“Top Night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

I recently went to the Westshore Inn with my partner for an evening meal. I had the ribs as a main and washed them down with a few of the many Craft Beers available. Definitely the best ribs I have ever had, I was so full after the meal that we decided to walk home. The Westshore Inn is a great place for a relaxed evening with good food and a great choice of drinks and a very reasonable price. The service provided by all the staff was perfect and Jeremy is a great host
We very much look forward to our next visit

“A Hawkes Bay treasure.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Fantastic night out. Lovely food, great service, yes the spare ribs are fantastic, my husbands seafood platter looked so good, the teens eyes popped out their heads when they saw their icecream Sundaes. 9 of us dined there and we all enjoyed it, no complaints .

“Ribs were amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Visited the Westshore Beach Inn, and WOW what a place to dine. The service was fantastic, and what a selection of Craft beers. Ribs especially are the best ribs I've had in a long time!! Will definitely be back.

“Disappointing Roast, Great Ribs & Service with a Smile”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

We went here based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. I ordered the Roast of the Day which was Pork, and as it turns out I got the last dregs of the roast as there had been a large takeaway order for 20 roasts before I put my order in so I got no crackling and no apple sauce which is something you definitely expect with a Pork roast! I would have expected them to tell me that and ask if I would prefer to order something else, because if I knew I wasn't going to get crackling and apple sauce I would DEFINITELY have wanted to order something else. So needless to say, the roast was probably the worst roast I have ever eaten. If I was rating only the food and only my dish, my rating would be 1 out of 5. Fortunately what my partner ordered was a lot better. He ordered their famous ribs, and the sauce on those ribs was just amazing! Better than Lone Star! The service here was very friendly, we felt very welcomed to Napier by the warm reception we received here. I would go back again but only to try the Alpaca Burger as I am extremely intrigued. But I would say - only go here for a drink or to have the ribs!
If you want a really fantastic restaurant to go to with a difference, go to Restaurant Indonesia!

Well, I can honestly say we were all gutted when we read your review - the kitchen were too. Sometimes we do get it wrong and its the putting right that counts, I hope we did on the night. At least we got one half right and our staff made you feel welcome. Look forward to having a chance to put it right. Cheeers & Beers Jeremy Bayliss
