After carefully studying all the menus on display outside the various restaurants in the Eat Street quarter of Rotorua we settled on this shared plates (tapas style) restaurant with the quirky name (think To Kill a Mockingbird). It lived up to expectations with great service...More

Small share plates, with great variety - seemed to have a Mediterranean slant, but all very well prepared. Good beer and wine, but the service was the highlight - fast and efficient. We had some vegetarian dishes, lamb & chicken, and all were excellent! There...More

Great food, excellent service, would be a good place for a casual night out with friends. This is a tapas bar, so expect casual drinking and eating rather than set courses. This is common elsewhere but not so common in NZ. Had a bustling atmosphere,...More

Thanks for your review. We just added today a draft beer which will definitely fill the gap you identified. We now have Estrella Damm a Barcelona lager on tap. The beer suits out style of dining and will match well with many of our dishes.

Atticus Finch was created for your enjoyment in mind! The Atticus Finch team turns dining into more than just a meal - Where you can linger over lively conversation, playful plates and thoughtful concoctions. The vibe of Atticus Finch is speakeasy meets metropolitan bistro. Our house was made for entertaining - situated in the middle of "Eat Streat", taking advantage of the geothermal under floor heating of the concrete outside, retractable awning and covered walkway. Our dining menu is designed to share, a combination of carefully selected ingredients that allow a series of tastes to be passed around and enjoyed together. Our food is fresh, innovative, flavoursome and made from scratch. The beverage menu showcases inspired selections of local craft beer, wine by the glass and seasonally crafted cocktails made with our own syrups, fresh fruit and herbs. Simply put, Atticus Finch is a great place to gather with friends and enjoy the best pours and plates in town. Drink with us, Dine with us, Share with us.
