We had a fantastic experience at the Loading Ramp. They fussed over us as though we were their most important customers even though they were very busy. We have already recommended them and First Table to many people. We look forward to dining there again. 5 star+

Girls night out dinner and honestly I didn't have high expectations since I have been to the loading ramp quite a few times, but only to drink.

I was however super impressed with the menu, food and service. Our server was attentive and patient, and the food came out quickly, which was all delicious. The feijoa dessert was amazing! Thank you for a great night. Will definitely be back to eat again.

Bit confusing on arrival who should be looking after us and when ordering our drinks not the happiest of staff member. Waitress service started well but then took too long to take away our dinner plates and we went and got our own dessert menus and ordered at the bar! then no apology for us having to do this.
Food was great compliments to the chef.

Was our first time at The Loading Ramp and we will definitely be back! Our lovely host was Jasmine and honestly she made our night. Food was yum, The fejoa and pear sorbet and cheesecake was just divine!
Our table was nicely tucked away but we could still feel the warmth from the amazing fireplace.
Was very enjoyable night.

Great night out with the family for my birthday. The food was flavorful and big portions which was good considering I have two boys. They have a great central fire which is great on a raining cold day.

Amazing food with so much flavour. My husband was very happy with the portion sizes as he hates going out to a restaurant and then needing to call into Macdonalds on the way home. I hate going to bulk food places with no flavour so the Loading Ramp suited us both. Friendly staff and nice having the fires. We will be back.

Excellent service; fantastic food! We were made to feel special - particularly the 9-year-old birthday boy who received a free dessert complete with candle! My 11 year-old daughter had the smoked salmon and mussels and said it was the best thing she had ever eaten! I really enjoyed the prawn dumplings and pulled pork taco and the kids' father demolished his chicken burger. Very happy diners indeed :)

Everything was fabulous , from start to finish. The staff were great and food portion sizes exceeded expectations. The fish and chips were excellent - crunchy well-cooked batter and beautiful chips. The chicken/bacon pizza was excellent, with lots of toppings and really cheesy. Staff had no problem with me taking the balance of pizza home. Unfortunately we were pushed for time, so couldn't stay for dessert, but we will definitely go back another time.
The menu was diverse and very accommodating for both hungry teenagers and more refined diners. Thanks!

We had a great time! The server was polite and very helpful, the food was wonderful, although the chef may want to hold off salting the bacon fat potatoes as they were a bit overpowering, but I recommend that everyone at least get a serving of the beer batter shoe string fries!

the food has really improved since i was last here (back then it was still amazing!!), with the change in menu I find the bar foods more exciting - you never really know what you're going to get. the tacos and pork buns were a wow for me! to top it off you could never go wrong with the coffee cocktail!

What a beautiful setting. We sat outside under the lean-too. It was warm but raining. The rain set the atmosphere! Venue could comfortably accommodate you no matter what the weather is, inside or out. Comfortable seating. Spacious and not claustrophobic. Generous portions of food! I couldn't finish my main nor could my hubby!... and we still attempted dessert regardless of the over-extended bellies, eeeek! Quality of the food was superb! The grilled prawns... I could have a double dose of that and been quite satisfied! Everything was amazing. Extra wow-factor with the detailed birds nest dessert! Very clever. Last but not least - our amazing waitress was friendly and patient as she came back a number of times to see if we were ready to order. Overall - ticks all the boxes. Thanks so much for the awesome service and food! :)

For entree the BBQ Prawns as well as the garlic flat bread were amazing! The Prawn avocado and tomato salad was quite basic and the avocado was blended too much into the dish.

For main the steak and the fish and chips were a great quality and the portion sizes were big which we liked.

The restaurant was more of a pub style and as we were there on a Saturday night it was quite noisy however, it was good that the restaurant portion was separated from the rest of the pub we can see that Loading Ramp have done their best to keep this separate.

Only negative was that there was no oysters but this showed on the menu online. When we asked the waitress she informed us that they had not been able to get any oysters in for the last month so they had to take them off the menu which we can understand but were disappointed as this was the reason we chose this restaurant.

The service we had was fantastic and definitely a highlight of the night!

Overall we had a great night and would come back when returning to Hawke's Bay!
