The Mission has always been the most dependably wonderful restaurant for service and fine food. However it would be better if they had smaller and varied lunch options. Also I was surprised that the chocolate and pear tart was over-baked and dry. So unlike The Mission. Nevertheless, I'd still go back - at least one more time.

After a day of admiring the Art Deco in Napier, we enjoyed the 'highlight' meal of our 2 week holiday in the North Island here. Wonderful food, service and an old world atmosphere made this a memorable night. We'll be back!

Everything about this place is stunning - the food, the wine, the setting, and the service is by far the best I have received anywhere in New Zealand. We arrived early for Sunday dinner and were welcome to take our aperos for a walk around the beautiful gardens. We dined on the terrace, plenty of excellent wines were available by... More

As a local we have often been for special occasions..you can rely on a 5 star experience! They provide a private room for a larger party, as well as providing a set menu that you decide upon with staff... which choices to include etc Great for visitors as the setting has great views and lots of history. Tasting is available..... More

This restaurant has a beautiful setting (indoors and outdoors), creative and excellent cuisine, and attentive/knowledgeable serving staff. We had a wonderful lunch under the arbor outside - it was winter but they had a clear wind screen in place that made it warm and comfortable, but kept the lovely view. I'd recommend this place any time of year. We stayed... More

We had lunch here and loved the experience. The food, wine and service were all excellent. To keep the cost down, we had an entree and dessert each which was plenty for lunch.
