First time in Martinborough and badly wanting lunch, we rocked up to Medici and enjoyed a lovely meal. I had the crispy salt and pepper squid with Asian slaw, it was delicious, and my wife had the mussels in a beautiful rich sauce. Both were the perfect portion size and we each tried a Pinot Gris - one from Te... More

Dropped in for a spot of lunch - such a laid back, relaxing place. You can sit back and chat, read the papers or just watch the world go by in lovely Martinborough whilst you sip your drinks and eat. And the food is SO good!

Cafe Medici is a quaint little cafe in Martinborough. Great coffee and tea, this little cafe seems really popular based upon the number of patrons. Good service.

Had a great meal at Medici , the service was good and the food is the best we have eaten locally. The pork belly dish is delicious and a good size .The fish and chips are great , hand cut fries the best.

We had lunch and coffee in Cafe Medici one day and returned the following day for an afternoon coffee and then for dinner. The coffees and lunch were very good indeed, but the dinner was brilliant. The waitress recommended two local Pinot Noirs, both of which we enjoyed. We had an excellent chicken liver parfait for entree, but the lamb... More

Everything thing was pretty spot service, atmosphere and food. I only dropped one star because the hollandaise( although nice itself) was a bit overload on my wives eggs(see picture). But other than that a lovely spot for breakfast in the sun! I would recommend.

I love Cafe Medici. Either for a delicious brunch or for dinner, you won't be disappointed. Friday nights they often have live music which adds a great atmosphere, but the food is amazing at any time. Try it soon.
