Hubby and I went here on a busy Friday night during a bad thunderstorm and after a grueling drive up from Wellington. We didn't have a reservation, but we were willing to wait.

Stopped in here for a bit of lunch while travelling around the Hawkes bay region. This place is great! Very classy feel to it, with plenty of outdoor seating looking out on to an orchard. Extremely friendly and knowledgable wait staff, massive wine list with loads of local varietals. I just got a burger for lunch, but golly, what a... More

Fantastic midweek treat today at Off The Track. A beautiful day here in the Bay so we could sit outside and enjoy the surroundings. Excellent service, beautiful Wednesday Roast Pork and Pavlova special - can't wait to go back!

I find the meals here huge. They are always flavorsome and fresh. There is a playground for younger children to entertain themselves while you sit back and enjoy a glass of wine whilst watching them. Affordable prices too.
