Hi, we arrived at 8.30 for dinner on Friday night to be told that the kitchen was closed for the evening! The restaurant was buzzing and about half full of people at this time. My husband and I couldn't believe it. What a very great shame. I wonder if the owner of this restaurant is aware that his staff are turning away business so early in the evening. More disappointing as we have been to dinner here before and had a lovely meal. Bad roquette!

We had Roquette recommended to us and were pleasantly surprised to find such a fine dining restaurant very close to the waterfront in provincial NZ.

We were welcomed and seated in a friendly, professional manner then well looked after throughout our meal which we were very impressed with. So much so we went back a second time the following night. Again we had a similar experience.

All food was very tasty, fresh and well presented.

Prices are what could be considered to be on the high side but given our experience, we thought they were appropriate for what we had.

Would go there again if returning to Whakatane.

Wonderful value early bird dinner - pleased we arrived when we did as the restaurant was soon full and turning people away. Both the wild boar sausage pasta and seafood rissotto (willingly offered to replace the (gluten) pasta) superb,
Can totally recommend - friendly professional service and delicious food in a stylish setting.
