The number of empty tables on a Saturday night should have been a guide. The service was average but not hopeless. The wine list is brief, to be kind, with very average offerings. The mains are well presented - but outrageously priced. We paid similar for staggeringly better at Euro a week before. Ravioli as a main - $32 with eight vegetable ravioli cases. Should have called the police to report a theft. They are having a lend of you at Fox, as the Australians would charmingly say.
Can only assume many previous reviews are from friends and family. There are many better options in Napier.

Wow I am so sorry to here your experience was so terrible. I assure you while our family does like to dine at Fox they do not review. We feel that really isn't the point of these review sights. We are a small restaurant with a small wine list due to space really, I am sorry you couldn't find something up to your standards. We do believe we are pretty reasonable and I do hope you did enjoy your meal even if you felt it was over priced. I do wish that you had voiced your concerns on the night. Again I am sorry we ruined your night out so completely.

When our host said he want dot go to Fox on Quay as he could hear the conversation, I thought you know that is so important and over the last few years with busy establishments you have forgotten that the art of conversation has been lost to sound blasting walls! So not only could we hear the conversation, but the food was fantastic! There was an awesome selection to choose from, it was beautifully presented and the turn around was just right. We finished on a great cheese board, that was just right in regards to the selection and the amount. A perfect meal!

Very Nice food, good portion sizes, Waiter was excellent and price was decent. Only small comment would be they should wait a bit before serving your main meal as we had a Seafood chowder for Entrée, was hard to finish our main as it was served quite fast. Would highly Recommend.

A casual cafe style atmosphere with good food. We booked via the website but the response seemed a wee slow.
