Description: Deliciosa Tapas & Wine combines Mediterranean-styled tapas dining with the finest Hawke's Bay produce and an extensive local & international wine & beverage list. Deliciosa offers an intimate & rustic ambience and a commitment to quality food and wines/craft beers. Come in and try our signature dishes and marvel over our stunning array of wines while enjoying the vibrant atmosphere of our covered and candlelit outdoor patio. At Deliciosa the focus is on fun, flavour, family and flourish. Tapas is a style of eating - a long, slow, grazing process of smaller really tasty plates for everyone to share.

“Best Ever”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Yet again we have had the best time at Deliciosa. So much fun and great food. An easy way to have a fun night. A busy Saturday night and myself & 2 friends loved it. Kim looked after us and she is just the best. Nothing is ever too much trouble. We have been as a family, as a couple and as a team of girls wanting at good night out. Each occasion we were treated to great food. Try the risotto balls,they are amazing. The mezze plate is yummy with the best flat bread, and the pate is always brilliant, and try the beef & duck....just too good. The wine is the best in Hawkes Bay and well priced. You will not regret going to Deliciosa, but book so you don't miss out on a table and the fun night out. A must do in Havelock North.

“Couldn't have been better!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We booked for 12 - and we left Delicosa to come up with the menu for us - couldn't have worked out better; lovely food, great service, and very relaxing evening;
We were well looked after - and would certainly recommend - the restaurant was busy with couples, family groups etc - great atmosphere - buzzing place
I liked the fact that the table was ready for us - we had an indoor table, we weren't rushed and the food above all was as fabulous as ever!
Do book ahead so you aren't disappointed - this restaurant is one of the best in Havelock North

“Loved it!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

My family and I are regulars at this quaint tapas bar. It's the best restaurant in the Hawkes Bay. The service is absolutely fantastic. We highly recommend the calamari, pork belly, wagyu beef and duck breast. It gets busy in the weekends so be sure to book ahead. The atmosphere is warm, romantic if you're out on a date or just a nice place to take people from out of town. You won't be disappointed!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

One of Hawkes Bays best, great food huge helpings for "tapas". Crew are full on and professional. They have a good selection of wine but more importantly great selection craft biers for a small venue.

“....”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

We visit Deliciosa in April 2014 ... I loved the food even though we know tapas differently from Europe. I read through the last reviews of Deliciosa and we can agree that the food is fabulous and lovely wines were on offer. However, we can also agree that the English waitress was very short, snappy and did not pay any attention to detail. Disappointing! Therefore, an American lady was lovely, funny and up to speed.
