We had a fantastic evening here, lovely setting, food was amazing. Roland is lovely and you can tell by the quality of food that he enjoys it. We were treated to a feijoa sorbet which was Devine. We'd go back and highly recommend this restaurant. Thank you Roland for a fabulous evening.

We had dinner at the restaurant and we were served by Roland, the restaurant owner. He was a fabulous host and the passion he had for his food and our dining experience was evident in the quality of the meals we enjoyed. I highly recommend you check out this hidden gem if you are visiting Waihi.

Enjoyed this restaurant with its pleasant view, good food and friendly staff. A weekday night it wasn't busy but suited us. All the meals were fresh, delicious and a reasonable size.

The scallops here were simply delicious. I had chilli scallops and the flavour was just perfect. The scallops were not on the lunch menu, but when we asked about them Roland the owner was very pleased to rattle off all the ways in which he could serve scallops. They were served with crispy wedges and salad. Roland was a delightful... More

Had a fantastic night at Waitete with family visiting from Australia! Chef Roland was a fantastic host and made us feel right at home. Shared some great stories, wine and, of course, incredible food! High recommend the restaurant and you MUST try the freshly made ice cream selection - to die for!

The ice creamery is gone, but Roland is there and the food is good for brunch. It is a favorite of locals, which is always a good sign

Just off off the beaten track so make sure you make the effort even if you are on a bike as we were. Roland is such a generous host and his staff could not be nicer. The food is his pride and it shows for this was the best meal we have had in NZ and we have had a... More

Four of us had dinner at Waitete Restaurant recently when doing the Hauraki Rail Trail. The food was great and just what we needed after a hard day's ride. Good sized portions and nicely presented. Plenty of variety on the menu too. A complimentary mango sorbet to cleanse the palate before our mea lwas a nice touch. Very reasonable prices... More

We have dined there many times, and have never been disappointed yet. The staff are always friendly and attentive, and the food from Chef Roland is always of the highest standard. His menus are never 'run of the mill' and he organises a monthly Wine Club (starting again in March) which is always very popular, very good value for money,... More
