We went to there for my husband's birthday. The decoration is bright and clean. The food, tasty is good but not as good as what tripadvisor says. I would say average for me.

Nice venue, friendly staff, but standards not as high as previously, may have been an off day? A little pricey for food quality.

Firstly the service is friendly and they really try with the presentation of food but here goes: The portions are too large - try for quality over quantity (more goats cheese, less mouse for example) Don't know who is mixing those cocktails...and the bartender had no idea about wine (gave us a full wine glass of musket and we just...

We enjoyed our meal here. I had noticed this place and meant to come some time - recently we got the opportunity. We have gone gluten free and this was no problem. We had some nice wine and the service was great. The decor is lovely so you feel like it is a bit of an occasion. I recommend it.

Greeted by a warm welcome our party of four was ushered to our pleasant table in this spacious, tasteful restaurant. The food was excellent, beautifully presented and well worth the wait.

The staff was very nice and friendly. The room was very clean -- loved the decor. Overall, we had a great stay but wish the rooms were a little nicer for the price.

I have now eaten at the Regent twice. Both times with a group, from a fixed menu. The service was excellent, and the meal very tasty. The fillet steak was large and outstanding. Plenty of parking.

After our average experience last time due to staff issues we gave the restaurant another try on our recent return visit to Rotorua and were not disappointed. We had the best meal on Saturday evening, thank you so much. Your staff made us feel welcome and the food was delicious and very well presented. We didn't stay at the hotel... More
