Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had an amazing night with my wife at Roquette. Baru's service was impeccable, very friendly and great recommendations. And Romel in the kitchen is fantastic, every dish was to die for.

The young lady that was our waitress for the evening was very nice. Meal service was done in good time. Food was very tasty, however the carrots were cut too big, and the breads came out with the entree. A very good experience over all....Roquette is still our favourite restaurant for special occasions.More

Very attentive staff and the food was divine! Four of us dined and everyone's meals were delicious! Baru was our server and was super friendly as we're the rest of the team. A very highly recommended restaurant, not to noisy which makes a huge difference...when wanting to chat with friends, and background music!More

I had some fish and chips. Wow! Stunning. No words to express. I highly recommend everyone to have a try. I should try other cuisines as well. One plate of fish and chip was sufficient enough for my lunch.

Very tasty rich portions which also were beatyful to look at. Clean and silent surrounds. We found by walking round the building.

The food was great, service was alright, the 3 hour wait to get out though, not too sure about that one, I paid $191 didnt realise I was committing my entire evening with nothing but water and ginger beer on my table.

Wow did we have the most amazing meal! we sat outside and the atmosphere was incredible. We had Baru as our server, and he was incredibly polite, courteous, and made our experience so memorable. The food was served quickly, the price was on the steeper...end but you’ll understand why when you see the quality of the food. with a mix of Lamb, fish and squid; this is an amazing place to try genuine quality New Zealand cuisine. couldn’t recommend more!More

Fabulous meal at Roquette tonight. What a find! The food was absolutely excellent and beautifully presented. We had battered fish and a duo of fish which came with a beautiful sauce. Fish all cooked to perfection! And crisp battered prawns on the side. We sat...next to the kitchen and watched in awe at all the food going out If anything, the desserts were even better but the best part of the meal was the service. Flawless and so refreshing to have fabulous, helpful staff esp after fairly poor service in so many New Zealand restaurants. Baru was exceptional! Thank you for a great evening. Sadly only here for one night but this will undoubtedly be our first port of call when back in the areaMore
