I visited this restaurant twice in one week. The first I visited with a friend I thought "nice views, not bad food at not bad prices, pity about the customer service". I thought this might be a one off so suggested to another friend we would try it. Again, service was poor (minus one staff member who was pretty good).... More

We drove along and bumped into this place and we had great food with quick delivery of the food. The food was very yummy and at affordable prices. The staff were friendly but could have been more attentive. I would returned to the place especially to have a great view whilst eating.

Great steak and desserts. Ideal for taking the family at lunchtime or for dinner. One minus point, said they were open late but when we went before nine pm they said the kitchen was closed so check this out.

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
