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.

The family owners of Cafe Jerusalem in Keri Keri suggested we dine at Food at Wharepuke. We are firm regulars at Cafe Jerusalem but felt we needed to try somewhere new. Delightful in every aspect. The sub-tropical setting outside is delightful by night with lighting. The interior is really interesting and quite different to most, very innovative. The food is... More

Amazing tropical garden setting and amazing food! Sat we had a late lunch - and the staff were happy to serve us even as they cleaned up after a very busy time with a large group. The chicken schnitzel sandwich was delicious and came with salad and fries. Followed by affogarto, it was a great lunch. We went back for... More

What a find, this place doesn't look much from the car park but the chef is extremely talented and leads his team with skill. All is calm from the kitchen and the food that it turns out is scrumptious. We had the Friday night Thai Banquet and couldn't fault it, only wish our tummies had been bigger!

Went for lunch with high expectations based on the reviews and were left feeling disappointed. $14 for spring roll entree and we got two tiny little spring rolls 3 inches long. Really? $7 per spring roll. I am sorry but that's pretty poor. Main course was fish of the day and Vietnamese Pho chicken soup. The fish was over cooked... More

We came here for dinner and the restaurant sits in a very beautiful area. My wife and I both had the green seafood curry which was phenomenal. We also had the panna cotta and coconut ice cream. Both were excellent. Great wine and drink menu.

The Italian food & wine evening last Tuesday 27th May 2014 was awesome. The food as ever was excellent and having a wine tasting event to compliment the food was a brilliant idea. Thank you for an excellent evening, Lindy & Stephen, Owners at Melliejoanz.

The Chef at Food at Wharepuke is so talented. I have quizzed him for his panacotta recipe and although he gave me the basics ( and a few more tricky bits of info !) I doubt if I could recreate his version. The rest of the menu is nicely varied and every dish I have had has been excellent. The... More
