Looking for a neighbourhood restaurant where the vibe is that perfect mix between casual, approachable, yet effortlessly sophisticated? Mary’s in Havelock North fits this brief to a tee.

The result of a partnership between the award-winning Craggy Range winery and head chef Casey McDonald, Mary’s feels like it wouldn’t be out of place in the dining scene of Melbourne or San Francisco. There’s a chic and elevated nature to the restaurant, with thoughtful details and touches all around;  from the navy leather bench seating, to the luxurious yellow drapes, to the prints on the wall that showcase different scenes and places from around the world. If you have a seat inside, from most tables, you have a great view of the bar and open kitchen to watch the chefs at work. While outside in the courtyard, the terrazzo-covered tables provide the perfect backdrop to any food ‘gram or ‘tok you might want to take. 

As Mary’s is a collaboration with Craggy Range, be prepared to be blown away by the food and make sure you come hungry, as you’ll want to try everything! The bistro-style menu is a mix of favourites that we all know and love, plus dishes with a more inventive spin. We’re talking fried chicken, grilled tiger prawns and oysters (in season) for entrees, while the main event heroes the protein on the plate, such as slow-cooked lamb and eye fillet. 

All of this incredibly delicious food is accompanied by a wine list that is exclusively from Craggy Range (with the exception of some sparkling and champagne options). Mary’s also take great pride in their cocktail game and on a sunny Hawke’s Bay day, it’s hard to beat seating outside in their courtyard with an Aperol Spritz in hand.  


With reputation and pedigree behind them, Mary’s does not disappoint, and this is exactly the kind of neighborhood restaurant you want around the corner from your house.
