Confirm restaurant is now called "Maha", and menu / ownership is completely different. All reviews for "Food at Wharapuke" are now irrelevant. One Star rating is not a rating for replacement restaurant.

This restaurant has now closed and is a completely different menu and different name. The owners have sold and moved on - this should be taken down as it is misleading that this is story on tripadvisor.

A beautiful evening. Arrived and walked through tropical garden. Unfortunately this is closing end of October and a big shame for Kerikeri. Amazing food and congrats to owner operator chef. Could not fault anything, staff friendly and professional. A must before end of October.

We have dined at Wharepuke a number of times over the years and find them consistently high quality in both food and service. Asian fusion dishes are excellent, as well as the classic standards, and Colin's Panacotta is superb! It is also great to see...More

Surrounded by native bush, excellent service and food. A very relaxing and low key place, but perfect for our small family reunion.

The people aspect of this establishment is what makes it memorable. We were visitors over two days, first for coffee and then again for lunch. The staff on both days were incredibly friendly, professional and accommodating. The food for lunch was good quality, well cooked,...More
