Raupo – Blenheim, New Zealand

After a flîght from Auckland, we were treated to a lovely evening at Raupo, located in the main town area of Blenheim.  Overlooking the fountain sprouting from the Taylor River, Raupo is a comfortable restaurant, with the welcoming open fire in the corner, and friendly helpful staff.

Here we enjoyed the comfort on this chill winters evening complimented with lovely meals.


This scallops ravioli dish was divine albeit presented very differently to what I expected.

Chilli & Lime Prawn Salad with just the right amount of chilli ensuring it was not to hot.

Crispy rolled pork belly partnered with a crunchy coleslaw
The salmon fillet was also a hit at our table, how could it not be when paired with these wonderful mix of winter veges

Affagatto Dessert only because dinner should finish an essential dessert!

Thank you to Raupo staff for an awesome dining experience, complimented with fantastic service, food and fabulous company.  Definitely check this one out when it Blenheim,  not one to walk past!
