Had dinner here and was very pleased with my choice of location. The wine selection represented the region well and the food was very nicely assembled. The waitress, Alyson, was helpful and attentive. Definitely a place to revisit.

Nice place to stop for a warm fire and some decent food. Not a bad selection on tap if you don't mind the big breweries. Friendly and attentive service.

Sitting outside early evening on an amazing Thursday spring evening on the deck of The Gin Trap was a real welcome to Napier for us. The staff were very welcoming as well, as we enjoyed a wine looking out at the boats.

Popped in for lunch and had a fabulous time. Really friendly service and the food menu is quite interesting. Opted for the vegetarian pizza on a GF base and it was divine! The pasta special looked lovely too.
