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.

We recently dined at MIA. I really like seafood, but am very fussy with regards to freshness. My white fish meal was just perfect, cooked 100% correctly, moist and succulent. My partner really enjoyed the salmon dish too. We had a lovely dessert and drinks. We were impressed with the presentation of our food, the pleasant service and the atmosphere. The restaurant was really busy that night too, with a large group being entertained. Thankfully most of them left before dinner, they were pretty roudy!

This is most definitely one of Marlborough's best restaurants! The standard of the meal, flavours and presentation are first class! Fantastic range of wines to choose from. Foodie heaven! You could easily walk past this restaurant and not know it was there, but that would be a huge mistake. Get on down to Scott Street in Blenheim you won't be disappointed.

I cannot fault our meal on Saturday night if I tried.The food and service was of the highest standard.The wine selection would be the biggest I have ever seen in any restaurant internationally. Restaurant was fully booked friday and Saturday which speaks volumes for its popularity .
