elegant and classy

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... read 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

We stayed at the Regent of Rotorua, so we dined here for breakfast and dinner. Both the breakfast and dinner were very good and the staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The food was prepared elegantly and skillfully. While, I gave the restaurant a 5, it is expensive; It is good if you are willing to spend the money, but... More

We had dinner on Valentines Day at the Regent, after a recommendation. The restaurant had a nice ambience and classy decor. It was unusual to be seated at right angles to my husband rather than opposite him and I felt that this detracted from the "romantic" element. Most of the tables for two seemed to have seating at right angles.... More

The guys have done a fantastic job with this hotel. The decor in the common areas through to the rooms is fantastic albeit a little quirky. The rooms are finished beautifully and are a good size. You must try the restaurant, great menu, great food, great service. I'd say pretty much the best in Rotorua. Wouldn't hesitate to strongly recommend... More

Went for a birthday meal with the hubby, the decor is classy as is the whole experience from the waiters/waitresses, food and wine. The food was delicious and tasty. The staff were ever so friendly and made you feel so welcome, we had a great experience. Although if I had to make a criticism it would be that my chicken... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. Staying at the hotel we decided to also eat here. First we had some good drinks, different NZ red wines to taste. The beef fillet was cooked to perfection and the fish of the day very good, too. The Manuka Honey Panna Cotta was finger licking good :-) We also had breakfast here: eggs... More
