Good selection of choices on the menu from starters thru to dessert. Our meals came in a timely fashion and had eye appeal as well as beautiful flavours and beautifully prepared dishes. The service is always good and there is always great choices of drinks,...my cocktails were Devine. Thankyou for helping create a memorable night for our 41st wedding anniversaryMore

What a perfect little place! The food was delicate and flavorful, with seatings inside and al fresco; kids have a menu with the same standard of food than adults have. The desserts are to die for; pannacotta with strawberries and apricot sorbet was fresh and...unique.More

The man who met us at the door was quick to come up with a solution when we had 5 people instead of 4. The waitress was passionate about food and knew her dishes. The mocktails and food was tasty. We all really enjoyed our...dining experience.More

Best oysters we’ve ever had. Mains were unreal. Staff were helpful but not overbearing. 10 out 10 recommend! Thanks for an amazing dinner. Will be back next time we are in the bay.

Had the best eggs on toast for super price 12.00. Family had pancakes and eggs Benedict all great value and just that little big extra than the norm 10/10 will be going back as preferred breakfast spot in Havelock.

We had the most amazing meal. Very friendly knowledgeable staff set the evening off to a good start. It was full but had a cracking atmosphere, the loudest sound being the cocktail shaker (bliss!). Every dish from the oysters to the steaks and desserts was...super super tasty. We left very happy and can't wait to return.More

We were a large group of 70 and had a a delicious meal at Malo. The steak option was great and cooked perfectly, beef cheeks to start were delicious. The panna cotta was superb, my partner chose the chocolate option for dessert- not so great....Friendly wait staff who worked hard under pressure.More

Malo is a good choice when visiting Hastings area. Modern restaurant and cuisine. We had a good experience with the bar staff and a few nice cocktails before dinner. Food was of a high standard and an excellent wine match suggested by the wait staff.
