Just popped in for a hot drink after doing the 3D Art Gallery. Lovely views of the farm from the outdoor tables. Lucky our drinks were piping hot, because sadly they had no flavour. We had a mix of coffee and hot chocolate and the...were all watery and insipid. The service was polite and friendly and the place was clean and well laid out.More

We had a great dinner, cooked our own meat at our table. We had chicken and beef with a variety of sides (salads, fries, miso soups and other Korean specialities). Meat and sides were unlimited but first round was very generous and didn't need to...ask for more.More

After going to the 3D museum we decided to try the Farmside bbq. We had a great experience at dinner, the staff and food were very good. We would come back next time we are in Rotorua.

A real new experience. Cook yourself with unlimited meats within your sights. The staff was very careful about our progression. We never have to ask for anything, they were on top of their job. Good work, we enjoyed and will come back.
