This place is barmy, set on the edge of a mile high escarpment, and that feature is a result of tectonic activity, which still happens, so if dining here be prepared to run like hell if the tables start shaking! Of course the view is...More

Beautiful views but sadly let down by quality of high tea. We waited 30 minutes for our high tea to arrive. Sadly not a scone in sight and I would argue as to exactly how much was homemade. For what we paid I do not...More

We breezed into The Peak with friends on a saturday night to try the degustation menu that was on offer.. What a meal the dishes were imaginative and fresh with a lean towards seafood which was a surprise as we are in winter but still...More

The best thing going for this restaurant is the view. It does have amazing views of the Hawke's Bay Area. But that is all. The service is incredibly slow even when there are not many people there. After we were seated, it took us 20...More
