Restaurant

The elegantly restored historic seminary building provides a stunning location for the unique, award-winning Mission Restaurant.

Offering elegant, classic surroundings, magnificent views, world class cuisine and wines combined with the stunning vineyard location makes Mission Restaurant one of Hawke’s Bays premier venues.

Nestled in the Taradale hills, diners at the Mission Estate Restaurant enjoy sweeping views of Napier city and the coast beyond.

Beautiful by day and spectacular by night, the vista is unparalleled in Hawke’s Bay.

The outdoor dining terrace is drenched in summer sun while the indoor restaurant spaces have been cleverly designed to provide intimate dining.

With only the freshest local produce used, the style of cuisine is contemporary fine dining with a European influence.

Excellent service, quality seasonal produce and award-winning wines combine to create a memorable experience.

The waiting staff are trained to provide the best wine match for each dish.

We offer a children’s menu for 12 years and under. Available to view with the Set Menus.

Visitors are encouraged to wander through the beautifully manicured gardens and soak up the ambiance of the estate.
