I've only been here for pizza and beers, but I would definitely go back. Pizza was awesome, a tad expensive, but you get what you pay for, nice vibe and a nice area to sink a couple and have some grub. Happy.

My partner and I recently had an evening out here. The Emporium has an awesome vibe. We heard a lot of good things from locals and many recommendations on what to order, so in the end we got a whole load of plate. The Salmon tortellini and Beef Rendang were so good. Having been to Indonesia recently we were very... More

We dropped in on spec, and after a 20 minute wait got our table. I had the Chicken in red Thai sauce meal. Husband had Pizza. Both meals very tasty. Bit of a wait for them to arrive, but worth it. Very good service.

We had breakfast here three mornings as well as one dinner, and some cocktails. The food was absolutely excellent (possibly the best pizza I've ever had), cocktails were great and service couldn't be faulted. It also has a fantastic atmosphere and the decor is brilliant.

Went in with a coworker in from overseas wanting to show him and his partner a great Hawkes Bay experience and we were NOT disappointed. Great, friendly staff. My filet was cooked perfectly and the béarnaise sauce was completely rediculous. Also the fish and chips were spot on as well as the nice Asian fusion chicken dish. Bangin! Love the... More

We were meeting up with a local who we had not seen for many years when she lived in London and travelled Europe. The Emporium in Tennyson Street was the venue, within the Masonic Hotel, I believe.
