My sister and I went for lunch. Really loved the warm berry juice. We had a potato and bacon dish which sounded yum but was very disappointing. Service was lovely and friendly. Atmosphere was nice and warm. Just our choice of food was not the best. Other meals looked delicious.

We went here because of the reviews and a recommendation from our hotel. We found the dinner to be average. The service was pleasant enough. We were also put off because of the couple next to us complaining non-stop about their meal, though, of course, this was not really the restaurants fault. It is unlikely we would go again.

We had 12 of us for dinner on Saturday evening after finishing the St Clair 1/2 - so well needed place to rest. Staff were excellent and food was absolutely delicious. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

This place was recommended to us by our hotel. When we arrived, being Mother's Day, it was fully booked, however, Stephane, the owner quickly opened up another area upstairs for the four of us. He was friendly and had a great sense of humour. The food arrived in a relatively short space of time given how busy it was. Everything... More

Interesting decor, great service and food was excellent. What more could you ask for in an otherwise deserted town on a Sunday night. Had the Angus steak and Fish of the Day.

I usually refuse to eat at places that are rude enough to tack a 15% surcharge onto public holidays, especially when they are weekdays which would otherwise provide very little business for them, but my mother was paying and that is what she decided! It took a long time for our order to be taken and then another long time... More

Had a delicious meal at Raupo Cafe - the terekihi in particular is beautiful, and the dessert menu is mouthwatering. The restaurant has a great selection and knowledge of local wines. Our waitress was young, but incredibly friendly and helpful. Will definitely return the next time we are in the region!

I recently took time out from Easter Shopping and dropped into Raupo Café was very glad I did! Friendly and welcoming staff had me sitting on the sunny deck with an outstanding iced coffee and yummy food. There was a lovely vibe about the place - just what was needed. Thank you Raupo!

Had a lovely brunch with extended family at Raupo today. The cafe was very accommodating of our larger group that walked in off the street and service was prompt and friendly. The coffee is the very nice Allpress coffee and complimented our choice of the custard and chocolate (decadent) croissant. Service was outstanding and the whole experience was lovely. Would... More
