Have dined at numbers of 'rated' restaurants in the Napier/Hastings area and been pleasantly delighted at many of them. So how did the this restaurant slip by us in the past?. Tonight we encountered wonderful service that set us at ease on entry to the restaurant..as did the pleasant ambience of the restaurants music and table seating. Professional service, with genuine smiles and banter, went a long way in providing an expectation that would have been difficult to live up to if the meal did not come up to the same expectation. we were not disappointed. The shared entrée platter was superb....a delight of differing textures and tastes that had the taste buds tingling for more. The mains, hapuka fish for Anne and pork belly with a suttle mustard mash for me, were 'melt in your mouth' dishes that we have rarely encountered elsewhere...if at all. Sileni wine just added to the experience. Having to set aside the thought of desert as we had 'supped our fill' we were pleasantly surprised when the maître d presented us with a desert for two...now that is great service. We will certainly be recommending and revisiting this restaurant....sooner than later.... to sample other items on their menu.
