“Not bad”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

It was alright - we split the lamb shank for two amongst three of us and it was adequate - nothing special. The waiter was a little "too much of a much", but the atmosphere was real "cozy" with a fireplace for warmth. The dessert was nice.

“Lovely large meals”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

We've dined at the Lone Star before and forgot how large the meals were! Lucky we were able to take a 'doggy bag' home :)

“A Must!”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We came here for dinner because we had a coupon from the Rotorua booklet, which gave us a complimentary bread loaf (which was nice btw!) with any main course. The waiter was friendly and took initiative in recommending our orders. We decided to go along with the chef's catch of the day seabass fish and beef steak which were really awesome. Their jack daniel chocolate pudding is really yummy too. Everything on the table was good and i think this place deserves a much higher rating. i like their ambience too. Definitely a must-visit restaurant in Rotorua!
