We had walked around Wanganui and were looking for a place for a drink, The Ceramic Bar is ideal for people watching and provides a good range of wine, spirits and beer.

We called in for dinner and David, the maitre d' was very attentive and helpful. We enjoyed fine dining; the Angus fillet, Venison Loin and Chef's fish special. They were all superbly presented and tasted amazing. Mmmmm...well done!

We haven't been out for a date night for a while and Ceramic was the perfect choice. Outdoor seating right in the heart of town to watch the world go by, excellent service, and the best food in town. What more could you ask for?...More

One of the best places to have a long black and read the paper. An assortment of muffins and cakes and brilliant service.
