Modern NZ in Hastings & Around

Hotel restaurants can be hit-and-miss, but Malo at the Porters Boutique Hotel in Havelock North hits the right notes. Harnessing truckloads of regional and seasonal Hawke's Bay produce, the open kitchen turns out dishes with local lamb and venison, fresh oysters, tuna and kingfish from the raw bar, and beer snacks like Vietnamese rolls, sashimi and dumplings nightly from 4pm.
