On Saturday St Georges Restaurant (which in my view is a bit of an under the radar well kept local secret) hosted a beautiful 3 course 80th birthday luncheon for a group of 50 guests for our family & friends. The venue has a relaxed...European feel to it conveniently located on the urban - rural fringe between Havelock North & Hastings, with its lovely outdoor courtyard adorned in grapevines, offering a sneak peek view out to talented chef Franky’s beautiful large organic vegetable garden - it feels like you could almost be anywhere in Europe that you choose to dream. The quality and delivery of this beautiful 3 course menu in the outside courtyard under the grape vines was exceptional; ranging from beautiful tempura king prawn starters, mains offering the likes of Hereford prime steak & beautiful freshly caught snapper & vegetarian options through to beautiful desert options such as crème brûlée, chocolate mouse all accompanied by a stunning selection of wines (the lovely Clos Marguerite Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc was a favourite by many). The service offered by restaurant manager Aby and his team to our birthday group was superb, they were very professional, friendly and perfectly subtly attentive. Additionally I have dined here several times in recent months with small groups of friends and have always enjoyed a beautiful quality dining experience confirming their offering has always been delivered to a consistently high standard. Thank you St Georges for your stunning luncheon & service everyone loved the experience.More

This is a fantastic restaurant with attentive friendly and professional staff. Serving awesome food presented in imaginative and clever ways. Matched with good wine and an outside seating area that is great on a balmy Hawkes Bay evening.

Three of us visited mid-week and from the moment we arrived we were beautifully looked after. Our meals were all delicious, beautifully presented and plenty to eat. We were given complementary palate cleansers between our starter and mains, and our desserts were divine! We had...excellent service and give full credit to Frankie, Kieran and the team. We know hard it is to please everyone, but rest assured, this time you did!More

Had lunch here with a large group of 20 last Saturday the 2/10 We had booked two weeks ahead and let them know we are for want of a better words we are drinkers. After we arrived to a very pleasant setting we all took...our seats and proceeded to wait 30 minutes before our first drinks order was taken. We then waited a further 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive. After about an hour and a few prompts from some our party they finally came and took our food orders. We asked if we could please place further drinks order as by this time our first ones were long gone. After a further 15 minutes our second drinks order was taken , many ordered two just make sure we had something to drink with now long over due lunch. Roughly two hours after arriving our food finally arrived and did not disappoint. It was fantastic and world class...fresh, full of flavor and expertly presented. Never did see the drinks waiter again and unfortunately we could not do desert as by now 3 and half hours had passed and our bus had arrived to pick us up. Then came the bill, they refused to take payment form each couple for what they had spent...even when we offed for the last person paying to pick the cost of any unpaid for items. (something we have done many times before in other locations) They instead they asked us to split the bill evenly so we all paid the same...With some couples spending only half of others due to drinks ect this was never going to fly. Instead one our group payed the entire $2500 bill and we sorted it later. In summery the food and location was perfect but service was at best bad to awful. We would have happily spent a lot more on drinks and deserts if only someone had bothered to come and get more orders from us . Get the service right and this place would be perfect and I would happily revisit.More

Visiting hawkes bay after researching the area we chose here for a special dinner out. However we couldn’t say a good thing about it. We couldn’t remove our coats as the place was freezing. And we got colder and colder. They clearly don’t pay for...their Spotify as ads were getting intertwined between songs. I had to send my goats cheese parfait back as it was frozen in the middle and my husbands lamb main was over cooked. We didn’t stick around for dessert as we were so cold it was unbearable. Service was good though.More

Amazing from booking to finish. The booking process with Kathryn was easy and she was super helpful with organising our party of 11. Aby was beautiful and helpful and kind. And the food was next level!
