In an area where there is a lot of restaurants, exist is difficult. Mia is maybe not in a "sexy" location...but the chef is imaginative and the meal really tasty, what do you want more in a restaurant. The choice of wines is large and the help to choose the perfect beverage is really efficient and friendly. Really a good... More

We had a very good experience at MIA. The food was delicious. The service was excellent and the overall ambience was pleasing. The portions were big - we had plenty splitting all three courses (except, of course, the wine).

We visited Mia just a week after the Kaikoura earthquake. Blenheim suffered isolated instances of severe damage. Thankfully, Mia was open. In chatting with Jetti, owner and tasting conductor extraordinaire, we learned the damage to Mia was financial. Hundreds of bookings cancelled, in part because the Kiwi Rail Coastal Pacific service was closed. We had a spectacular evening. It began... More
