While we have visited Volcano View very regularly, we now enjoyed a new specialty, a Dutch "Rijsttafel" or "Rice Table". As you can see from the photos below, a wide variety of dishes, with different types of meats, spices, veges, fruits and krupuk! Each dish...More

Hi John. Thanks for your review. We were happy that despite the fact that this basically is a sad day for you and your son, you could still have a laugh with our staff. Hope to see you again. Warmest regards, Joep

We had dinner there once and had great meals, all 5 of us. So impressed were we with the food and staff we came back the next week for lunch which is a different menu. What more can I say "I'll be back"

My family and I have been to Volcano View many times and always enjoyed it. Good food, reasonable prices and good service. Great atmosphere and on a fine day outdoor activities for children, including a flying fox.

Well, decadent...they are Dutch pancakes. Can't make them any smaller because the size is determined by the pan :) Cheers Joep

Volcanoview Restaurant established 26 January 2011. Friendly priced family restaurant with table service. No need to order at the bar, we come to you. Our food is healthy. Most of the dishes are gluten free, we grow our own lettuce, vegetables, capsicums, bake our own cakes, buns, bread, make our own beef/fish/veggie burger patties and all our sauces. So we know that what we serve is good healthy food. Further we cater for weddings, parties, work do's, functions, funerals, you name it. Average cost for a dinner buffet is $ 37,50 per head. Everyone can use the free pedal carts.Three flying foxes are all located on a private property. If you stick to the rules, nothing is likely to happen. Apart from the restaurant we offer camp ground, cabin and B&B facilities. All reasonable priced and the awesome views of Mt Taranaki are totally free of charge. Hope to see you soon.
