“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

We recently went for lunch to the Regent for the first time, why we havent been before I have no idea. It was Valentines Day so a special date for lunch! We were welcomed by very friendly staff. Our table was outside by the pool which is set in a courtyard so you felt like you were completely away from the rest of the world. You could have been in any European boutique courtyard really. Our waitress asked if we were local or not and when we said we were local she was amazed that we had not been before! And quite right she was. The food was superb, a lovely salad nicoise with smoked salmon, and my husband had the fresh terakhi and chips with salad and tartare sauce which was delicious. I would love to stay here as the rooms look stunning even thought we live in Rotorua. What more can we say, ITS A MUST!!! Thank you.

“Good location great decor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My partner and I went here for valentines day. We had pâté for starter it was bland and watery. My partner had lamb for main it was delicious. The biggest disappointment was the wine selection also the red wine my partner chose had definitely been in the bottle for a few days and not kept at the correct temperature so not pleasant to drink!
The restaurant itself is lovely and the service excellent.

“Boutique Hotel and fine dining in the HEart of Rotorua”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great restaurant and the only Boutique Hotel in Rotorua. Converted Motel into a unique high-end boutique Hotel. Felt right at home. Great little restaurant too with a nice ambiance . Only downside, no wine chiller.

“fantastic food, wonderful staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

My husband and I walked past on Sunday and although there only 2 other tables eating, thought we would give it a try. I am so glad we did, the food was fantastic, full of flavour and although appears to be on the small side, was just the right size. The young waitress was polite, knowledgable and attentive, her recommendations spot on.
Will definately be back, this time will try and squeeze a dessert in.
