Eating Out In Rotorua

My family, friends and I have eaten at a lot of different places here over the years and we tend to stick to our favourites… as you do huh?

The dining here is fairly casual on the most part. This is no doubt due to a lot of visitors coming here, not only for the the tourism aspect but also for sports related events.

After a long day of seeing, playing and doing, who wants to go all out with dressing up? I know I don't. A pair of jeans and a tidy top. That's a bit of me, nice and relaxing.

Throughout the following pages you will find that the dollar signs indicate a general price structure:

$$ Middle of the road

$$$ More Expensive.

Rotorua Dining - Eat Street where the street is permanently closed off for diners.

What you won't find here are all the chain types of restaurants. We have a lot them sprinkled throughout the city. You've got the main ones like McDonald's, Subway, Burger King, Wendy's etc. It goes on and on.

Rotorua Cafes

Rotorua Cafes - The cafe culture is alive and thriving in Rotorua with a number of them being quite funky and quirky.

I find that quite a few are a blend between a restaurant and a cafe so you should check out the restaurant page as well.

Rotorua Pubs

There are some great Rotorua Pubs that serve up hearty meals along with full-bodied ales and lots of friendly banter. What more could you ask for?

We'll be looking at two local favourites. The Pig & Whistle and Hennessy's Irish Bar.

Rotorua Restaurants

Put this sampling of Rotorua Restaurants to the test, I'm sure at least one of them will appeal... and have you going back for more.

We've got quite a few restaurants, some are good, some not so good. I notice that even the majority of the ones that I write about have the odd bad review. I suppose it's all on the day as with most eating places.

Rotorua Takeaways

If you want a simple meal of fish & chips or chinese then these businesses in and near the inner city should suffice.

There is only one that stays open late (To 4am Fri & Sat and 11.30pm the rest of the week) so I have put that in as well - for all you late night revelers.
