Great place to dine with good menu and lovely food. You need to book ahead if you don't want to wait in line for 10 or 15 minutes as is very busy.

Awesome meal again at Lonestar Rotorua. Regan our waiter is a great host - very attentive and goes the extra mile to make sure your meal is perfect. He should be cloned!

Was an enjoyable eveing. We were waited on by Regan and the service was excellent. Meals were great there was no long wait for any of the courses. Strugling to think of anything that disapointed us so, overall all an A+

Googled "late night eats in Rotorua" and this place was listed. Checked their website and it states cafe hours to 11pm on Sat nights. Turned up just after 9pm to be told that the kitchen was closed. Apparently the 11pm closetime is for the bar and I could talk to the Manager if I wanted to. Walked out, very annoyed.

Couldn't be happier, as a complete food freak from Queensland Australia, the food was outstanding!! service was amazing from the minute we opened the door from all the staff to the minute we left! Our waiter Regan blew me away, deserves 10 points, loves his job and had outstanding people skills!! definitely stood out for all the good reasons!! Highly... More

Wow this place gets busy and we could tell why once we had eaten. The lovely Talita managed to raise her voice over the noise to make our evening lovely. Food was great - albeit more than we could all finish! May have to skip a main meal next time and go straight for the desserts😃
