“Fabulous food. Front of house attitude not so fab.”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Delicious and innovative food and a charming and professional waitress. Unfortunately the occasion was spoilt by the owner/manager's condescending and dismissive manner.

“Boutique Spanish dining!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Deliciosa is definitely on the top of my to-do list for mid-week and casual Saturday dining. The super friendly staff, especially Kim and owner Sarah are always more than accommodating for our wee puppy who hates to be left at home. Warm and cosy in the winter and the best place to be on the bean bags in the sun in the summer with a glass of vino. My faves are the shredded lamb with israeli cous cous and duck burrito bites, Rod McDonalds one off pinot noir is pretty special too!

“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.
