We searched for a spectacular restaurant to take an elderly couple to for lunch in the Rotorua district.
We chose Solitaire Lodge, certainly proved to be spectacular.
The drive out, position and views from the Lodge are all fantastic.
Service was faultless, from the personal welcome in the car park to farewell, again in the car park.
We were fortunate to have drinks and lunch served by the owners. We were looked after warmly, in a very personal manner, yet relaxed and friendly. We don't like stuffy, formal attention- Solitaire Lodge had just the right touch.
The food was truly amazing. Fresh, perfectly prepared and perfectly presented. Personal touch of meeting the chef is also special.
The experience made our parents feel very special, expect they will enjoy the memory for some time.
Would thoroughly recommend as a venue for a special occasion, we will certainly be returning.
