The Vision

The Restaurant Association of New Zealand are proud to present the 2021 Hawke's Bay Hospitality Awards with the support of Lead Sponsors Gilmours.

We know our industry has been having a tough ride so we want to provide an opportunity to bring the hospitality industry together, to put aside the challenges Covid-19 is creating for us and focus on celebrating the great people and businesses that are keeping our local hospo humming.

The Awards are an important ingredient for the region as Hawke’s Bay is recognised globally for its distinction in food and wine. It’s imperative the hospitality industry recognises its champions as it provides not only a peer benchmark for excellence, but also serves to give consumers valuable guidelines on the best places to visit.

20 awards will be awarded to the best of the Hawke's Bay hospitality industry, as voted by your peers. From crew members, to suppliers, to establishments – the best of the best will be celebrated for their contribution to creating a world-class hospitality industry right here in Te Matau-a-Māui.
