I've been living in Blenheim for nearly a decade, and I have to admit I drove passed this place more than a thousand times. 90% of them, it was closed. Well, that might have changed, because the Argosy looks very much up and running again, the new owners are looking after the place, and the food is rather exquisite for... More

Was looking for a budget friendly place to grab lunch whilst around the wineries and this place popped up. Had the chef's special seafood chowder and it was delicious. The rest of the menu, although typically cafe, lookd pretty good and affordable.

We have eaten here over the years and have to say that the new owners are much better than the previous. The menu is good, we had brunch here recently. The coffee is great. The service is good. I was really surprised there were not more people on a weekend morning. They have opened up a side room with a... More

Friendly staff....service can be a little slow if very busy, but it's worth waiting for. It was warm inside considering the time of the year. Nice atmosphere, really interesting information on the walls all about the Argosy plane, I learnt a lot.

This place changes owners all the time. Haven't been recently, but wouldn't bother anyways cause there are so many other choices in the area.

Food was good hearty burgers with a touch of class. Service was excellent and kids were entertained running around the Argosy aircraft. Highly recommend.

While we were given good service, and the Argosy plane was great to explore, I probably will not go back. I consider this a great place to go once, but not enough to keep going back. I will continue exploring other cafes and restaurants.. This is because I tend to travel through the Renwick area have either just left Blenheim... More

Had read good things so we popped out to the Argosy for late morning coffee and a savoury scone or similar treat. I have done a Barista course and can say with certainty that our flat whites were lattes and the coffee was bitter. No savoury scones etc but offered garlic bread. If it is a café then I expect...

A fantastic experience in one of the worlds more unusual planes. A small donation is all thats needed to climb aboard and relive days of not so old when this lumbering giant took to the skies between Wellington and Blenheim carrying cars and freight for Safe airways, or, flying to Chatham Islands with passengers enclosed in a specially designed passenger...
