Excellent food

Visited Estuarys purely by chance and was very impressed. Excellent menu with plenty of choice. I chose the John Dory fish for mains and don't think I have ever eaten fresher fish. Beautifully presented and superb flavours in the accompanying mash and vegetables made this a standout meal for... read more

We were allocated a table outside which had a magnificant view of the estuary. There was a excellent menu with something for everyone. The food was delicious - well prepared and presented. We took advantage of Bring your Own wine - a bonus. The service was excellent not hurried but efficient. One of the best meals we had during our... More

Small quiet restaurant with a good range of dishes and wines plus blackboard specials which our party of threes chose from. Good service, great food, and nice atmosphere in a restaurant attached to a motel/motor lodge.

Lovely sunset over the estuary accompanied with some BYO Chardonnay. Second time here in two months and the food was delicious. Four of us and we all went for the specials. Not disappointed at all. Pre ordered the apple and raspberry dessert to make sure we did not miss out! Wait staff could smile a little more ( they seem... More

In Napier lots of restaurants are closed on Mondays. We eventfully wandered in to Estuaries which is across the small body harbour At first looks not promising but the Meal turned out to be more than acceptable. The wine list was primarily local wines which as a visitor I think is correct

We have had a couple of meals here now and each time we are pleased to see that there is more times to have a meal of different style, a menu that is really great. Nothing swanky just good food and great service, and in my book that is what it is all about

Been a couple of times and the food is devine. Bit pricey but definitely worth it. Nice outlook over the estuary but the restaurant is a little small. One of my favourite places to eat though

Upon arrival for our reserved time, we were advised that the kitchen was very busy and that they would not be able to take our order for 15-20 minutes. This is exactly what happened, at which time the waitress informed us that because they were busy, there would be a further delay in bringing our food, another accurate prediction. I... More

We dined at Estuarys on New Years Eve. Restaurant was extremely busy and there was a wait time which we were informed of at the outset. We didn't mind as we were with out of town visitors and had plenty of catching up to do. The Waiter (male) recommended a very nice wine instead of what we planned to have... More

My Husband and I dinned here on New Years Eve. The setting is very romantic and tranquil. The service from the waitress was very good. We went to order the rye breads but they were no longer available even though they were still on the menu. My husbands entrée of blackened chicken served with bacon had no bacon in site... More
