Only stopped in for a gin and tonic so never had any food. Very nice large bar eaterie. Situated right next to the harbour it was a perfect setting to sit and sip a Monkey 47 and tonic In the sun. Heaven.

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.
