Lovely little bar selling their own smashing craft beer with perfect food to match! I had a wonderful jerk chicken and black bean hummus burger, while my wife had the calamari. Neither could be faultered. Plenty of options for the kids on the kids menu, and even more for the big kids. Will not visit rotorua again without coming back.... More

'Eatstreat' in Rotorua is competitive, to say the least, with many restaurants competing for the custom of tourists and locals. We regularly dine here and with such a great variety on offer, it's sometimes hard to settle on one eating house - a bit like Lygon street in Melbourne but on a lot smaller scale - Brew is a regular...

Eat street again! Brew serves a very late breakfast (brunch) because they don't open until 11 :( 10 on weekends. seating inside or out (protected mostly from the elements) and loads of beers (hence the name) but no cocktails. Super thin pizzas, heavy with high quality toppings. Service was prompt (though it's not busy Monday lunch) and the staff knew... More

This place is part of eats street here in Rotorua. It offers inside and outside seating. They offer a full bar and vast beer and wine selection. The menu has something for everyone. Pizzas, pasta, burgers, and wings.

We headed to Brew to celebrate two 65th birthdays. We asked for an inside table due to the awful weather. This was probably a mistake as, like most Eat Streat establishments, the focus seems to be on the outdoor area, leaving the inside tables lacking ambience. The food was good, standard bar food. Burgers and pizzas dominate the menu. Our... More

The best restaurant experience we had on a trip to Rotorua. Beer was excellent as expected but the food was also above average 'pub food'.

It was a quiet lunch time but you would have thought it was rush dinner hour. We ordered bread first as a starter and wondered why it took so long. It came with the pizza. The pizza was nice, shame about the wait.

Thank Justine G
