Description: 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.

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.

Located between the main dining area and the Lakeside, Terrace Kitchen was a welcome surprise. We didn’t want the noise and bustle of the nearby parade of restaurants, and were pleased to find this gem.
The food, beer, wine and service are all excellent. We had three plates from the sharers selections and enjoyed them all.

We had already eaten nibbles at a cocktail party so none of us were particularly hungry, but there were plenty of delicious small options and the staff were not bothered that we didn't eat much. Everyone agreed that what they had was delicious!

Best coffee, service, food and atmosphere. Cannot recommend Terrace kitchen enough. The interior design is beautiful and relaxing. We ordered the mothers breakfast and the eggs any style. Both of our meals were absolutely delicious. Cannot come to rotorua and not visit. Have been here twice now before heading back to auckland. Just sensational!

Deceptive from outside and when you enter they have a wonderful courtyard setting. Food was delicious and a step above the typical local offerings. A memorable time and will be back. Worthwhile for any occasion including that special event. Chef came to table and went through the menu with us. We had lots of fun.

Went there with my Mum for lunch. Service impeccable. Restaurant light and bright, crisp and clean. Indoor, patio and outdoor dining. Lots of refreshing meal choices. Mum brioche waffles a bit disappointing but the Flash mince in toast very tasty
