“Best restaurant experience ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

The setting, food and service was amazing! I would recommend it to anyone who appreciates fresh produce and exquisite flavours. The chef is extremely talented and every other restaurant experience I have had pales in comparision!

“Wonderful gourmet restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2009

During a three week stay in the Hastings/Napier area, my wife and I dined at several dozen area restaurants. St. Georges was our favorite. The owner/chef creates some spectacular food, beautifully presented. At lunch, the lamb marrakesh and blue cheese/pear salads were our favorites. When we returned for dinner the following week, we simply ordered "whatever the chef recommends". One of the dishes was the fish of the day (local flounder), the least expensive main course on the menu, and it was one of the best fish dishes that I have ever tasted. The rack of lamb was also excellent.

The restaurant is located just south of the main road between Hastings and Havelock North. The dining room is very attractive - with class and still a "homey" feel. The outdoor patio, situated between the vines of a vineyard, is perfect when the weather is nice. Service was impecable. Main dishes were priced between $28 and $36, and bottles of wine were priced between $24 and $68.

I would highly recommend this restaurant.
