Went here for both lunch and dinner in one day. Was pleasantly surprised at the menu, great variety of dishes, reasonable prices and great service. The sea views are a bonus and there is plenty of parking. Will be back. .

We booked a table next to the window, overlooking Hawke's Bay. So rare in a restaurant with a view - great food, reasonable prices and outstanding service. A special start the new year, hope to return Jan 1 2018.

Great lunch. Our lunch was lovely and fresh and the service was great with the added benefit of a wonderful view and setting. We would definitely recommend this restaurant for lunch. The only thing that spoiled our lunch was the table next to us with 3 screaming children, and yes they were screaming. Yes this is the parents problem but... More

Should have left when we asked the server for a table and menus and she looked like we were an inconvenience. The food was good but did not hang around to wait for the coffee which was still was not ready despite ordering before the food. Even paying the bill seemed like an interruption to the staff. It's a shame... More

Great for a pint. We stopped in by chance after doing the lookout walk. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Excellent view- even in inclement weather.

Had a lovely dinner this evening at Boardwalk Restaurant in Napier. We didn't book a table but one was made available to us as we were dining early. Our grandson was with us and needed a highchair, nothing was too much trouble when it came to accommodate him. Drinks served quickly to the table. Our entree was also delivered together.... More

We decided to try this place before heading home after our weekend away. We were warned initially of a 40min wait for food. We sat down and the waiter then told us to consider ordering quickly as two large groups had just turned up. Was really nice of them to warn us. We ordered and only had to wait maybe... More

Location is great with views out over the ocean and having passed this place on many occasions thought it looked good. We were basically ignored from the minute we walked in. After about 20 minutes of sting waiting we went in and asked for menus and were told someone would be with us soon to take our order - no... More
