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.

Landmark atop phoenix island on the eastern coast of jeju island. One of a kind architecture that add energy to the natural lookout, MINT serves fusion korean taste that is hard to find elsewhere on the island. High recommend for a chill out after a casual hiking along the seashore !

Upon arrival, we were shown to our table which was upstairs and with a view out over the water and towards Cape Kidnappers, perfect as the light bounced across from the sunset. We shared a starter and entree which were both very... More

On my own for one night in Napier I decided to avoid the usual town haunts and found this place. I was extremely well looked after with delicous food and wine in classy surroundings. Prosciutto, melon and feta salad starter and pomegranate marinated lamb rump main, the fact that I can remember in detail says it all! Quiet attentive service... More

Our party of four seniors enjoyed beef, fish, duck and vegetarian main dishes, as well as starters and deserts, all of which were nicely cooked and with careful attention to details in presentations. Once again delivered an excellent dining occasion and recommended.
