PROS: - staff was FAN_TAS_TIC ! No really, it's easy to get good service, but quite hard to find exceptional service. I think we had a total of 4 staff serving / interacting with us during the dinner, and they all "added" something: an anecdote, a recommendation... While not being intrusive or annoying - I was not expecting to find... More

We had a throughly enjoyable evening. Staff were quick, attentive and knowledgable about their dishes. Menu was explained by a guy you came and sat at our table and chatted for ten minutes. We had been told the steaks were exceptional so we had to try them and we were not disappointed at all. Place was packed and very noisy.... More

Our group of 40 took over the place recently (sorry to any other would-be diners that were turned away that night). What an extraordinary experience! The food was absolutely top class - including multiple options for vegetarians and those with special dietary requirements - but what really sets Gramado's apart is the astounding level of service, provided with genuine warmth...

From the plate with rows of chillies ordered by heat rating, to the vegetarian options for some of the signature dishes, to the chocolate desert, this restaurant was so so much better than you's expect in a small town like Blenheim - and so much better than offerings typically found in large cities. New Zealand isn't a haven of South... More

Six of us were booked into Gramado's for a Birthday Dinner. The Maitre D went through the menu which had some appealing South American Dishes. We ordered a round of cheese balls and something else that looked and tasted like Bitte Bollen (a Dutch favourite) as our starters. I chose the Feijoada as my main. A type of smoked black... More

We had dinner here on Friday night and thoroughly recommend it to anyone. As previous reviews state - food, service, ambience are all wonderful and truly authentic. We loved the fact that the waiter brought over a separate plate of chillies for us to try, explaining the different levels of heat to us. The chillies really did make a difference... More

What an awesome experience. My Brazilian wife and I came here expecting great things having seen Lal the positive reviews and we were not disappointed. Saulo and his team put on a show of professionalism, passion and attention to detail that made the experience so special. From the escondidinho which was amazing to the feijoada which had so much flavour,... More

Right. There are no even ambivalent reviews For this place. Food, service, ambience is just perfect. But then it's even more. The owner, Saulo sits down and has a private wine tasting with us. There is a speaker right over our heads and the music is distracting. They turn off just our speaker. Each dish is occasion for a conversation... More
