Wonderful food that was served with grace and style. Great wine list highlighting local wines. All food sourced locally and cooked to perfection. Relaxing intimate restaurant with attentive but discreet staff. Thank you for a lovely evening.

“a mint place in the 6 sisters”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Napier is definitely improving for us foodies if Mint is anything to go by.
visiting the inlaws we always try and get one evening where we go out and spoil ourselves and Mint did not disappoint.
The food, wine, service and location are excellent, myself and my wife enjoyed a really sumptuous romantic meal at Mint and will be going back.

“Mint - top notch meal and service”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

A very pleasant meal at Mint with business colleagues. The food was top notch, and very nicely presented. The menu choice was good. The service was attentive, but unobtrusive. I really enjoyed the main course of lamb - very nicely done and presented. All up a high quality experience. Recommended.

“A Mint evening in Winter”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

A winter's evening and we decided to dine at Mint. The reviews didn't disappoint. The service was great, not too much, just right. The food was excellent, and an adequate serve size. Tasty and as described on the menu. Dessert was also great, we had bread & butter pudding. Just what I needed!
It wasn't a busy night, so we received great service. The background music was okay (Cat Stevens greatest hits to start us off), but disappointed that the open fires weren't going, as this would have really added to the atmosphere.
Still, we would come back again.
