We stopped here twice in the few days we were in Rotorua. They have some of the best fish and chips around and their salads are wonderful. Breakfast mocha coffee and muffins are outstanding. Atmosphere is casual and fun. Don't miss this one!

it was busy whenever we walked past, and recommended by locals... atmosphere was great, and service was top notch, but sadly let themselves down with dry chewy lamb shank and an average steak - portions were huge, but evening food standard was pretty average for the price..

Our hosts recommended it, and we weren't disappointed. We were only in Rotorua for 3 days, and ate at Fat Dog 3 times (twice for lunch, once for breakfast). Atmosphere is super fun and laid back, food is delicious. Fish sandwich is one of the best things we had during our entire 2-week stay in New Zealand.
