Opening Information

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.

A vegetarian option in the entrees would be good - and at least 2 vegetarian mains. But otherwise food and location great

Another fantastic dinner at Craggy Range. Will, Elliot and the team looked after us superbly; the new menu had even more delicious dishes on it and our special family night out with seven of us was a total success! We'll be back... again and again... Cheers Peter and Paul

What an amazing experience we had, dining at Craggy Range is always so special and we felt that the experience has heightened even more since we last visited. Rose made us feel very comfortable and was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was delicious, so well balanced and portions were perfect. The wine was also amazing. We would certainly recommend Craggy Range restaurant and in my view was very good value for money. Thank you

Amazingly though we have lived in the Bay for six years, this was our first time at CR. Everything was excellent and we felt the shared degustation menu was very good value for money. Will definitely be back again soon!

We had an incredible night at Craggy Range restaurant. The atmosphere is divine and the short rib and gurnard were delicious! Special thanks to Will, who provided us with an unbeatable service. May his girlfriend have as nice a time on her "birthday month" as we had last night.

Craggy is always a treat but the chef's menu is an experience! Loved the quality and generosity of the meal, with a wide variety of tastes and the freshest of produce. Our server Jacob was accommodating of our table's enthusiasm - and also of the fact we had two kids with us, who also loved it! Looking forward to another visit soon.

Great service, food was nice, we did find it a tad salty. Next time will request a table by the window to make the most of the view.
