We joined the Hukawai Lodge for two breakfasts and were thankful that we did. The food was superb with the majority of the food prepared on site and what wasn't was locally-sourced. Having little knowledge of true Maori cuisine, the dining at the Hukawai Lodge was was an excellent introduction. The homemade and home-grown food made this by far the best meal we had on our vacation. While we did not have any dietary restrictions, we were offered multiple options that would allow for any preferences.

Most of all, however, the stand out aspect of our meal was the service. We were extremely well taken care of and had wonderful conversations with the owners and employees. We felt extremely welcomed and our meals at the Hukawai Lodge are still discussed as a highlight of our 3 week trip to New Zealand.
