Its amazing, every time I think I've found the best Hawkes Bay restaurant, something else comes along to impresse me even more...
This used to be the Hettinga Wine Estate some years ago I believe, and it went under - I think it still grows wine grapes however. We had booked this out on a Monday evening (yes, ouch - Monday) for our Managerial Staff Xmas party. We had great samplers brought around to get us going - at this point was the only downer of the evening (until I got too drunk and broke a couple of glasses) where I asked a young staff member what was in the food he supplied me with and didn't know.
The meal serving were actually pretty large. The serving was elegent, but the flavours were something else - the smoked pork belly was what my wife ordered, and I'd never tried anything that tasted remotely like that before in my life. I had a chunk of beef that filled me up - I was extremely impressed. The wait staff ensured we were well looked after. Price wise, for the 25 of us there, it was pretty good.
Came here for a basic breakfast about 5 months ago, but this was spectacular - keep up the great work people of 1024!!
