On the whole, very nice

So we booked without knowing how his restaurant works. When we arrived we were told that due to communication breakdown 'on both parts' (really?) we were having 4courses. Ok. An explanation on seating would have sorted that! The pre starter was an onion creme brûlée which was delicious. We asked... read more

Everything about Ten Twenty-Four is a delight - rustic, but gentile farmhouse feel, fresh garden flower arrangements, wonderful attentive and knowledgable service, and outstanding cuisine! Kent Baddley is a terrific, inventive chef. He can put a new and wonderful spin on comforting favourites as well as create unusual new taste-bombs. It's the perfect place for a leisurely Sunday lunch with... More

I have been to this restaurant a number of times for lunch and dinner meals. This chief regularly changes the menu to suit the seasonal product available and the chief's creativity that is always evident. Always a pleasure to dine here.

Went to ten twenty four with my wife for her birthday. Had the 5 course degustation and must say there were things on there that I wouldn't normally try but everything was a delight. Top dish was the tuna melt in you're mouth. Highly recommend

Whenever we visit Hawkes Bay we visit many of the great restaurants, but Ten Twenty is also the highlight. From the décor, to the great service, to the amazing "mystery" food that you are served, everything about dinner there is exceptional.

The whole experience was fantastic. Great atmosphere, aesthetics and ambience was also great. Our waiter was polite, informative, professional, friendly and genuine. The food was well presented, very tasty and interesting. Compliments to the chef. The dining experience was a surprise menu which was a great idea to keep us curious and wondering what was coming next. The dessert topped... More

I recently took my boyfriend on a gloomy night to Ten Twenty Four for Taco Tuesday, to experience the Kent Baddeley cuisine / micro climate and boy was it a treat. I was absolutely amazed at the amount of creativity and madness that goes into the beautiful masterpieces (AKA food); Crazy insane in the membrane Melon Volcano water, Absolutely positively... More
