Dining options galore

Great themed restaurant close to the CBD. So many different dining options, from outdoor on the balcony to individual themed rooms. Really good food. Good place for a work or social function too.

Wow 10 out of 10 for service and yummy healthy meals. We stopped here on our way back from a short holiday and we were longing for a healthy meal. We choose the chef salad and the Calamari salad. I have had those before when I visited in February so I knew they were good. And they were. The candied... More

The atmosphere at Abracadabra is great and the staff is always amazing. It's one of the places I go all the time to get a coffee, have a few after work drinks (love the Mojito) or catch up for a lunch date. We just recently went there for dinner but unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. Both of... More

After an experience that no one should even have at Nuvolare ( wasn't served for 25 min!!) I phoned Abracadabra to see if there was an available spot for 2, and although it was fully booked they managed to come to the party with a table! It's totally as it sounds, MAGICAL ! Mouth watering flavours with each and every... More

This was a family meal out, on the last night of our stay in Rotorua. Abracadabra had been recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. Customer service was excellent, from our phone booking, to our greeting and service, finishing with a hand written 'thank you' message on the bill. The food was excellent, starting with tapas entrees, four mains... More
