Good Food Guide - - Hawke’s Bay -

Set within the el­e­gant grounds of Craggy Range, Ter­rôir has an invit­ing French-coun­try kind of charm – stone floor, roar­ing fire, can­de­labras, herbs in ter­ra­cotta pots on each ta­ble. The am­bi­ence matches the flavour­some French bistrolean­ing dishes that cel­e­brate fresh Hawke’s Bay pro­duce. A beau­ti­fully cooked black sesame-crusted con­fit of sal­mon is joined by crunchy cele­riac re­moulade, ver­juice, ap­ple puree and olive oil pearls, while an au­tum­nal dessert of grilled figs is topped with a quenelle of wild thyme and honey ice cream, the honey col­lected from Craggy Range’s own hives. Wait­staff are cheery and knowl­edgable, and the ex­ten­sive list of Craggy Range wines are avail­able in four dif­fer­ent pour sizes – a nice touch. 254 Waimarama Rd, Have­lock North, ph: 06-873 0143, crag­gy­range.com April- Oct lunch & din­ner Wed-sun; Nov-march lunch & din­ner 7 days; mains $33-$36 IN BRIEF Hearty French fare with am­bi­ence to match
