After a fairly long and very hot and tiring day driving I was looking for a simple but good evening meal. Friends in Napier suggested I join them at the Suntouched. Well, what a nice surprise it was! It is well known locally as a great place for Pizza or Pasta and, while I don't go too much for Pizza I love a good Pasta dish. I chose a Taglietelle to which I just kept saying Yes put some of that in on No I'm not keen on that... Not a problem, they prepared exactly what I asked for, in a yummy cream sauce, in a proper size portion with some lovely bread to mop up........ 'Absolute Bliss' Added to that a lovely crisp Sauvignon Blanc which the 'boss' kindly kept in the fridge for me and just kept topping up my glass without ever needing to ask. I can't remember exactly what the bill came to but, it was a surprise, I would have happily paid double.
I can't comment on the accomodation as I did not stay there but it is a friendy, comfortable and welcoming place, with lots of local custom and, eveyone, both customers and staff make you welcome.
I would not hesitate to call in again.
