We had a very pleasant evening here tonight on a cold winter's night in Napier. The food was great- we had a mix of pizza, shared plates and salads , all of which were able to be served as gluten free. Friendly staff and interesting decor plus the bonus of being able to watch Sean Connery in Goldfinger on the TV screens! All in all it was a much better meal than we were expecting and definitely would come again.

Hello and Thank you for your review.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our food and our friendly staff, so appreciate the comments very much. Emporium was designed by a very well known restaurant designer Tom Skyring, it looks like its always been here despite us only nearing our second birthday.
We hope to see you again soon.

This bar/restaurant was conveniently located at the hotel we stayed at, so perfect for the Good Friday/Easter Sunday no-alcohol-served-without-food-law. Friendly staff coupled with good food and cocktails makes this a perfect combo.

The food was sublime and well presented. They even went out of their way to make a different dish for my friend who's is vegan. They made a vegestable stromboli (with their own homemade pasta) which wasn't even on the menu. They certainly go the extra mile. Highly recommended.
