We came on a busy Friday night, we were with 8 people in total! The starters are pretty basic, the main meal was average and one person out of our 7 had to wait at least another 10 minutes after we received our meal. The waiter serving our food had a very bushy beard, no hygiene in regards to a... More

We chose Brew from the many restaurants in the Streat in Rotorua. We were not disappointed although I did think the Quiche dish I had was a bit on the small size. My husband had a burger and thought it was very nice.

This was definitely one of the better pubs in NZ. The beers were great and they had an excellent selection of beers on tap and then some more from bottles. Food was good, servings were not big but decent. Definitely going back again if we are in Rotorua.

Excellant food with a casual atmosphere in "Eat Streat" Can have a light lunch or something larger. Bear is good, but a little expensive.

We went for dinner at the Craft Brewery and Kitchen recently while staying in Rotorua. The food was amazing!! I had the lamb grill plate, where I was able to cook the lamb to my desired level of done-ness (lots of fun!) The marinade that the lamb was in was also fantastic. My husband had the salmon which was also... More

We had dinner here our first night in Rotorua. I had the best fish and chips I have ever had. I went for the mushy peas option rather than the salad and it was really yummy. The tartare sauce was out of this world, and the other sauces that my husband got with his burger were also really good. Service... More

We visited this place multiple times while staying in Rotorua. Great selection of drafts and loved all the beers. I would definitely recommend doing a flight or two to try as many drafts as possible and would come back if staying in Rotorua again.
