Craggy Range Restaurant offers a warm and memorable experience, looking out on the spectacular backdrop of Te Mata Peak. We are fortunate to be located in Hawke’s Bay; home to some of New Zealand’s finest produce, and we are passionate about sourcing the best local produce from selected suppliers with whom we collaborate closely. Seasonality is a key focus for us, with many of our fruit and vegetables grown in our extensive kitchen garden. Our Head Chef Casey McDonald has worked in Michelin-star restaurants worldwide, and brings with him a dedication to quality of ingredients and simplicity of flavour. Evolution, confidence, quality and humility guide our menu and style of service. We are open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday in winter, and seven days a week in summer, and our bar offers light snacks and flights of wine throughout the day.

Extremely disappointed could'nt eat meal outside with perfect view of Te Mata peak, apparantly not allowed any more only drink, nibbles and deserts outside, stunning day 22 degrees no wind, I've been coming for 20 years, just for the view, really cant understand the logic, meal was fantastic as always but i come for the experience
We had a great evening the restaurant definitely delivers !
Great location, great food and great service - we will be back again!
The lamb shoulder is highly recommended and the complimentary bread was amazing !
The food and service was excellent. When we go out for a meal it's not only the food which we crtic but it's the atmosphere and level of service and all was five star standard and quite honesty the best we have experienced since the 10 years we have been in New Zealand Thank you Craggy Range
