Meals can be very average and limited choices. As it next to the bowling and other activities at Motion Entertainment it can be quite noisy. Good place to have a group meal if visiting to take part in the other activities.

We ate here last night as a family group, adults, teenager and children. I must say the food is not as good as it used to be. In fact a little disappointed and probably won't eat here again. And we have eaten here several times...since it opened. Prices seem to have gone up and quality down. We ordered 7 meals last night and when they were served to table one had been forgotten, tho the waiter said it hadn't. It did come out a short time later, but disappointing that we watched him go to check that it had been ordered with chef. And then come back a while later to say it would be a few mins away. All other orders came out in good time, not a huge wait as we have had in other visits. Mainly burgers were ordered which looked good, but on eating were very average and the patties/or chicken in them were quite dry. I had the New Yorker which was extremely salty, I think it was the relish in it. And it also stated onion rings in burger, There is one onion ring. Picky of me possibly but it does state "rings". Tho I guess still reasonably priced it has gone up quite a bit since last visit a few months ago and menu seems to change each time we have been in. Good spot for a a bite to eat if you are taking a visit to other activities.More

We (3 adults n 7 kids) had an awesome platter lunch here! Yummy homemade pizza, more wedges, nuggets, etc than we could eat (doggy bag provided🐶) with ice cold jugs of pink lemonade. Great value !

We ate here a few nights ago, before going to play a game of Lumberjax. The bistro is situated in the Motion Entertainment Centre in Rotorua. Very reasonably priced meals, with good choices for the whole family. Good spot to stop for either just a...drink, snacks or a meal while taking part in the activities at the centre. Nachos are very good and it is a good sized meal. Nice to have the freshly chopped capsicum and onion type salsa and not too much cheese. Really suited me. I can recommend to everyone. Also caramel frappe was very good too. My grand daughter enjoyed her smoothie also. Reasonable sized seating area central to all activities. As some people have commented there is a certain amount of noise from activities, but that is to be expected and we didn't find it a problem at all. And it is a cafe in an amusement centre, that is very open and you can watch children take part in activities while you have a coffee etc.More

We had some lunch here, the name and the look of the bar must have given me false hopes for the food, although the cheap pricing should probably have given it away despite all sounding nice enough. Of the 3 dishes ordered the only edible...thing was the tandoori chicken pizza. The biggest dissapointment was the Mexican Mince and Fries, the mince had no flavour at all and the fries aren't great. As for the Chicken Burger, it was described on the menu as "crumbed thigh" with lettuce and tomato, served to the table as pieces of grey/brownish slimey looking chicken with coleslaw slopped on top... I asked my partner not to eat it. We left most of the food and nobody seemed to care. There's a lot of potential for this to be a nice place and it's obvious money was spent kitting it out so hopefully the owners/management will improve their products and staff training before it's too late for a revival.More

I have heard mixed responses to Revived, but a young friend raved about the place, so decided to check it out to see if it would be a good place to go for a birthday dinner. The Bistro is positioned in the centre of the...entertainment centre, so I guess you could supervise your children playing while enjoying a coffee, snack etc. For me I found this noisy and didn't enjoy it at all. We chose a piece of brownie which came out dumped on a plate with a cake fork. The brownie was quite dry.More
