Lake views, roaring fireplace, friendly very professional wait staff! And then there is the food, beautifully presented, very well cooked, and delicious.

We as a family of four adults were looking for somewhere quiet for a nice meal. Went in to book and was told that they had a large group coming in but if we were prepared to dine early they could serve us.We received prompt...and friendly service and the meal was great. Would certainly go back again if in the area.More

We had a room in the hotel and decided to eat at the restaurant. I had the lamb which was very good but the risotto cake was unexpected. We took a bottle of white wine but didn't get anything to keep it cool on the...table as our table neighbors got something. We first choose a bottle of wine which the waiter suggested and 5 min later, he came back to tell us that this wine was sold out. The pineapple tatin was not a success. The crust was completely wet which was very disappointed. To finish, we didn't even have time for a coffee or a tea because we got the bill before we asked for it. Not a memorable dinnerMore

We ate here out of sheer laziness as we were staying within walking distance. We were told that food was good but with just one chef service could be slow. Well we didn’t suffer with this. Food was delicious.

Firstly this restaurant is now called The Grill and is part of the VR resort 10 km out of Rotorua. We were staying at the resort and I had read the reviews but they were around 2 years ago so there could have been a...change of chefs. Anyway I can say that this was the best food and service I have had for a while! The staff were attentive and friendly and the food was fantastic. I had the lamb and my partner the fish! Both dishes were top class and of good proportion. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.More

The staff member who looked after us was very accommodating and charming, especially given that we arrived at the very end of the breakfast timeslot and stayed past the end of it! We had proper barista-made coffee which was spot on.
