“Great Place”
Reviewed 30 August 2014

Visited on the 22nd of August for dinner as a birthday celebration for a friend. Great service and friendly attentive staff. I ordered the Scotch filet which was cooked as I asked - medium rare and delicious and I had the sticky date pudding for dessert which was also delicious. There was live music playing which makes for a great atmosphere. Definitely recommend Crab Farm if you are after a relaxed dining experience in a quirky setting.

“A lucky find”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place on the way to Napier. Luckily they fitted us in as it was busy. The food was very tasty and the wine smashing. Very reasonably priced too.

“Disappointed on first visit”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

We had heard great things about this winery.
Extremely disappointed in the service. Waited a long time to have order taken then on receipt of the platter felt for $44 we were well and truly over charged for what we received. I would have loved to have tried a dessert as I was still hungry however waiting staff never offered dessert or coffee to finish the meal. On a positive note loved the wine we had.
I will not be in a hurry to try again.

“Delicious wine, friendly staff and chilled atmosphere”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Glad we stumbled upon this place. So chilled out, the staff are super chatty and friendly. We got to try each wine on the list for free and ended up buying a couple of bottles.
