We had a post wedding lunch at Mint for 40 and Ruth and Steve could not have been better to work with in organising it. Their flexibility to accommodate all our guests, from 3 months to 90 years old was a delight - their suggestions for different things along he way were always 100 % on the money and the food sublime! Every one of our guests raved about what a nice place Mint was and how the food was fabulous. Ruth and Steve we can not thank you enough for the wonderful lunch and how easy you were to work with in organising it. Anyone planning a meal in Napier, big or small, should call Mint -you will not regret it!!!!,!

We went here for lunch whilst in Napier and could not have enjoyed it more! The food was fantastic and service out of this world - anyone visiting Napier who does not eat here is missing a real treat :)

Four of us went to Mint to celebrate my mother's birthday. We purposely chose four different appetisers/entrees so we could share and try a bit of each. All of these were highly enjoyed and were a treat to eat. The mains did not disappoint either. We were too full for dessert but thought we would have a look at the menu. Yes, we did order and were very pleased with what we received. The wine list was excellent as was the menu - with just the right amount of choice. The staff were friendly and helpful and some of the best I've come across. The decor was elegant yet cosy and the artwork by a local artist.

I will gladly recommend Mint to others and look forward to dining there again.

I had no difficulty choosing from the menu. Both courses were well presented and very tasty.I choose the beetroot salad and slow roasted lamb. Good choice of wines too.
