Wonderful food that was served with grace and style. Great wine list highlighting local wines. All food sourced locally and cooked to perfection. Relaxing intimate restaurant with attentive but discreet staff. Thank you for a lovely evening.

A very pleasant meal at Mint with business colleagues. The food was top notch, and very nicely presented. The menu choice was good. The service was attentive, but unobtrusive. I really enjoyed the main course of lamb - very nicely done and presented. All up a high quality experience. Recommended.

A winter's evening and we decided to dine at Mint. The reviews didn't disappoint. The service was great, not too much, just right. The food was excellent, and an adequate serve size. Tasty and as described on the menu. Dessert was also great, we had bread & butter pudding. Just what I needed! It wasn't a busy night, so we... More

Staying for one night en route to Auckland we found Mint during our evening stroll. The menu looked so intriguing we entered and to our delight we were not disappointed. Excellent service, beautifully presented food and perfect wine choice for our meal. The food is cleverly put together with unexpected combinations, but, it is not pretentious, just the right amount... More

I happened upon Mint as the restaurant I planned to eat at was closed. It looks inviting and intimate and certainly is. The menu is high quality and full of technical dishes at absolutely great prices. The food is to die for with amazing presentation and surprising taste sensations. If your in Napier you must go!

Excellent food. A must try for all chocoholics is the chocolate log dessert. My partner & I can have that as a main!! The lamb was amazing, flavourful & melt in your mouth tenderness! Wonderful service. Highly recommend it. Definitely will be back.

A group of us dined at Mint and we were all very well pleased with our meals. The FAWC special was excellent - I don't think I've ever had such tender delicious venison and the beetroot purée and sour cherry flavours complemented it perfectly. I couldn't fit in dessert but stole a couple of spoonfuls of chocolate log - next... More

Four of us went to Mint last Friday and found the food, service, and value for money were all very good. Would definitely recommend it.
