OK pub grub but nothing to write home about. Service was rushed and uninterersted, tables left uncleared for too long, food scraps on the floor and a general feeling that said "we don't really care much".

Had a lovely dinner here - food was tasty, service was excellent. Fish bites were wonderful and we really enjoyed the cauliflower, macaroni and cheese dish to go with our steaks. Extensive wine list. Would definately eat here again. Bookings recommended !

Service was prompt, and there was the option to sit inside or outside. Coffee was great. While the food was nice, it could have benefited from salt - unfortunately there was no salt or pepper on any of the tables.

Stopped in for a drink and to use the restroom on an Art Decor tour of downtown. Lots of people here enjoying themselves. We enjoyed the historic interior including the marble Art Deco fireplace.

We had dinner at the Emporium during a 2 night stay in Napier. The atmosphere was relaxed but this did not detract from the service or the food. Our waitress, an English lass from Oxford, was very pleasant, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Both...More

The emporium restaurant is a good place to eat in Napier. It has a good vibe with the Art Deco decor and food is a class above normal pub fare.
