Dutch style food with a magnificent view. My children always have fun here on the home made pedal cars. Plenty of gluten free options on the menu.

A very nice family cafe/restaurant. Nice variety of food, where my favourites are the pancakes. Bacon, apple, even spicy pancakes are available. Really good for families, as the children will be happy to spend plenty of time on the little cars and the playground. For...More

Great view, lovely owners, great good for a reasonable price and the thing what I should recommend others is the scotch Fillet with mushroom sauce. This place is perfect for children and for families. Especially the flying foxe are a must do

Hi Tess, Thanks for the kind words. Makes us happy when our guests are happy. And if you read the visitor book, you will see that the majority are leaving happy, with a full stomach and an not so empty wallet. 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.
