Description: 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.

“Rico, rico”
Reviewed 12 April 2017

This place serves great food! We went for dinner and shared a couple of tapas: the little pan with prawns and chorizo, and the risotto balls. They were both amazing. Then, we also shared the fish of the day, which was extremely fresh, and I loved that they just served it pan-fried so you can really taste it.
We also had the nut meringue torte for dessert, which was amazing.
Best place we tried in NZ!

“Great food - lovely environment”
Reviewed 11 April 2017

Great place for an inventive dinner of both small and large plates. Menu changes frequently but everything we tried was excellent. Good wine choices and my husband had a couple of excellent cocktails and an outstanding ginger beer. Just touring around Eat Street in downtown Rotorua is fun!

“Good Tasting Food”
Reviewed 11 April 2017

The 'sharing' food idea is new to me, and I have only seen it in NZ, We shared three small plates and three large plates between four of us, but that includes two with big appetites. We had plenty to eat and the food was beautifully cooked and delicious. Wine selection was good as was the service.

“One of the best meals we've had in NZ”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 via mobile

We have enjoyed many delicious meals in NZ and this ranks very highly among them!

We had the crumbed chicken, braised beef, haloumi salad, steak, barley salad and the spiced pear & coconut sago pudding.

Those with an experienced palate will really enjoy the creative dishes which are of a very high standard with a lot of attention to detail. The atmosphere and wait staff were equally impressive.

Would we return? Yes - definitely!
