Hi, this is a unique restaurant because it is all about gathering with friends and enjoying good food and great wines while enjoying tapas and sharing with your group. The dishes are scrumptious and varied in flavours. Wonderful to sit outside on a warm evening and have the food keep on coming as you sample a few of the menu... More

Walked in on a busy night with no reservation and were seated immediately by a really lovely server who looked after us the rest of the night. While the meal did take a while to come out, we didn't mind as the atmosphere was very relaxed and the food was excellent and really worth the wait. Highly recommend the cauliflower... More

We visit NZ twice a year, love the country, people and great food. First are at Deliciosa in Feb 2016. This review is for Nov 2016. Our first meal 7 months ago was very good. Everyone recommended the place to us. This time the food was very sub par. We ordered the squid, which given proximity to ocean, should have... More

We went on a busy night , no reservation and were seated immediately, given water, asked if we`d been previously and had how the menu works explained to us. The drinks and food menu is all on one folder. Suggested you place an order for some things eat and then review and can order more. Drinks ordered and arrived promptly... More

This place was recommended by our niece and her husband and as we were visiting the town, we decided to check it out. We rang for a reservation and got the last table available. We were very lucky as the tapas were absolutely amazing. Simply beautiful meal, fantastic service. We were well looked after, right through to desert, which looked... More

Deliciosa lives up to its name in spades...dozens of beautifully made dishes that at are small enough to allow you to order a few for each person...though this can rapidly add up to an expensive bill. The wine list is very good with some lovely Syrahs suitable for the rich culinary ingredients. The staff are lovely and friendly and Sarah,... More

I was brought here by a local hotelier and was not disappointed. The mussels were enormous with a fabulous sauce, the chorizo dish was well dressed and I finished every bite, and the pork belly was a bit too crispy (think asian) but had great flavor. Great wine list, local and imported both paired well with the meal. Overall a... More

My partner and I visited Deliciosa recently, with the intention of getting a glass of wine to sit in the sun. We ended up looking through the menu, ordering a handful of tapas off the delicious, flavourful menu and stayed for the next few hours! An amazing wine list means there is always something new to try, and the dishes... More

Dinner recommendation made by our hosts at Craggy Range - very nice. Tried white bait fritters - interesting...Husband really enjoyed seafood chowder. Enjoyed patatas bravas and a ground lamb/hummus dish. Enjoyed with a bottle of The Cypress reserve Syrah and tasty desserts. Yum!
