Was one of our favourite restaurants in Havelock North but sorry to say the service and meals have gone backwards since a change of ownership. Left waiting too long for order to be taken and then too long for food. This on a night when the kitchen was quiet - we were sitting alongside so could see clearly. Also could... More

We ordered entrees for our mains which were generous sizes. However, my Crisp Pork Belly looked more like the pork strips from the butcher and the skin was not crunchy crackling. The beans with almonds were nice and crispy and the root veges were tasty too. The Duck Fat Potatoes would have been nicer if crispy. We waited a while... More

Probably the best food we have tasted in the Hawkes Bay area. The meal was first class as was the service. I definately will dine there again.

The food was good although my husband's steak was a bit chewy. My chicken was fine. The serving staff were pleasant and it not their fault that the service was shocking.To run an upmarket restaurant one needs to invest in better staff training. I would suggest that they visit the Mission to see how it is done. I had to... More

Called here without reservation for a meal. Not too busy being a Sunday and only 6 pm. No problem seating by the large open doors on a lovely warm evening. Choice of 5 main courses we went for a scotch fillet and salmon fish of the day. Both were delicious. We had two works of art for pudding which also... More

We noticed diva was telling every one that they were open late on the holiday weekend, however when we arrived for dinner at 730 pm (hardly late) we were informed they had just closed ! Sadly we won't come back and waist our time again !
