“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Dined here on a Thursday night after seeing the menu in our motel compendium, and I'm so glad we did!
We were impressed from the moment we walked in - the room was spacious (but not sparce), and nicely decorated. The menu is lovely, with lots of kiwi-themed items to choose from. The food was fantastic! I wished I had a second stomach so that I could keep eating! Steak was cooked perfectly, and the other dishes were mouthwatering. Service was great too - the waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great place to eat in Rotorua! :)

“Spacious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013 via mobile

Food here was ok. Bowl of chips (very small serve) was $4 which I thought was a bit over the top. The aoili was a bit bland. Had the pulled pork wrap which was also a bit tasteless. Probably would not return as there are a lot of restaurants in Rotorua to choose from.

“Excellent meal but poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Had a great meal on the Friday 2nd Aug, arrived around 07.30pm and waited for 15 min before being served. There was only 4 tables occupied and one of the waiters was cleaning tables.
The lady that served us was new to the job but very polite.
The fish and chips was great. Been there before and the service was excellent, maybe a bad day.

“A cook who knows how to cook steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is pretty close to fine dinning. A pleasant atmosphere, well set out tables, and a cook who can handle a very well done steak and a medium rare steak without one being cold. Well worht a visit.
