Mesita (Spanish; = small table) Tucked away in a secluded corner of Martinborough you'll find Mesita! Offering great wine, food and candlelit ambience. We serve an array of local Martinborough wines, tasting flights and some special international additions for comparison and a point of difference. Our food is fresh and sustainably sourced - drawing inspiration from Latin American flavours. Keep an eye on our website for regular events - one-off menu nights, live music and much more!
