Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had a great meal at Diva. All 4 meals were excellent. Simple menu and great tasting food. Steaks perfectly cooked and lamb shoulder tender. The Waiter was informed about the wines and the food and his service was snappy, helpful and polite. New decor and it should be buzzing with the quality of the food and presentation. You must try.

We dined here on New Year's Eve, and enjoyed a very tasty meal. The service was very professional and well received. The pork sliders were to die for and worth eating every time we go to Diva. I enjoyed the mushroom risotto, also delicious. We finished our meal with dessert and I wished I'd taken a photo of my Affogato as it was the most generous serving of icecream I'd ever had in many, many affogatos around the world!

Very good place, we got lunch there $15.00 lunch’s expected them to be small so got 3 (1 each and 1 to share) but they were all decent sized and very delicious. Great staff, very friendly. The salad was good however gassed chicken for an extra $5 which was such a small amount we thought they had forgotten it but turns out it was at the bottom of the salad and was incredibly small and crumbly.

Food and presentation very poor. Burgers served in plastic baskets and burgers were both very soggy. The fish dish was uneatable. The young man who served us was very pleasant but we felt staff (3) just wanted to go home as we were the only people eating.

We were visiting from Hamilton and booked a group of 10 on Saturday night. We were put in the room right down the back. The room had a musty smell and the 'garden' had weeds growing through it. Not sure why we were put there when there were other tables available inside. Drinks were brought fairly quickly but we waited well over half an hour to get dinner orders in. We could see our waitress sitting down on her break eating dinner. She didn't look very happy. We ended up having to ask if we could order and another waiter came. We then had to wait about 45 minutes for food even though the restaurant wasn't busy. When we asked the waitress why dinner was taking so long, and pointed out the 9 year old in our group was waiting, she was indifferent and said we didn't say we wanted the kid to get dinner first. Isn't that common sense? The food was average - not bad, not great. Clearly this place is understaffed and can't get good wait staff. The owner is perhaps not interested in providing meals and is more about selling alcohol to the late night punters. I should have heeded the other bad reviews before booking but I thought we would give it a chance. Definitely won't be back.

Ordered the pan fried fish and chips what i got was 3 pieces of overcooked dry and burnt fish. On complaining i did get a full refund, however, the evening started off with empty salt and pepper shakers, warm water glasses and unchilled water, no one offered us dessert or coffee. On talking to the manager he said that they had had a busy day. That is no excuse for poorly cooked food or bad service. The restaurant was not even busy when we were there. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone .

Having been to Diva prior to lockdown, I wonder if the menu now offers less options. Is it my imagination or are the portions smaller. Great service. Food was as described on the menu but it lacked flare. Very happy waitress.

While the service was great, the food from the kitchen was very disappointing. Both the Pork Rib meals were tough and under cooked, while the seasoned vegetables were coated in way to much garlic and over powering the taste of the vegetables. We let the duty manager know but he wasn't interested in doing anything about our feedback, so a very disappointing experience.

Love the ambience of this place. Welcoming staff, great service and always great food. The chicken pieces take some beating and the steaks are consistently tender and perfectly cooked. Recommend this restaurant 👌

A lovely little restaurant and bar in Havelock North. Lovely meals with a good range of options. Two of us had the pork belly which was delicious and another person had fish of the day which was accompanied which he said was perfect. Bar is at one end with a tv but not a bother for diners. A nice informal and friendly environment and I will definitely go there again in the future.

Went in the late afternoon for a drink and relax on Friday. A very warm cosy place to gather with friends... Crispy chicken wings and salt and pepper squid - AB FAB! Our hostesses Kim and Jessy - gorgeous friendly professional waitresses, who made our evening bubbly and happy.

Bad service and misleading too. My lamb shoulder was meant to have asparagus and a bed of cauliflower puree. Instead I got a bed of hummus and parsley. I asked for a beer and never got it, but found that the did add it to my invoice. Rubbish place. Stay away.
