This was a restaurant we had been looking forward to trying - and we were not disappointed. A lovely ambience, great service and fabulous food presented with pride. We're looking forward to returning with family and friends so we can try the dishes we missed out on!

At first we thought it would be humble . However once seated we admired the beautiful views and location . We then lapped up the wonderful atmosphere and welcoming service provided. The food was provided in a timely manner and absolutely spectacular! The presentation was beautiful and appropriately representative of the lovely location. We tried the specials of port belly and the rump with pasta, the oysters, cheesecake and the panna cotta. All wonderful

Great dining experience last night at AVK! We've been twice now through first table and will no doubt be back, the food and atmosphere was fantastic, as was the friendly and welcoming staff. Lovely way to spend a Friday night.

I really like the quiet dinning environment like this one.
I came from Auckland the same day with 2 of my other friends
We ordered pumpkin soups, lamb, eye fillet, and a burger.
The pumpkin soup was very filling. I like how it mix with ginger.
I personally enjoy the lamb the most, and it is excellent, however by comparing the sides for the lamb dish, I prefer the sides from eye fillet dish.
The eye fillet itself was OK preferably a bit hotter and thicker steak.
I haven't try the burger, but it was excellent according to my friend's comment.
Waiters were very helpful coming to table few times asking us if the food was OK and anything we need.
Same quality of the mains I will expect at the $40+ mark in Auckland, which it cost about $33 $36, which is very good price. Me and my friends feel ourselves earn it.

Fantastic! One of the best meals I have had in a long while and that's from an ex chef who is super picky!
Food was sublime, beautifully presented and the flavours were exquisite.
Service was understated but attentive and friendly.
Thank you for a wonderful evening, the 4 of us left very happy and satisfied.

We had an excellent meal at AVK on Saturday. We shared a Pizza Bread, both had Rib Eye steaks and ended with Cheesecake and the Chocolate Ganache. Everything was well presented and delicious, with excellent service. This was our first visit and we will definitely return.

Had a scallop starter and we had the rib eye and lamb rump as mains. The scallops were very likely the best we ever had. Took some real discipline not to order another plate. The 2 main courses accompanied with a couple glasses of syrah just completed a beautiful dinning experience for us. Will certainly recommend AVH to our friends and will make a point of going back when we are next in Napier.

This is the first time I have used first table, what a great idea.
Ahuriri Village Kitchen was lovely, great service, excellent food, good wine and pleasant surroundings. We had a table outside as it’s still warm enough to sit outside and watch the world go by.
I would highly recommend AVK.

This was our second time at the restaurant and the food keeps getting better. It has a small menu and that is what we have liked because it makes it easier to decide. Everything from starters to mains down to the dessert was delicious. Highly recommend.

Great food and even better service. Unfortunately my partner was not feeling well (not related to the meal), staff were very accommodating and packed our meals for takeaway. They also gave 2 drink vouchers, even though it was no fault of their own. Would recommend to others.

My mother and I dined at this restaurant last night, and really enjoyed our experience. The food was very delicious, with good sized portions. The beef burger was so tasty, and we thoroughly enjoyed the cheesecake & the gateau we had for our desserts. Thankyou to our waiter who had excellent customer service. Highly recommended, we will be back again.

At ahuriri village the reception was exceptional. Got there just before 6 and the FOH was pleasent and accommodating. We started with few drinks from hawkes bay region. The FOH was very knowledgeable of the wine and beer we requested and have us the assurance of the right choice. We got an entree to start, followed by a nice burger. It was juicy, felt healthy and tasteful. We got a Pana cota desert with boysenberry and strawberry which was nothing less than delicious. Great experience!!! Recommended!!!

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.
