“Very memorable and artistic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

Our most beautiful lunch ever at Ten Twenty Four in Napier. After this lunch full of surprises, like the sake scrambled egg with wasabi yogurt caviar, the fragrant Hapuka fish wrapped in banana leaf, gorgeous floral silken tofu, the amazing floral and fresh Evolution Salad, the marshmallow chocolate ravioli and plum brûlée, the guacamole, plum & chocolate, and lemon curd homemade ice-creams, we lost interest in lunches for the next few days!!! Definitely highly recommended if you are in the area. You will be blown away by the presentation! The chef used to have his own restaurant in Wellington. His name is Kent Baddeley. Please check out their website for more photos of their wonderful creative dishes.

First class 3 course lunch today. We were delighted with the whole experience . Food fun and tasted amazing. The waiting staff were superb . The prices are very reasonable considering how imaginative , beautifully presented and yummy each course was.
My husband and I will be back in a couple of months to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary .
Well done team.

“A must go place for me when visiting Hawke's Bay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014 via mobile

This was the second time I had been here with a group for lunch. Again a fantastic experience and lunch. Kent just uses in-season local produce when he can and turns it into magic food. Between Hastings and Napier although closer to Hastings. Highly recommended.

“Fan fan tastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

This has to be the best restaurant in Hawkes Bay - thank you Kent for coming to Hawkes Bay from Wellington.
The food is so fresh and seasonal - the service fantastic - presentation out of this world - and if you are a dessert lover like me try the Marshmallow ravioli - you won't be disappointed.
We have dined a few times and each time we take friends who haven't been before they are overwhelmed by how good it is.

“Over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

This is a place you'll either love or think is over-rated. Is the 3rd visit & each experience is the same, too much hype for what turns up on the plate.
The food is adventurous in its putting together which makes for a bit of a fruit salad look, just too much going on on the plate & the flavours don't always come together unfortunately.
A lot of variety on the drinks menu but each time they've run out of the wine I was drinking or the beer.
The wait staff are friendly enough but lack a lot of service detail.
Unfortunately I think this was 3rd strike for me.
