“Average food, good service”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Great service, dinnertime very quiet so no trouble getting a table out on the boardwalk looking towards the water. Unfortunately the meals were average including the steak which just wasn't up to scratch. In saying that we did not complain on site so they did not have the opportunity to respond to our concerns. Could have been a one off so I wouldn't say to anybody not to go.. nice setting.

“Sweet food.”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The food was really good and came out in like 10 minutes with a full restaurant. It had a great selection on the menu and in a really sweet location right across the road from the habour.

“Great meal, great service, and great view”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We walked down from our motel and had a couple of beers and an entree each. The meal was fabulous. It was well presented and the taste was exquisite. The service was prompt and the place has a great atmosphere.

“Good food and good location”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We went as we wanted to watch the rugby on Sky TV and were pleasantly surprised by the food - we had steamed mussels in ginger, lime and chilli, beek teriyaki salad and seafood linguini which were all excellent.
The staff were friendly, helpful and there when you needed them.
Good location with indoor and outdoor seating and a good atmosphere

“Lunch in the sun”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Livivg in Napier we are spoilt for choice with the many wonderful restaurants we have. However we are once again drawn to one of our favourites The Gin Trap.
Sitting on the deck enjoying the fabulous views , waving at passing tourists & enjoying the ambience on a beautiful Hawkes Bay day.
Great food , Great service , Great staff ... Favorite dish Seafood Linguini ( to die for ) complemented with a glass of Gewurztraminer.
