To eat here was one of the anticipated highlights of our NZ trip and we were not disappointed. We had a glorious summer evening when we could could sit outside in comfort and enjoy the superb food and a glass of their wine. We went all "fishy" with a bisque, mussels and a main of snapper. The restaurant is not... More

This place is stunning and a superb location for a restaurant. Beautiful building, fabulous history (with the history of the wine and how it came about) and the food is wonderful! Wine tasting, gorgeous wines (local of course) and Mission is a beautiful perfect place for a celebration or wedding (I believe there is a small chapel there too, by... More

We were hosted by our daughter-inlaw's parents to lunch during Art Deco Days in Napier. They rook us to their favorite spot, Mission Restaurant at The MIssion Winery. Elegant setting on a hillside on the western edge of Napier. There are normally tables on the lawn with large umbrellas but due to recent rains, we sat under cover on the... More

Have been here every year during Art Deco weekend for the last 5 years. We keep returning because the location and building are beautiful, the service is genuine and attentive and the food is amazing. By comparison we dined at LoneStar the night before which is a family steak house restaurant (and a good one I might add) but the... More

Had a meal here on art deco weekend. They were really busy but seated us quickly and were quick with our drinks. Here's where the service seemed to end. The food took an age to come out and when it arrives was pretty uninspiring. The crayfish bisque was flat and bland. The calamari indistinguishable from a pub lunch. A shame... More

Went here to celebrate my birthday at the end of December. It's setting is absolutely beautiful. We sat outside and soaked up the scenery. The food was amazing. I had vegetarian starters and main and they were both the best I've ever had!it is a bit expensive but if you have an occasion..it's ideal!

Another amazing night at this iconic Napier restaurant. The service received from our waitress Paige was first class, the dinner exceeded our expectation and the tiramisu finished us all off! The rain didn't dampen our evening one bit, overhead heating and gas burner kept us very cosy, and our son and his fiancée loved the wine.

The atmosphere is idyllic, sitting on the patio enjoying a glass of wine while we are being served by a very patient professional waiter. Food cooked exquisitely to perfection. Certainly a favourite place to take our visitors to. We took family members who were previously restaurateurs who gave The Mission the definite thumbs up for experience and satisfaction.

Thank pathberow
