two excellent meals

This cafe / restaurant is part of a hotel and available to all comers. It capitalizes on it's location and deserves to. The food was very good for both late evening snack / desert and breakfast next day. Well patronised by Napier locals which speaks for itself.

We stayed at The Crown Hotel and this Restaurant is part of the same building complex. We had dinner and brunch here and enjoyed both. The chef uses a number of unusual ingredients with European/Nth African flavours. The lamb entree and main dishes were excellent. The chocolate panacotta desert was also yum! The service was very good and the wine... More

My guests and I had dinner here last week, the service was brilliant and the food was even better, I had the wild venison which was one of the best dishes I have eaten before, I would thoroughly recommend dining at Milk & Honey.

Went with 5 of us for brunch on a lovely Sunday morning. They told us there would be a wait, great there was but we new. Nice menu but staff happy to add and subtract. Great happy wait staff. Meal would be the best I have had. Not too big not too small, very tasty with best produce for everything,... More

The new chef Hayden Esau has revamped the menu and it now has some different and interesting items. The Asian fusion flavours are to die for. We went for lunch and it was great. A nice setting with good food - can't go wrong!

Staff inattentive,rude and unapologetic. We had to ask for menus and again to order, when tables around us turned up much later and were served before us. Food took an age to come and the place wasn't exactly busy. Brought out of town friends especially and were well and truly let down.

Despite arriving at the restaurant at 2.15 for lunch, the staff were welcoming. The service was warm and the food of a good quality. Had a slow cooked lamb dish and a pasta dish. Both delicious. Well worth a try.

It was the day of the Big Easy and the place was choker. Service was excellent - prompt and welcoming. Red grain salad was yummy, however pizza was greasy and fries limp.

Milk and Honey is attached to the Crown Hotel in Ahuriri, and is popular with hotel guests and locals alike. It's been a couple of years since we were here, but it's still as good as ever. The restaurant is light and airy with an Italian theme, and there is a sunny outdoor area. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable... More
