We went here with our three sons aged 6, 4 and nearly 2. I was very impressed with the menu and great kids menu. Very welcoming and the kids well looked after. Would definitely go back again!! Loved the toddlers tray too.

Stumbled across this fabulous place while waling around Rotorua in July 2016. We were a group of 7 people just wandering around looking for some place nice for eats and drinks and we sure found it here! Food quality is excellent - and all at really good prices. Excellent range of drinks here also.

Abracadabra is our go to in Rotorua as our daughter has Coeliacs. Great staff and great food! Lots of room with large area or the back and outdoor area for kids to play. The ice cream cookie sandwiches are a fave with our kids 😀

Be sure to get a meal here...or coffee and dessert. In good weather, enjoy the patio, if you're meeting with a group, take one of the couch rooms.

Amazing food and the service was exceptional! There was also a wedding going on in the bar but this didn't effect us at all. The food and service was very quick and the waiter was absolutely lovely. I also got a coffee which was absolutely delicious, so we ended up going back the following morning for our coffee fix for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at this restaurant. The decor is colourful and upbeat, and the service was relaxed and friendly. The food is Spanish / Mexican style with fresh ingredients and plenty of choice
