3 people from my family chose to have the $85 pp shared menu. This did not disappoint ! The service in the restaurant was fantastic. The ambience and setting of the restaurant was excellent with great views over the garden, lake and vines. The food...was delicious. Each course arrived and was described by the server. The combinations of locally sourced produce and delicate flavours were perfect. The wine was good too. All in all a stand out of a visit to Hawkes Bay Region. My family would agree !More

This was a very special and memorable evening thanks to the beautiful food, perfect service and amazing venue. We had the shared menu which was varied, looked beautiful and tasted delicious. The service was engaging and attentive. All the staff worked together to make our...experience perfect. My wife is gluten and Dairy intolerant and the restaurant catered to this without fuss or bother. We can’t wait to return. Thank you Craggy Range.More

wonderful meal, service. We had the shared meal option. All very nice. Accommodated a change due to immune issue very willingly. Really can't fault experience. Best meal out we've had for a long time. Loved the panna cotta dessert with accompaniments. Will definitely return when...next in town.More

Amazing food and wine and friendly, knowledgeable staff. The food presentation is superb and the taste is also. Good selection of local produce. It’s easy to see why Craggy Range is rated the best restaurant in Havelock North. A truly wonderful dining experience.

Our family of 9 ate lunch here on a cold December day. The restaurant was lovely and warm. Amelia, our wait person looked after us so well, keeping our water glasses topped up and us well informed. The restaurant has an excellent children's menu, with...their food coming out promptly. We chose the tasting menu amongst the 6 of us and the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The serving sizes wore so generous we didn't finish it all. We certainly couldn't fault this wonderful restaurant and definitely worth visiting.More

We have lunched at about 10 of Hawkes Bay vineyard restaurants but Craggy Range is by far the best. Midweek on a not so wonderful day and still we had to book. The restaurant quietly filled and we were fortunate to have a window table...overlooking the vines. We choose the $75/pp shared meal menu of 8 courses. The food reflected real care and attention to detail by top chefs – could not be faulted. Certainly well-recommended and a must included should you visit Hawkes Bay.More
