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.

Wonderful service, fantastic food and stunning wines.
everything was wonderful ,although the only gripe I would have is that the food was not kept hot on the plates for the main course .Other wise I thought it was the nicest place to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary. Our (anniversary) cake was plated just beautifully for our friends to enjoy too.
As always fantastic food, atmosphere and the most professional staff. Always a delight to dine at your restaurant. Well done team you should all be very proud of yourselves.
I would highly recommend Craggy Range it was top class

We had an amazing night, thank you. Beautiful food, wonderful service. Kate J was amazing. Reduced stars for a minor detail on value for money on wine prices.
Outstanding in every way. One of our nicest dining experiences ever. Faultless.
Great to see the restaurant so busy. We had a lovely meal and the service was exceptional.
My partner and I went to the restaurant last night and had the chefs menu. So delicious! All the food was exceptional, and we had the best butter, potatoes and halloumi of our lives. Our server Kate made the evening so wonderful - super friendly, informative, and so helpful - we asked for tips about what to do in Hawkes Bay and she wrote us a list to take with us. Above and beyond service - thank you!
A stunning venue which we have enjoyed on many occasions. Excellent food, wine and staff. A very special gem in HB.
