We had a night out just for us, no teenage young adult children with us. The meal and service was fantastic from Jetti and his team.
We loved the kiwi style cuisine with a twist from another international cuisine, made each dish exciting and different. Will be back to try more !!!

Fantastic food and wine both nights. I had the Scallops and crispy crust salmon on noddles - delicious clear flavours. Great wine matches too. Friendly attentive service. So good we went back a second night & weren't disappointed. Thank you.

An exceptional meal cooked by the most enthusiastic and passionate chef. He came and talked to all the patrons after our meals so we got to hear about his craft from this amazing artist.

He loves his food and this is reflected in his sophisticated cooking. We had venison and lamb at our table for mains. All local and magnificent.

The highlight was the use of black garlic. He even made a cream brûlée out of black garlic.

Loved it all. Thanks Chef. I'll be back.

We went to vineyards in Marlborough and spent one night in Blenheim. Lovely woman at our hotel reception desk said her daughter went here and loved it- New Zealand cuisine- so we went. Walking distance . We Loved it. Food and service was great. The two young owners were working hard and were so nice. Loved the whole experience.
