After completing the Crossing on Dec 26, my partner and I were looking for a vegetarian-option dinner. We chose the Spiral, ordered our meals at the bar and hoped for the best.

It turned out that the chef is vegan and s/he prepared a delicious salad with fresh tofu, and cooked up a TERRIFIC, filling quinoa burger with hummus and all the fixings.

After the meal, we ordered a mud chocolate dessert with ice cream and fruit. It ROCKED! Yes, I know we were hungry, but they made our tenth wedding anniversary dinner unforgettable, filling and delicious.

To top it off, they didn't make us feel guilty about the hiking clothes we were still wearing, because we didn't have the time to drive the hour to get a shower and changed.

Big thanks! Lisa and Troy

Went to two restaurants for dinner while staying in National Park. I think Spiral is just an okay place to eat. The staff were friendly. The food portion was small but price is about the same as another restaurant close by. We ordered a Thai salad and fish and chip, both were okay but nothing special.

Called into cafe for breakfast on my way to whanganui. Was around 8.49am and a few tourists in cafe. Ordered coffee and cooked breakfast and overheard chef say in grumpy voice hope they are not in a hurry as not organised. Little embarrassing if this is how our tourists are treated :-(
Gentlemen serving me however was very pleasant and accomodating even when having issues with eftpos.
Meal arrived and was okay, over cooked poached eggs but I was hungry so overlooked this.

We were starving an wanted a pizza. We tried another place and it was already shut (around 8.30pm). We went here, and they had food service for 10 more minutes. We got a pizza (decidedly average) and a slice of mudcake (very nice). The bar has some nice historical memorabilia.
