We had delicious dinner, staring with tempura of Haua shell, sirloin steak sicks and fried cheese. All well done and prepared, tempura was gently fried with full richness of shell taste and structure. Chapeau. Main dish of market fish was just the way it should be, soft on inside yet with nice bite and full of taste. Additional fresh vegetable... More

The food was great. one of the best meals we have had in Northland NZ. The ambiance was wonderful with a location that is secluded and private.

Had been recommended by a few people and thought we would try it for lunch. So glad we did as it exceeded our expectations. Hapuka was very fresh and delicious

This was an amazingly tasty dish - served promptly with a side of Jasmine rice. Contained a generous amount of duck and accompanied with freshly cooked vegetables and with a few lychees too - had a Singa beer to go with the dish and thoroughly enjoyed every spoonful of the rather large serving - will certainly order it again when...

Can here for dinner after reading a review of it at the accomdation we were staying at. Staff were attentive and friendly and when the food came out we loved it. We had the lamb and fish of the day as mains and the trifle for desert. Fresh local sourced produced too. Great place, definitely would return and good value... More

Delicious food and great service in a beautiful setting. Wharepuke is my favourite place to eat in Kerikeri. It is consistently good and always delivers. We regularly make the 2 1/2 hour round trip from the Hokianga to eat here and I'm never disappointed. If you want something fresh, flavoursome and seasonal it's a must try.
