About Pacifica Restaurant

Owner operators Jeremy Rameka & Natalie Bulmman hope to welcome you to Pacifica Restaurant, we offer Degustation dining ONLY. We have two 5 course set menu options- one 'Seafood' focused, the other 'Mixed' meat/offal forward. Menus are always set at 5 courses with content changing on a daily basis, price is set at $70pp or $120pp with optional wine pairing. We have a modest locally driven drinks list with wines by the glass or bottle, otherwise if you'd rather bring something special of your own, we offer BYO at $30 per bottle.
Apologies but we do not offer A La Carte, nor do we cater to vegetarian or vegan dining; we can accommodate SOME dietary requirements upon request.
We hope to share with you considered, genuine hospitality in an intimate setting, all are welcome but our menu design encourages trust in Chef Jeremy Rameka.
Jeremy's intent is to use ingredients with respect & retain the integrity of produce; he believes that "there is a soul essence to cooking, just like music, food plays the best note when sung from the heart." In short, a lot of love goes into what we do here, and we hope to share that with some of you, for a bespoke dining occasion to remember.
We encourage our guests to book online, but for last minute reservations, group bookings, private functions, general or dietary inquiries please call Natalie direct at 068336335.

Everything was fab. Went for our 25th wedding anniversary. Good communication from booking till arrival. Our waitress was excellent and engaging throughout. Went with the wine pairing option which complemented the diverse menu.

We thought the meal was excellent, the variety and progression of taste and complexity was particularly good - from briny to umami and onwards... - marvellous. Thankyou!! Definitely a highlight of our visit to the region.

I ate at Pacifica years ago and have been intending to get back ever since. I was finally in Napier again recently so took my chance. Had an amazing night. Fabulous food, matched perfectly with interesting wines and top notch service. I definitely won't leave it as long to head back next time.

A really lovely evening to kick off our wine group's weekend. Food and matching wines in the degustation to die for. Staff really helpful and accommodating as one of our group needed urgent medical attention and had to miss out last minute. They delayed our meal to help us. Couldn't be bettered. Look forward to coming again.

I’m from a seafood west coast NZ background. The food was nice but nothing exceptional from a native fresh local perspective. As far as the wine match I would have expected more knowledge from the staff rather than reading a label, especially the local wines? A nice experience but not one I’d would cue up for.

It’s was awesome the first time we went and just as awesome again last night. 5 bowls of beautiful food with 5 glasses of lovely wine. Such a treat worth a trip to Napier just to try it.

Loved how they catered for my 7 year old daughter. She was allowed to pick and chose a few dishes of the menu. The food was well presented, and taste (with all those different flavors), wow stunning. Chefs did an amazing job. Front staff was super friendly, which added to a perfect evening.
