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!

We only went here due to Trip Advisor review and it was certainly an outstanding meal. Great service and fantastic food. With 9 year olds and an elderly Japanese couple with us the menu met all needs. Would definitely come back and can't recommend enough. Thanks Huhu Cafe for a great end to the day!

Mad if you don't! Great cafe with excellent service and menu choices that are simple and done well. Lamb shanks, steak and pork belly were our selections and did not dissapoint! Do try the peanut butter parfait for dessert - yummy.

This place is close to Waitomo caves and is an excellent restaurant.
ll the food that we ordered was very good and so was the service. Our only disappointment was from the organic local beer that was highly recommended to us. We found it to be flat and tasted almost like Coca-Cola.

We stopped at Huhu before heading to Rotorua. The restaurant has a very nice feel. The menu is not big but at least it made it easier for us to choose. Everything was well prepared and the service was friendly and quick. Their Peanut Butter Parfait is a must try! YUM!
