Set in a weathered blue beach bungalow, Pacifica Restaurant will surprise and delight any discerning foodie. Chef Jeremy Rameka's kiwi approach means you will enjoy Michelin quality food in a relaxed pacific-style atmosphere. The focus is on quality, excitement, freshness, passion, and flavour. His cuisine is a work in progress. It is based on emotion and bravery rather than convention. His dishes are dynamic and evolving. Subtle changes and steps of progression underlie his work.
The menu changes a bit all the time depending on what ingredients are available on the day and how chef is feeling. There are generally a dozen or so items – half of which are fresh seafood and the other half premium New Zealand meat and wild game. All dishes are served as small plates, encouraging guests to try a few dishes.
You will not find white table clothes or snooty waiters. Instead, you will enjoy true Kiwi hospitality and generosity. Pacifica offers world-class food, an outstanding concise wine list, front of house staff that are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional in a relaxed quaint setting in the heart of Napier.
