This was some of the best food we had on the north island. Everything was delicious, from the creative corn cake fritters to the soup. Perfectly seasoned, thoughtfully created, generously portioned, all excellent. We will definitely return!

The cafe is not so ritzy. Yet, the menu selection was good and we were pleased with our orders. Quality, plus okay prices. I would dine here again without a doubt.

The meals here are on pricey side. But quality is there. Kids menu really good. Remember, it is an expensive place. If you on a budget, drive to Otorohunga for cheaper options.

We ate lunch there a twice during our visit to the Waitomo caves. The food was excellent and we especially enjoyed the salads. There is a nice view over the 'valley" and open air seating is available. The servers were friendly and efficient.

Stopped here after visiting Waitomo glow worm caves. The staff was friendly and the food was great. Didn’t expect to find this little gem there.
