This place was so good, I went there three times in 10 days! I loved the fresh donuts and the custard you injected into them, absolutely amazing!

Lunch was beautiful and tasty! The octopus appetizer was presented on warm fingerings potatoes with aioli. The sake-cured salmon was flavorful on a bed of greens. Nice wine and beer selections, with Hawke's Bay olive oil served with hot bread.

With family coming by train from Palmerston North, all dressed for Art Deco weekend, shelter from the persistent rain was a must. Greeted at the door, table for 8, few minutes later we were seated and met our bubbly enthusiastic waitress. We were so fortunate for such a busy weekend. Wine list was good with a surprising GeorgeTown Central Otago... More

The first visit we made was for nice, quiet meal for the two of us. Knowing this is a bistro atmosphere, and having looked in one other time when it seemed too noisy, we went early to avoid that. We had the best table in the restaurant and the service was fast. I, unusually, had ravioli (I usually want MEAT),... More

We stayed in Napier for one night during a tour of NZ and having read the reviews decided to eat here. We booked a table whilst being taken on a tour of the Art Deco buildings and that seems advisable as it was very busy by the time we had finished our meal. I had the fried bread with dip... More
