This will go down as one of the best meals out we have had! Went out with our aunt out while visiting the Bay and were keen for a nice meal........the nature of the small and large plates lends itself to sharing food and all the flavours of the asian fusion type menu hit the spot perfectly. Beautifully presented and amazing food ! Great wine & beer menu too.

Had the Crispy Pork Bao, matched the glass of Rioja perfectly. Instead of ordering something else, went round again it was so good.

Excellent food, friendly service, reasonable prices.
Atmosphere was great for a 'date night'.
All food we ate was great, but the Korean Pork main dish was particularly good, I would go back there just to eat that again.
Highly recommended.

The fried chicken was fabulous, but the Mee Goreng noodles themselves were not great.

Food good. Open bowls of salt and pepper on the table is extremely unhygienic. Like have bowls of peanuts on a bar. Peoples dirty fingers.

Wonderful food with Asian twist. Thoroughly enjoyed the pork dumplings and duck - however the ice cream pie was superb. It has been a long time since I had a dessert which was so simple but had the taste buds tingly! A wonderful finish to a great meal.

Average to say the least, noodles seemed to be covered in just soy sauce which i could have done at home myself

As it was school holidays we had booked a table so on arriving there was no table reserved and we were told to sit anywhere. Luckily, although it was busy there were spare tables.
As my mother went to sit down on her chair she noticed it was covered in food. The waitress did clean it for her.
The only other comment to make was although the food was great we did not get approached again to ask if we needed more drinks or if the food was ok. It would have been nice to get a refill of wine and water.
Have been here a lot in the past and it was a shame to bring visitors from overseas and get sub standard service.

We loved out lunch with you on Sunday.

A little disappointed the corn fritters had run out but enjoyed the Pizza, although a rather dry base.

Noise level is high but it is to be expected in a popular eatery.

Many thanks

Have been going to M&H for the last 15 years and while the chefs and cuisine has changed the standard and quality has been consistently high. Great relaxed vibe

I do recommend Milk and Honey. The food and service are excellent. However, they do not use or honor any reservations that are made via the OpenTable App. The times show available but the restaurant does not honor them.

Tried a smorgasbord of the small plates which was great. As we could not make up our mind from many delicious dishes. Offering a shared platter would probably be popular. Lovely atmosphere as it was Art Deco weekend. Would go again.

Hi
We were recommended to Milk and Honey by the Fairley Motel, we found our waitress helpful and attentive. The food was delicious and it was across thee road from the beach.
Napier is a really interesting place.

We enjoyed marking our 10 year anniversary here on Saturday evening. We chose an assortment of small plates to share and thought the variety was great. The food flavours were nice, but the service reflected cafe standards rather than fine evening dining. Our order was mistaken (we were fine continuing without a mention), things were forgotten for our table and when I asked a question about a subsequent drink order it was a hassle for the lady. Other than that it’s wonderful to hear they keep an exciting, changing menu on the go! Thanks

Normal menu looks good but 'set menu' for New Years Eve was poor and a 'rip off' at $75.00 a head..

Will not go there again..

Amazing wine selection, particularly the chardonnays.... so hard to choose which to enjoy! Great, attentive service.Had a fabulous dinner - shared a variety of the small plates with a friend, while the others elected to have the large plates.... definitely a huge case of food envy when the meals came out, but absolutely loved the small plates, could've ordered the same again and devoured it all, very tasty. The only slight negative was that there was minimal pork belly pieces etc in the lettuce cup plate... needed to be a bit more to enable use of the lettuce.
