Reviewed 29 June 2014

Everything about our experience was perfect. A pleasant evening that ticks all the boxes, lovely owner operated establishment with friendly, knowledgable & professional staff. The small plates are a treat & really good value, a nice way to try many delicious dishes. Love the wine by the taste option too. Thanks so much, will definitely be coming again & recommending to all.

“Lovely place to eat”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

This restaurant is charming inside, a blend of European rustic charm with fine dining. It is a nice space with great aesthetic and good lighting. The staff are wonderful, helpful, friendly, charming. The food is very good, well cooked, well paired, perhaps just shy of being as excellent as the prices would dictate. The wine list is well picked and not expensive. The only thing to know in advance is don't go there ravenously hungry, as the 'small plates' are entree size and you will need to spend $50 plus to fill up if you're starving, otherwise, delightful all round.

“Wellingtonian on holiday”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

If you're in the area, definitely visit Delissi, it was the best meal of our holiday. The food was equally, if not better than anything I've had in Wellington, and the service were amazing. We were advised to have four small plates between the two of us, followed by desserts, and this was the perfect amount of food. Each plate was tasty and perfectly seasoned. We tried the Singapore noodles, Eye Fillet, Fish de jour and pork belly, but would been happy with any of the items on the menu. The dessert was also a highlight. My companion was literally licking the last of his crème brûlée from the dish, and my lemon meringue pie was to die for.
Compliments to our hosts Helen and Darren, Delissi is a must if you are in the area.

“Took my two teenagers for a quite mid week meal- yum”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I had dinner with my two teenage children this week. The concept of small plates is wonderful, reasonable priced and really tasty. I had a chicken on a kumera & Choriza base with this really tasty jus. My son had the fillet steak which was cooked to prefection and then he had the salmon which was just as good. My daughter is vegetarian and there was a good selection for her too, she ended up with a noodle dish that she loved. We all had desert with my daughter having two.
The cuisine was as good as any 5 star restaurant in town and I will definately be returning to try the pork belly

“EXCEPTIONAL FOOD”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

We were attending a funeral a couple of months back and ended up at Delissi's for dinner. The tapas style food was scrumptious! Every morsel was delicious. The staff were great, and bent over backwards to accommodate us - including our two children. We felt the prices were preety cheap too - they deserve to charge more.

You have to go here if you are staying at Mount Maunganui!
