This place is always humming. The menu is the same, Lunch or Dinner and is tantalising to say the least...what to order is the hardest decision as all the food sounds delicious and it is just that! We enjoyed both Lunch, casually outside, ( I had the eggplant dish and my husband the curry ) even in the middle of... More

We like to walk there for our coffee, orange almond flourless cake or vegetable muffin, it is very nice to sit outside within the subtropical garden and, often, watch the wood pigeons. But we also went for the Thai banquet and all the food was very good. Beware - they are closed on Sunday (!) and Monday.

This is the second time we've visited. Food and wine were good, although the portion sizes for won tons and spring rolls were really small for the price so that was disappointing. In the two years since we visited in the menu hadn't changed much. However the location is great and food yummy!

A group of 10 of us went for dinner and could not fault any of the food. It was exquisite and completely faultless. Highly recommended

we dined here a couple of weeks ago for a birthday. I found the food a rip off. I have dined at many top notch restaurants and found Wharepuke to be overrated! The service was good but the food was a rip off, i.e. when ordering pork belly as a main be prepared to receive a pork strip cut into... More

We enjoyed a red & green curry & asked for it to be cooked 'medium hot' & the chef succeeded in doing this after requesting that the chilli be cooked in the meal rather than the waitresses suggestion of simply giving us chilli flakes to add ourselves!! Ideally this should not happen as the spices need to be added during... More

We visited Kerikeri in late September 2015 and eat at this restaurant and two nights in a week - brilliant - nothing more to say.

I always go to this restaurant when I visit family (2-3 times a year) and it always exceeds expectations. Beautiful setting and creative without being too adventurous menu. Service is excellent. Definitely visit. Awesome outside seating available too.

This is a very atmospheric restaurant. The staff are lovely and the food an absolute delight. This is the second time to visit this restaurant. Was in town on business and had looked forward to visiting after our initial visit. Totally delicious. Won't disappoint!
