Went with my Dad for a nice dinner. Mains are all over $30, and small plates are around $18 - they are TINY! Albeit delicious and great flavours, just a bit disappointing size-wise. We went to Macdonald's afterwards!!!!

Stopped by for a coffee, only to find an amazing eatery & bar. Superb cheeses (best "blue" I've had since France.) Incredible wine list, including the best non-Alsatian Pinot Gris. Friendly, helpful staff added to a wonderful light lunch. All this 5min walk from the cruise ship shuttle drop-off point.

Up to the point we left the restaurant, we had thoroughly enjoyed the food the venue and the service. We had stolled some 30 yards when a barman ran out of the restaurant and shouted we hadn’t paid the bill. This was in front of all the customers eating at outside tables as well as passersby. We were stopped in... More

Emporium has become our go-to dining establishment in down-town Napier due to the consistently good food and service . . . one such example: Had a meal at there last night with a small group of friends prior to going to a show. As soon as we walked in they asked if we were going to the show so that... More

What a beautiful space on the ground floor of Masonic Hotel. Stunning interior & lots of seating options. It was buzzing on Wednesday night at 5pm. Excellent wine list & the food was superb. Don't miss the mushroom ravioli in Duck stock & whipped Kumara- OUTSTANDING!

We enjoyed the food so much we went back twice more. Friendly service too. Nothing was too much trouble. Just need to vary the menus a little more perhaps

Not fine dining but good bar food. Service from the moment you walk in is warm and friendly. Staff kindly added a table so we could join friends and this process continued during the evening as more friends arrived. Lots of happy vibe at the bar from locals and tourists alike. Good wine list.

Lovely building with awesome food and coffee. You can dine inside or out, and if you are inside there is lots of lovely old bits and pieces to look at. The coffee was amazingly good.
