Description: Volcanoview Restaurant established 26 January 2011. Friendly priced family restaurant with table service. No need to order at the bar, we come to you. Our food is healthy. Most of the dishes are gluten free, we grow our own lettuce, vegetables, capsicums, bake our own cakes, buns, bread, make our own beef/fish/veggie burger patties and all our sauces except mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. So we know that what we serve is good healthy food. Further we cater for weddings, parties, work do's, functions, funerals, you name it. Average cost for a full fledge dinner buffet is $ 37,50 per head. The funny - if you can call it funny - thing is that we are ranked 111 out of 120 restaurants in New Plymouth by the guys who manage this international web site, whilst the average review over all these years results in a rating of 4,5 stars. Well, no worry, this is the place to be for young and old. Everyone can use the free pedal carts.Three flying foxes are all located on a private property. The use of the flying foxes is at your own risk, because Volcanoview, the management and our staff cannot be held responsible for any accidents. If you stick to the rules, nothing is likely to happen. Apart from the restaurant we offer camp ground, cabin and B&B facilities. All reasonable priced and the awesome views of Mt Egmont are totally free of charge. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards, Joep & Anemoon & Kathy

“Awesome”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

We just had our work xmas function last Saturday night. The people-the service was brilliant. The food was delicious and they went out of their way to make sure we had available all that was required. Had a blast on the flying fox and the Peddle Karts. Totally recommend to everyone. This place rocks.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed December 3, 2013

We went back to VolcaNoview again to celebrate a birthday. Although it was pouring with rain and there was no chance of playing on the flying fox or pedal carts, we were happy to sit and relax inside. We felt very welcome and this restaurant is very family friendly. The food was lovely and certainly value for money with generous portions. There is plenty of choice on the menu. The kids were very happy with their meals and the pork ribs and fish dish that the adults had were delicious. Lovely coffee to finish the meal off. One of our favourite places to eat.

“Unique family restaurant with a magnificent view”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

A family restaurant with honest food, casual atmosphere and a stunning view on the vulcano "mount Taranaki". We also stayed two nights in the bed & breakfast at Volcanoview. A great place to escape and recover at the start of our New Zealand vacation.

“Service and scenery”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Can't be beaten. The service that Joep and his team provide just makes you feel at home and that is what this surrounding needs. When you have finished your meal you can sit bask and bask in the glory of Mount Taranaki or you can go and play with the kids outside.

You could really ask for anything more. Great menu, great food, great drink selection and great company.

Must do when in Taranaki.

“Sunday lunch”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 via mobile

Relaxed atmosphere, went with my husband and 3 kids for lunch. Great for the kids, very family friendly.
Meal sizes were good value for money.
On a clear day the view of the volcano would be amazing but too many clouds this time.
Would head back again, the waffles looked amazing!
