First time visiting for breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised. Good range of options with lots of yummy flavours! Best to make a booking even in the mornings as it filled up quickly.

We hardly can imagine that someone was not satisfied in this lovely restaurant (should be the number 1 in town); we've got delicioius food with great wines and a nice and helpful staff. Amazing spot next to the local park and Rotorua lake. Really fine...More

We have just eaten here with our American visitor after reading a recommendation in the Dish magazine. Why are they serving reheated wedges ? My buratta salad was small and tasteless. It should be better, a shame. A good restaurant has to be consistent.

We went for breakfast today. I ordered waffles. They were large but dry without anything to moisten them. Husband had poached eggs and bacon. Eggs were done nicely but bacon dry like leather. One staff member in particular was very unfriendly. Didn't smile or acknowledge...More

It's been a relief to find such a nice place for breakfast and I'd really recommend it for lunch and dinner, had I had the opportunity to test these meals too. Based solely on my brekkie experience, I'd give it a go.

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. Daytime diners should check out the Atomic coffee, creative cocktails and craft beer selection - all best enjoyed with food on the sunny, geo-thermally heated porch, which overlooks a sprawling back lawn with bikes, dress ups and a playhouse to occupy the kids. 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.
