Had a good luncheon at Clearview. Didn't find the dining experience overwhelming but the food was good. The décor is just OK but tings do look a little tired. Good value for the money though.

Try these, they are so crunchie and salty- homemade chips but not the usual shape. The salt/pepper calamari was fresh and tasty. The pork belly dry. The tasting platter enough for two. The dark chocolate tart brilliantly rich and smooth.

Went to clearview to use a grabone voucher for a platter and bottle of wine, we arrived without a booking and had no trouble getting a table, the table we got was next to the fire, which was lovely as the weather was cooler outside. We had great service, the wine and platter were yummy, no pressure to hurry and... More

Spent a really pleasant Sunday afternoon indulging in some of HB's very best wines accompanied by a satisfyingly tasty Platter. The place was very busy but our service was still outstanding thanks to the wait staff and especially Santani and Lucy. This is one of the Bays Hidden gems! Great stuff team will definitely be back.

Despite the fact that Clearview don't make the best wine (although some may enjoy it as is their right), their restaurant is an absolute must eat whenever lunching or dining out in Hawkes Bay. Just a walk away from the shore, the atmosphere is excellent, the food really beautiful and the staff awesome.

Visited Clearview for Sunday lunch. Reservation was efficient friendly, as indeed was our initial welcome to the restaurant, though it was clear that they were struggling with service on this day. Half an hour for the kid's drinks to arrive and some time too before our food turned up. Other diners were having similar issues and apologies were eventually being... More

We really appreciate your feedback and I do apologise to your family as on this Sunday we were woefully shortstaffed (for a number of reasons). It was school holidays and we were delightfully popular and busy, we don't want to turn people away and try to oblige. I do hope you return as we have improved the macaroni cheese and... More

This is a very good lunch place for families if you want to combine it with some wine testing. There is a play ground just next to the lunch area. Overall a rustic feeling (froma positive point of view). Wine was good as well

We have been here several times over the years and the one thing that draws us back is the outlook and location near the sea. The food is good without being outstanding for the slightly high price. The service is also a bit average, we had to go up to the bar to order wine ourselves 10 minutes after arriving... More

We enjoyed a pleasant lunch, interesting menu, excellent service. However one dish was particularly disappointing, we wonder why as one of our guests had the same dish a couple of weeks earlier and it was much nicer both in presentation and taste. It's embarrassing when a guest recommends a dish to several others and it comes out poorly presented and... More
