We opted for the breakfast and 3 course dinner package... we are so glad we did. Exceptional quality of fresh produce and wines. The chef could work in any of the top restaurants around the world. Beautiful steak that melted in your mouth last night, salmon cooked to perfection the night before... topped off with a tiramisu with hand made... More

We stopped in for lunch today, it was just perfect. The setting is stunning. We sat outside, not many people around so it was quite peaceful. I had the pearl cous cous salad with calamari, it was very generous serving and very nicely presented, and the service was good. I thoroughly enjoyed the dish and a couple of glasses of... More

Enjoyed several meals here while staying at the lodge. The presentation and quality of all of the meals was excellent. Wine selection good too. Service was consistent even though it got very busy one night.

Food is ok, not great. Setting and staff awesome. We stayed there a few days, best meal by far was breakfast. Lunch and Dinner needs a bit of work, good once and if you are visiting the area nice place to go.

We were staying at the Te Mahia Resort and decided to go for a dinner meal to Raetihi Lodge on our last night. The place had been booked for a wedding over the three previous days so could not go earlier. We booked their water taxi ($18 per person for a return journey). This saved driving for 1.5 hours each... More

We had 4 meals in the restaurant whilst we stayed in Raetihi Lodge. It was very enjoyable sitting in the beautiful beachfront restaurant and enjoying good food. I loved superb fresh green lip mussels and my husband loved lamb. Meals were cooked carefully and tasty although might need to wait a bit long time but preferred slow cook and perfect.... More
