“Fantastic Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Went to Hennessys last night with the kiddies and it was fantastic. Super friendly staff, impecable service and the food was really scrummy. Such big hearty meals ended up sharing mains and puddings it was that big. Nice family place to take your kids, you know how it can be with kiddies and restaurants (but not here) 10/10 a must have experience when your travelling through Rotovegas. Will be returning :-)

“A family favourite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Great food and service, this place is a regular for the regulars as well as "just the spot" for a visitor to relax and enjoy. The Sunday quiz nights are a winner. And you'll never visit without hearing Dexy's Midnight Runners at least once! Cheers.

“A Piece of Ireland in Rotorua”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Great Irish pub in the CBD. The shepherd's pie is yummy but the food is not always great. Worth a visit though even if its just for a guiness!!

“Excellent Food and Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

My daughter and I ate there twice in our 3 days at Rotorua this year, lunch and dinner. The outside attracted us, the inside confirmed it....great Irish Pub, fantastic food with the best Bangers & Mash we have tasted and the desserts are delicious, very friendly staff and the atmosphere, warm and welcoming....I highly recommend Hennessys when staying in Rotorua. A++++++++++++
I have photos and will submit one when I have gone through them all. :)
