All interestingly and exceptionally well presented and nicely cooked. The fish, hapuka, was rather dry. A pity as the portion was generous, and spoilt by being a little over... More

Having been happy on the 3 previous occasions we had dined at this restaurant we were amazed that this occasion was just so different. We were warmly greeted by Gretchen who did well but from all accounts turned out... More

My grandson has a severe nut alergy, this makes dinning out difficult. The staff were very helpful and we eat there most meals, the chef even came out and spoke to him offering other suggestions for food. We were also able to partake of some very enjoyable meals as well. Menu very good and a varied wine list. Thank you... More

A trio of older men, who meet up weekly, were out to celebrate a birthday. Since we eat out several times a week and travel regularly we are hard to impress, however Regent of Rotorua did just that last evening. From the friendly telephone booking call with Nathan to the farewell hug from Donna it was an EVENT TO REMEMBER.

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner in the Regent - the service was attentive and friendly and the food was excellent with a good choice on the menu. There were three people in our party, each making different choices from the menu and none of us was disappointed.
