We really enjoyed our evening there.
The building is fantastic, and the food and the service lived up to it.

“Outstanding dining”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

19th Wedding anniversary dinner with my wife, three course meal, starter, main and dessert.
Delivered on time, maitre D and waitress was friendly and helpful.
We had the pork meal which was delicious, plenty on the plate followed by a really nice dessert.
We had a gift voucher which we only used part of, they were kind enough to give us another voucher with the remaining $value. there is no time limit on the voucher, this is really very good service from one of the top Taradale restaurants.
Set in traditional old monastery/vineyard with a great view of Hawkes Bay, would recommend as a place to dine for a special occasion.

“Wine tasting”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We visited the Mission Estate Winery on an Art Deco Tour. The wines were varied, a fabulous setting overlooking Napier. A touch of class in beautiful surroundings.

“Fabulous evening thank you!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We celebrated my Mum's 80th birthday and it was a fabulous night with lovely food! The service was excellent and as we had two children with us they arranged their meals first allowing us time to relax and enjoy the evening. The food was absolutely lovely and service attentive but not overpowering. The building is just beautiful and next time in Napier I would love to go for lunch to enjoy the outdoor dining it offers. Mum did not order a dessert but they arranged a lovely tasting platter for her with "Happy Birthday" piped in chocolate at no charge. Thank you for a fab night!

“Touch of Class”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We had been travelling for a few days and had been eating in cafes and local restaurants, so this was to be a better meal. We were very happy with what we received, and prices weren't that much different from other places we had looked at. The setting is just magnificent - an old seminary on top of a rise looking back over Napier. The wine tasting area was comfortable and of a high standard. The dining room was pleasantly formal - of a standard, but not constrictive. The meals my wife and i ate were of excellent quality, and were of a size that didn't make the meal an endurance and guilt exercise. As reasonably small eaters we could enjoy an entree and a main course, and they willingly made us a smaller dessert to share. Service was prompt and attentive. The Mission wines advised were well matched with the food served. The weather was against us sitting outside on their terrace, but I expect that would be a bonus.
