We've been to Off the Track a couple of times before so on our 23rd wedding anniversary, that's where we wanted to go. Going by the full carpark when we arrived, it was just as good as when we went the first time (a few years ago!) We weren't disappointed. We were greeted with a smile and excellent service. After...

The menu is extensive and the food is consistently good at Off the Track. We have been here to dine four times over the past three years and have always enjoyed our experiences. They can be quite rightly proud of their excellent service, spotlessly clean facility and really good food. Highly recommended.

When we had the wedding, they... More

Off the Track was one of the nearby places recommended by our Airbnb hostess. We had not had a steak since arriving in New Zealand and were keen to have one. We each had a "saucy steak" which came with chips and garden salad. Accompanying sauces were delicious, I had brandy cream pepper and my husband had mushroom. Steaks were... More

Enjoyed attentive service and quite a quick meal delivery. He chose beef wellington - excellent. My pork medallions were tasty - 3 layers of medallions was more than I needed. The roast veges and salad yummy. Dessert - his was baked Alaska which again was excellent. I had an iced chocolate in view of size of main course. I prefer... More

We had a great dinner here tonight with a very nice view of Te Mata peak in the background. The menu was very extensive and there was enough variety in prices that I think you could eat here on a of budgets. The food and service were both great. I would definitely eat here again.

Good place for the family. A lot of menu choice. Pub style food cooked well. Local wines feature and worth a try

We had a table outdoors to a woderful view of the local mountains. It's got a great atmosphere and the restaurant feels very rural even though it's between Hastings CBD and the suburn of Havelock North. We were there ofr lunch and I don't have exotic tastes and had a lamb shank. It was wonderful. No room for dessert.

Thank terangi706
