A French-owned and influenced restaurant, Café Tennyson is winning over diners with delicious homemade food, local NZ produce and French gastronomy passion.

Bonjour Paris… or should we say, Napier? This gorgeous little eatery will have you feeling right at home with its stylish bistro furnishings and contemporary déco.

Le Menu does not disappoint. An effortless fusion of French and Kiwi cuisine gives rise to tasty nibbles like ham and cheese potato croquettes, pork pate and their ever-impressive tapas platters designed for sharing.

The larger plates are also causing quite a stir with the organic Bostock chicken with a hearty hash cake, the eye fillet steak with creamy mash and your choice of sauce and the vegetarian tagliatelle that doesn’t hold back with the blue cheese! Of course, no French meal is complete without that irresistible snap of a crème brûlée or a chocolatey collection of profiteroles. Trust us, you don't want to miss this.
