Delicious Food, great setting

Clearview is a great place to spend an afternoon by the sea, drinking wine and enjoying the best of Hawke's Bays's fresh local ingredients.

We dropped in at Clearview on our way back from the Gannet Overland Safari. The platter was really excellent with a selection of meats, cheese, olives and artichokes. We loved their wines and bought an excellent bottle of Cabernet Franc (would like to buy this wine in Canada!!) and a Savvy.

First impressions are often wrong. Never more so than when you visit this winery/restaurant. The approach to the winery and the car park give no clue what ever to the meal you are about to enjoy. Even the "dining room" itself is un-prepossessing. However, the menu starts to give you the impression that maybe your selection of this restaurant may... More

Their entry in the official leaflet,& sign on the road states "open every day 10-5". We arrive on a Tuesday early March, road side sign "open"; arrived at the winery cellar door 4.30 - locked no sign of life. The location is one of the furthest from Hastings and so likely to be on a travellers itinerary later in the... More

I feel there is some context needed to this insulting feedback: On this day a severe weather warning was in place with regards to cyclone Pam which had already destroyed Vanuatu. Civil defense closed our only beach road access due to the high seas. We also had to close and the staff member remaining on-site did offer you limited service.... More

All the food was delicious and enjoyed with Clearview sav blanc. The service was good without being obtrusive. It was a lovely day to have lunch outside under the canopy. Will go again when next in Napier

Elegant and scenic views of the mountains. Great food and great service. Be sure that you look at the prices before you are seated. Several people were seated and then decided to leave after reviewing the menu.

Don't get me wrong as this is a very popular place to eat as far as wineries go, but it didn't quite live up to that X factor meal I was looking for. The meal didn't get me excited although I am fussy these days. As an example my wife was given 2 pieces of pork belly "because they were... More

This venue used to provide good food at a good price. It has now gone down the extravagent hyper-priced route for small appetites. 4 of us attended after being in the UK for 3+ years. Previously visits showed Clearview had a menu of main courses for around $20 NZD, Today $30+ NZD seems to be the norm, and the amount... More

We arrived 5 minutes before the kitchen closed. No problem for these friendly welcoming people. Lavish (free! wine tasting) followed by excellent food, amusing waiting and wine staff which was very refreshing after the frosty reception we got at Craggy Range. Keep up the great work!
