“Gorgeous Fine Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I love the Mission Estate Winery! Do not be put off by the fact that it is a winery as they serve all types of alcohol, although the Mission's wine is one of NZ's finest. Recently I have been lucky enough to eat at a few of Hawke's Bay's best fine dining restaurants and I always go back to the Mission. Simply because the food is amazing and the service is second to none! Although the Mission is fine dining their menu suits all budgets. There is nothing like sitting out on the lawn looking over Napier on a beautiful summers day!

“Unimpressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The old monastery building is lovely as are the grounds. We had made reservations for dinner. The food was over-priced and the service on the night we were there was slow and unfriendly. We were shown to a table in the corner and assumed that the tables by the windows were reserved. They weren't. Couples who arrived later were allowed to select tables. The food was very expensive and nothing special. This was a big disappointment.

“Lovely Old Building - Nice Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

We were there for a birthday - group of 6. Great selection from the menu, very well presented food, very friendly staff, good value at the top end of the price range (value for money) - overall an awesome experience, probably couldn't afford to do it every weekend though.

“Memorable meal in glorious location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

It may have been a damp, wet night but the restaurant was warm and cosy, likewise the welcome and excellent service. Fabulous food, ditto the wine, wish we were Kiwis and could treat ourselves regularly.....
