Thanks we thoroughly enjoyed celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary at Verde restaurant. We've been living in Napier for almost as long as we've been married yet never eaten at Church Rd. Will definitely visit again soon.

The food was quite bland compared to when I last visited about a year ago. We felt there had been a change of chef as it used to be one of our fav winery restaurants. It was very expensive given the food wasn’t special.

Had such a lovely afternoon, and Darryl who conducted our wine tasting was awesome! His knowledge was exceptional, as was his patience to answer our many questions! We loved the thought that went into our platter (beautiful ceviche), and our kids declared Church Road the best HB restaurant after finding lolly teeth in their sundaes - we agreed with them, but for different reasons :)

Good wine, great ambience and location. Great service, with a smile. Food is not badl, we felt perhaps the menu and the food that we had could be improved somewhat.

Mitch knows his company/wine. Atmosphere is excellent. Food is very good. Probably there is small room to improve.

Our meals were very nice thankyou and the service was excellent. Just one minor hiccup with my dessert in that the biscuit/biscotti was like concrete.

All of our party of six were disappointed in their meals. We felt there was a very limited selection for lunch and was expensive.

We were expecting good things but were very disappointed. Service was very slow Food was under cooked especially the Lamb which was practically Rare. We waited to pay the bill for 15-20 minutes whilst the staff member was making coffee's. Definitly will not be back.

We really enjoyed our lunch and the service was great. I can’t remember her name but your staff member that came from the Hastings Golf Club is just fantastic. She is so good at her job - a real asset to Church Rd.
