good but not special

First of all there's not much to choose from in this area - Ahiriri. I think that we expected more based in personal recommendations from the hotel (navigate) next door but we were completely satisfied with the food. The main and dessert were better than the entrées. $80/head for 3 courses and a... read more

Very good breakfast here. This restaurant is associated with the Crown Hotel (a short walk across the parking lot, looking out over the bay). They are also open for lunch and dinner which looked quite gourmet. But we had breakfast included in our room rate and enjoyed it. The oatmeal with preserved fruit was particularly good.

Another fantastic night with a good group of friends at a really great venue. The Chef's Monthly Friday 3 Course dinner is always good value and well presented. Good staff and a friendly atmosphere make the night. Have now been to about 6 of them and really enjoy the outing.

A lovely mix of authentic and innovative Italian cuisine. Great cocktails too. Attentive service. We've had both breakfast and dinner here.

Located in Ahuriri, a short drive from Napier City centre, this is an absolute must for dinner! A delicious, varied menu, with everything cooked beautifully, and presented with obvious pride. Friendly, professional service that we could not fault at all. Staff were knowledgeable about the menu, which is always appreciated. Definitely recommend dining here. Thanks for a perfect night, Milk... More

We had dinner here and were very impressed with our meals which were well presented and delicious. The desserts were to die for! Great choice of wines too. Recommended.

My wild venison steak with roast veg was great and the pasta of the day was good too. We had breakfast there and that was excellent.
