“Lots of staff, bit too in yer face.”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

We only had drinks so can't comment on the food but the service was slow despite there being heaps of staff. Our drinks were served one after the other with a good delay between them and the hot chocolate was not good.

“Exceptional service complimented by a scrumptious meal”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

We dinned at the recently reopened Te Motu on a Sunday afternoon. The menu is very well considered, with classic cooking styles with an interesting twist. Save some space for the deserts as they are a stand out!

The wine options matched the food brilliantly, and the service was professional and friendly.

“Needs to work on adding value for dinner”
Reviewed April 14, 2010

The wine in predominantly red with little section of white wines.

The food was actually fine but just felt the methods used to present the food was very dated i.e used way to much sauce on the plate for both meals.

In comparison to other top places on the Island we felt the price was excessive, I think they would do better if they made the meals more basic and better value for money.

Left with that feeling "Man that was a lot of money for what is was"


On the positive side this place has a great outdoor area. We have been here in the summer and its great outside that main dinning area.


3 wines, 2 Mains and 1 desert $148
