We loved his personal and highly attentive service, including his expert advice on Chess. Every need was anticipated by all staff, the grounds were perfect and the food variety and wine selection first class.

We decided to swing by as the reviews on Tripadvisor are great and were looking for a place with a fire place. So at 6pm we arrived and the first thing we noticed was the smell of the gas fire place. Furthermore the ambiance of the restaurant was not cosy. It was not inviting us to stay and have a... More

From the warm greeting at the door to the chat with the GM of the hotel, service cannot be faulted. Delicious food was served discretely and recommendations from waiting staff appreciated. I cannot fault this restaurant.

The whole experience with Huka Lodge restaurant has been perfection starting from the beginning to the end. I wrote to them prior to make reservation for casual lunch knowing it's going to be a public holiday weekend, the emails were warm and welcoming, and I was truly happy when they replied they could accomodate us! The lodge itself is private... More

We were returning from seeing a show in Auckland and decided to have lunch here. Huka Lodge's reputation has always been intimidating. Where WAS my Armani suit and diamond encrusted platinum Rolex..... and was the Lamborghini good enough to grace their car park??? As we walked the short distance from the car park to the lodge we received an inviting... More

The staff are very friendly and efficient and the food is of a high standard. We were there out of season and I would advise some caution if the Lodge were full as the common space areas particularly for drinks and to a lesser extent for the restaurant itself may be somewhat limited particularly if the weather precludes using the...
