Went for a drink and a few fries on a sunny Hawkes Bay day. We sat in the outside area, lovely spot. Good range of beer including mid strength beer on tap which is great if your driving. Fries were delicious. Will be heading back for more.

We went to Diva once beautiful sunny Hawke's Bay Friday afternoon. It was brilliant sitting in the sun having a drink. The service was flawless and food choice was great. We had a sharing platter which offered a great range of tasters. A brilliant relaxing afternoon/evening.

Out of towners. Dropped in with friends. Service with a smile. Good local venue. Lovely to sit in the sun. Would go again.

We visited this restaurant for a nice dinner out being visitors to Havelock North. The building was located right in the heart of the village. We both were escorted to a nice table and we ordered a main meal each. The fish dish my wife received was cold... absolutely cold! It had been cooked at some stage but was cold.... More

We had made a booking for Saturday night and were promptly seated. Gladys our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. We shared a bowl of nuts which was very tasty. We both had a steak dish, so chose a Syrah to go with it on Gladys recommendation. My scotch fillet was lovely, nicely cooked and the husband's steak done on... More

My husband and I chose Diva to have a glass of wine to unwind after our work for the day. The atomosphere was warm and inviting we could choose either to sit inside or outside on the pavement and join which seemed a popular choice with the locals. Dog Point Pinot Noir @ $16.00 per glass was a great choice.... More

Can't fault anything about this restaurant. The food was lovely. The soft shell crab entree was excellent and the fish was also perfect. A great experience.

Called in on Friday night on a whim for a few drinks. Had the Lamb and some FAWK plates. Everything was delicious. Good atmosphere too. Would definitely return. I saw some poor reviews here so was hesitant, but turns out the place has new owner operators since March 2015.

I like the location of Divas in Havelock North. You can sit out on the sidewalk when the weather is permitting and they have a nice big bar (if you want to drink). Went for Mothers day, and was very underwhelmed. The menu was essentially a Brunch - with a couple of lunch items. I chose the Chicken Caesar salad.... More

Our first time to Diva - certainly wont be our last. We all had monk fish which was superbly cooked and presented. Couldn't resist the apple pie dessert - our waitress advised there was a 15 minute wait as the pies were
