Description: HUHU Cafe offers visitors to Waitomo the opportunity to sample great New Zealand cuisine in a beautiful setting. We offer a delicious evening menu, perfect for enjoying with a cold one on the sunny deck after a hard day's caving or glow-worm spotting! You can enjoy delicious treats such as Caramelised Garlic & Goats Cheese Tart, Wild Rabbit Hotpot, Organic Rib-Eye, Dark Chocolate Souffle & Poached Tamarillos to name but a few (please note that our menu changes on a regular basis, depending on what we can source from our suppliers). Wherever possible, we use local providers - our lamb comes from farms around Te Kuiti, our cheese from Putaruru & our berries (when in season) are from Piopio. Our wine list consists of a number of great New Zealand wine varieties and our beer list features a selection of boutique beers to whet the whistle! Cosy up by our woodburner during the winter months or chill out on our deck over summer... Have we tempted your tastebuds? Well then, we look forward to seeing you at HUHU sometime soon!

My wife and I were only in Waitomo for one night but our hosts at the Abseil Inn recommended the Huhu Cafe for dinner. There weren't a lot of options in Waitomo so we went to check it out. The food was absolutely fantastic! Make sure you leave room for dessert because the peanut butter parfait is out of this world! If you're staying in Waitomo, definitely come and eat here. It'll be the best meal of your trip!

We had the pulled pork and enjoyed it but found the noisy atmosphere from the company events that evening and didn't find the prices a little high given the location.

We stayed at Waitomo Top 10 and Huhu was located right beside it.

Centrally located around the Waitomo tourist site area. Great food, great atmosphere.

We arrived quite late at night and was scared they were closing, but they took us in and the staffs were super friendly.

Free wifi as well =)
