By far my favourite bar in rotorua. Friendly knowledgeable staff that can easily help you choose from their vast and ever changing selection of craft beers. Not stingy with sampling them either, after all who wants to buy a pint to find out they dont like it? Good atmosphere, good live music, tasty pizzas. Just love it.

Loved this place. Went there with my sis on a sunday night for a quiet feed and drink. Heard it was a good place for local craft beer so I gave it a try. Can't recall the name of the craft beer I tried, but it was delicious and recommended by the waiter there. They def know their beer. Glad... More

As a tour driver/guide I get to travel the length and breadth of our beautiful country and dine at some of the best (if not most expensive) cafes and restaurants. Eggs Benedict is one of my favourite Brunch meals and my doctor would hate me for adding to my cholesterol but hey, you gotta have some fun in life too.... More

As a regular to Eat Streat in Rotorua i would have to say that if you are looking for a place to eat as well as having a few drinks you cannot go passed BREW. The staff are always so friendly and helpful! Which always makes the experience so much better. This particular night my partner and I shared a... More

We had just finished the rotorua marathon and decided to grab a bite to eat and found this place. I have to say it was a good find. We had steak sandwiches which were very tasty with focaccia bread, fresh lettuce, and tomato. It also came with hand made chips which were well seasoned and very filling. My husband had... More

Awesome craft beers available, friendly knowledgable staff, good atmosphere. The calamari was tasty but not quite as tender as it could have been - but was tasty and enjoyable.

Beer was really good as was the food -- but careful with the bread: we ordered the smaller half loaf and it was enough for 4!
