Elephant Hill

Hastings & Around

There's plenty of great vineyard dining around Hawke's Bay, but copper-clad Elephant Hill in beachy Te Awanga is something special. Huge picture windows provide unencumbered views of Cape Kidnappers, and Elephant Hill's hand-picked sustainable wines partner supremely with seasonal dishes like lamb rump with anchovy and garlic, or whitefish, scampi and saffron gnocchi (mains $36 to $43).
