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.

Great food in lovely atmosphere. Fantastic sharing plates both hot and cold. Stunning brisket dishes and pork belly to die for. Nice selection of craft beers and local wines. Very friendly service.

We arrived early on a Friday evening, around 5.30pm without a booking and were able to get a table. We were pleased we’d arrived early as there were reserved signs on almost every other table, a great sign that this is a popular spot. We...thoroughly enjoyed our meal, everything was super tasty, we didn’t even need to use the salt and pepper on the table. The food came out quickly and in a shared style which is what we were after. We’d definitely come back next time we’re in Havelock North.More

This place is slightly off the beaten track so much so it is located next to a coffee roasting place that we visited and didn’t notice this place. The decor is completely off putting as is the seating. However the food is really good. Served...as sharing platters 3 is more than enough for 2 people. Can recommend the bang bang cauliflower as the favourite. The choc fish dessert wasn’t really worth it. Great wine list and some fantastic Italian ones as well. Will go back and would be great in a large group.More

Definitely a go-to eatery for us when we're in the Hawkes Bay. Professional, friendly staff in a cheery dining room. And a very interesting small-plates menu. Try the artichoke and spinach dip. Excellent!

Having made a reservation we were looking forward to our family meal at Deliciosa. The place was reasonably busy when we arrived and we waited a few minutes before being asked by the lady at the bar if she could help us. When I told...her we had a reservation she didn’t say anything- just led us to the very back of the restaurant and gestured to a table next to the kitchen hatch. No words spoken but she slammed a bottle of water, some menus and some side plates down in front of us. No glasses. She then walked away. After a minute she walked past us to the kitchen and said very loudly that she couldn’t understand why everyone wanted to eat out tonight after a long weekend. Hardly very welcoming to the diners. Where we were seated was very loud as we had the restaurant music competing with the kitchen’s loud Indian music. We waited another five or ten minutes without anyone approaching us for service. At this point we made an excuse to another and left. What a shame as we had enjoyed a lovely meal here as a couple last summer and had been hoping for the same experience.More

The name matches the taste. We got a few plates to share and the food was really nice! One of the salads was quite cold which was a bit odd but otherwise loved it. The staff were also lovely, will definitely go back when I'm...next in Havelock northMore

A very buzzy atmosphere the night we went for dinner. Perhaps not the most authentic tapas menu - for one thing the dishes were huge - but all the offerings we went for were excellent. Definitely worth a try and we'd eat there again.

Fantastic range of Tapas dishes. Each freshly made and extremely tasty. Very friendly and attentive service. My only criticism would be the atmosphere in the restaurant would have been greatly improved if the background music was traditional Spanish/Mediterranean

Been here 4x in past year; always great service, however food quality and quantity for same items are inconsistent. Sometimes awesome, other times very average for price.

Four of us ordered a selection of dishes, which cane out in quick time. All very tasty with a great presence of taste and colour (veg!). We loved this food and were so pleased we accidentally stumbled across this place online. A+
