This fantastic restaurant is located near the many hotels close to Te Puia. Obviously popular with the locals, but also very friendly to visitors. The food is elegant and creative and the service is excellent. Try the lamb tenderloin - some of the other portions of dish might sound a little challenging (anchovies and capers?), but work well with the dish.

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel as it was nearby and served good food. We were not disappointed. The staff were very attentive and polite and the food was very tasty. They had some interesting dishes and flavour combinations on the menu. The cost of the meal with two glasses of wine, a side salad as a starter and two main courses came to NZD 93 which was not cheap for what we had.

The best resturant we have visited in Rotorua. We celebrated my wife's birthday, the meal was superb service excellent and when the cheese and biscuits came with a wonderful port the evening was complete. At the end l had to commend the owner and say Thank you for a great night.

We decided to come here due to it's convenient location on Fenton Street. This place was a nice surprise - very quiet and just a touch of elegance without the white table cloths. We both had the fish special of the day (sorry...forgot the name but was told it was a fish native to NZ) and it was delicious. They also have a great wine selection. We enjoyed the awesome service and would highly recommend if you're looking for a quiet, semi-formal dinner.
