Elephant Hill was the highlight of our bicycle wine tour. Dinner was excellent but our favorite was the oysters served chilled and fried. Search for “GoPro: Stunning Honeymoon in Hawaii and New Zealand 2018 - HD 2K” in YouTube for more clips of the place.

A short ride from Napier with a wonderful setting, great service and excellent food - pretty good combination. Wine tasting is not the reason to go here; you go for a relaxing and wonderful eating experience. Wine is good, but the food, service and experience...More
