“Seeing a New Twist on Flavour at Lukes Well Done”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Always a pleasure to travel over the hill from Whitianga on a lovely evening to arrive at Lukes and to received the warm welcome he and the team give. Blackjack Pizza and some home grown Rocket was an awesome explosion of flavour - Thanks for the Tip Luke. We took clients from Holland staying with us at our B&B to dine alfresco Kiwi Style and the experience is one they will take back with fond memories watching the sun go down at Kuaotunu. Well done you have it just perfect.

“Its the Handbasin”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

5 Years since we were here and lots of upgrades. The kitchen/restaurant communications system upgraded to bike wheels (The toilet bike is still in the tree). Toilets have been added and the feature handbasin sculpted from two stones is a joy to behold. The food was great. They now have wines available but still allow BYO with a moderate corkage. Overall, a great experience and super atmo.

“Keeps Getting Better & Better at Lukes”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

One of the fascinating things about Luke's Kitchen is how it just keeps on getting better and better every time we go over there from our B&B in Whitianga. Luke and his team provide awesome food and the friendliest service one could wish for. Today it was Luke himself who made our pizza's and they were just fantastic ... thanks guys, we enjoy coming to your place so much.

“Superb pizzas in a great laid back setting.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had three great pizzas at Luke's one evening last month. The setting is simple and the atmosphere very friendly. If you want to experience NZ hospitality, as well as eat superb pizzas, I recommend you go here. Try the triple P pizza !
