This restaurant is white table clothed and romantic. We ordered the stuffed gnocchi for appetizer and it was delicious. For main, we had the lamb and lemon fish. Both were fantastic! Great food and beautiful atmosphere.

Mint Restaurant serves good food with quality ingredients, well cooked and well presented. The quality of the dishes with mains under $30 and entrees/sweets around $15 means it is very good value. A nice place for a pleasant meal - you won't be disappointed.

We had a beautiful three course meal at Mint. The food was delicious and the chef made sure there was sufficient time between each course. I will definitely return here when next in Napier.

We thought we would treat ourselves to a top-notch fine dining experience. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. We felt the food did not match the rating given, in comparison with other fine dining establishments locally and beyond, and restaurants of a lesser rating on this website....More

This restaurant is frequented by locals for special occasions. The food preparation and presentation are outstanding, MINT Restaurant provides a memorable dining experience and it is highly recommended. Be sure to make reservations and ask for a table by the front window.

Hi I'm calling from the UK, my sister and her husband live in Hawkes Bay and I would like to surprise them with a meal for 2 at the Mint Restaurant sometime in the new year, possibly January,obviously it will be a surprise so actual date would come from my sister when she rings the restaurant. I would like to pay for a full course so please advise on average prices for 2 people and on how I can make a payment from the UK. Thank you
