Still tops in Hawke's Bay

Haven't had the pleasure of dining at the Mission for quite some time - silly really as often the best is where you should return, not try out new "exciting" places.

Always great food and an amazing view. This lovely Winery is set in such a nice location you feel like your at a home away from home. Efficient and pleasant staff, great wine and amazing food.

My husband and I drove up to this stunning location for a wine tasting and decided to stay for lunch. The whole estate is gorgeous and sets the tone for your dining experience. The salmon starter was to die for. The lamb and beef dishes were well presented and different flavour combinations on the plate complimented the overall dish (I... More

We arrived a bit too early for lunch so just ordered a few small plates, the food was lovely and service top notch. Gorgeous setting for a special occasion lunch or dinner and to sample some of the wines. Will definitely return every time we visit the Hawkes Bay.

We were travelling with our NZ family and sampling the culinary treats that NZ has to offer, unfortunately on this occasion we were slightly unlucky. Not that the food was bad, but for the most part it was average, likewise the service. Would we go again no. The restaurant was very busy, however that is no excuse and it appeared... More

A group of us had been in Hawkes Bay for a long weekend and were finishing off at Mission for lunch. Four of our party had to go home that morning but the staff at Mission didn't miss a beat. The weather was a bit uncertain so they had set up a room upstairs which was very nice but we... More

Every summer we visit Napier and always make a point of having dinner at the Mission Restaurant. The location at Mission Estate Winery is stunning – the building itself is beautiful set on the hill side overlooking the vineyard – the view from the grounds are stunning – aside from all this, the Restaurant is excellent – we have never...

We dined at Mission on a holiday Monday evening and were simply captivated by the surroundings, the fare and the service. We had a drink in the bar before being shown to our table outside under vines. Though the evening was a little chilly the abundant gas fired heaters mean that the table was very comfortable. It was magical to... More

I've eaten in some wonderful restaurants around the world - this one definitely makes it to my top 20 list! Great Food, superb wine, amazing service. I can't really say much more! Just go and visit, but make sure you book first!

My friend and I were looking forward to a good, boozy lunch at Mission. While the food was delicious the service was extremely poor and unenthusiastic. There was no effort, enthusiasm or passion for what was going on. We asked what we thought were intelligent questions about the menu and our wine selection but were given no guidance or instruction.... More
