Ambiance was lovely, we had the entrees as appetisers which were all lovely – both ordered the eye fillet, we had to send them both back as they were overdone. For a restaurant that prides itself on quality I can’t believe they could overcook steak… the replacements were very lovely but rather put a dampener on our meal. Would return but would not order steak.

Dined here last night and well worth the visit. The food, service and ambiance makes it a cut above others. So glad that we chose here for dinner its was the highlight of our stay in Blenheim. Hope we find something as good in Nelson.

they used to have consistency issues with food and service but the last few times we’ve been over the last year show that both these have improved vastly. Excellent options,well cooked and presented with pretty good service added makes for a pleasant evening.

An improvement would be table clothes; wooden table with water makes and a bit of peeling varnish not a good look for this type of establishment.

Oh, and turbitt can’t be a ‘locally line caught fish’ can it???

but small points in the scheme and will return

We could not fault this restaurant in ANY respect. We would give it 6 starts if possible. The service was genuine, continuous and attentive. The food far exceeded our expectations. The atmosphere was perfect. The variety of wines offered ensure the perfect match for your dish.
Beware – the quality of a dining experience at this restaurant is reflected in the price of the meals. Whilst perfect for a special occasion, you’ll be needing to sign up for a second mortgage if you wish to dine here often.

Ate here a while ago. Ordered the pork and it was beautiful. The staff came across a bit pretensious though. Will be back!

My husband and I went to Hotel D’Urville for my birthday while spending the weekend in Marlborough.

If we’re even in Marlborough again we will definitely be returning. The service was friendly yet unobtrusive, the timing of the courses perfect and the food itself absolutely exquisite. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long long time.

Our only one real gripe came at the beginning. Despite booking reasonably far in advance we were seated at the “dud” table. In this case it resides right in the restaurant entrance facing directly into the hotel’s brightly lit reception area a few meters away and the door between the two was kept open. So not only were we in the middle of all the incoming and outgoing restaurant traffic, but also distracted by the comings and goings in the reception area. If you’re a couple dining there, I would suggest requesting that you aren’t seated at this table as the constant disturbances detract from an otherwise wonderful experience.

Highly recommended.

i had the best meal at hotel d’urville, i cant have gluten or dairy and when i booked in advance i told them this. usually i will turn up and will be given 1 or 2 options, but i had numerous. the wait staff were fantastic and understanding. my partners meal was amazing too, and it wasn’t as expensive as we thought it would be (bonus) all in all, i cant say enough how beautiful the food was and I’ve continued to recommend to others!
