A consistent favourite on the Havelock North dining scene since 2007, packing big punchy flavours into shared plates, there is a reason Deliciosa is still at the top of its game. Owner Sarah has developed a reputation for impeccable service and a food and wine experience that continuously delivers on flavour. 

Deliciosa is a popular spot among winemakers from around the region, Havelock North locals and visitors who have heard good things. The rich green and wine red interior is immediately welcoming, and you will quickly feel right at home here. Many regulars are greeted by name, and the attentive team often has their favourite tipple ready and poured for them. Relax and enjoy your meal from the comfort of one of the luxurious Chesterfield-style leather sofas. Or perhaps you want to be a bit more part of the action and take a perch up at the bar, it’s definitely a prime people-watching spot!

The food is the real star at Deliciosa, with a sharing plate-style menu and a mix of small plates and larger options to enjoy. Described by the chef as “a love child of seasonal opportunity and favourites that regulars refuse to allow to leave”, there isn’t a wrong choice when it comes to ordering for your table. Complementing the shared plates is an extensive range of local and international wines, cocktails and craft beers - we are in Hawke’s Bay, after all!

So whether you are meeting up with a group of friends for a well-overdue catch-up or out on a date night, Deliciosa has the complete package of a great atmosphere, delicious food and a well-curated drinks list.
