We took some friends there for lunch recently and were advised at local Information Centre that it was worth a visit to the restaurant. The waiter was more than detached, I would say somewhat indifferent or even a little arrogant. The outside tables encapture the...More

We had a fantastic lunch at Bloom Restaurant. The steak and lamb meals were superb. We recommend this restaurant. The wine tasting prior to lunch was also great

Bloom Restaurant is located just south of the beautiful Martinborough Wine Village at Murdoch James Estate vineyard, one of New Zealand's most highly regarded Pinot Noir producers. Just 10 minutes drive from the town square and located in a stunning elevated setting with panoramic views, Bloom offers a range of dining options, or just a coffee and/or a glass of wine to relax with after an afternoon exploring nearby vineyards. Sit on the deck in the summer months and watch the river trickle by at your feet and the grapes growing nearby. Or, in Winter, sit indoors by the crackling fire, and enjoy a slow, relaxing meal. Our cuisine is always sourced locally and only the freshest ingredients are used. For a sample of our menu, check our website, or call for more information.
