“MY BEST MEAL IN NEW ZEALAND”
Reviewed February 11, 2008

Pacifica is a small and very special restaurant on the Marine Parade at Napier. The humble facade belies what awaits within!!! We had the tasting menu with matched wines. The co owner and chef's partner has a formal training in wine making which wonderfully informs the choice of wines The matching of the wines with each course was immaculate. Each course of the food was superb. After five weeks of eating as well as possible in New Zealand we still consider this meal our most enjoyable and successful. Every element had that indefinable je ne sais quoi and above all else zing! Freshness, separateness of flavours, balance, presentation and excellent value for such quality.
My only hesitation about sharing this secret is next time I visit I will not be able to get in!!!!!
