We're an older couple who travel the world. The highly rated reviews don't do this place justice. The owner made us feel so welcome. The 9 wines we tasted added to the evening. The main course...pork with 11 spices was the best I have ever had. If I lived in Blenheim I would be their most regular customer. Impossible to say enough good.

My wife and I travel the world up to 6 months a year. We eat at the finest/highest rates ones. This restaurant in Blenheim was as good as any restaurant. The atmosphere was wonderful, the food (especially the pork with 11 spices) was unforgettable. The best was the owner, Saulo. He personally greeted us, realized we enjoyed interacting with him, then sat down with at our table...along with 5 bottles of wine. We talked about his country, our travels, wines we like, our food preferences. He then helped select the food (and dessert) and the 4 additional wines that evening.
He was busy when we left, but he found us outside and thanked us and gave us a hug.
It is impossible to say enough good about the restaurant. If we weren't on the North Island we would go there again.

All of the 5 star reviews were what intrigued us enough to try this restaurant and we were not disappointed; not only were they accommodating for all of the food allergies of one person in our party, but the warmth and friendliness of the family members who work in the restaurant made us feel like long time friends who were welcomed with open arms. The food was absolutely delicious and was as good as anything I had eaten in Brazil; a great wine list and excellent desserts were icing on the cake. This is truly one of the dining gems in the region and not to be missed.

Saturday night, luckily we had booked, while 4 of us were travelling through this wine area
Very lively atmosphere, great menus one of our party was vegetarian, all tastes and diets caterd for. Somewhat quirky in places and loud at times but never the less a really enjoyable evening. A couple of us took the chilli challenge, which is interesting. So come the end of the evening we had all had fabulous food and wine, been entertained, we needed a cab for our 10 minute ride back. We asked them to book one for us. They came back told is it was a minimum of 40 minutes so the u took us back to our rental house! That really was above and beyond. Give this place a try if you can get a table.
