The staff are polite and accommodating, and the... More

We have been travelling for 6 months and one thing we share in common with most NZ's we have met that have had a dining experience at Food at Wharepuke is that it was one of the best restaurants and delicious meal they have ever had. This family run business is by far my favourite choice when we want to... More

Our B&B proprietors at Treghan Cottage recommended and reserved a table for us at this restaurant during our stay in the area. It’s tucked away “in the bush” off the Kerikeri Road at the north east end of town and has its own car park however if you’re visiting outside the summer season possibly take a torch to find your...

This excellent restaurant is in a natural bush setting. You walk from the car park along a short winding path to the restaurant that blends in with the setting. The food was fantastic. We started with an entree pate which we shared. A lovely start. My wife had pork belly and it was the best she have ever experienced. I... More

In my opinion this is the best food in kerikeri. Yes it's a bit expensive but the food is so good you don't feel you have been ripped off. You come out really full and satisfied knowing you have had very good food cooked to perfection.

We stumbled across this cafe when we took a wrong turn while going through Kerikeri and we were really glad we did! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. We had our 2 small boys with us which can always be a challenge in nice eating establishment but the staff were really good with them and they loved... More

Having eaten our way around the World..............we find ourselves not needing to venture further North than Kerikeri to enjoy a wonderful dining experience . Colin, Rachael, Pat and the team are providing the international fare, with particular emphasis on clean and delicious tasting Thai cuisine that we both love. The restaurant always looks so inviting, the food is phenomenal, great... More

We visited for the first time and used our GrabOne vouchers yesterday and will definitely be back. The people were very friendly and accommodating. The food is excellent and we can't wait to try more dishes.
