If you are a real chocolate lover then this is the place to visit. It gives you first hand knowledge about chocolate and how they make it. They allow tours thru. There is a nice cafeteria and shop so you can eat and buy good food and other interesting goodies.

We went to Silky Oak on a tour from a cruise chip and so were with a big crowd. We were on a time frame and while the talk regarding the making of chocolate was interesting, it was hard to see. The museum was interesting and the cafe had a good range of food. There were clean toilets on site which is always a plus. If I went again, I would probably try and go in a smaller group.

You do receive a free tasting when you arrive here but we'd been spoilt at another NZ chocolate factory when you could ask to taste any flavour you wanted. However, the chocolate was fine and we did cheerful add to our stash of sweetie things and bought a range of different treats.

We had a Day Tour with Napier Classic Cars that included a surprise visit to Silk Oak Chocolates. This was a highlight of our Napier Tour. The chocolates are excellent, and we enjoyed coffee and lunch at the Cafe on the property. But the highlight of our Tour was meeting Jeanette, the owner of Silk Oaks Chocolate! Jeanette is knowledgeable of chocolates, plus she is a witty and charming conversationalist. We really enjoyed visiting this wonderful shop and stocking up on excellent Chocolates and Fudges.

Good selection of food available, nice coffee and very good service. The Pantry and Gift shop were very nice to look in as was the Chocolate Shop. Lovely selection and some products wrapped in beautiful colours of foil. Greeted immediately when we walked in with a sample tray of milk and dark chocolate to try. My mother in law made a purchase and she was well looked after by the staff. Thank you.
