We were travelling through Rotorua and had an amazing dinner at Terrace Kitchen. Amazing mocktails, food and dessert!! We’d totally recommend this restaurant. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Must try are pork ribs for the main, and churros for dessert!

The waiter was very friendly and helpful. The meals were ten out of ten for taste and size. The out door play area for the kids was great too.

Terrace Kitchen has build a deserved reputation for both the food and service. Staff were fantastic - really friendly and happy! Food was innovative and very good. We were there for dinner but have been told the breakfasts and lunches are also great!

Contemporary decor and cool vibes abound in this all-day eatery; with a bustling open kitchen serving up an innovative menu of homemade, modern NZ food from early till late. Daytime diners should check out the Atomic coffee, creative cocktails and craft beer selection - all best enjoyed with food on the sunny, geo-thermally heated porch, which overlooks a sprawling back lawn with bikes, dress ups and a playhouse to occupy the kids. Evening diners can explore a menu filled with seasonal chef specials produced by a passionate team, in a modern dining room filled with tables of marble and oak, white brick walls and lots of leafy plants. Tonic Bar upstairs opens at 5 pm, with a carefully curated wine list stocked with a selection of NZ wines and signature cocktails. Its balconies overlook the adjoining park and lakefront; the perfect place to unwind. Terrace Kitchen is located 100 m beyond Eat St, between Novotel and the Rotorua lakefront.
