Thank you for leaving your review, to say we are shocked by your comment is an understatement! We remember your group well, and there were no complaints from you on completion of your tea & Cakes and what little bit of cake that was left within your group was requested to be boxed up and taken away. Should you have been that unhappy we would have liked to discussed this with you at the time.
We are well known for our cakes and our Chef who makes them has a double distinction with a speciality in Patisserie. Our cakes are made from scratch using real cream and butter and do taste very different from the average packet cakes one might be comparing them to.

We ended up here almost by mistake. We were staying in Roturua and having checked Trip Advisor had set out to eat ealsewhere, we didn't like the look of the place and so diverted to here, arn't I glad we did.

The place could do with a visit from an interior designer and the staff could be more attentive. That said the food is first class and the desserts to die for. Value for money, most definitely.

Like some other reviews, I found the service was at a bit of a languid pace. That said, it's probably good for anyone on a date or having a get-together with friends. The food though, is definitely worth the wait and the staff are extremely pleasant. If I'm in Rotorua again, I'll be sure to stop by. I had the Spaghetti Ciccio, and the portions are definitely as big as the flavour.
