We were probably expecting something a little more refined given the area but E10 at the Pukemanu was a standard tavern kind of affair. Not feeling like a burger, we were left with limited options so went with a serve of mussels and a cheese fondue. The mussels were fine but not outstanding in any way. The cheese fondue was... More

Went out to the bar on Monday night after a small bar crawl in town with some friends. Order a round of pints on instinct for the group of friends for $8 a pint. Saw a sign later on that said Monday nights had a special on quarts of beers for $7, meaning double the beer for a dollar less.... More

Just had the most dissappointing "Burger" off the Bar Menu[which reads the same as Tens menu} The burger bore no resemblance to the description on the two Menus! Instead of an Angus Beef Burger, we got a commercial meat pattie, in a soggy commercial bun spread with some black slurry, bit of iceburg lettuce, slice of tomato &two greasy onion... More

A family visit to Martinborough started with a light lunch at Pukemanu. We were told there would be a wait and appreciated the honesty. In the end the wait was not as long as we were told and the food was "good pub grub", nothing spectacular but well cooked and presented. The waiter was very friendly, attentive and professional. We... More

In a foodie wine town, this place was a wasted meal. Calamari was over cooked, rubbery and fishy, fondue was mediocre, with stale bread. Iceberg lettuce was was interesting choice, sour and minimal. Don't bother ordering a side salad, it's not real lettuce. Halloumi burger was edible. Server was nice.

Very good atmosphere great meals and good place for relaxed dinner out. Even recoiled a meal when we discovered someone had an allergy to one of the meals. Was no problem for them. Would definitely come again

Decided to try the restaurant now it's E10. The shrimp cocktail, was tasteless and the shrimps were quite watery. The main meals were very poor, vegetables cold. The waitress needs some training, leaning over people to deliver meals without even talking or saying excuse me. There were 4 of us and none of us rated our meals, and for the... More

Had a nice meal the other Monday night. Was kids eat free deal, so worked out well. My rib-eye fillet combo was perfectly cooked, and also the vegetarian pasta, which they made up especially. Friendly country service. No frills but nice country atmosphere. The Sticky Date Pudding was awesome.
