Mint Restaurant serves good food with quality ingredients, well cooked and well presented. The quality of the dishes with mains under $30 and entrees/sweets around $15 means it is very good value. A nice place for a pleasant meal - you won't be disappointed.

We had a beautiful three course meal at Mint. The food was delicious and the chef made sure there was sufficient time between each course. I will definitely return here when next in Napier.

We felt the food did not match the rating given, in comparison with other fine dining establishments locally and beyond, and restaurants of a lesser rating on this website. It was nice, just not the 'fine dining' 'Top rating' food experience we had been... More

Landmark atop phoenix island on the eastern coast of jeju island. One of a kind architecture that add energy to the natural lookout, MINT serves fusion korean taste that is hard to find elsewhere on the island. High recommend for a chill out after a casual hiking along the seashore !

I'd taken my partner here for us to have a nice quiet birthday meal..just the two of us. Upon arrival, we were shown to our table which was upstairs and with a view out over the water and towards Cape Kidnappers, perfect as the light bounced across from the sunset. We shared a starter and entree which were both very... More
