We finally got around to trying out Ahuriri Village Kitchen for dinner last week through firsttable.co.nz and had a very enjoyable evening. We sat outside so we could enjoy the last of the day's heat and sunshine on another glorious Hawke's Bay evening. The service was great (thanks Karl). He was friendly, helpful and knew his stuff. The wine he suggested was very complementary to our meals and all of the courses came out at just the right time. Both us had a different starter, main and dessert, and were happy to share the odd bite with each other. Special mention goes out to the salmon starter and the cheesecake which was very light, fruity and delicious. It was a really enjoyable night and we will be sure to return again.

Attentive owner and friendly staff. Great food. A small menu with variety. Rum and raspberry cheesecake was to die for yum, yum, yum. Good wine list but not all available by the glass.
Good location across the road from sea, not all tables had a sea view.

A real gem! Service was attentive and friendly, the food was well presented and excellent. Dessert was fabulous!
Love the olives and edamame beans...recommend.
Steak was to die for..ever so tender. Lamb equally so. Risotto was very, very rich (blue cheese) - probably too rich. Enjoyed the mushroom and carrots as sides. The cheesecake to finish was extraordinary.
Will be back!

An absolute taste sensation. The salmon entree was 10/10. The steak was cooked perfect. The nicest meal out we have experienced in Napier in food and service. Thank you First Table to alerting us to this find.

My husband and I enjoyed our food. Not a suitable restaurant for fussy eaters though (as we found out with our 18 and 22 year old kids). A pasta dish on the menu wouldn't go amiss.

This restaurant was a gem of a find. Each plate we had was a taste sensation. This was certainly one of the best meals we have had dining out in Napier. The waitress was lovely and we had overall a lovely dining experience. We will certainly go again.

The AVK was the prefect balance of classy & comfy. There were hats and blankets available outside if the weather wasn’t what you prepared for.

Between the four of us dining we had the lamb, steak, and fish of the day, of which all we would highly recommend. The different flavours and ingredients used was interesting but all worked fabulously together.

I hope we can find another time in our schedules to enjoy this beautiful place again!

A very enjoyable evening, service and the food was outstanding - we were unable to fault any of the dishes. Each was cooked to perfection and the flavours exquisite. Our group of 4 each had 3 courses - amongst them, the venison, pork belly, rib eye, panna cotta and chocolate ganache. Our second visit to AVK but certainly not our last.

We had an awesome dining experience at Ahuriri Village Kitchen. The service was incredible- friendly, efficient and non obtrusive. The decor and ambience is perfect - there are tables inside and out with blankets and sun hats available for use. But the food - oh my goodness! The warmed olives were a perfect appetiser. Thai tofu starter was full of Thai flavours and the lamb, saffron mash and asparagus was cooked to perfection and a fantastic spring dish. I didn’t really need dessert but couldn’t go past the chocolate ganache with vanilla icecream- heaven on a plate! The food is presented so beautifully and all tasted amazing. We will definitely be back!

I took my wife here with our daughters for her birthday. The service was just wonderful and the food was delicious. They even put some cans in a muffin and piped Happy Birthday in chocolate on the plate! Those little touches are soooo appreciated. Would recommend this restaurant. Thank you for great food, service and evening.
