The El Gringo pork was delicious with a great range of beers and wines. Staff were super friendly and the live music made the night! We'll be back.

Stopped for lunch while driving State Highway 1 from Blenheim to Christchurch. Melt in your mouth Ciabata Sandwich with good coffee, friendly service and value for money. Will be back.
