The food, the service and the setting was stunning, we went away very very impressed. We had been given a voucher there for Christmas from my brother and sister in law as they had read about it on trip advisor. I am so so glad they did as it was exquisite.

Hidden away, this was a great find for a Sunday brunch for 2. Eggs Benedict and French toast was not too challenging for the chef, but freshly prepared and very nicely presented. Good service and helpful staff. Nice end to a weekend away. Would definitely go back.

This restaurant has a wonderful outside setting where you are surrounded by lush jungle greenery. Both the crispy duck and the Angus beef were excellent. It took a long time to get our bill. We had to ask twice before we got it. That was a shame because the food was top quality.

It was our 7th visit to Wharepuke restaurant and this time, we were a group of 7. Thanks to early booking, we got a nice table outside amidst the lush green.
We all ordered different starters and mains, and everybody enjoyed their food. The bruschetta with mozzarella was the best to be found in New Zealand, and the Thai Chicken was spot on. Deserts are too tempting to skip them, and we loved what we got. Ice cream is homemade and that you can taste.
We will be back, soon.

Local friends mentioned that they had a great lunch at Food and this prompted us to call in. We had been a year earlier so we knew what to expect and we were not disappointed. Orders are taken promptly but as the food is freshly prepared expect a fairly long wait for your entree, half an hour last year, half an hour this. But as the header says, it is worth the wait unless you are on a tight schedule. Once the entree is finished the main course follows promptly. Not cheap and nor should it be, the ingredients are first class and well prepared. If it is a very warm day it may be worth reserving a table in advance outside in the garden away from the building, the surroundings are beautiful and more than compensate for any long distance sea views elsewhere in this area.
On the Michelin Guide basis this is a "worth a detour" restaurant.
