went there two nights, one to take away food. First night very busy, quite noisy, excellent food. Second late afternoon to take away kitchen food for dinner, not busy but very slow service.
Very nice people but not notable for the dress or appearance of staff, a bit scruffy.

We dined at the Fat Dog last night, the meal was very nice but got to say it was also very large.
My husband and I both had a fish meal and we could not fault it. The service was good and the meal very nice.
We have dined there before and will return.

Always been my favourite cafe in Rotorua, always buzzing, lots of people, great coffee, always take new visitors to Rotorua there. Miss it now we don't live there anymore. Will always stop there when in Rotorua. Might even catch up with old friends there.

Went to this place as we have a voucher dinner (lamb shanks) was just ok.
Decor is very old and in need of updating. Old food on the floor from the table thay had sat in the same place before us. Bugs on the edge of windows.
Place was busy so must be popular with locals and other restaurant owners/workers were coming in to purchase full size cakes. And I must admit the desert was fantastic however expensive on comparison to other places.

Only had drinks here on both occasions that I have visited and they were to die for!! Both the hot chocolate and iced chocolate were amazing - this is what these are supposed to be like!! Both looked and tasted fantastic!!
