This place has got to be one of the most beautifully set out restaurants in the country! The decor is amazing and the service is wonderful! My mother and I had an antipasto platter which has to be the best selection of food on one platter i have seen. The cheeses were divine as well as the cold meats and... More

We stayed as guests in the Regent. Upon arrival we decided to eat in the Regent that evening and then go out the following night to Bistro 1284. We didn't know at the time that the owners also own Bistro 1284 - so there was a degree of overlap between the two menus. The dining area is very pleasant, fine... More

January 2015 two night visit. Stayed in the brand new section, only about 4 months old. Of course very clean since so new and trendy. Loved the under lighting under bathroom granite vanity. Only drawback is lack of windows and access to fresh air via windows or balcony. But convenient location, and hipness of the place made up for lack... More

This was our favorite place to eat in Rototrua, but the last couple of visits have let it down. It is part of a motel and the reception was directly attached to the restaurant. This dose make it noisy, which the owners have addressed as much they can, well done. But the food on this visit was no where near... More

A stunning location for a friends birthday and I was blown away by the awesome service in the private room which was cosy for eleven of us. We had a waiter who was at our beck and call and was most professional. I loved that we could choose from the brunch menu (which is available until 3pm) or the lunch... More

Great restaurant in the heart of Rotorua. A more formal restaurant than others we had visited, with white tablecloths, elegant surroundings and polished staff. Both food and wine menus were good, with something for everyone. Our meals were superb, enhanced by impressive wines on offer. The service was efficient without being intrusive. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The prices... More

We were staying at Regent for a few nights and usually don't eat in hotels for dinner, however on Dec 25 almost nothing was open. Besides delicious breakfast every day, Regent served up a fabulous Christmas Dinner for us on the 25th. Three courses, all great, very good service, nice wine selection and good cocktails. We enjoyed ourselves. Thanks again,... More

This restaurant has impeccable food, service,attention to detail in the setting. It's relaxing atmosphere even when very busy is a haven. We have dined here many times as a couple, with family and friends . The prices reflect the local market and are very reasonable for the quantity and quality of food. We cannot say enough about the owners and... More
