What a fabulous place. Had dinner here on Friday with my cousins while holidaying in Napier. Loved everything! Food, wine , service, atmosphere.... everything!
Keep up the great work. Can't wait to return.

I recently dined for lunch at Napier’s superb Bistronomy, which offers one of the few places in Napier to experience high end nouveau cuisine at lunch time. While such food may be found in the evening in Napier’s CBD at places like Pacifica (and indeed at Bistronomy), or for lunch at wineries like Elephant Hill, the normal fare at lunch time in the city centre is limited to cafes or brunch type menus. Mister D is an option and while it serves very good food, it is actually of more bistro style than Bistronomy (which I would class as Gastronomy). The decor at Bistronomy is very contemporary, a cross between Scandinavia and Japan - very clean, organised and structural. It has an adventurous menu and a good wine list at some very reasonable pricing for the quality. If you wish, you can sit at the Chef’s counter and watch the artistry at work. Well worth a visit if you have an inquiring palate. If, however, you find it difficult to push culinary horizons beyond fish and chips, a pizza or a steak, then I do not advise a visit to this innovative restaurant.

A good balance between experimental and traditional food, an interesting, if slightly confusing menu offers a little more color than you would normally find in Napier. Good staff and good value for money. The only criticism I have is that the room is very ambient and they have bass heavy music playing just above comfort level, so you feel like you're having to raise your voice the whole time, rolling the volume back a little would really improve the vibe. But apart from that, highly recommended.

We have eaten many tasting menus over the years and Bistronomy's is definitely in the top 10. Inventive. Fresh. Well presented. Thank you for all the hard work you are obviously doing behind the scenes and for bringing together some of the best produce we had while in New Zealand. We all voted Bistronomy our favorite restaurant during our three weeks in New Zealand.

Look, this place has great food, you can’t take that away from them, however trying to justify the massive price for a minute amount of food with an accompanying story just doesn’t make the price tag worthwhile.
I consider this place “Try hard”, but the food is nice and it is well presented. You just don’t get much,
