The lamb and salmon took 40 minutes after a 20 minute wait to have our orders taken, but they were both tasty. Nice atmosphere, easy walking distance to 171 on Main motel.

The restaurant offered very good quality food and the service was excellent - even given that the staff were coping with a very large visiting bus party.

Three weeks into our touring holiday of New Zealand, this was the best restaurant we had eaten in. The food was well prepared with quality produce. The lamb was extremely good according to my wife. I had the pork wrapped in prosciutto which was excellent. The only downside was the wait which was over 30 minutes from ordering. I guess... More

My partner and I were really excited to try out the newly renovated Quench restaurant. However, we were severely disappointed in the competence of overall management. It was obviously a busy night but most tables seemed to have reservations, meaning that the under-staffing was intentional. Poor communication between teams. However, the restaurant manager who seated us was lovely and went... More

We ate here after the wine and food festival, thinking that it would be easier than going out after a day on our feet at the festival. The decor is modern, in line with the rest of the hotel that has just been decorated and the restaurant overlooked the pool, where there was live music playing. We arrived at 7:30... More

For dinner, had fillet steak. Small, well presented and tasty but for the first time ever, there was a hunk of inedible gristle in my steak which was really disappointing. However, followed it up with the best sticky date pudding I've ever had! Lots of sweet sauce and extremely satisfying 😃 Breakfast was worth 2 stars at most. Advertised in... More

We went to Quench with family and were very happy with everything. The food was lovely - good steaks and chicken - the service was very good and the prices were reasonable. We will be back.

We ate here on our last night in Blenheim and it was well worth the wait. Although the restaurant was busy we were never left unattended and along with the food and wine a very fulfilling and satisfying night was had by all.

Recently renovated, the Chateau Marlborough and Quench Restaurant in particular needs a visit. Entrees were Scallops (superb fig chutney) and very light Calamari. For mains we enjoyed the Venison, Steak and lamb rump. All meals were excellent and definitely will return. Good selection of wines to top off a great evening.
