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!

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful food, good choice of drinks, all served up by friendly staff (who genuinely seem to enjoy their jobs) in a cool location. If you're staying nearby, or just passing through, definitely worth a visit.

“The reviews are correct.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

Very good meal in a unique location. We were tired from our drive from Auckland, and the plane ride from the US. Service was prompt and courteous. Staff seemed pleased that we were there.
