Great dinner, wine list and friendly service. The fish of the day was fresh and cooked prefect. The NZ wine list is also outstanding! Will be back!

We called in for lunch and had delicious, fresh salads. The staff are friendly and efficient and the venue has very high ceilings and lots of space around the tables. There is also a good wine and beer list.

The first waitress who approached us to take drinks order didn't speak English!!!! We asked for a lemon, lime and bitters and she had no idea what we meant. Seeming very confused she just wandered off and never came back. We managed to get another member of staff who was far more helpful (and spoke English) and things improved from... More

It was sheer serendipity that we found this place. The food was absolutely great: the husband had the Blue Nose fish, I had the pork belly, both of which were outstanding. To say, the service was excellent, is to do a disservice to the young man who served us. He was top-notch, knowledgeable and watching us all the time to... More

We came here for a late light lunch on a Sunday, and were lucky to get in as we hadn't made any reservations. We were seated at an outside table with lovely views over the harbour. There was an excellent menu with lots of seafood on it -yummy! There was an extensive wine list and local beers (much appreciated by... More

We stopped in for dinner 12/24/16 and discovered a lively, fun restaurant with friendly, knowledgeable servers, a varied menu, excellent food at fair prices. Great wine list with lots of local wins and huge bar. Lots of TVs. Fun spot. Give it a try.

Arrived on time. Our guest who invited us were running late. The staff were fantastic as we were cautious of mucking them around. Local beers were recommended and enjoyed and the staff were fantastic. Did I say that already. Saturday night. Not too busy and we were last to leave. The pan fried snapper was fantastic and lemon meringue the... More

We had dinner here as a family during a short stay in Napier; we ordered garlic bread for starters (yummy garlic pizza drenched in garlic butter), and I had the duck parcels as well as the oysters. The duck was tender and full of flavour, enclosed in four delicate wrappings. Oysters were delicious as always. Kids and hubby then had... More

For great value fresh food and fine wine list "The Shed" is a popular venue in an informal setting. The Italian wood-fired pizzas are famous in the Bay, and with great platters for sharing, the taste buds are sure to be tantalised. (Try the Caution Dining Lounge for a more intimate night out!!!)

A huge open fire is a spectacular site on winter nights, however in summer with a massive deck to enjoy the vista of the inner harbour and the Ruahine Mountain ranges, the sunset is stunning and not to be missed.
The craft beer menu has 21 interesting and premium beers on tap and the wine list is a showcase of Hawkes Bays finest.
