Love the subtropical gardens surrounding the cafe/restaurant. They do some of the best chips I have ever eaten. Am also a fan of their garlic and rosemary kumara dish. Staff are really attentive, cafe with the best view in Kerikeri!

What a superb meal. Just the most divine food. And superb service from well informed staff. And a real kiwi twist at the end of our lovely evening. One of the owners of Wharepuke restaurant drove our group up to our accommodation at Driftwood Central after the taxi service in Kerikeri failed to arrive.

My high expectations of Wharepuke were exceeded. Idyllic sub tropical setting, amazing food matched by carefully chosen wines plus faultless and friendly service. Very highly recommended to anyone looking for a fine dining experience in Kerikeri.

A short walk down the hill from The Bed of Roses B&B is this unique restaurant with delicious food for dinner. We sat outside, surrounded by the forest. You need to book, as it is very popular.
