Craggy Range Restaurant offers a warm and memorable experience, looking out on the spectacular backdrop of Te Mata Peak. We are fortunate to be located in Hawke’s Bay; home to some of New Zealand’s finest produce, and we are passionate about sourcing the best local produce from selected suppliers with whom we collaborate closely. Seasonality is a key focus for us, with many of our fruit and vegetables grown in our extensive kitchen garden. Our Head Chef Casey McDonald has worked in Michelin-star restaurants worldwide, and brings with him a dedication to quality of ingredients and simplicity of flavour. Evolution, confidence, quality and humility guide our menu and style of service. We are open for lunch and dinner Wednesday to Sunday in winter, and seven days a week in summer, and our bar offers light snacks and flights of wine throughout the day.
