Cosy, great food, good atmosphere

My friend and I met here for dinner last week. When entering I realised we had the whole place to ourselves, which some times can kill the atmosphere of a place - but not in this situation. Chef was very friendly and chat to me for about 20 min while I waited for my friend. Told me about his... read more

For a nice relaxing slow paced dine out with superb food, this is definitely worth a visit. It has an unusual setting in quiet surroundings with lots of character. We were in a group of 11 people and with only the resident German chef cooking, one has to be a bit patient. But the wait is worth it because the... More

This restaurant is quietly tucked away in a side street as you come into waihi, we had been recommended by a local who said it was the best sirloin in town and he was not wrong. The food is incredible. Our entire table enjoyed their meals portion size was great and the quality was second to none, the waitress was... More

We discovered this amazing place 4 weeks ago. Since then we have driven from Auckland twice just to eat here. The food is so amazing, I even stopped being vegetarian just so I could try the fish (highly recommend it). Roland ithrs awesome and makes you feel instantly at home. The food is always delicious and you can't resist the... More

Great location, fantastic flavours and friendly staff. Call ahead if you can and take your time to take in the atmosphere. Best pepper sauce and best ice cream I've ever had.

We stopped here for launch and enjoyed every minute. The prices are a bit high but the food is fresh and very tasty. The owner was super friendly and talkative. All in all, recommended if you are nearby

This visit was pre-booked for a large group of friends and we were able to be seated on one side of the restaurant, which was great. Service and food is always good here, and Roland will accommodate small or large groups. For visitors to Waihi, they may not realise this restaurant exists as it's off the main thoroughfare, but it... More
