Description: Volcanoview Restaurant established 26 January 2011. Friendly priced family restaurant with table service. No need to order at the bar, we come to you. Our food is healthy. Most of the dishes are gluten free, we grow our own lettuce, vegetables, capsicums, bake our own cakes, buns, bread, make our own beef/fish/veggie burger patties and all our sauces except mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. So we know that what we serve is good healthy food. Further we cater for weddings, parties, work do's, functions, funerals, you name it. Average cost for a full fledge dinner buffet is $ 37,50 per head. The funny - if you can call it funny - thing is that we are ranked 111 out of 120 restaurants in New Plymouth by the guys who manage this international web site, whilst the average review over all these years results in a rating of 4,5 stars. Well, no worry, this is the place to be for young and old. Everyone can use the free pedal carts.Three flying foxes are all located on a private property. The use of the flying foxes is at your own risk, because Volcanoview, the management and our staff cannot be held responsible for any accidents. If you stick to the rules, nothing is likely to happen. Apart from the restaurant we offer camp ground, cabin and B&B facilities. All reasonable priced and the awesome views of Mt Egmont are totally free of charge. Hope to see you soon. Kind regards, Joep & Anemoon & Kathy

“Dutch Quality”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

A variety of food, based on Dutch specialties in a friendly atmosphere setting and, weather permitting, a stunning view of the volcano Taranaki/Mt. Egmont. Friendly staff and fast service. Little extra touches like a special sweet biscuit with your tea, coffee or hot chocolate make it a very enjoyable experience.
And a very child friendly setting too, with plenty of outdoor space and activities made available, including Go-Cars and a Flying Fox.

“Quality Dinning”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I have been to VolcaNoview on a number of occasions and never get tired of the quality of the food, atmosphere or the great hosts. This truly is one of Taranaki's treasures. Weather you are after brunch, lunch, dinner or just a great coffee and nibbles this caters for all. With the indoor outdoor flow and the picturesque surroundings this is a real gem, and to have available pedal karts and a flying fox free to use is really something special. Catering for all ages this place is one that I highly recommend. Thanks to the staff and owners for making this such an awesome place to enjoy great food and great company. See you again soon.

“Very Good Food”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Had breakfast there and i must say it was really good. The service was good, it was clean, friendly staff and a big outdoor play area for the kids. I had a savory pancake which came quite quickly and i know it was cooked there and then because you can see them cooking it. Last of all it has a amazing view of Mt Taranaki.
