This used to be a great place to eat but last nights dinner and service was a true disappointment. There were times we had to clear the table ourselves, each time we got our dishes we were given the wrong meal and it took forever for any of the 4-5 staff on to even attend to us for anything else,...

We had been for a drive up Te Mata peak whilst on holiday and decided it was time for lunch whilst in Havelock North when we saw Diva Bistro as we were looking for a suitable place, so we thought we would give it a go. The waitress was quick to seat us, and get us a round of drinks.... More

This was a great meeting place. Not sure why it has become so tired. It would be great if this excellent location could revamp and get back to its times of old.

Stopped in for a quick lunch in the sunshine on the way to the beach. Didn't expect it to take 90 minutes and three requests before our meals arrived! Very frustrating to be told after an hour that someone else got our meals-just as well we chased up a third time otherwise we would have been waiting all afternoon! When... More

Dropped in for a drink on a Friday afternoon. We were the only customers. A friendly welcome by the bar person. A good selection of tap beers & wine by the glass. We ordered a bowl of fries to go with our second round of drinks. Lovely light & crispy fries, well presented & accompanied by a nice garlic aoli.... More

Having have good mid week experience at Diva, took wife for meal on a weekend. No way busy, but slow service, rare steak was medium and rest of meal cool/cold. My wife's meal was undercooked and had to go back. Disappointing. Let us see if the desert is any better???

We were given a friendly greeting by the staff when we arrived and given a choice of where to sit. The service was good and the food was excellent. We both... More

We tried Diva because of a deal we found on grab one. When I went to book however, the gentleman I spoke to seemed confused about the voucher that I just purchased the day before, telling me the grab one purchase had ended. He told however that of course he would honour vouchers. The grab one voucher got us two... More
