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.

Whilst the food and the location are expected to be superb it was the wait staff that lifted my most recent experience to extra ordinary. Knowledgeable, accomodating and genuine, her service was just delightful, adding significantly to the total experience.
We had a wonderful meal and wine Along with exceptional service today at Craggy Range. We were told that it was a must do on our visit to the North Island and we are so happy we made time to go!
We had the ‘Hawkes Bay’ menu - it was fabulous and excellent value for money given the high quality. We unfortunately were told we could not able to have the booth table we requested even though that table was vacant for our entire visit, and the alternative table promised by the window also did not eventuate for some reason. A small disappointment but the meal was still very enjoyable.
Food was very good and location is lovely. The pacing of the tasting menu was a bit rushed for us.
Amazing location, venue, service and food outstanding a must do.
