We always finish our two-yearly visits to Blenheim with a meal at Dolce Restaurant, and our meal there tonight was as good as ever - possibly even better than in past years. To begin with, our reception was friendly and immediate. Perhaps, since we were booked in at 6.15 pm, and knowing that they had a busy evening ahead of... More

There was no 'hello' when a group of us arrived to have coffee at this restaurant. The lady on the till didn't even smile & when she gave me my change, just plonked it down on the counter. No one seemed to be enjoying their job ... even the lady maiking the pizza bases. She had to rescue us out... More

Great savoury muffin that ticked all the boxes. Not the most welcoming of places and service was a bit slow. Forgive all as muffin was so good.

We visited Dolce a few days before Christmas (with out of towners in tow) for lunch and had a wonderful experience with great service and good food. The place was pumping with a good vibe and the Pizza's were awesome! Due to the above, we thought we'd visit again. So just after New Years we went for lunch. We sat... More

We had a lovely lunch here on Thursday. I was a bit dubious about trying the place with so many mixed reviews on Tripadvisor, but we went along nonetheless and I’m so glad we did. The restaurant was fairly busy but we were lucky enough to find a free table by the window with the sun streaming in. We had... More

On our one night in Blenheim, six of us turned up just after 6pm to a nearly empty restaurant anticipating a lovely meal based on TripAdvisor reviews. The waitress scratched her head, consulted her booking list and talked with another then advised us that "...there are people that like particular tables so we have no room...". One of our party...
