“Decent food, next to Chateau Tongariro”
Review of Tussock

Tussock
Ranked #4 of 5 Restaurants in Whakapapa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 January 2018

This restaurant is a short walk from Chateau Tongariro, and is owned by it. A large bar-restaurant with a menu that tends to meat and New Zealand dishes. Food was fair but a fun place to visit with pool tables and a very busy bar scene.

no special atmosphere but a place where you can get nice burgers, fries, etc and a good beer, prices a ok for the location within a ski region.
they also sell food and drinks wholesale, so if you are camper or self catering you can buy your stuff here

Very few options in the area. You'd be better to cook for yourself. Old place. Pizza undercooked. Not great.

We stopped in this restaurant for a diner and it was very good.
The atmosphere is nice, great music and warm people.
I recommend this place for everyone who want to relax and enjoy their evening.

Thx for the light... ;-)

Ate here one night whilst staying at the Chateau Tongariro. It’s a really causal setting and staff were all really pleasant. We had 2 pizzas which were decent enough. They unfortunately forgot my pizza order and I had to remind the staff that I hadn’t received my meal. The staff staff quickly rectified this and my pizza was brought out within the next 15 minutes. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a quick causal supper and in the area.
