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.

Mission Restaurant is undergoing extensive refurbishments over the winter months.

Commencing 6th July, through to mid September, the restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner Friday, Saturday and Sunday only and our capacity is limited, so bookings are essential.

Our team are manning the phones between 10.00am and 2.00pm daily and emails will be monitored throughout.

 

If you have a special occasion, we will also host a lunch or dinner for 15 persons or more Monday-Thursday, by arrangement.


We also continue to offer freshly prepared meals and wine for onsite collection or delivery to Taradale & Napier. Takeaway orders are by phone
06 845 9354, delivering 5pm-8pm and 11.30am-2pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

TAKEAWAY MENU- WINTER – JULY 2020

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.

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